Cake

LP (Item 774273) Decca, 1967 — Condition: Very Good
Wonderfully tripped-out girl group work from the end of the 60s – almost a psyche-era take on the sound of female pop trios from a few years before! Cake definitely have their roots in a Brill Building, Phil Spector-influenced world – but their overall presentation here is much more open to hipper influences and late 60s modes – styles that take an otherwise straighter girl pop sound, and mix it up with odd production, unusual lyrics, and some wonderfully complex instrumentation – all of which almost makes the group sound like some sort of feminist commentary on girl group music!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light ring & edge wear, tiny drill hole.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Decca, Late 60s. Near Mint-
An incredible album – and one of the most revolutionary rock albums of the late 60s!

A landmark live set from The Who – a record that offers the group with a blistering intensity that blows away all their other studio albums of the time!

Who

Tommy
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca/MCA, 1965/1968. Very Good+ 2LP
A Who double-header! On Magic Bus, The Who may look like they're tripping things out a bit – clearly a nod to the Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles – but the groove here is tight, right, and pretty darn mod all the way through – very much in the spirit of the group's earlier ...

Todd Rundgren

Runt
Ampex, 1970. Sealed
Todd Rundgren in all of his great early glory – a record that's filled with simple, honest pop tunes – and one that also takes on a few experimental touches as well – but only in ways that further the earnest charm at its heart! There's a really upfront, unpretentious feel to the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rascals

Peaceful World
Columbia, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Nothing too peaceful here – at least not in a sleepy sort of way – as The Rascals are really hitting on all burners, and starting to mix a bit of funk in with their groove! The record's a great extension of the group's last work on Atlantic – and it takes that already-righteous ... LP, Vinyl record album
