Allies – Allies (Pre-Owned Vinyl) Light Records 1985
Outer Jacket = VG
Inner Sleeve = generic
Vinyl Record = VG
With the 1985 debut album, Allies took the CCM world by storm with their brand of AOR commercial rock featuring mega-hooks with a distinct bite! Fans of Van Halen, Idle Cure, Journey, later period Sweet Comfort Band, and Petra would lose their minds as the band toured and dominated both radio and CCM sales charts.
Allies produced classic rock-pop albums that were ahead of their time for the Christian market in the late ’80s. Before the Allies, Thomas was already well known in Christian circles for his role in the highly influential group, Sweet Comfort Band (which also included Bryan Duncan). The demise of that seminal act led
him to contact old friends for a reunion of ex’s from two previous outings: he had played with Carlisle and Jim Erikson in the 1970's band Psalm 150 (which also included future members of Andraé Crouch’s Disciples, Damn Yankees, and Night Ranger) and with Sam Scott and Matt Chapman in a group called Sonrise. Thus in 1984 the Allies were born in San Bernardino, California. In later years, Chapman would turn up playing bass in Clash of Symbols, and Carlisle would earn fame for his ballad “Butterfly Kisses,” written with Thomas.

We make every effort to describe vinyl accurately. On occasion their may be drop down selection for different versions, variation or conditions. If we only have 1 copy available, you will see it described here in more detail. Please read over the condition carefully. We describe both the record jacket and the vinyl record. We will also let you know if it contains a printed inner-sleeve and or other inserts such as lyric sheet and describe those as well. If nothing is listed it is not included.
Professionally Cleaned w/ 3 Mil Poly Sleeve
All of our pre-owned records are professionally cleaned and placed in a premium rice paper, anti-static master inner-sleeve, not one of those cheap white paper sleeves. We also place the outer record jacket in a new 3 mil poly sleeve which protects the jacket cover and spine, providing durability and longevity. When your vinyl arrives it will arrive shipped outside the the jacket. This provides further protection from damage. Please make sure you purchase the $5 insurance at checkout which covers your purchase from postal damage and harm.
