Completely sublime! Shuggie Otis first wrote and recorded "Strawberry Letter 23", but it took The Brothers Johnson, and some smooth Quincy Jones production to make it a hit! The track loses none of it's original trippy soul in this version – and if anything, the better vocals really take it over the top!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Cobbala, 1983. Very Good
A silly electro groover from the early 80s. Lots of keyboards that go "wheeeeet" – and the flipside has a message about Jesse Jackson, done in a psuedo rap style. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1984. Very Good
The title track of his follow up LP to Juicy Fruit (even though the labels say this is from the LP Prime Time – perhaps a pre-release title for the album), this track is considerably more downtempo, but has the same crisp electronic drums, and nice light synth melodies piano lines floating ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Prelude, 1984. Near Mint-
Sweet electro grooving from Unlimited Touch – a record that's a bit more hook-heavy than some of their earlier work, but which also makes best use of the keys and drum machine bits to create a pretty great groove! Audrey Wheeler is on lead vocals, but the vocals are really late to come in ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 1989. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Great early work by Wrecks-N-Effect! The cut's the blueprint for the New Jack sound – but it's a lot harder than most of the hits, and sounds more like a James Brown remix project than a piece of modern soul! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Herbie Hancock

Hardrock (long, short)
Columbia, 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Basically a sequel of "Rockit" with a harder edge: electro grooves, 80s sounding Fairlight & Yamaha keys and loud guitars, plus D. St on the cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record
