Walk Away Renee/Pretty Ballerina

LP (Item 81734) Smash, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good-

Incredible work by one of our favorite 60s groups! If you don't know The Left Banke, their unique style of "baroque rock" is a wonderful mix of groovy organ, electric harpsichord, and swirling strings – all set as instrumentation for some of the tightest, grooviest little songs you'll ever hear. Nearly every track on here is a toe-tapping hummer, and even if you know their big hits like "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina", you'll still find lots of other goodies like "Barterers & Their Wives", "Evening Gown", "Lazy Day", and "What Do You Know".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono red label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Greatest Live Show On Earth
Smash, 1964. Very Good+
A great early live album from the Smash Records years of Jerry Lee Lewis – and a set that really shows the new fire that was burning for the singer as he moved away from Sun Records!

Smash, 1966. Very Good+
Jerry Lee Lewis picked up a bit of facial hair by the time of this 1966 live album, and he also picked up a great little backing band too – the super-tight Memphis Beats, who really manage to keep time with the boundless energy of their leader!

B-52s

B-52s
Warner, 1979. Very Good-
A hell of a debut from The B-52s – and a record that's become surprisingly timeless over the years, despite a retro-styled approach by the group! These guys aren't the silly group of later years here – and instead, they've got this moody darkness that's wonderful – a re-envisioned ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beach Boys

Holland
Brother/Warner, 1972. Very Good+
A great early 70s entry from The Beach Boys – and a record that's nicely balanced between mature pop tunes and more experimental moments! The set kicks off with the sublime "Sail On Sailor" – a tightly compressed, wonderfully catchy number that's easily one of the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roxy Music

Manifesto
Atco, 1979. Very Good-
A brilliant little comeback album for Roxy Music – their first album in 4 years after Siren, and a well-done departure that takes off from older records without losing any of their greatness! In a way, the set's almost the group's Lodger – a similar effort to Bowie's record from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Charisma, 1972. Very Good-
A legendary album of instrumental music inspired by the Lord Of The Rings – maybe not the all-out Frodo Fest you might expect, but a set that's been pretty important to fans of JRR Tokien over the years – especially in the years before DVDs and other mass-market versions of his ...
