One Man's Journey – 1972 to 1979

LP (Item 969529) Modern Harmonic, Mid 70s — Condition: Sealed

Alan Munson might look like some sort of tough biker on the cover, but the music within is surprisingly sensitive – really well-penned singer/songwriter material, done with a style that's personal, and also quite unique! There's a vibe here that almost reminds us more of an artist of this nature from the UK scene in the early or mid 80s – a slight sense of distance from his topics at times, but also this almost world-weary sensibility – not in a way that makes you feel like Munson doesn't care, but maybe that he's found a way to hide himself slightly, maybe to ease some of the pain of his lyrics. Titles include "In The Rain", "I Need A Change", "Fences", "A Visit From A Friend", "Sail Away Forever", "Late Night Morning Coffee", and "For A Long Time".  © 1996-2021, 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.
