Local Customs – Cavern Sound

LP (Item 866436) Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Some of the most underground sounds you could ever hope to hear – quite literally, as the music on the set was recorded in a subterranean studio based in a cavern in Missouri! We could go on making endless jokes about "hard rock" and things like that – but we'll quickly skip past the novelty of the recording to let you know that the collection is a treasure trove of rare gems from Kansas and Missouri at the time – really great little groups who have a lot more to offer than the usual garage combos or c-grade psych outfits – as plenty of these guys are more than tight and tuneful enough to have hit the charts at the time! There's some great undercurrents of bigger styles running through the music at points – including surprising horn parts, soulful vocal inflections, and a sense of arrangement that makes for some really well-conceived music all the way through – even though the range of groups is quite varied. We're betting you don't have any of these singles at home in your collection – and the set features titles that include "She's A Part Of Me" by The Dantes, "The King Was" by Jaded, "Fraight" by William Jones, "In My Grave" by The Reactions, "One Day Girl" by Burlington Express, "Mustache In Your Face" by Pretty, "You'll Know The Words" by Larry Sands & The Sound Affair, "Think Before You Leave" by Mulligan, and "I Wish It Hadn't Ended That Way" by Tide.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Still in the shrink, including inserts.)

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.
