RIP – The Lost Album

LP (Item 964526) Varese, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
Zombies — RIP – The Lost Album ... LP 21.99

Great late work from The Zombies – tracks that are a perfect bridge between Odessey & Oracle and the early records from Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent! The cuts here include some late singles issued as part of the Time Of The Zombies album in the US, and other Decca work from the time that never saw the light of day for years – brought together with a very unified feel that shows not only the increasing sense of majesty in Blunstone's vocals, but also some of the grittier touches that Argent was bringing to his instrumentation. Titles include early versions of "Smokey Day", "She Loves The Way They Love Her", and "If It Don't Work Out" – plus "Girl Help Me", "I'll Keep Trying", "Don't Cry For Me", "Imagine The Swan", "Walking In The Sun", and the smoking instrumental "Conversation Off Floral Street".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Recent Craft reissue, still in the shrink.)

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.

Zombies

Zombies
Parrot, 1965. Very Good+
The first US album by The Zombies – a brilliant little record that shows the group as way more than just a Brit Invasion combo! The songs are short, rocking, and nearly all very catchy – but they've got an airy quality that elevates them past simple pop, into the god-like territory ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hall & Oates

H2O
RCA, 1982. Very Good+
One that we heard way too much when it was out, but which we kind of love now! The album's part of H&O's great comeback years in the early 80s – a time when they were mixing their white boy soul with some nice 80s groove and electro touches, often going for a spare mix of groove and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Miller Band

Fly Like An Eagle
Capitol, 1976. Very Good-
A masterpiece from the legendary SF rocker Steve Miller – and a perfect summation of the years of blues, soul, funk, and rock he'd been soaking up in the Bay Area scene – served up here with an edge that's still very firmly in place! Miller was already plenty great before this set, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1968. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
The first Chicago album – presented here in all its jazzy brilliance! Back in the day, we used to wince when we heard these guys – but over the years, thanks to much rediscovery of the band by groove hounds, we've really come to like their work a lot. This first album especially has ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul McCartney & Wings

Venus & Mars
Capitol, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
Maybe the greatest moment ever from Paul McCartney & Wings – a set that features killer hits and lesser-known gems – all woven into a fantastic 70s sonic tapestry! The production and presentation of the record are wonderful – the whole thing was virtually a pop art piece when ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimi Hendrix

Rainbow Bridge
Reprise, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album

Vanilla Fudge

Vanilla Fudge
Atco, 1967. Near Mint-
One of the coolest concepts for a record in the 60s – and a set that's the first, and maybe crowning achievement of Vanilla Fudge! The set's mighty trippy – and often offers up very weird, fuzzy remakes of songs that were more mainstream hits for other artists in the 60s – tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Journey

Infinity
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+

Bruce Springsteen

River
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP
Prime classic Springsteen double album, circa 1980! The River finds Bruce a few years removed from the massive breakthrough that was Born To Run, and seemingly starting to let go of the darker tone of Darkness On The Edge Of Town, though still with some shadows of it. Definitely a creative high ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ear Wax/Wonderland, Late 70s. Sealed
An obscure little funky group from Flint, Michigan, one with a tight ensemble sound that's very much in the Earth Wind & Fire mode – complete with a really great horn section, plenty of bass-heavy grooves a the bottom, and a relatively spiritual feel that comes through strongly on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Main Ingredient

Euphrates River
RCA, 1974. Sealed Gatefold
Although the Main Ingredient were best known for their early 70's singles, this album from '74 is a wonderfully complex batch of tunes that shows that the group were taking a cue from some of their hipper contemporaries, and pushing past a stock hit formula. Bert DeCoteaux was still arranging, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

DJ Rogers

On The Road Again
RCA, 1976. Sealed
Classic work from the great DJ Rogers – with a soaring, sweeping, righteous soul feel that reminds us of Rance Allen at his best, or of some of the smooth work of Lamont Dozier from the same time. DJ wrote, arranged, and produced all the tracks on this album, and the cuts have a slight nod ... LP, Vinyl record album
