Donal Leace

LP (Item 36615) Atlantic, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

Donal Leace was one of a few hip soul acts that Roberta Flack brought to Atlantic during her strongest period with the label – and he's a soulful folk singer whose work reminds us of certain folksy moments on Flack's first few albums. There's less of a Terry Callier sound than a Tim Hardin one – and the backing is filled with jazzy inflections laid down by players like Keith Jarrett, David Spinozza, Ray Lucas, Bernard Purdie, and Ron Carter. Flack produced – and again, you can definitely hear her love of folk music on the LP. Titles include "Andrea", "Midnight Cowboy", "Shimaree", "Sad Lisa", "What Does It Take", and "Today Won't Come Again".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has promo and radio station stamps, a cutout notch, some ring & edge wear, and mostly split top seam.)

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.
