Son Of America

LP (Item 969396) A&M, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

An overlooked A&M gem – produced by Graham Nash, with work from A&M talents like Booker T Jones on organ, Sneaky Pete on steel guitar, and Nick DeCaro on accordion – on a set of offbeat tracks that really live up to the spirit of the rest!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Cover has some light aging near the top.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

A heck of a great record – and we don't mind saying it!

Ralph, 1979. Very Good+
Seminal sounds from The Residents – a record that's purportedly inspired by the ceremonial music of the Eskimo – but it's very a much a Residents album, and one that follows their own absurdist adventuresome impulses! There's often this cold, drifting wave of sound in the background ... LP, Vinyl record album
