Our Price: $149.99

  • A killer copy and the first to hit the site in three years - Double Plus (A++) or better on both sides
  • This is an outstanding recording. And why shouldn't it be? It's engineered by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin II and many more)
  • "The original group's debut album was a then-groundbreaking meld of progressive rock with classical and jazz influences... [it's] far druggier than the later group in its ambience (cofounders Keith Relf and Jim McCarty were the heavily psychedelic half of the final lineup of the Yardbirds, which made them anathema to Jimmy Page), but vocalist Jane Relf had a striking individual style, and the classical influence was unique for its time."

The sound was bright and sweet, as opposed to low-end raunch. If Prince had streamlined and rocked up his approach for global domination, now he was creating something more intimate, cerebral, and challenging... a brave and deeply personal project, exploring sounds and ideas that were almost shocking coming from a pop icon at his peak."

The Beach Boys
In Concert

  (Item #: beachincon_1902) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Wonderful Double Plus (A++) sound on all four sides or close to it - this copy rarely hits the site, and it's a good one!
  • Exceptionally quiet vinyl on three sides - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - the other side plays Mint Minus Minus
  • "Beach Boys in Concert was the final live album to be issued -- excluding archival vault releases -- capturing the seminal American combo as a viable, hard-working rock & roll band with timeless material instead of the parody that Mike Love so perfectly embodied during their final years. This is the way the Beach Boys deserve to be remembered."
