CONDITION DETAILS
Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested). Cover looks great; light-scuffing (front/back), small spot in upp-right on front where gloss has partially come off. 80s pressing with barcode on back. Inner sleeve is original (generic white). Spine is easy-to-read. Minor shelf-wear along top-edge, more noticeable wear along bottom-edge and corners. Opening is crisp with signs of light use. (Not a cut-out.)

ABOUT THE RECORD
Crystal Ball marked the recording debut of new guitarist Tommy Shaw. The track Mademoiselle was Tommy Shaw's vocal debut and the album's Top 40 hit. The album's title track would become a concert staple for the band as it was performed on every subsequent STYX tour with which Shaw was involved. Shooz was a bluesy rocker and had Shaw on slide guitar while James Young contributed a Hendrix-like solo to the middle of the track. This Old Man is a song that DeYoung wrote for his father and the impact his dad had on his life. Debussy's classical piece Clair De Lune served as the intro to the album's closing track Ballerina. The song just had DeYoung on piano and changed the key from D flat to C as the next track (Ballerina) started in C minor. Although the album peaked outside the Top 40 upon its 1976 release, but it would go platinum in 1978 after the success of the next album The Grand Illusion.
