Tougher Than Leather

LP (Item 11652) Profile, 1988 — Condition: Near Mint-
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A once underappreciated later effort from the mighty Run DMC – with slightly harder hitting beats, and an overall tougher style – and it's ultimately the crew's last solid beginning-to-end LP! A worthy set that includes "Mary, Mary", "Beats To The Rhyme", "Run's House", "They Call Us Run-DMC", "Papa Crazy", the title track and more.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and a cut corner.)

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.

Bulldog Breaks Vol 2
Bulldog, 1991. Very Good
Released by Fog City Productions, in association with Luv N Haight, this LP's got a tight set of grooves that sound more like lost funk tracks than they do looped funky bits. The tracks are put together with a good feel to them, and with changes throughout that make the cuts work more like funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Renaissance
Universal/Motown, 2008. Very Good+ 2LP
A damn good record by Q-Tip – his first official album of the new millenium (not counting the unfairly mooted Kamaal The Abstract) – featuring both spacey keyboard grooves and some Native Tongues style boom bap! Q-Tip really does kind of pick up where he could have left off years ago, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Up Above, 2003. Very Good+ 2LP
All praise to the mighty J5 – reminding us in the early 00s that hip hop could still be about funky, party rockin' beats and flowing on beat, with witty rhymes! This album's mostly produced by Cut Chemist, though Nu Mark has a hand in a number of tunes, and there's a couple of tracks by the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Groove Holmes

American Pie
Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Very Good
Tasty small group work from Groove – with Mr Holmes himself on organ, and the great Larry Willis on electric piano – coming up with a twin electric organ/piano sound that's similar to the one that Groove used on his Comin On Home LP for Blue Note. The difference here is that things ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shorty Rogers

Martians Come Back!
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good
One of Shorty Rogers' greatest records – and a very nice set of tight west coast arrangements that really shows off the Rogers sense of sparkle and swing – a vibe that definitely comes through in the famous cover image too! Shorty wrote nearly all of the tracks, and the writing's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
