Illinois Speed Press

LP (Item 698624) Columbia, 1969 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
The debut album from this Chicago group – maybe not the biggest act of their day, but one who've got more than enough chops to warrant the release of this excellent album on Columbia! Illinois Speed Press are a guitar-heavy combo who are definitely part of the growing hard rock scene in the US, but their vibe here is nicely different than some of the San Francisco or New York sounds of the period – maybe in part because James William Guerico gave them some wonderful handling in the studio – but, we think, also because their Chicago location made them nicely out there on their own a bit. Titles include "PNS", "Be A Woman", "Get In The Wind", "Here Today", "Pay The Price", "Free Ride", and "Sky Song".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has light wear and a cut corner.)

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.

A killer album from Soft Machine – one that's maybe a bit tighter and more rock oriented at times than the jazz workouts of their previous numbered albums – although still all instrumental, and with the kind of top-shelf instrumentation that we've always loved from the group!
