Heathen Earth – The Live Sound Of Throbbing Gristle

LP (Item 733801) Industrial (UK), 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

A "live in studio" set from Throbbing Gristle – one that seeks to be a refinement of their famous style of concert performance – set up during better recording conditions, which really shows in the music produced! There's a very dark edge to the whole thing here – the noise and fuzz of the early years, mixed with some of the leaner electronics of the previous record – all filtered together wonderfully in some post-production modes, which really brings out the instrumentation beautifully! It's clear that at this point, TG are no sonic accident – that they've realized a power that few others could touch – and which would have been almost earth-moving, had they managed to hold the group together well into the 80s. Yet despite the imminent breakup, Heathen Earth stands as one of the most striking albums ever from the quartet – true genius forged out of analogue electronics, guitars, cornet, processed vocals, and other weird sounds!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black vinyl remaster.)

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.

Capitol, 1972. Very Good
The sweet second album from the Raspberries! The Rasperries were all about the songcraft, bringing sort of an unpretentious, midwestern charm into original tunes that build from the sophisticated pop of the breezy LA scene – much more so than on the Brit Invasion-learned debut album.

Essential old school Elvis Costello from the peak years of the Attractions era!

Tracks include "Clubland", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jethro Tull

Benefit
Chrysalis, 1970. Very Good
An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too!

The group were certainly doing something right – as this album has Joe Cuba's sextet at the top of their game, easily showing why they were one of the best groups on the New York scene of the 60s!
