$12. 98
| Buy Now
Condition: Gently Used
Label: Universal City Records

Admittedly, we have our share of Neil Diamond records in our dollar bins. Come and buy a few! This record, however, belongs nowhere near the dollar bins. In 1970 Neil Diamond incorporated World Musicians at least ten years before the likes of Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon began using them on their records. Includes the classic "Cracklin' Rose" (Give the acoustic guitar on this another listen, it's pretty magical), a cover of "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", and side two ends with the African Suite. If you are looking for the hits, look for a Diamond "Best Of" compilation, but if you are looking for a complete album, we suggest "Tap Root Manuscript".

This is an original release, we ship with a 2mil poly sleeve, the record plays fantastic, it has the original booklet, and the sleeve has just some minor natural wear. Do this.

Condition: Gently Used

This 1980 release was Split Enz fifth studio release. It is considered by most to be their breakthrough record with the hit single, "I Got You". Members of this group would go on to form Crowded House. The cover of this record is as shown. Why is this record so much money? It's the "lazer-etching" technique used on the record itself. The etchings on the record itself are the shapes on the record cover. It is said this was done to prevent counterfeit copies (Just wait til this thing called the internet gets popular with the kids!). The "lazer-etching" is what makes this record collectible. Show it off to your friends! Compare this price to online auction sites, we think this is very reasonable.
