Red Rubber Ball

LP (Item 645610) Columbia, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

A bouncy early gem from The Cyrkle – filled with easygoing, impeccable harmonies – and mixed with some wonderful arrangements and production from the legendary John Simon – who's really at the top of his game here, during a short but wonderful run of records for Columbia! Early on, The Cyrkle records were great for adding some oddball elements to tunes that are otherwise pleasant 60s pop rock – some woozy keyboards here, some extra fuzzy guitar there – mixed with harmonies as strong as any young group of the time, but which take on a nicely unusual quality in the setting – thanks to Simon's great guidance in the studio! Titles include "Red Rubber Ball", "Why Can't You Give Me What I Want", "Big, Little Woman", "Cloudy", "Cry", "Turn-Down Day", "Bony Moronie", "How Can I Leave Her", and "Money To Burn".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
