Rarely seen private press record out of California. An amazing blend of funk, rock, and soul, those in the know have found it to be Top Shelf worthy.
The track "Night Time Stars" was comped on Americana 2 Rock Your Soul.
Released in 1978, Joseph blends a modern soul feel with crispy snapping drums, and psych tinges. I encourage anyone to give it a listen. I know dealer hype can be absolute bull, so I usually let the record stand on its own merit, but considering how obscure, and rare it is, I felt a little dissertation might be helpful. If this record doesn't blow your mind, $ back guarantee! I was happy to do the digital transfer, a student has to make money somehow...

WHY TO ADD ME AS A FAVORITE SELLER:
1. Being a fairly longtime collector, I know grading/handling is paramount. I always strive to grade using rigorous standards. 99% of the time people are incredibly pleased, which brings me to...
2. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied, send me a message, all items are guaranteed to match their grading.
3. I Don't use odd grades like "Mint" (which I think is philosophically impossible from a subjective stance), or VG++ (What the heck is that anyway?). I am straight up, NM is my highest grade (Still Sealed is in a class of it's own), EX is a fantastic copy, and my VG+ is most people's VG++.
4. I usually list a curated set once per week on Sundays (7 day auctions), I always have stuff from various genre's, and it will keep on a coming. There's a good chance I'll have something you want.
5. I don't list ultra common records you can find anywhere, I list rare, interesting, scarce, ungoogable, and highly collectible LP's, 45's, and on occasion a 78 or two.
6. I'm a super nice approachable guy, if there are any issues with needing extra time to pay, different shipping, special requests, etc. I am more then happy to oblige.
7. I check my inbox at a minimum of once per day (usually more)
8. My packing game is on point, I use industry standard mailers, and records always come with a plastic sleeve. You will never have to worry about a bad packing job.
9. I ship quickly!
10. Well that's about the spiel, I am customer/people centric person, and I hope to be a positive ongoing part of your eBay experience!
