What Happened

LP (Item 22575) Brunswick, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

A stunning early set from The Artistics – and exactly the kind of record that shows why they were one of the best Chicago soul groups at the end of the 60s! The harmonies are wonderful – smooth, but with a rough undercurrent too – balanced at a level that few groups could touch at the time, save maybe The Four Tops! Yet the style's way different than Motown, too – very much in that loping Brunswick soul style of the time, which means there's all these great grooves that really keep things going – even at mellower moments. Eugene Record produced and wrote most of the tracks – and titles include "What Happened", "Walking Tall", "With These Hands", "Why Did She Have To Leave Me", "When I'm Not Around", "Yesterday's Girl", and "Price Of Love".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some discoloration from age, light wear, and splitting in the spine.)

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.
