Animals

LP (Item 653656) MGM, 1964 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Animals — Animals (180 gram pressing) ... LP 28.99
Animals — Animals (with bonus track) ... CD 11.99

The seminal first album from The Animals – a set that came out at a time when the whole UK scene was smitten with blues and soul influences from the US – yet a record that still managed to really stand out from the pack! Part of that's because of the fantastic lead vocals from Eric Burdon – still just a kid at the time of recording, but able to work with this searing intensity that seems to put most of his contemporaries to shame – belting out lyrics with a quality that really transforms the tunes, and has them finding a way into the rock canon without sounding like shameless ripoffs at all. Titles include their classic "House Of The Rising Sun" – plus "I'm Mad Again", "Baby Let Me Take You Home", "Right Time", "Gonna Send You Back To Walker", "The Girl Can't Help It", "Blue Feeling", and "Talkin Bout You".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has a cutout hole and light wear.)

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.

AB Skhy
MGM, 1969. Very Good+
AB Skhy are one of those totally great late 60s groups who never fully got their due – overflowing with instrumental chops and bearing a really sharp sound – but never hitting the mark that they should have with this well-done debut! The group push blues influences into psych, and come ... LP, Vinyl record album

Going Public
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint-
A strange lost relic from Beach Boy Bruce Johnston – recorded in the mid 70s with some sweet AOR production work by Gary Usher. The album's actually a fantastic slice of late 60s sunny LA pop – and features work by Curt Boettcher, Chad Stuart, and a few other lost pop luminaries – ... LP, Vinyl record album

A real standout from Polly Jean Harvey – a set that somehow manages to have all the intensity of her previous records, but which hones things down to a mode that might well be called mellow at times – but which, to us, also seems to really give the music clarity, and maybe a more ...

Songs Of The Free
Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
Quite possibly our favorite Gang Of Four album – and the one in which their funk approach really seems to work! The album's got a camp appeal that can't be denied – known famously for it's big post-disco hit "I Love A Man In Uniform" – but overall the whole thing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elektra, 1983. Near Mint-
The last true masterpiece by the greatest rock band to ever come out of the late 70s and early 80s L.A. scene. More Fun In The New World serves in a lot of ways as X's upright middle finger to the early years of the Reagan era, with the anthemic opener "The New World", and the ballad ...

Fascination
Virgin/A&M, 1981/1982. Near Mint-
Some great early 80s pop groove material from Human League – less of the colder synth of before, and more of the warmer soul-based sound that worked surprisingly well for the group!
