Gospel According To Meninblack

LP (Item 814139) Liberty (UK), 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-

(US non-gatefold pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)

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.

Electric Cafe
Warner, 1986. Near Mint- Gatefold
A much later but no less great effort from the originators of the electro sound. All the hallmarks are still intact: synth drums, beeping and chirping synths, vocoded vocals, and cold string patches. Six tracks: "Boing Boom Tschak", "Techno Pop", "Musique Non Stop", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Thumb, 1973. Sealed
Later work by Tom Rapp – recorded after his early years with Pearls Before Swine, when Rapp was working on his own as a singer/songwriter, and really expanding his own unique musical vision.

Elektra, 1968. Near Mint-
Amazingly spooky stuff from Nico! The album's only Nico's second solo album – after the legendary Chelsea Girls for Verve – but it's got a spark, stark, totally-drained quality that's immediately gripping. John Cale handled production, and he's working here with Nico in a junkie haze ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sire, 1983. Near Mint-
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove!
