Slippin' Away

LP (Item 758041) Asylum, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

The first solo album by Chris Hillman – material recorded after the man had spent many years on the west coast scene – first as a bluegrass musician, then as a key part of The Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, and Stephen Stills' Manassas! Hillman's quite strong in the spotlight here – working as a warm-voiced singer who can easily craft his previous roots into tighter mid 70s music – but all without losing the personality that made him so great in the first place. The album's got a touch of modern AOR production in the mix, but also hints of Nashville 70s too – and tunes include lots of originals by Hillman – "Step On Out", "Take It On The Run", "Falling Again", "Slippin Away", "Midnight Again", and "Lifeboat" – plus a remake of "Down In The Churchyard", which he co-wrote with Gram Parsons.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes insert. Cover has a cutout notch and light wear.)

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.
