American Flyer

LP (Item 623983) United Artists, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

The folksy image on the cover hides the heavyweight 70s talents within – a surprising group lineup that includes Steve Katz, Eric Kaz, and Doug Yule – working here with some top-shelf production from George Martin! The set's maybe not as perfectly polished as Martin's work with America, but it's in a similar form – some down-to-earth cats who've got a real ear for the right side of songwriting, able to work in a studio setting without losing their individuality – coming together with just the right amount of warmth to augment their charms, but never in a way that's too commercial. Titles include "The Woman In Your Heart", "Queen Of All My Days", "Call Me Tell Me", "Light Of Your Love", "Back In 57", and "Lady Blue Eyes".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a peeled tracklist sticker.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
