May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
Booker T's classic "Green Onions" – a tune that was actually composed by accident, but went onto become his trademark track! This might be the second single for the song – which was originally a b-side – and it's backed here with the mellow and introspective "Behave ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two lesser known tracks from Booker T – but both nice! "Slim Jenkins" has kind of a slight western tinge on the guitar – stepping around a saloon floor with the kind of edgey approach you'd expect from a guy named "Slim"! "Groovin" is a nice instrumental ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Of all the "tramp" songs of the 60s, this funky duet by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas is certainly the best! It sounds great on this nice original 45, and it's backed by another duet that you'll certain recognize. 7-inch, Vinyl record
"Private Number" is one of the best singles to come out of Stax in the late 60's, and it's one of the greatest soul duets of all time! William and Judy sing back and forth about absence and desire – in a style that's a lot more sexy than we can ever remember from other male/female ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Original Windy C single of this Chicago soul classic, with stellar production by Curtis Mayfield on both sides, and the kind of sound that made the Burke family a legend while the Jackson 5 were still in diapers! Sweet heavenly vocals – and harmonies that are way better crafted than you'd ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 tracks from this sublime 70s harmony group! "Day After Day" has a nice rolling group soul sound, with east coast arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux, and a very catchy hook that grooves more than most of the group's work. "Are You Ready" is even better – a sweeping sweet ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
