Along Ago – 1981 to 1989

LP (Item 969907) Captured Tracks, 1980s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Lavender vinyl pressing, still in the shrink and includes the booklet.)

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.

Imagine
Apple, 1971. Very Good-
Not the out there primal scream of Plastic Ono, and more of an impeccably produced, easy to love landmark from John Lennon!

River
Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ 2LP
Prime classic Springsteen double album, circa 1980!

Definitely a creative high ... LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing stuff! This is one of the now out-of-print series by Arch that compiled all of Conlon Nancarrow's fantastic music for player piano.
