(Promo.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Kelis

Kaleidoscope
Virgin, 1999. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
At the time of this album's original release, the Neptunes had yet to take over the world, so it barely saw the light of day. Combining Chad & Pharrel's tight beats and infectious ghettofied songcraft with Kelis' sweet vocals, we can't really tell what the folks at the label were thinking, as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Esperanza Spalding

Radio Music Society
Telarc, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Maybe the greatest record so far from the lovely Esperanza Spalding – a set that has her moving farther from jazz, into a wonderfully warm style of soul music overall! The mix of modes is exquisite – a blend of Spalding's jazz-trained vocals with some beautiful arrangements that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Red Star/Sony, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP
A collection of tracks put together by the folks at Heineken's Red Star Foundation – a program that's designed to support "urban influence music" (whatever that means!) The upshot of the package is that it's a great set of underground soul grooves – perhaps not as cutting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mourning A BLKstar

Cycle
Don Giovanni, 2020. Near Mint- 2LP
A fantastic album from Mourning A BLKstar – even more powerful than their set dedicated to Eric Garner, and a batch of material that really gets at the righteous energy of this Cleveland combo! The group see themselves as part of the James Baldwin tradition of the artist bearing witness ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barry & The Fountains

Great Extreme
Barry & The Fountains, 2020. Sealed
Contemporary deep soul from Barry Jean Fontenot – a singer who should be destined to be huge, given the power and presence he has on this six track release! Barry knows how to soar like a classic soul singer, but also never hangs his music on cliches – as the sound here is very much ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Gettin' Around
Blue Note, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A really unusual album for Dexter Gordon – one that has him working in a quintet with vibes by Bobby Hutcherson! Hutcherson's sound really transforms the session, giving it a shimmering middleground that disperses the dominance that Gordon's tenor usually has – and creating a warm, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Volt, 1964. Very Good+
An album with a very fitting title – as the whole set is practically a dictionary of soul music, for anyone who needs an understanding of the genre! The cover alone tells you that the set is something special – and the sounds within are even better – classic Otis Redding on Stax ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Dunlap

Party In Me
Capitol, 1981. Near Mint-
Wonderful work from Gene Dunlap – a jazzy soul drummer, and also a maestro with a killer ear for a modern soul groove! The album's got a mix of grooves and sophistication that are a bit like the best early 80s material from Roy Ayers – never chartbound, and never too commercial – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

Polar AC
CTI, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Warm and wonderful work from Freddie Hubbard – a killer of an album recorded for CTI, and one of his most soulful efforts for the label! The album's got a bit more of a human heart than some of the more cosmic sessions Freddie cut at the time – a bit more contemplative and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan

Chaka Khan
Warner, 1982. Near Mint-
Great stuff – and one of the gems that Arif Mardin produced for Chaka during her immediate solo years after leaving Rufus. Mardin's sweet soulful arrangements are a perfect fit for Chaka's voice – not only on soul tracks like "Tearin' It Up", "Got To Be There", ... LP, Vinyl record album
