Alive

LP (Item 635925) Liberty, 1969 — Condition: Very Good-
Gatefold

Right from the start, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band were wonderful in the studio – but as this album will show, they were even more vibrant in a live setting – a format that would give them some of their best records over the years! This set has the group working at a level that's both technically sharp and whimsically goofy – completely respectful of their roots, but also with enough perspective on their career to never take themselves too seriously – a charm that would only deepen as the years moved on. The instrumentation is wonderful – at a level that almost puts these guys in heady country/roots rock territory of groups like Dillard & Clark or Flying Burrito Brothers – but with an approach that's definitely NGDB all the way through. Titles include "Fat Boys Can Make It In Santa Monica", "Candy Man", "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", "Crazy Words Crazy Tunes", "Buy For Me The Rain", and "Rock Me Baby".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.
