Big Oceans

LP (Item 758554) Virgin, 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Canadian pressing. Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear and a cutout hole.)

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.

Hysteria
Virgin/A&M, 1984. Near Mint- Gatefold
A bit later in the classic range for Human League – but still pretty darn great! By this point, Phil Oakey and crew are heading straight for the dancefloor on most numbers – hitting a bassy, slightly funky style that almost comes off like Gang Of Four around the same period – but ...

Architecture & Morality (die-cut cover)
Virgin, 1981. Very Good+
A slightly warmer sound than before from OMD – an album of well put together pop tunes that still hold true to the simple basis of their roots! At this point, the group's really got their sound down wonderfully – and they've also learned how to write slightly better pop hooks than ... LP, Vinyl record album

How Men Are
Arista/Virgin, 1984. Near Mint-
The last moment of greatness from Heaven 17 – and a set that continues the trend towards more soulful expression the group began with their previous record! This time around, the production is warmly touched with many soul-based elements that nicely offset the colder electro pop of their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luxury Gap
BEF/Virgin (UK), 1983. Very Good
Heaven 17 soften up their politics a bit with this second album (yet still address class inequality issues with the title!) – but they also manage to replace their Marxist agenda with some groovier, more soul-based tunes – just the kind of material that helped push them out of import ...

Very cool original pressing of this rare LP cut by studio legend Hal Blaine.

Double LP reissue of these two post-Pet Sounds albums – Wild Honey, the stripped down, back-to-basics record that they put out after the failure of Smile; and 20/20, a weird mix of stuff, but a record that also contains some of the lost tracks from Smile. Loads of great tracks, including ... LP, Vinyl record album
