LP, Vinyl record album

4.80 4

Oddly this compilation of late 80s California rap has MC Eiht and Mike T of CMW on the cover, but they're not featured. Still not a bad selection of west coast numbers from that time, including the LA version of the 2 Live Crew, pre-Luke, performing "What I Like". 10 tracks in all, including "Better Bring A Gun" and "Payback's A Mother" by King Tee, "All About Money" by Kool Rock Jay & DJ Slice, "6 In The Morning" by Ice T, "My Posse" by Ice Cube, "Underwater Rimes" by Digital Underground, "Ny Rapper" by Bobby Jimmy and "This Beat Be Smooth" and "Do You Wanna Go To The Liquor Store" by Toddy Tee & Mixmaster Spade. (Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Tamla, 1976. Very Good
An incredible record – quite possibly our favorite ever by Marvin Gaye! The album is quite unique – written by Leon Ware, and recorded in collaboration with him – done as a "suite" of tracks based on themes of passion, joy, and new love – all of which were very ... LP, Vinyl record album

General Crook
Wand, 1974. Very Good
The only full album ever cut by General Crook – a great soul talent from Chicago who's best known for his earlier funky 45s! This album's great, though, and it has Crook moving past the hard funk of earlier days – into a sweet mellow soul vein that's somewhere in the territory of Leroy ... LP, Vinyl record album
