Rose Garden

LP (Item 703020) Atco, 1968 — Condition: Near Mint-

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 a mix of girl and guy vocals on a number of tracks, but often handled with a moody vibe that's really unique – not one soaring out and the other going deep, and instead often tied together in this way that has a wonderfully blue-tinged vibe – bringing a bit of sadness even where you might not expect. There's also a bit of a late 60s Byrds sound to the music – that moment right before the group was working with Gram Parsons – and the set features two songs that were given by Gene Clark to the band to record. Titles include "Coins Of Fun", "Next Plane To London", "Long Time", "Look What You've Done", "Till Today", "She Belongs To Me", "Rider", and "February Sunshine".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Pink & tan label pressing.)

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.

Warner, 1968. Near Mint-
Van Dyke Parks' masterpiece – and one of the hippest records to come out of LA in the 60s!
