Horse

LP (Item 71643) Liberty, 1968 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of the best late 60s albums by the Ventures – a lot more hard-wailing than usual – and done with a fair bit of influence from funk and soul music too! The title cut gives the album away nicely – as it's a cover of Cliff Nobles' classic funky 45 "The Horse", done with more guitars than the horns of the original – and with a funky edge that's a lot sharper than any of The Ventures' other work! Other tracks follow suit by borrowing lots from the harder side of 60s soul – thanks to arrangements from George Tipton and Warren Barker – both of whom sound even groover here than usual. Other sweet tracks include versions of "Licking Stick Licking Stick", "Here Comes The Judge", "Choo Choo Train", and "Grazing In The Grass" – as well as the tasty originals "Soul Breeze" and "Horse Power". Great stuff – really!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a bumped 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.
