No New York

LP (Item 692536) Antilles, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

A key document of some of the most adventurous work on the New York scene at the end of the 70s – and a landmark compilation put together by Brian Eno! Eno clearly had his ears to the ground at the time, and somehow managed to convince Island Records to release this seminal package of work by 4 important groups in the art/punk years – Contortions, Teenage Jesus & The Jerks, Mars, and DNA – all represented here by recordings that are not only some of their best work ever, but which, thanks to the compilation, have gone onto become some of the ultimate no wave classics. Titles include "Dish It Out", "Flip Your Face", and "I Can't Stand Myself" by The Contortions; "Burning Rubber", "The Closet", "I Woke Up Dreaming", and "Red Alert" by Teenage Jesus & The Jerks; "Helen Fordsdale", "Puerto Rican Ghost", and "Hairwaves" by Mars; and "Egomaniac's Kiss", "Not Moving", "Lionel", and "Size" by DNA.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has an unglued top seam. Inner sleeve has a bent corner and split seam.)

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.
