LP, Vinyl record album


Fantastic work by maestro Burt Bacharach – subtle genius, and an album that offers more to us every time we listen to it! Burt's work has been recorded by many – but few ever gave it the kind of treatment that he did – as you'll hear in this brilliant array of sweeping strings, sly syncopation, and well-placed instrumental solos! The sound is breathtaking throughout – a new level of maturity and majesty for 60s instrumental pop – and the record's an enduring classic that deserves a place in every sensitive record collection. Includes the amazing cut "Pacific Coast Highway", plus great versions of other classics, like "Wanting Things", "She's Gone Away", "Knowing When To Leave", and "This Guy's In Love With You". (Brown label pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

One of the best Hair records, and a wonderful bit of electronica perfectly in keeping with the mad talents of Mort Garson! Garson's the moogy genius behind so many classic sides of the late 60s and early 70s, and working with the great Galt MacDermot score to hair, he really goes to town – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cop Show Themes
RCA, 1976. Very Good
One of the funkiest albums ever from Henry Mancini – a brilliant reworking of hit 70s cop show themes, put together with a really jazzy groove!

Reprise, Late 60s. Very Good+
This one's got a hokey title and cover – but it's a great batch of groovy 60s grooves! The album's supposed to feature songs from old-timey radio shows of the 30s and 40s, but Jimmy Bowen re-casts the songs (with the help of Ernie Freeman) into these campy 60s tunes, almost like a Laugh-In ...

Crunch, 1974. Very Good
Spooky recording of a live rite of exorcism, with spooky church music and scary liturgical bits about the devil. There's also some acted parts in here, like some stuff by a reporter who's looking at the event, and a young girl who's possessed by the devil. LP, Vinyl record album
