Live In London (aka Beach Boys 69) (Dutch pressing)

LP (Item 947948) Capitol (Netherlands), 1969 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

The Beach Boys live in London at the end of the 60s – working here without Brian Wilson in tow – as indicated by a postcard addressed to him back home, displayed prominently on the front cover! Despite Brian's absence, the group's still in fine form – harmonically tight, and returning to a number of earlier themes in their songs – singing in front of what must clearly be a hugely enthusiastic crowd, if we're to judge by the applause. The concert was something of a reminder to the group that they had plenty to offer, even through Brian's ups and downs – and in a way, it really set the stage for the reputation and touring the group would do strongly in the 70s. Titles include "Bluebirds Over The Mountain", "God Only Knows", "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring", "Aren't You Glad", "Do It Again", "Wake The World", "Darlin", and "Wouldn't It Be Nice".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Really cool Dutch pressing – with a half-gatefold cover that looks a lot cooler than the US version!)

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.
