Black & White

LP (Item 638385) Monument, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

Damn soulful work from Tony Joe White – exactly the kind of set that shows why he was so great at skirting both the borders of rock and soul music at the end of the 60s! There's a really fresh, new groove going on here – a vibe that shows an artist who's spent a decade drawing in all the best elements of Memphis and Muscle Shoals, with a slight touch of Nashville country at times too (no surprise, given the Monuments Records release of the set) – but also a more biting singer/songwriter ethos that really pushes the whole thing out to a much bigger rockish vibe! Drums are amazing – played by Jerry Carrigan with an especially funky quality on side one – and the tunes are a mix of great originals by White – many of which would be covered by others in years to come – plus some well-chosen covers, too. Tracks include "Soul Francisco", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", "Polk Salad Annie", "Aspen Colorado", "Who's Makin Love", and "Scratch My Back".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

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.

Monument, 1971. Very Good+
Incredible sounds from Tony Joe White – one of the few cats who could really fuse together rock, funk, and soul – and make the whole thing come out as one really rich new sound!

Warner, 1979. Very Good+
A hell of a debut from The B-52s – and a record that's become surprisingly timeless over the years, despite a retro-styled approach by the group! These guys aren't the silly group of later years here – and instead, they've got this moody darkness that's wonderful – a re-envisioned ... LP, Vinyl record album

Loudon Wainwright

Attempted Mustache
Columbia, 1973. Very Good
One of the best ever albums from Loudon Wainwright III – an excellent example of his eccentric, clever, but never too cute songwrighting with eccentric and unpredictable arrangements to boot – from rural and rustic banjo & fiddle backed tunes, to piano led backing, to just voice ...

London, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
British blues meets LA's Laurel Canyon – a trans-Atlantic (or is it Pacific?) blend that makes for one of John Mayall's most compelling albums of the 60s! The album was recorded after the breakup of the Blues Breakers group – but it still features strong support from Mick Taylor on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bearsville, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautifully personal statement from the young Todd Rundgren – a set of focused, well-written tunes that point towards his pop genius to come, but also expose a few of his more ambitious modes as well. As always with Rundgren, the best tunes on the set are the mellower, quieter ones – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol/Harvest, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An early 70s collection of previous work from Pink Floyd – and a crucial display of the younger group's charm to folks who'd only discovered them in the longform jamming years! The set's got some great vocal gems from the Syd Barrett years, plus the kind of fantastic guitar work that the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Diary Of A Band Vol 1
London, 1967. Near Mint-
A definite diary of this unique British combo of the 60s – and a set that's arguably one of the band's bluesiest to date! The set features live recordings from 1967 – most very long and stretched-out, with a feel that's arguably even more rootsy than any American blues of the time ... LP, Vinyl record album

The one and only album released by this great Chicago vocal group – a sublime harmony outfit who'd recorded some excellent indie 45s before getting the chance to do this one-off set for Curtis Mayfield's Gemigo label!
