An original Japanese pressing of Cheap Trick's 1977 debut LP, complete with obi and lyric insert.
Offered for sale is a scarce original Japanese pressing of Cheap Trick’s self-titled debut LP, issued in 1977 on Epic Records.
Cheap Trick’s first two albums were relatively obscure, but the critics did notice. AllMusic.com gave Cheap Trick five stars:
Cheap Trick’s eponymous debut is an explosive fusion of Beatlesque melodic hooks, Who-styled power, and a twisted sense of humor partially borrowed from the Move. But that only begins to scratch the surface of what makes Cheap Trick a dynamic record. The combination of off-kilter humor, bizarre subjects, and blissful power pop made Cheap Trick one of the defining albums of its era, as well as one of the most influential.
The copy offered for sale is a scarce original Japanese pressing on the orange Epic label, which was discontinued shortly after the release of this album. The original lyric insert and obi are included.
The cover, disc, obi and lyric insert are M-. A great copy of a terrific record.
