Hellbender – 1975 to 1978

LP (Item 828373) HoZac, Mid 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Raw underground rock from mid 70s Ohio – which was for whatever reason (or reasons),one hell of a hotbed for caustic rock & roll – and these firebrands are more than worthy of that legacy! Mike Rep & The Quotas carry more of a torch for rugged, primoridial rock and roll than some of the more nihlistic or art damaged trailblazers from mid 70s OH, taking fuzzy, knife-sharp stabs songs like "Gloria", and in-the-red trudge on the Bo Diddley beat on "Bo Diddley Is A Quote", and even a rugged cover of Roxy Music's "Editions Of You", but it's mostly an original, distinctive blast. Lots of previously unreleased tracks on this great Hozac Archival discovery – and other tracks include "Laugh Jackal Laugh", "Cowboy Gone Straight", "Black Hole '78", "Even Higher" and more.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Bedlam
Chrysalis, 1973. Very Good
Pretty heavy duty rock from this group that featured drummer Cozy Powell. Most of the tracks aren't too great to our ears, but there's one killer break track called "Seven Long Years" – a stone jammer that begins with some great drums that break nicely into guitars. Also includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good+
Nice groovy instrumentals from one of the best little combos of the 60's. The record includes their big hit "No Matter What Shape (Your Stomach's In)", plus a number of other tracks that have a similar "TV commercial" feel – like "Chiquita Banana", "Pizza ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beau Brummels
Warner, 1975. Very Good+
A 1975 reunion from the Beau Brummels – recorded after the ill-fated solo career of vocalist Ron Elliott, but done in a way that definitely shows some of the deeper themes of those later years as well! The style's a bit more polished than the group's previous Warner albums – but not in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Submarine/Addenda, 2011. Sealed
Madly energetic, unpredictable material from Chicago's ever-evolving Eternals – tripped up, fearlessly creative and flat out fun stuff from one of our city's best longstanding indie concerns! The Eternals bring myriad influences into their own unique vibe, and like the best far-reaching ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reprise, 1970. Very Good
Although Jimmy Webb is best known to the world for the pop hits he gave LA when he was a wee wee lad ("MacArthur Park", "Up Up & Away", etc), he also has a lesser-known recording history, the better part of which is represented by his early recordings for Reprise. This ... LP, Vinyl record album

Surprisingly sublime pop from The Partridge Family – served up with superb arrangements from Wes Farrell and Mike Melvoin, the latter of whom plays some really great keyboards on the set!

Ricochet
Liberty, Late 60s. Very Good
More of the Nitty Gritty's nutty country rock pop groovy stuff from the late 60's. Shouldn't work, but it does, and in a nice way. Titles include "Happy Fat Annie", "Truly Right", "Search The Sky", and "Shadow Dream Song". LP, Vinyl record album
