Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Linda Clifford goes a bit over the top with this one – a lavish double-length set, of the sort that ended up bankrupting the Curtom label during the late 70s! Linda's very much in full-disco mode, singing to long clubby arrangements by Gil Askey that have more strings than before – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Linda's first effort for Curtom, and a record that's got a bit more soul than some of her later more disco-oriented albums. Unfortunately, it's also got a bit more schmaltz – but if you stay away from the sillier cuts, you'll get some tasty mellow soul that's a good bridge between Linda's ... LP, Vinyl record album
The standout classic from Curtom disco diva Linda Clifford – and an album that showed that Chicago could rival Philly in the clubby groove department! Linda has a proud presence that really matches that of her better-known sisters in the City Of Brotherly Love – and she's singing here ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the last great 70s soundtracks on Curtom Records – a smoking little set that pairs the music of Curtis Mayfield with the vocals of Mavis Staples! Curtis is very much in charge of the record from the start, and works in a hard-stepping and righteous mode that recalls his earlier work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Former Impressions singer Ralph Johnson heads up this Chicago soul quartet from the 70's, and the album shares the production talents of Jerry Butler, Bunny Sigler, Rich Tufo, Lowrell Simon, and Eugene McDaniels. The sound is a mix of mid 70's Curtom funk and Chicago soul vocal stylings, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little album by The Impressions – possibly their best of the 70s! The record's got a very solid harmony soul approach, and Lowrell Simon wrote and produced a number of tracks with Rich Tufo – giving the album the same sweet sexy sound that he brought to his best solo records, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very strange release on Curtom – and we're not sure if we should call it a rock album or a soul album! Bobby Whiteside produced and arranged, and he's got sort of a 70's AM radio sound, with lots of pop harmonies, and catchy overproduced hooks. Titles include "Pen Of A Poet", ... LP, Vinyl record album
The Moments' last album for Sylvia Robinson, and kind of a mish-mash of styles and approaches – but also a record with some really nice moments! The group's harmony style is as smooth as ever – heading towards the more polished approach the trio would take as Ray Goodman & Brown ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quite possibly The Moments' last good album, and a record that has them mixing a bit of funkiness into their usual style of sweet group soul. There's a mix of modern soul with some of the group's older styles – and the harmonies are as great as ever, perhaps more so because the production ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warmly grooving 70s soul from The Staple Singers – recorded in a fuller Memphis mode that's miles from their gospel roots, but still plenty darn nice! The style here is very much in keeping with the hit Staples mode of the time – righteous, full, but still nice and earthy at the bottom ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great sense of righteousness and groove – the key mix that made the O'Jays so great back in the day – and which really helped put the Philly International enterprise on the map! The album's miles from the group's simple harmony soul roots – even though those were pretty darn ... LP, Vinyl record album
The move to Philly International did wonders for Lou's career – and there's no denying that the smooth soul sound of Gamble and Huff worked perfectly with his rich vocal style! The "classy" setting took Lou to a whole new level, while also providing a good force for his still-soulfu ... LP, Vinyl record album
