RANDY NEWMAN - Little Criminals - Record Vintage Vinyl LP 1977

Shipping to United States: Free

Little Criminals is a 1977 album by Randy Newman. Like most of Newman's work, the album eschews traditional pop-music themes ("I'll Be Home" is the only love song on the album) in favor of musical story-telling, often featuring quirky characters and cynical views. The first song on the album – "Short People" – became a hit single in its own right. The album itself peaked at #9 on the US Billboard 200 chart, Newman's highest-charting album to date.

Picture & lyrics inner sleeve look good, vinyl is clean, cover has some very light shelf and corner wear. Everything in very good condition. I have played this record years ago and do not recall the record skipping; that was years before the record was put into storage.

Please note that the cover may have some wear that is not highlighted in the description.
Please check the pictures carefully for edges, corners, ring wear, tears or anything else that might be of concern to you.

We don't CLEAN or PLAY the Records before listing them, Grading is done on a visual level only if at all, I am not comfortable putting a grade on, as it is ALWAYS subject to personal interpretation.

If there are defects I will do my best to bring them to your attention.

Overall I'd give it a B+
