Kapt Kopter & The Fabulous Twirly Birds

LP (Item 619872) Epic, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+

Heavy early 70s grooves from Randy California – the former Spirit guitarist, and a solid post Hendrix, post psychedelica album cut for Epic! Fellow Spirit veteran Ed Cassidy is on drums under a pseudonym, and other pseudonymous guests include Noel Redding – and all told, there's a trippy, echoey heaviness to the proceedings that's pretty sweet. Titles include "Downer", "Devil", "I Don't Want Nobody", a heavy, heavy take on "Day Tripper" and an equally wigged out cover of Paul Simon's "Mother And Child Reunion", plus "Things Yet To Come", "Rain", "Rainbow" and more.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow label stereo pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear, small center split in the bottom seam, and some sticker remnants on back.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Todd Rundgren

Something/Anything?
Bearsville, 1972. Very Good 2LP gatefold
Arguably one of the greatest pop albums of all time – a pure act of genius from Todd Rundgren, and one of the few cases in rock music where two records are actually better than one! The double-length set was Rundgren's third solo effort after the breakup of Nazz – but it's a broad step ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. Very Good
Landmark work from The Dead Kennedys – and maybe still one of the greatest punk records to ever come from the American scene!
