Heaven Help The Child

LP (Item 813841) Elektra/Drag City, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+

The finale of Newbury's American Trilogy of LPs spanning '69 to '73 – timeless, atmospheric and excellent material from an acclaimed songwriter, but wholy underappreciated singer and performer. Titles include "Heaven Help The Child", "Good Morning Dear", "Why You Ben Gone So Long", "Song For Susan" and "San Francisco Mabel Joy".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In the die-cut cover, including the heavy inner sleeve. Die-cut has some tears in the two right corners.)

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.

Goodbye & Hello

Easily one of our favorite albums by Tim Buckley – and a record that really opens up with some key jazzy touches!

Warner, 1968. Near Mint-
Van Dyke Parks' masterpiece – and one of the hippest records to come out of LA in the 60s!
