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.
An undisputed groover! The track's a killer uptempo one from James' later years on King – and it's got this amazing beat that snaps along at a full deep stride. Very nice stuff, and the kind of tight grooving that would show up later in his work with the JBs – done here earlier, with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
This is the kind of killer hard soul material that made James' late 60s years so incredible! "There Was a Time" is one of our favorite-ever tracks by him, and it's got a massive kind of soulful energy that's sometimes missing from other tracks at the time. "I Can't Stand ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A killer early funky track by James and The JBs – and one that has that perfect improvised funk groove that the band was honing at the time. The band vamps in the background with a nice choppy riff – while James raps over the top, goading them on, and driving them onto new funky ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Killer funky! "Hot Pants" is one of James' pivotal tracks from the early 70s – and as you'll hear on this 3-part version, he'd totally perfected his masterful recording style of endless non-stop party grooves. The band keeps on playing for a very long time, and each part stands as ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Unlike Tom the Peeper, the other single of theirs we've had, "Friends or Lovers" is a beautiful sweet soul ballad, and one of the classics of the east coast group sound of the early 70s. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Massive funkiness from the early 70s! "Jungle Fever" is one of those cuts that we never tire of – with pounding slow funk drums that still send a shiver down our spine. "Cha Ka Cha" is a slow Latin groover – with almost an LA Chicano funk sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great funky instrumental, with lots of moog in it – a little like "Popcorn", but funkier! "Pinch Of Salt" is pretty nice too – uptempo and instrumental, with a nice dose of organ! 7-inch, Vinyl record
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of many great singles cut by Garland Green that never made it to LP! "Sweet Loving" is a fantastic mellow soul number – one that begins with a slow plodding bass, then gives way to some wonderfully pure focals from Garland, the kind he sings that always sends chills down our ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Incredible early Motown! We've never heard of Sherri and Sammy before – but they're a heck of a duo, both of them singing with voices that are a lot rawer than you'd expect for the label. "That's Why" is an incredible deep soul number – done at a slow loping pace, with Sammy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
