It's A New Day Tonight

LP (Item 936743) Wick/Daptone, 2018 — Condition: Sealed
Gatefold

Buzzingly sunny power pop on a level that's rarely reached post-millennium! Michael Rault wouldn't only be filed so close to the Raspberries in your record collections because of the Ra-, he's a genuine torch carrier for sounds pioneered by bands of that ilk – a mix of sweetness and grit with tuneful songs, bright vocals, fuzzy guitars and rhythms. Recorded at Daptone's House Of Soul in Brooklyn, it's pretty wonderful how the old school mojo that imbues funk & soul records made there works its way onto sunny psych/power, too – but all credit to Rault's voice and songcraft! Includes "I'll Be There", "New Day Tonight", "Sleep With Me", "Oh, Clever Boy", "Sitting Still", "Dream Song", "Pyramid Scheme", "Out Of The Light", "Sleeping And Smiling" and "When The Sun Shines".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Scratch The Sky
Columbia, 1967. Very Good
A great step forward for The Cryan Shames – a group who started their career singing other peoples' music, but who emerge here with some great songs of their own!

Biff Rose

Children Of Light
Tetragrammaton, 1968. Near Mint-
Tremendous work from Biff Rose – a near-lost singer-songwriter from the late 60s, barely remembered as the author of "Fill Your Heart" from David Bowie's Hunky Dory album – but an incredible talent that we'd rank right up there with Van Dyke Parks or early Randy Newman for ...

Joy Of Cooking
Capitol, 1971. Very Good
Sweet folk rock from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – a record that's very much in keeping with some of the criss-crossing of styles going on at the time – mostly rock, but with touches of folk, a consciousness of rootsier blues, and an overall laidback and hippie-warm style! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1965. Very Good
A pivotal moment for Bob Dylan – and maybe one of THE albums of the 60s! The newly-electrified Dylan really takes off here – putting more punch and bit into his already-strong lyrical approach – and twisting things in amazing ways that still leave us breathless all these many ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linda Ronstadt

Hand Sown Home Grown
Capitol, 1969. Near Mint-
Linda's first solo record after the Stone Poneys, released in 1969, and a prime example of Linda's big, boisterous and passionate vocal style, floating over some groovy steel guitar and a more extroverted sound on the best tunes, but with some nice folkier numbers, too. It's surprising mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wonderfully trippy record from The Beatles – filled with songs that have become classics, even though the initial package was designed for a movie that was one heck of a mess!

Axis Bold As Love
Reprise, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold

Monster
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold

Motor Booty Affair
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good Gatefold
The Mothership goes under water – as George Clinton and crew groove away nicely on this water-themed set of tracks designed to raise Atlantis from the deep!
