Virginity For All – Private Press 45s 1965 to 1969

LP (Item 969562) Modern Harmonic, Late 60s — Condition: Sealed
2LP Gatefold

Some of the weirdest underground rock material you'll ever hope to hear – self-produced, self-released material by Jerry Solomon – who's definitely one of the true outsiders of his scene! The approach here is a bit like that taken by Brute Force on his classic late 60s album – in that the structure of the songs often echo more familiar rock styles, but are usually delivered in a very offbeat way – not just via the strange lyrics, but also Jerry's wailing vocals, and instrumentation that's almost always this odd shadow of the familiar. The titles alone are pretty great – and include "Ann Landers & The PTA", "All I Ever Do Is Read Dear Abby", "They're Losing Their Virginity", "We Had Too Much Champagne", "We're Going To Talk About The Weather", "Look At The Flowers", "Psychic Vibrations", and "Come To The Love-In". 2LP set – with 30 strange singles!  © 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.

Modern Harmonic, Mid 70s. 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!

John Mayall

Turning Point
Polydor, 1969. Very Good
An album that definitely lives up to its title – as the set is definitely a turning point in the career of John Mayall, and the debut of brand new lineup that helped move his music past a the straighter sound of American blues! There's still plenty of blues at the core – and great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tommy
Decca, 1970. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steely Dan

Greatest Hits
ABC, 1970s. Very Good 2LP
We've always considered Steely Dan one of the quintessential 70s "Album Oriented Rock" bands, in that all of there albums work so well as a whole, so the idea of a greatest hits collection doesn't exactly work for us. Still, taken out of context, these songs are still gems, and listening ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dreamy sunshine pop from the great Mama Cass!
