Description

Offered for sale is a U.S. red vinyl pressing of The Remains, the only album by the Remains.

About this copy: This copy of The Remains is a 1978 U.S. pressing on the Spoonfed label of an album that was originally released in 1966.

The cover is VG, with moderate ring wear on the front and some wear at the lower spine.

The red vinyl disc is VG+ on side one, with a light scuff across the first four tracks.  Side two is M-.  It’s a fairly clean disc that plays well.

A nice copy of a classic LP.

Background: Released in 1966, The Remains was the only album by the band of the same name, who broke up around the time of the album’s release.

Allmusic.com gave The Remains a 4 1/2 star review:

Most 1960s garage rock obsessives collect singles rather than albums for a good reason: While plenty of snarling teenagers could come up with two decent songs at a stretch, a precious few seemed able to brainstorm a dozen tunes without reaching to the bottom of the barrel or resorting to covers of other people’s hits. But there were exceptions to this rule, among them the Sonics, the Litter, and, especially, the Remains, who never enjoyed much success on the national charts but were fabled heroes in their home town of Boston. The Remains’ 1966 album for Epic is a classic, packed with great songs from singer/guitarist Barry Tashian, bassist Vern Miller, and pianist Bill Briggs, and boasting exciting, fiery performances, and if the full firepower of their legendary live shows didn’t always come through on tape, even the album’s weakest moments made clear the Remains were tougher, smarter, and tighter than the vast majority of their competition.
