LP (Item 614206) Atco, 1967 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP


Sonny without Cher – and sounding pretty darn amazing! The album's a really unique solo effort from the man on the LA scene – and as you might guess from the title, one that's a lot more cerebral than the jangly pop he was better known for at the time – almost psychedelic at times, with some really "right on" lyrics that kind of take off where "The Beat Goes On" ended – offering up some commentary on the times, with tripped-out arrangements that definitely fit the flavor of the lyrics! The leadoff track – "I Just Sit There" – is a stunning twelve minutes long – and the whole album hangs together line a suite of similarly-themed tunes – with other titles that include "I Just Told My Girl To Go Away", "I Would Marry You Today", "My Best Friend's Girl Is Out Of Sight", and the ultra-groovy drug song "Pammie's On A Bummer". (Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

One of the better moments of the underground scene on Atlantic at the end of the 60s – a pretty cool little group led by Noel Redding!

This Is Tim Hardin
Atco, 1967. Very Good+
Rootsier material than you might be used to from Tim Hardin – tracks that were recorded before his famous albums on Verve in the mid 60s, but issued later by Atlantic Records – obviously in an attempt to rush some Hardin material on the market!

A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness!

Elektra, 1967. Very Good+
What can we say? This is one of the greatest albums of all time!
