LP (Item 774273) Decca, 1967 — Condition: Near Mint-
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!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
