Buddy Holly Showcase

LP (Item 719430) Coral, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Mono pressing, still in the shrink with vintage sale sticker. Cover has some staple holes in one 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.

Roxy Music

Country Life
EG, 1974. Near Mint-
The fourth album from Roxy Music – and quite possibly the best to date! The album has the group moving strongly past the Eno years, into a tighter framework that still contains many of the darker themes of earlier records. Ferry's lead vocals are incredibly majestic – rising to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Terry Reid

Seed Of Memory
ABC, 1976. Near Mint-
A bit later than Terry Reid's real classics, but also a surprisingly nice little record – even if the sound is different! Graham Nash produced, and the record has a style that mixes raspy vocals and acoustic guitar with some sweeter, smoother touches – almost an LA fantasy of country ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1964. Very Good+
Some of the darkest acoustic work that Dylan ever recorded – and filled with beautiful songs like "With God On Our Side", "North Country Blues", "Only A Pawn In Their Game", "The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll", "Boots Of Spanish Leather", ... LP, Vinyl record album

801 (Phil Manzanera/Brian Eno)

801 Live
Polydor, 1976. Near Mint-
A brilliant post-Roxy Music project – odd rhythms from Phil Manzanera, Fender Rhodes from Francis Monkman, and some great electronics, tapes, and vocals from Brian Eno! Includes versions of "Third Uncle", "Miss Shapiro", "Baby's On Fire", and "Sombre ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kate Bush

Never For Ever
EMI, 1980. Very Good Gatefold
Heavenly sounds from Kate Bush – a record that has her continuing to refine her style, and find a place for her music that's completely without reference to any other scene! There's definitely a few catchy numbers in the mix, but Kate's so confident, she hardly needs to try for commercial ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin Jones & Richard Davis

Heavy Sounds
Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
Heavy Sounds, indeed – a beautiful little set of dark-edged soul jazz from the mid 60s – co-led by bassist Richard Davis and drummer Elvin Jones! The sound here is a bit different than any work ever released by either player as a leader – and is almost more in the vein of Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Tomorrow Is the Question!
Contemporary, 1959. Sealed
Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Magnolias
Polydor, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Classic New Orleans funk featuring backing from the "New Orleans Project" that includes the Gaturs' Willie Tee, Earl Turbinton, and other Crescent City session stalwarts like Larry Panna and Julius Farmer. Includes lots of tracks that rocked the rare groove scene in the 80's, including ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brother To Brother

Shades In Creation
Turbo, 1977. Sealed
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
