Green (Atco)

LP (Item 657852) Atco, 1969 — Condition: Very Good

A psychedelic gem recorded at Gold Star Studios at the end of the 60s – one that brings a fair bit of British influences into play with the trippier sounds of the American underground of the time! This Atlantic debut by the group shows a tremendous amount of promise – and an approach to the music that sometimes takes on loftier ambitions through its use of bit of brass and reeds amidst the core keyboards, guitar, bass, and drums of the tunes. The songs are tight and sharp, but have some nice flourishes too – almost in the later Chad & Jeremy mode, with a real "British through LA" sort of sound. Titles include "RCMPB", "Don't", "Have You Ever", "To Be", "Sunrise #7", "Sparkle", and "Just Try".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Atco, 1983. Near Mint-
An album of surprising brilliance – recorded late in the career of Yes, but one of the group's biggest hits ever! And while we've always been fans of Anderson, Squire, & Co, we're also ready to admit that the real star here is Trevor Horn – who produced the album and put the whole ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roxy Music

Siren
Atco/EG, 1975. Near Mint-
Quite possibly the biggest early moment of US fame for Roxy Music – thanks to the classic "Love Is The Drug", which kicks off the album and is easily one of the group's best-known tunes of the 70s! The album tightens things up slightly from the sound of Country Life before – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atco, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Life after Peter Gabriel – with Phil Collins doing a surprisingly great job on vocals – free from all the tripe of later years! The group are still very much in the mode of their early prog years, but balance things out with a few catchier tunes – a mode that's a bit like the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Unspoken Word

Unspoken Word
Atco, 1970. Very Good+
A very nice set of post psyche rock, folk & bluesy guitars – a rare one from Unspoken Word – from heavy rhythms, sharp guitar and powerhouse vocals, to a more fragile folk rock reared groove! The group manages for the most part to work well within the late 60s and early 70s rock ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rose Garden

Rose Garden
Atco, 1968. Very Good+
An overlooked gem from the Cali scene of the late 60s – music by a group with folksy roots, a bit of a British influence, and a warmth that sometimes gives them a bit of a Sunshine Pop vibe – but one that really hints at much deeper possibilities that should have made them huge! There's ... 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.

Jean Michel Jarre

Equinoxe
Polydor, 1978. Near Mint-
A seminal session from 70s French synth maestro Jean-Michel Jarre – his 8-part "Equinoxe" suite, a great bit of electronics that was almost France's answer to Kraftwerk at the time! Jarre's style is a bit warmer and more focused on the melody – and the range of keyboards and ... LP, Vinyl record album
