This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
A surprisingly great set from The Four Tops – hardly the throwaway effort you might expect from some of the other Casablanca projects of the time – and instead a really solid effort that follows strongly from the sound of the group's best moments during their ABC Records years! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty darn big collection of work from the 4 Tops – collecting the best of their early years at Motown on up through the 70s. There's a total of 39 tracks on the set, and titles include "Baby I Need Your Loving", "Ask The Lonely", "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the hardest, rawest Four Tops album on 60s Motown – a unique live session, recorded at the Roostertail Nightclub in Detroit – with a sound that shows that the Tops could maybe shine even more away from the studio! Levi Stubbs' leads are especially incredible – not just a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very hip album from the Four Tops – cut with kind of a political/social edge, and a heavy vibe that was similar to what the Temptations had been using on some of their important albums for Motown at the end of the 60s. In fact, this one's got so much of that righteous Temps vibe that we ... LP, Vinyl record album
The Four Tops are definitely on top with this sweet early set – a record that not only shows them sparkling away from some of their big singles of the time, but also handling some other wonderful material in their sublime soul group style! The set includes some lesser-known Motown tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A seminal step forward for this legendary group – easily one of the greatest albums they ever cut! With ABC, the Jacksons are expanding their sound with the club-oriented grooves of the time – using Holland, Dozier, and Holland on many cuts, trying for a similar soaring groove as some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great work by a Motown group who never really got their due – a quintet with some really wonderful vocal interplay, and a massive way of putting over a groove! The vocal range is really amazing – really living up to the "dynamic" in the group's name – especially on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A bit of a cheesy package – a picture disc with a very 80s looking drawn image of Michael and his brothers, a poster, and a white glove covered with glittery golden J5 logos. 14 nice tracks though: "I Want You Back", "ABC", "I'll Be There", "The Love You ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice selection from the early years of Motown, showcasing some of the great Motor City soul talent that would go on to make the label one of the greatest movers in the R&B and pop world! 10 numbers in all, including "Money" and "Oh I Apologize" by Barrett Strong; "Way ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little set from Phyllis St James – a Motown album from the mid 80s, and one that was crucially overlooked at the time! At a time when most of her contemporaries were losing a bit of control in the studio, Phyllis is still very firmly in charge – writing and arranging most of ... LP, Vinyl record album
