Stonedhenge

LP (Item 625396) Deram, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

The title and cover are a great illustration of the direction that Ten Years After is taking here – a really wonderful blend of trippier influences with the sharp-edged, blues-influenced sound at their core! Even a look at the surface of the record will show you that something different is going on – as one track will be long, the other quite short, and others of varying lengths – really showcasing the variety the group's breaking out with here! Alvin Lee is completely on fire – really hitting Hendrix territory at a few points, such as the incredible "Skoobly Oobly Doobob", which features him scatting alongside a super-fast guitar part! Other titles are equally inventive – as are some of the way the sounds come across, even from familiar instruments – on titles that include "Hear Me Calling", "Going To Try", "Woman Trouble", "No Title", "Faro", "Speed Kills", and "A Sad Song".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Undead
Deram, 1968. Very Good+
A searing live document of the magic of Ten Years After – recorded at London's Klooks Kleek as a great example of the kind of sound that got the group a huge amount of attention before they were even signed to a record label! The sound's still got some of the bluesy influences that both the ... LP, Vinyl record album

A fantastic idea – the complex prog sounds of Caravan, matched with larger orchestrations – all with a sound that's completely sublime! Tracks are all nice and long – and features Pye Hastings on vocals and guitar, and Dave Sinclair on electric piano, organ, and electronics! LP, Vinyl record album

Incesticide
Geffen, Late 80s/Early 90s. Very Good+
Nirvana's riveting Incesticide – which at the time, looked like a mere placeholder for Geffen to sate the suddenly massive new fanbase of the band, between proper albums – but it turned out to be nearly as essential as anything they'd ever put out! A great batch of songs that are as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gaucho
MCA, 1980. Very Good+
The last album in the classic run of Steely Dan – the final taste we'd have of the group until their surprising revival in the 90s! Gaucho picks up beautifully where Aja left off – warmly produced with a deep undercurrent of jazz, but perhaps a bit more down to earth feel at times too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Can't Buy A Thrill
ABC, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
The first album from Steely Dan, and already a leading light in the world of 70s rock! The album's got a bit less of the polish of later years, but is still filled with gems – the kind of tunes that nobody ever seemed to pen before, and which few other groups could match later – ...

Santana

Welcome
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sadly, it's really easy to dismiss Santana, if only for his having been elevated to iconic status among hippies and classic rock lovers, in spite of the fact that he made a number of great records. This early 70s effort finds him moving in a more jazzy direction, with supple rhythms underpinning ... LP, Vinyl record album
