Money (Dollar Bill Y'all) (voc, inst)

12-inch (Item 22629) Spring, 1983 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

An oft-quoted, classic old school track from one of rap's pioneering MC's, essential to any hip hop collection, that ought to need no introduction from us. Gets a place in the history books too for the early appearance of Russell Simmons as producer.  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good+
Early single from old school pioneer Busy B. With that live/party sound along the lines of Grandmaster Flash's "Birthday Party." The production has a little less of the 'slap bass' sound than some of the other Sugarhill singles from that time. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Wreck, 1994. Very Good
Sometimes we forget just how dope the production on these early Black Moon singles is. "I Got Cha Opin" is the second hit from the first LP. On "Reality" even with it's hardcore lyrics, the Beatminers still make amazing use of a Roy Ayers' mellow "We Live In Brooklyn." ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sugar Hill, 1982. Very Good+
