Rat Race/If You Don't Come Back

7-inch (Item 117502) Atlantic, 1963 — Condition: Near Mint-
(Labels have some marker.)

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.

An interesting single from The Drifters – and a rare one, too! "Aretha" is a great little groover, with an uptempo uptown sound, and some great lyrics sung by a guy who's trying to get his girlfriend out for the night. "Baby What I Mean" is uptempo and hard, too – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Write To Me/Your Old Lady
Atlantic, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Rare work by The Isleys – one of their few singles for Atlantic! "Write To Me" is an incredible ballad cut – with vocals that are completely sublime, and a lot like The Drifters at their best, handled here in a perfect uptown soul mode, and with some wild falsetto touches! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

My Balloon's Going Up/Giving Up Dancing
Atlantic, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Not hard and funky, but a nice bit of Philly soul, done by the boys from Texas. "My Baloon's Going Up" is amazing – with soaring harmonies, nice vibes, and a great great hook that you'll remember long after the track is over. Great stuff, and one of our favorite records ever by ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
