Offered for sale is a promotional copy of the rare Japan-only compilation A&M Gold Series by Captain & Tennille, complete with two obi.
About this copy: This copy of A&M Gold Series by Captain & Tennille is a promotional copy, with a promotional sticker on the back cover and promotional markings on the label.
The album includes both the regular obi that indicates title and price and a second obi, likely to indicate a then-current tour of Japan.
The cover is M-, with a couple of very minor bends on the mouth of the cover. Both obi are M-, and there are two inserts – a lyric insert and a second insert describing other titles in the A&M Gold Series.
The record is M- and looks unplayed.
A nice copy of a surprisingly rare Captain & Tennille album.
Background: A&M Gold Series was a short-lived series of compilation albums by well-known artists on the A&M label, issued in Japan in 1986. As vinyl sales at that time were largely being overshadowed by compact discs, the press runs were quite small for all of the titles in the series, which also included albums by Rita Coolidge, Sergio Mendes, Styx, Peter Frampton and Herb Alpert.
Captain & Tennille’s album in the A&M Gold series is a compilation that largely contains the songs you’d expect to see:
- Love Will Keep Us Together
- The Way I Want to Touch You
- Disney Girls
- Lonely Night (Angel Face)
- Shop Around
- Muskrat Love
- Wedding Song (There is Love)
- Can’t Stop Dancin’
- Come in From the Rain
- I’m On MY Way
- You Never Done It Like That
- You Need a Woman Tonight
