Radio-Activity

LP (Item 62510) Capitol, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

Spacey sounds from out of the ether – Kraftwerk's wonderful tribute to radio, spun out in the same spare electronics they used to give some love to the computer, too! The album's the first by the group to really work as a unified suite of tracks – building up wonderfully over the course of both sides of the record – with themes that return, and bubble through other themes – creating a sense of careful, conceptual interplay that really blows away most of their 70s contemporaries – at the same time winning them a much bigger audience in the mainstream. Titles include "Radioland", "Airwaves", "News", "The Voice Of Energy", 'Uranium", "News", and "Ohm Sweet Ohm".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US red label Capitol pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeve – which has some waviness. Cover has minimal wear.)

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.

20/20
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
An understated masterpiece from The Beach Boys – a record that's probably best known for its inclusion of some key tracks from the Smile sessions – but an album that stands pretty darn nicely on its own! The group are really maturing here – and the mix of Smile-era songs and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Seger System

Ramblin' Gamblin' Man
Capitol, 1969. Very Good+
Heavy psych from Detroit, in the years before Bob Seger became a "lighters in the air" peddler of redneck theme songs. Cut from the same cloth as the early Mitch Ryder, Amboy Dukes and Grand Funk that were the hallmark of the Motor City rock sound of the day, most of the tracks on this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1970. Very Good+
A fantastic classic from The Band – a set that's hardly got them cowering in the corner the way the "stage fright" title might imply – and which instead seems to have the group at their most confident during the early years, effortlessly spinning impeccable musicianship and ...

Quicksilver Messenger Service
Capitol, 1968. Sealed
One of the most progressive albums on the American scene of the late 60s – a set that's definitely psych, but which has a put-together quality that's something else as well! The group still have plenty of the optimistic charms you'd expect from their placement on the SF scene of the period ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smiley Smile
Brother/Capitol, 1967. Very Good-
The slimmed-down, single LP effort that Capitol issued after the collapse of the legendary Smile album – and a pretty sublime set nonetheless! Sure, some might argue that you can't enjoy Brian Wilson's genius until you've listened to 20 bootlegs of the sessions with dozens of takes on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pacific Gas & Electric

PG&E
Columbia, 1971. Near Mint-
An early 70s album for Columbia by PG&E – a really strong set with great rock & soul groove in the best style of some of the other Bay Area crossover groups from the time! The line up here is augmented by some positively soaring backing chorus vocals credited to the Blackberries ... LP, Vinyl record album

Flying Burrito Brothers
A&M, 1971. Near Mint-
The Burritos first LP, post-Parsons – and a pretty strong statement for the merits of the now unquestioned leader, Rick Roberts, and multi-instrumentalist new guy Bernie Leadon, who would later turn to the dark side and join the Eagles! Roberts penned or co-penned seven of the album's ten ... LP, Vinyl record album
EG, 1983. Near Mint-
An airy, atmospheric classic from Brian Eno – as you might guess from the title – a record that fits in very strongly with his initial Ambient series of albums, but which was also used to accompany a documentary film on the Apollo space flights!
