LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Kool Keith adds Black Elvis to his always expanding collection of personalities. This time, two tracks produced by Kut Masta Kurt and the rest produced by Kool Keith. Maybe as a way of making up for saying "I don't neeeed Zapp, I don't neeeed Roger Troutman," on a record a few years back, Roger is featured on "Master of the Game", complete with the classic Zapp vocoder effects. Overall, the sound is similar to the Dr. Dooom LP, with maybe a few more futuristic verses and less emphasis on how everyone else is biting his style. Tracks include "Rockets On The Battlefield", "Livin Astro", "Supergalactic Lover", "I'm Seein Robots", "Static", "Black Elvis", "Maxi Curls", "Keith Turbo", "Fine Girls", "The Girls Don't Like The Job", "Clifton", "All The Time", and "I Don't Play"  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner with some waviness and a few small peeled spots.)

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.
