This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap.
We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't
look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time,
we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape —
which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be
torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played,
the record will still qualify as "Sealed".
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.
Sweet jazzy work from War – a record that has them stretching things out a bit from before, and finding new ways to groove for the second half of the 70s! All the core elements are still firmly in place – that sublime blend of jazz, soul, funk, and Latin elements – but there's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
War delivers the word, and a whole lot more as well – that amazing blend of styles that always made the group way more than just the sum of its parts! The classic groove is very firmly in place here – a great style that mixes jazz funk with a freer jamming style borrowed from Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album
A tasty set from Mandrill – one of their first records away from the Polydor label, but every bit as great as later efforts for that company, especially Mandrilland.

A classic set by one of the greatest soul singers of the 60s – filled with strong original tunes taken completely over the top by Garnet's incredible vocals! The style is completely sublime – a unique blend of the rough and the smooth that would be taken up by other singers in years to ... LP, Vinyl record album
A heavy bit of boogie from Southroad Connection – a large ensemble funk outfit with a warm and clubby style! The tracks on the set burn along in a nice late disco mode – with plenty of real instrumentation and small band rhythms at the bottom, but a polished groove overall that nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the better albums by this great Chicago soul studio group – but all of them are pretty nice! The great Richard Evans is still at the head of The Strings, and the album features solo work by Charles Stepney and Lennie Druss, in a cool breezy Chess/Cadet soul jazz kind of mode. The ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the few strong records on the Midland label – an imprint mostly known for its mainstream disco work in the 70s. Universe City are a vocal quintet arranged and produced for the set by John Davis – in a style that's still pretty disco, but which has a much stronger Philly ... LP, Vinyl record album
What can we say? Most of the biggest hits, and many of the very best tracks cut in the prime of Al Green's career – which is to say some of the very best Memphis soul ever recorded! 10 essential tracks in all, and it's just one of these Greatest Hits packages of pure, inarguable perection ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic Jones Girls for Philly! The record's a landmark album in the shift from Philly disco to sophisticated modern – and the smooth tight vocals of The Jones Girls are to the latter half of Philly what the runaway singing of Three Degrees were to the early half. Includes their excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album
Who cares about "someone you love"? We're just happy that Barry White's singing for us! The album's one of the maestro's biggest selling albums of the 70s, and for good reason – as the whole thing's a sexy symphony all the way through, filled with as many stepping rhythms as it is ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very big crossover moment for the Philly sound, and one of the biggest hits by the studio combo that drove the big Gamble/Huff hits of the 70s! The record's a great batch of smooth Philly instrumentals – not really disco, although the tracks certainly crossed over there – more ... LP, Vinyl record album
An overlooked chapter in the New Birth sound of the 70s – one that has the group still working with all that joyous, righteous ensemble energy of their previous records – but with a slightly different vibe as well! There's been a few changes since before – no more leadership from ... LP, Vinyl record album
