Bust Me Out

LP (Item 36583) Mercury, 1984 — Condition: Very Good+

More electro than hip hop – especially when you listen to raps like "Same Day Service", which has Duke essentially reading a "same day service" sign at a photo lab over and over! Still, the production is pretty tasty – and many tracks feature additional help from Doug Wimbush and Keith LeBlanc, who give the record a good New York downtown electro feel. Lots of keyboards, riffing bass, guitar washes, and that electric Celluloid funk sound – and if you can get past the raps (which aren't on every track), the album's got some nice moments! Titles include "Bust Me Out", "Who Dat", "Zip Me Up", "Live Wire", "You Without Me", and "Kalimba Song". Hilarious mid-80s cover design, too!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner, wear, and aging.)

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.
