Can't Break The Habit

LP (Item 927774) Hit-Ton Schalllatten (Germany), Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

A great group with a really heavy crossover soul sound! Don't confuse these guys with the American group of the same name from the period, because this ensemble's a British act coming out of the mod scene – heavily steeped in influences from the American scenes in Memphis and Detroit, but also working with some nice trippy rock elements on guitar and keyboards. The lead vocals are surprisingly soulful, and a few of the tracks have some nice funky undercurrents – especially on the group's cover of "What Is Soul", which shares the same break as the original!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has some writing in pen on back and a center split in the top seam.)

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.

The Ventures were furiously productive in the early 60s – delivering gem after gem – and this is among the best! Telstar is somewhere near the ninth record by the group, offering a dizzying mix of covers of some of the most popular songs of the day. The guitar still leads as the main ... LP, Vinyl record album

Santana (1969)
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint-
A crossover Latin Funk classic – with the kind of soaring guitar/organ grooves that were the brilliant sound of the 70s for the West Coast scene, a whole new way of playing Latin Soul that blew away the New York sound of the late 70s. Titles include "Persuasion", "Evil ... LP, Vinyl record album

Katy Lied
ABC, 1975. Very Good
Steely Dan really hitting the heights – moving into hipper, more sophisticated territory than before – pushing the envelope with both their music and lyrics, which are completely sublime!

Tim Buckley

Tim Buckley
Elektra, 1969. Sealed
An exceptional early release from the tragic Tim Buckley – done with a really unique sound that mixes late 60s folk rock with some subtly jazzy overtones! The record features beautiful string arrangements from the legendary Jack Nitzsche, and some beautiful work on piano, harpsichord, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1965. Near Mint-
A repackaged version of the album Summer Days & Summer Nights – one of those stupid Capitol reissues that somehow contains less tracks than the original album!

One of the best Brit psychedelic rock albums of the late 60s – one that sounds incredible to this day!

Hustle To Survive
Atlantic, 1975. Sealed
Sweet funky soul from Les McCann – one of the best of his 70s albums that bring in a lot of vocals with the keyboards – and served up in some tight tunes that really pack a nice sort of punch! The album doesn't have the long jammers of some of McCann's other records from the time ... LP, Vinyl record album

Out Of Different Bags

Marlena Shaw's first-ever album – and while not as all-out righteous as some of her later work, still a really unique record that quickly put Marlena head and shoulders above the rest of the pack!
