Excursions

LP (Item 732567) Kama Sutra, 1967 — Condition: Very Good-

A rare full album from The Tradewinds – a wonderful harmony pop group with a Sunshine Pop feel! The Tradewinds have a style that's heavily in a Beach Boys mode – sunny California harmonies on the vocals, and a sort of post-Pet Sounds approach to songwriting – one that makes for some really compelling songs in the set! The group's best known for their "New York's A Lonely Town" hit, but the whole album is great – filled with inventive songs, compelling vocals, and cool arrangements from Jimmy Wisner and Artie Butler – two very groovy talents. Titles include "Mind Excursion", "Bad Misunderstanding", "Only When I'm Dreamin", "Small Town Bring Down", "To Be With You", "Little Susan's Dreamin", and "Huggin In The Hall".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow label pressing. Cover has a light stain at the bottom with some heavy wear on the seam.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Lovin Spoonful

Do You Believe In Magic
Kama Sutra, 1965. Very Good+
Here it is – the first Spoonful LP in all its sunny, groovy glory – and the sum is so much more than just a great single! Like the Byrds, the group is built on traditionally structured back-porch melodies. In the case of the Spoonful, jug band influences provide the core rhythmic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Innocence

Innocence
Kama Sutra, 1967. Very Good
The only album from The Innocence – a cool little group with a really playful pop feel – one that's definitely cut from the same cloth as other Kama Sutra groups from the Lovin Spoonful generation! The core sounds here are from the duo of Pete Anders and Vinnie Poncia – who often ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramones

Road To Ruin
Sire, 1978. Near Mint-
A prime Ramones classic from the late 70s – a set that's got Joey, Johnny, and crew really hitting right on the money – with the kind of short sharp tracks that made the group such a key bridge between the 60s and the blank generation! The energy here is phenomenal – the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Youngbloods

Ride The Wind
Warner/Raccoon, 1971. Very Good+
Beautiful work from the Youngbloods – a mixture of folk rock and jazzy phrasing, very much in the same spirit of Tim Hardin or Tim Buckley, with a depth and complexity that's quite surprising, and which has held up surprisingly well over the years – almost more appealing now than when ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hank Williams

Honky Tonkin
MGM, Early 50s. Very Good+
A great early 50s MGM album from Hank Williams – overflowing with greatness on nearly every track, and featuring a good mix of hits and lesser-known gems! The cover alone is worth the price of admission – as it features a blue/black ink image of a honky-tonkin guitarist, offset by a ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Cale

Paris 1919
Reprise, 1973. Very Good
Beautiful work from John Cale – proof that in his years after The Velvet Underground, he was one hell of a talented solo act! The songs are all wonderfully written, and supported by orchestrations that are light, but which bring some overall depth to the record – a sense of class, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rascals

See
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
Harder rocking and almost deeper soul than before – and a tremendous evolution in the music of The Rascals – light years past the pop hits of a few years before! The group co-produced the album with Arif Mardin, and the sounds here are even more sophisticated than their Once Upon A ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1973. Very Good
Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work ... LP, Vinyl record album
