Licensed To Ill

LP (Item 8240) Def Jam, 1986 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold
Also available
Beastie Boys — Licensed To Ill (180 gram pressing) ... LP 22.99

The game changing Def Jam classic! Profane party anthems galore, and the Beasties would distance themselves from much of the attitude of this album, making their career arc from stoopid (as opposed to stupid) to thoughtful and playful innovators one of the more interesting artistic evolutions of their generation for sure. With all the killer cuts: "Rhymin & Stealin", "The New Style", "Girls", "Fight For Your Right To Party", "No Sleep Til Brooklyn", "Paul Revere", "Hold It Now Hit It", "She's Crafty", and more. (UK pressing, including the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a hype sticker and clear tape on the spine.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Mirage
Vinyl Digital, 2017. Near Mint-
Largely instrumental craft from Cologne producer Flitz & Suppe! Mirage works well on dual fronts – setting up a laidback, often breezy jazz flavored atmosphere of dreamy keys, piano smoothed out sax and more – but it's got a very compelling beathead and aesthetic, too, with sampled ...
