Tim Buckley

LP (Item 75019) Elektra, 1969 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


An exceptional early release from the tragic Tim Buckley – done with a really unique sound that mixes late 60s folk rock with some subtly jazzy overtones! The record features beautiful string arrangements from the legendary Jack Nitzsche, and some beautiful work on piano, harpsichord, and celeste by Van Dyke Parks! But Buckley's the main star of the set – crooning beautifully with his sad-tinged voice, on wonderful tracks that include "Wings", "Aren't You the Girl", "She Is", and "Understand Your Man". (Gold label stereo pressing. NOTE: Vinyl has a bad click on the first 2 tracks of side 2.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

A true masterpiece for The Cure – possibly their best ever!

We're not ashamed to admit we're big fans of Queen around here, and why shouldn't we be?

A record that no home should be without – and a stunning set that still carries all the raw power it did way back in 1969!

Principal Edwards Magic Theatre
Dandelion/Elektra, 1969. Very Good
A bit folksy, a bit psychedelic, and certainly trippy and theatrical enough to get the attention of even the most jaded popster in the 60s – Principal Edwards Magic Theatre were a completely unique group who had the extra benefit of strong early support from John Peel, who produced this ...

Great big Dee-troit rawk, like no other group of madmen could have ever created!
