Kiss You Kidnapped Charabanc

LP (Item 819190) Creation, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-

Some of the moodiest music that Nikki Sudden recorded in the 80s – and that's saying a lot, given his other albums! The record's a duet with Roland S Howard – of Birthday Party and Lydia Lunch collaborative fame – and Howard has Nikki really moving into noisier territory – both with the guitar parts used on the tunes, and in the overall presentation of the lyrics and ideas of the tunes! There's no other band on the set, which gives the music a looser, less-structured feel than some of Sudden's other records – really letting the vocal and instrumental concepts ruminate in a space that's all their own – with completely sublime results. Titles include "Feather Beds", "A Quick Thing", "Crossroads", "Don't Explain", "Better Blood", and "Rebel Grave".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing on Relativity. Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

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.

Katy Lied
ABC, 1975. Very Good
Steely Dan really hitting the heights – moving into hipper, more sophisticated territory than before – pushing the envelope with both their music and lyrics, which are completely sublime!

Hall & Oates

H2O
RCA, 1982. Near Mint-
One that we heard way too much when it was out, but which we kind of love now! The album's part of H&O's great comeback years in the early 80s – a time when they were mixing their white boy soul with some nice 80s groove and electro touches, often going for a spare mix of groove and ...

Velvet Underground

Velvet Underground & Nico
Verve, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
Delicate dissonance, bruised beauty, and hazy noise pop – all in one of the best rock albums ever made – the amazing first album from the Velvet Underground and Nico! The album's the stuff of legend – and for good reason, too – a surprising slab of vinyl that barely set the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1973. Near Mint-
A major extension of the concept albums first begun by The Kinks with Village Green and Arthur – taken fully to the next level, and conceived as a theatrical work with a strong message-oriented base of songs! The vibe here is kind of an exaggeration of the "preservation" feeling of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rolling Stones

Some Girls
Rolling Stones, 1978. Near Mint-
Way more than the disco cash-in some folks thought at the time – and a surprisingly classic set that perfectly sums up the late 70s Stones ethos – and, in a way, the vibe of a changing New York! Titles include "Miss You", "Beast Of Burden", "Shattered", ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Bowie

Diamond Dogs
RCA, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
David Bowie at his most sinister for the 70s – a landmark set that combines the harder rocking sound of the Ziggy Stardust years with the more sophisticated theatrics of Aladdin Sane – in a style that features some of the darkest, most political work of Bowie's career! There's a depth ... LP, Vinyl record album

Who

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! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park ... LP, Vinyl record album

The classic – with "Strange Brew", "Sunshine Of Your Love", "Tales Of Brave Ulysses", and "Take It Back". LP, Vinyl record album

Al Stewart

Love Chronicles
Epic, 1969. Very Good+
Really amazing early work from Al Stewart – light years away from his bigger 70s AM radio fame, and instead a very sensitive singer and songwriter, with a unique vocal approach as well! Jimmy Page plays guitar on the set – which also features bass from Ashley Hutchings – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mothers Of Invention (Frank Zappa)

Freak Out
Verve, 1966. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A fabulous furry freakout from Frank Zappa – the start of a legendary run in the late 60s – and a record that is still as mindblowing now as it was all those many years back! There's a deadpan quality to the vocals that's unlike anything other groups were trying for at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Magic

Welcome Back
Capitol, 1981. Near Mint-
A wonderful album – one of the group's best! The album was a "comeback" effort – but it's still got stone Philly production from Norman Harris, with a sound that's right up their with their best Atco sides from the mid 70s. In fact, the harmonies are even better than before, ... LP, Vinyl record album
