LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 9

Fantastic stuff! The Capes & Masks are actually a crack studio team led by Shorty Rogers and Irving Joseph, and on this LP they lay down some of the most dynamic, crazy instrumental work we've heard in a long time! The theme is Super Hero madness, and the music is very camp, but also very jazzy – and the album has the feel of some of the best "crime" soundtracks – but with excellent production that really isolates groovier instruments like the electric guitar and the vibes. There's a great approach to the whole thing that makes the album come off like a funky soundtrack from the time – mod late 60s grooving, produced to perfection, in the manner of Rogers incredible Dune Buggy project! Titles include "The Apollo Investigation", "The Incredible Shotzam", "The Eagle's Code", "The Man From TANTA", "Agent 00008 Or Section 8", "The Atom Smasher", and "Hey, What Th-".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Command, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
The swingin first LP from Brass Impact – a great group with lots of horns up front, and some very mod rhythms at the bottom!
