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 partially peeled promo sticker and some wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

They may look goofy on the cover, but the young B-52s are incredible here – working with this spare sense of power that almost makes us think that we didn't need most of what happened in rock and roll during the 70s – given the way these guys can distill a mood or moment down to just a ...

Rolling Stones, 1983. Near Mint-
A bit of an odd album, but one that showed the Stones were alive and kicking in the 80s. Taking off from the Stones' take on disco from their previous couple of LPs but keeping a nice rough edge on the proceedings, Jagger and Richards turned in what's probably their last great studio LP. 10 ...
