10CC ... " Bloody Tourists " .... Polydor PD-1-6161. 1978 Pop Rock / Art Rock LP. Stereo. Vinyl VG+. Cover VG+.10cc are an English art rock band who achieved their greatest commercial success in the 1970s. The band initially consisted of four musicians "Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, and Lol Creme "who had written and recorded together for some three years, before assuming the "10cc" name in 1972. For the most part, 10cc featured two strong songwriting teams, one 'commercial' and one 'artistic', but both teams injected sharp wit into lyrically dextrous and musically varied songs. Stewart and Gouldman were predominantly pop-song-writers, who created most of the band's accessible songs. By way of contrast, Godley and Creme were the predominantly experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility and cinematic inspired writing. Every member was a multi-instrumentalist, singer, writer and producer. Bloody Tourists was the sixth studio album by 10cc and the second to be produced following the band's 1976 split. It yielded the singles "Dreadlock Holiday", which reached No.1 in the UK in August 1978, and "Reds in My Bed", which did not chart. "For You and I" was issued as a double a-side single with "I'm Not in Love" in the autumn of 1979 but also didn't chart. "For you and I" was also issued in the US, with promo copies being available as a 12" single. "Dreadlock Holiday" was inspired by The Moody Blues singer Justin Hayward's experiences while on holiday in the Caribbean. Bloody Tourists, which featured cover art created by Hipgnosis, reached No.3 in the UK album charts and No. 69 in the United States.

I use GOLDMINE: STANDARD CATALOG OF AMERICAN RECORDS for grading guidelines. Therefore, NM (Near Mint) will not be seen unless the album is still in original shrinkwrap. Most all of the albums and covers I sell will be VERY GOOD + (or) VERY GOOD. Here are Goldmine's defintions of those two classifications. Verbatim in part. VG+ VINYL > may show some slight sign of wear, including light scuffs or very light scratches that do not affect the listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are okay. Minor signs of handling are okay, too, such as telltale marks around the center hole. There may be some very light ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. VG+ COVERS > are close to their near mint counterparts. Only close. A cover may be marred by a cutout marking (cut corner, small hole punch, a cut in the spine) or promotional stamp. There may be some slight signs of handling, such as light creasing in the corners. There may be slight signs of wear at the most vulnerable areas, even a bit of ring wear. But all in all, except for a few minor imperfections, this should be a very nice copy. VG VINYL > have more obvious flaws. They may lack some of the original factory gloss. Groove wear may be evident, as well as light scratches. When played, a VG record will porbably have some surface noise, especially at the beginning of a song and at the end. But the noise will not overpower the music. You may run into an audible surface scratch, but will not be a major detraction from the music. Minor writing, tape, or a sticker may detract from the label. But overall, the record will still remain a fine listening experience, just not the same as if the record was in better condition. VG COVERS > have more signs of wear, such as minot seam splits, most common at the bottom center, middle of the spine, and the upper and lower right where the record is removed from the cover. These will not be overwhelming, and can be neatly repaired. Also, minor writing, tape, or stickers may detract from the cover. Visible ringwear will be more evident. There could be minor scuffing or cut out markings.Though a VG cover will still be pleasing to the eye, there's no way it could pass as new. FAIR or POOR vinyl I usually throw away, unless it's rare. FAIR or POOR covers may sometimes be sold, but only if the vinyl is still very good, and the album itself is considered collectable. I usually price this kind of quality very low. ************Please, don't hesitate to ask questions if you have any. It is NOT an inconvenience to me. Talking about records has always been fun to me.
