(C45s)Love Is The Drug by Roxy Music

Label: Atco 7042 Year: 1975
Factory sleeve included
Condition: M- $15.00
Love Is The DrugFinally back in the store... And in the nicest shape I've yet seen! Here's a beautiful copy of the special promo for Roxy Music's greatest U.S. hit and one of their very best tracks, which was a #2 hit in their native U.K. The promo has the "long" version (3:58, which appeared on the store stock copies) on one side and a "short version" (3:00) on the other, both in stereo. Of course, it seems like sacrilege to try to cut a full minute off this little pop masterpiece, but I guess four minutes still seemed long back in 1975. The short version basically edits off the last minute, which tragically means the song fades out rather than coming to its perfect, dramatic close, with lead singer Bryan Ferry pushing his distinctive young pipes to the max. Not to be missed! Note: This copy comes in a vintage Atco Records factory sleeve. The labels grade Near Mint overall, reflecting a small "1976" inked on the "short version" side and barely a hint of wear on the "long" side (see scan). The vinyl grades Near Mint, with a minimum of storage wear. I'm grading the audio Mint, because it's so clean and undistorted, and overall so very close to perfect, with only a faint bit of native vinyl surface noise audible in the first few bars that's not enough to lower the grade to Near Mint. (As explained in our grading standards, "Mint" in audio doesn't mean "perfect", though it better be pretty close at a minimum.)
