Tap Root Manuscript

LP (Item 908311) Uni, 1970 — Condition: Very Good+

(80s MCA pressing, in a non-gatefold Super Savings cover, with a cutout notch and light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A hip rock combo with a slightly funky groove, and a real late 60s Doors-esque kind of sound. John Orvis plays guitar and sings on the album – and although the record's not really that funky, there are some nice psyche drum moments. The real treat, though, is the Jim Morrison-esque poetry ...

Incense & Peppermints
Uni, Late 60s. Very Good+
Dreamy dreamy pop psych from Strawberry Alarm Clock – a great late 60s group who skirted the worlds of Sunshine Pop and more jamming garage rock!

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint-
Sure, the young Bob Dylan might look a bit hokey on the cover – but he's already out there way ahead of the pack – and starting to blow away any of the less interesting pop folkies who'd been crowding into the Greenwich Village scene of the early 60s! There's a difference here right ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blondie had a lot to live up to after Parallel Lines, but they pulled it off here – Eat To The Beat is another classic!
