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.
James Brown cooking it live – recorded (as the cover says) "at home in Augusta, Georgia with his bad self"! The groove here is a nice extension of earlier Apollo modes – one that shows the increasing funkiness of the James Brown Band, captured with a raw power that few other ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the stranger James Brown albums from the 60s! The record is one of the only vocal albums he cut for the Smash label – and it was issued during a time when James was strangely contracted to two labels – King and Smash. His dual contract situation was that he couldn't record any ... LP, Vinyl record album
James Brown gets a new injection of life at the end of the 80s – thanks to a collaboration here with Full Force, who wrote, arranged, and produced the album! The groove here is often more in a Full Force mode than you might expect from James – a full-on 80s urban sound, filled with ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great collection of 60s work by James – one that goes way past the hits, to show the birth of the funky style that would forever be James' calling card in the 70s! The package starts in the earlier King R&B years – with tracks that are hard and soulful, yet which also have a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great reissue of James' second set of tracks recorded live at the famous Apollo Theatre! This is a weird little Rhino reissue from the 80s – featuring 9 tracks from the original 2LP set: "It May Be The Last Time", "I Feel Good (I Got You)", "Prisoner Of Love", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Here's where things really started getting interesting for James Brown! The album was issued right around the same time as James' single "Out Of Sight" on Smash – and like that track, "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" was one of the first to use that "instruments on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ahhhh. . . This one takes us back to the 80s – when there was so little good work by James in print that Rhino was actually able to scoop him up for a quickie compilation. And, given the bias of the time, most of the work on the set's from the mid/late 60s King years – which is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great reissue of James' second set of tracks recorded live at the famous Apollo Theatre! This is a weird little Rhino reissue from the 80s – featuring 9 tracks from the original 2LP set. Titles include the duet version of "Think", plus "Thanks", "Let Yourself ... LP, Vinyl record album
Obscure bit of soulful gospel produced by James Brown for King. Kay Robinson's got a great voice, and the arrangements are similar to some of James' hard soul albums from the time. There's no breakbeat cuts here, but the music is quite strong, and given the strength of the arrangements, you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice stuff from one of our favorite R&B bandleaders of the 50s! These excellent tracks pop along with a tight rolling groove and a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and Bradshaw did a good job of recruiting some of the ...
