In From The Cold

LP (Item 775923) Decca (UK), 1969 — Condition: Very Good

Take these guys out of the Ashkan, because they can really rock their arses off! Ashkan have a heady, bass-y groove that rocks out with the power of early Deep Purple at their best – stretching out over longish tunes that have a freewheeling quality that's clearly driven by its own demons, and which falls together beautifully on this album – making an instant sort of sense, and coming across with an energy that should have made this one a classic. Guitarist Bob Weston has some incredibly dark tones on the record, matched nicely by bluesy vocals of Steve Bailey – and propelled to the depths by some massive bass by Ron Bending. Titles include "Practically Never Happens", "Stop", "Going Home", "Take These Chains", and "Darkness".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing on Sire/London. Cover has a promo sticker, ring & edge wear, small name in marker, and some splitting in the top seam and spine.)

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.

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!

Decca, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
A classic greatest hits package from The Who – one that had almost as much life as any of their major full length albums, and a set that served to re-introduce new audiences to the group after the success of Tommy and Who's Next! Most of the tracks here predate those albums – pulled ... LP, Vinyl record album

Twinn Connexion
Decca, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Groovy sunshine pop – and a really fantastic album! These guys have a weird look, a silly name, and a sound that's pretty darn great – a mix of New York and West Coast late 60s pop styles – a bit trippy, a bit hippy, and with some nice psyche pop touches! The album features some ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Bowie

Scary Monsters
RCA, 1980. Sealed
David Bowie back in costume at the end of the 70s – but informed enough from his Berlin trilogy that he's coming at things quite differently here! The album's a great summation of the sounds on Low, Heroes, and Lodger – taken almost back to some Ziggy Stardust and Space Oddity ... LP, Vinyl record album

Smiley Smile
Brother/Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
The slimmed-down, single LP effort that Capitol issued after the collapse of the legendary Smile album – and a pretty sublime set nonetheless! Sure, some might argue that you can't enjoy Brian Wilson's genius until you've listened to 20 bootlegs of the sessions with dozens of takes on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
