Fantastic lost soul from Chicago! "If I Could" has these amazing baroque arrangements, with a good string part, and a hard groove buried deep in the mix. The lead vocals are by a very soulful female singer, and she really carries the track over nicely, with an honesty that's fairly arresting. The flipside is nice, too – but is a bit smoother.  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Atco, 1973. Very Good
Nice nice early one by Sister Sledge, recorded years before they hit the discos! The track is a sweet soul track with a Philly mellow sound, and was written and produced by Phil Hurtt and Anthony Bell. Non-LP, we assume! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Popcorn/The Chicken
King, Late 60s. Very Good-
Stone funky! "Popcorn" is a massive instrumental classic that we hardly need to tell you about – and it's backed here by the great instrumental "Chicken", which features some nicely snapping drums, punctuated by tight horn parts, and a nice jangly guitar! 7-inch, Vinyl record
