Capture The Moment

LP (Item 639790) United Artists, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

Jay & The Americans make a surprisingly great shift here – moving into material that has a bit more of a roots rock vibe – which makes the album sound a lot deeper than most of their previous sets! The sound is maybe slightly out of time – a touch folk rock, with a vibe that would have been especially relevant in 1966 – yet it still does a lot for the group, and helps Jay find vocal territory that really fits the sound of his style. There's also one interesting bit of trivia here, too – a pre-Steely Dan Walter Becker and Donald Fagan provide arrangements on a few tracks – in a set of titles that include "Sleepy", "I'll Be Leaving Her Tomorrow", "Is There A World Without You", "Thoughts I've Taken To Bed", "No I Don't Know Her", "He Loves The Feeling", and "Learnin How To Fly".  © 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.

Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band

Let's Make Up & Be Friendly
United Artists, 1972. Very Good+
The last album from the legendary Bonzo Dog Band – issued at a time when the group were going their separate ways, hence the somewhat ironic title! The set's possibly a bit more musical than before – and almost even shows some traces of the hipper, artier side of the British scene that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Santo & Johnny

Santo & Johnny
Canadian American, Early 60s. Good+
Sublime work by the Santo & Johnny team! You probably know their monster hit "Sleepwalk" – the cornerstone of this early album, and a fantastically moody blend of electric and pedal steel guitar, with a slow spacey surf sound that captivated millions of earholes when it first ...

A garage psych classic from Question Mark & The Mysterians – the kind of once-in-a-lifetime album that still sounds pretty darn great today! The group are known, of course, for their huge hit "96 Tears" – and the rest of the album's done in a very similar mode – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Santana

Welcome
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint- 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
Columbia, 1968. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
The first Chicago album – presented here in all its jazzy brilliance! Back in the day, we used to wince when we heard these guys – but over the years, thanks to much rediscovery of the band by groove hounds, we've really come to like their work a lot. This first album especially has ... LP, Vinyl record album
