Offered for sale is an original U.S. pressing of High Time, the third album by the MC5.
About this copy: This copy of High Time is a 1971 U.S. pressing on the Atlantic label.
The cover is VG with slight general wear, particularly at the edges and corners. There is a small saw mark at the mouth of the cover.
The disc is VG++ and close to M- with a couple of faint sleeve scuffs. It’s a clean disc that has had little play.
A nice copy of a classic LP.
Background: Released in 1971, High Time was the third and final album by the MC5.
The album reached #191 on the U.S. album charts.
MC5 were nearing the end of their long and bumpy trail when they cut High Time in 1971, and it was widely ignored upon initial release. While it lacks the flame-thrower energy and “off the man!” politics of Kick Out the Jams or the frantic pace and “AM Radio of the People” sound of Back in the USA, High Time sounds like MC5’s relative equivalent to the Velvet Underground’s Loaded, their last and most accessible album, but still highly idiosyncratic and full of well-written, solidly played tunes.
