Thoughts Of Emerlist Davjack

LP (Item 83831) Immediate, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

The Nice's debut album – a much more tripped out batch of tunes than their better remembered follow up albums! Keyboardist Keith Emerson is the leader of the group, but would actually function as a tighter three piece in the subsequent years. The album may suffer just a bit in comparison to the bands superior later albums, and the fact that Pink Floyds bizarro druggie masterpiece Piper At The Gates Of Dawn was released the same year; but it's still a must for prog and psych completists. Includes "Flower King Of The Flies", "The Thoughts Of Emerist Davejack", "Bonnie K", "Rondo", "War And Peace", and more.  © 1996-2021, 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.

Immediate, 1968. Near Mint-
The second, and possibly the most ambitious album the Brit psych-art soul unit led by Keith Emerson's showy, dense work on Hammond organ and keyboards. The group always had a theatrical approach, which really shows on the groups nuevo classical, psychological comedy song cycle! LP, Vinyl record album

Jah Wobble/The Edge/Holger Czukay

Snake Charmer EP
Island, 1983. Near Mint-
One of the best Jah Wobble projects we've ever heard – and a record with a sound that was funky enough to cross over to the clubs! The record follows in the spirit of some of Wobble's other post-PIL projects, but with a bit more focus – thanks possibly to Francois K, who produced the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Residents

Eskimo
Ralph, 1979. Very Good+
Seminal sounds from The Residents – a record that's purportedly inspired by the ceremonial music of the Eskimo – but it's very a much a Residents album, and one that follows their own absurdist adventuresome impulses! There's often this cold, drifting wave of sound in the background ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Zappa

Waka/Jawaka
Bizarre/Reprise, 1972. Sealed
Wonderful stuff from Frank Zappa – a set that still has all the freak-out feel of the early years, yet which also shows a real maturation in his arrangement styles as well! The instrumentation is fantastic – not just great guitar from Frank, but heavy keyboards from George Duke, slide ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grateful Dead

American Beauty
Warner, 1970. Very Good
One of the crowning early moments from the young Grateful Dead – a key Warner studio album that really has the group moving from psychedelic to more roots-oriented modes – maybe a Marin vibe versus a Haight sort of happening – with loads of great guitar and pedal from Jerry Garcia ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Country

Crossing
Mercury, 1983. Very Good+
Titles include "In A Big Country", "1000 Stars", "The Storm", "Lost Patrol", and "Close Action". LP, Vinyl record album

Peggy Lee

Where Did They Go
Capitol, 1971. Very Good+
Brilliant late work by Peggy Lee – following strongly on the heels of Is That All There Is, and done with a style that's even sadder, and more life-weary! The title cut – "Where Did They Go" – is simply amazing – the kind of boozy, regretful tune that never seemed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stylistics

Stylistics
Avco, 1971. Very Good+
A masterpiece of harmony soul – one of THE all-time greats of the genre, and a lasting treasure from The Stylistics! The album really took vocal soul to a whole new level for the 70s – pushing from the sometimes fragile ballad style of the late 60s into a smoother, more mature sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stax, 1972. Very Good+
Ahhh, good ol' Mel & Tim – possibly our favorite soul duo ever, and a really dynamic pair that carve some great new territory away from the path set by Sam & Dave! The album's a bit of a comeback for the duo, as you'd guess from the title – even though it was only recorded a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis & Sonny Stitt

Live in Stockholm 1960
Dragon (Sweden), 1960/1986. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Incredible stuff – and a rare meeting of two giant jazz talents you'd never thought would appear on the same stage! The album features a 1960 concert in Sweden – Miles and Sonny upfront, with backing by the trio of Wyton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. Tracks are long, fiery, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dakar, 1976. Very Good
Easy to dance your ass off with music this great – a fast, firey form of funk that's very much in the best Bohannon mode – that unique groove that was unlike anything else to hit the American scene for years to come! The record's a locomotive right from the start – a completely ... LP, Vinyl record album
