Great work from the trippier period of Tommy Roe's career – a time when he was picking up some much headier influences in his music, as you might guess from the spelling of the title! There's still a bit of a pop undercurrent in the music, but it's also inflected by odd use of strings, strange-sounding guitar, and other instrumental elements that work against the sweeter qualities of Tommy's vocals to help give these songs a fair amount of depth. Most tracks are originals by Roe, but the album also features a few by Sandy Salisbury, who also sings a bit on the record – as part of the harmony backup that surfaces on some of the better tunes. Arrangements are by Mike Henderson, and titles include "Plastic World", "Paisley Dreams", "Mystic Magic", "The Executive", "The You I Need", "It's Gonna Hurt Me", and "Little Miss Sunshine".

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Greatest Hits
ABC, 1970s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
We've always considered Steely Dan one of the quintessential 70s "Album Oriented Rock" bands, in that all of there albums work so well as a whole, so the idea of a greatest hits collection doesn't exactly work for us.

Fourth (4)
Columbia, 1970. Very Good+
An almost all-jazz release by Soft Machine – and a tasty bit of proggish tunes with a spare electric modal groove.
