PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING:


Please read the entire auction listing, including shipping costs, before writing to ask a question.





OUR GOAL IS CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. In order to meet that goal, we will ALWAYS work with our customers on any concerns that may arise. In theunlikely instance that you feel the need to open a resolution dispute before working with us, you will immediately be blocked from any further chance to acquire the rare music we present each and every week.






Payment is required within seven days. We mail all paid items ONE WEEK after auctions end. Please keep in mind our listings are time consuming in detail and we are often traveling to find these gems, which at times delays the delivery schedule by a day or two. We ALWAYS process and ship every paid order. We have no control over parcels once they are mailed from our local Post Office. Overseas mail to some countries (Italy, Russia, France, in particular) has became very slow. Opening a dispute for slow mail is unacceptable and will result in blocking the bidder. We work hard to provide excellent service as is represented by our 8000 plus positive feedback.






We use a VPI machine and thoroughly clean all records. Each order is carefully packaged by removing the LP from the jacket to avoid seam splits, use of 3 ml plastic cover sleeves over each LP and jacket, cardboard pad inserts, and placed in sturdy record mailers for safe delivery.






We take Customer Service seriously, and want you to be satisfied. Please give us 5 stars in each category through the feedback system, and we will be able to effectively continue to fulfill your passion for rare and collectible music! We have served thousands of satisfied customers - far more than our feedback records indicate - and our aim is to continue to do so.

BUCKINGHAM & NICKS



COLLECTION WORTHY .....CLEAN....44 years ago FIRST PRINT


Sought after original 1973 first pressing vinyl in thick gatefold cover, this lone album cut by a young and ambitious (and romantically attached) Stevi Nicks (with great nude photo & color feather) and Lindsey Buckingham a short two years before joining Fleetwood Mac is well worth digging out for your turntable.

The small backing band includes legendary percussionist Jim Keltner and original Electric Prunes bassist Mark Tullin

Never released on CD ...There are a few CD versions floating around, but they were burned from vinyl copies, so don't be fooled. Considering what the duo was to later accomplish, Buckingham Nicks is an engaging listen and served as a proving ground of sorts for both artists' songwriting chops and for Buckingham's skills as an emerging studio craftsman. It was a good enough résumé' for Fleetwood Mac, who re-recorded the beautifully cerebral "Crystal" when the duo joined them in 1975 only to spiral into superstardom.

Buckingham & Nicks is a beautifully crafted album, back in the early 70's, when they were waiting tables and cleaning apartments, this, their only album is as fresh and beautiful today as when it was originally released, some 44 years ago. Nicks and Buckingham were in love, and their harmonies here soar differently than they have managed since their merger with Fleetwood Mac. Diehard Mac fans know that Crystal and Don't Let Me Down Again were originally on this album. "Stevi" (as misprinted on the LP) sang with beautiful youth - her trademark raspy voice more tender than in later years. Her songs "Crying In The Night", "Long Distance Winner", and "Races Are Run" are exquisite. Buckingham's guitar playing is exceptional and is showcased on instrumentals as well as extended solos - the highlight of which is on the incredible 7+ minute duet "Frozen Love" - The song which ultimately resulted in the duo being asked to join Fleetwood Mac. Why commercial success tends to come well after such a triumph is hard to understand. This album, however, is a success in every aspect.

Why is it not available on compact disc ? Nicks and Buckingham jointly own the rights to it; Nicks wants it released on CD, but Buckingham, for whatever reason, does not, making a clean vinyl original all the more worthwhile.

  • "Crying in the Night" (Nicks) - 2:48

  • "Stephanie" (Buckingham) - 2:12

  • "Without a Leg to Stand On" (Buckingham) - 2:09

  • "Crystal" (Nicks) - 3:41

  • "Long Distance Winner" (Nicks) - 4:50

  • "Don't Let Me Down Again" (Buckingham) - 3:52

  • "Django" (Lewis) - 1:02

  • "Races Are Run" (Nicks) - 4:14

  • "Lola (My Love)" (Buckingham) - 3:44

  • "Frozen Love" (Nicks, Buckingham) - 7:16







CONDITION: The cover: The thick gatefold cover is clean, been in careful hands the past44 years, rated: nice "EX" (excellent) while the back cover has a 'touch' of shelf rub just starting (nothing bad) ...still altogether stiff, sharp and vibrant -- no bends, no writing, no seam splits, all very solid....fresh original colors collection worthy rarity ...
