Offered for sale is a Japanese reissue of 10cc’s 1974 second album, the minor classic, Sheet Music, complete with lyric insert and obi.
After years of working as session musicians, Graham Gouldman, Kevin Godley, Eric Stewart, and Lol Creme finally recorded together as a foursome and their first two LPs, 1974?s 10cc, and it’s follow-up, Sheet Music, were albums of well-crafted pop rock that should have been major hits. The critics certainly liked them, but the public didn’t pay much attention. That’s a pity, as their first two albums are simply terrific.
AllMusic.com gave Sheet Music 4 1/2 stars and said this about it:
10cc’s second album was the next phase in what guitarist Eric Stewart called the band’s “masterplan to control the universe.” Three hit singles spun off the record, and most of the other tracks could have followed suit; it says much for Sheet Music’s staying power that, no matter how many times the album is reissued, it has never lost its power to delight, excite, and set alight a lousy day.
You can listen to a track from the album, Clockwork Creep, here:
About this copy: The copy offered for sale is a Japanese reissue, with the ¥1500 price on the obi. The record is in M- condition, with just a spindle mark or two on the label. The cover is M-, with just a tiny little dent in one corner. The obi and lyric insert are both in M- condition.
A great sounding copy of a terrific album.
