LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Cash — Blood, Sweat, & Tears ... CD 5.99

A real classic from the early years of Johnny Cash on Columbia Records – a time when he was moving from just a simple country singer, into a role where he was single-handedly addressing issues of American history, masculinity, and social identity with songs like these! The tunes definitely live up to the promise of the cover – and Johnny's look on the cover – with a mix of classic themes and biting commentary on the life of the working man, of the sort that made Cash a huge influence on generations to come. The Carter Family provide a bit of help at times – and titles include "Busted", "Another Man Done Gone", "Tell Him I'm Gone", "Waiting For A Train", "Roughneck", and "Chain Gang". (2 eye mono pressing.)  © 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.

Was there a more tragic figure in the 60s scene than Phil Ochs? Perhaps, but this is still a wonderful piece of his odd and sad career, a great portrait with his unrelenting political stance still in place, though not as raw as some of his other LPs.

Just a slight step down from the monumental Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc., but still a near masterpiece of neo-traditional Bakersfield country.
