Black Sea

LP (Item 643946) Virgin, 1980 — Condition: Very Good+

(RSO pressing, including the green outer sleeve and printed inner sleeve! Outer sleeve is a bit wavy, with a few discolored spots.)

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.

Hysteria
Virgin/A&M, 1984. Near Mint- Gatefold
A bit later in the classic range for Human League – but still pretty darn great! By this point, Phil Oakey and crew are heading straight for the dancefloor on most numbers – hitting a bassy, slightly funky style that almost comes off like Gang Of Four around the same period – but ...

Architecture & Morality (die-cut cover)
Virgin, 1981. Very Good+
A slightly warmer sound than before from OMD – an album of well put together pop tunes that still hold true to the simple basis of their roots! At this point, the group's really got their sound down wonderfully – and they've also learned how to write slightly better pop hooks than ... LP, Vinyl record album

How Men Are
Arista/Virgin, 1984. Near Mint-
The last moment of greatness from Heaven 17 – and a set that continues the trend towards more soulful expression the group began with their previous record! This time around, the production is warmly touched with many soul-based elements that nicely offset the colder electro pop of their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luxury Gap
BEF/Virgin (UK), 1983. Very Good
Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import ...

Van Dyke Parks

Song Cycle
Warner, 1968. Very Good
Van Dyke Parks' masterpiece – and one of the hippest records to come out of LA in the 60s! The album's a strangely anachronistic one – steeped in the kind of past-days scoring found on early records by Harpers Bizarre and Randy Newman (both of which Parks had a hand in!), wrapped ...

Three Dog Night
ABC/Dunhill, 1969. Very Good+
The first album by Three Dog Night – cut back when they were a hip LA combo getting a lot of help and inspiration from The Beach Boys! The set's got a bit of a harder rocking sound than you might expect from some of their later hits – heavy drums and lots of guitars, mixed in with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
