Lollipop (long, short)

12-inch (Item 387684) Philadelphia International, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


4.50 11

A great little cut from Edwin Birdsong – an uptempo groover cut for Philly International in the years after he parted company with Roy Ayers – but oddly, a track that's very much in the smooth clubby groove that Roy was using at the same time. The track's got a strong bouncy beat – and a warm jazzy finish that makes it very nice! (White label promo.)  © 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.

Forget the hokey concept of this one, and dig the grooves! This single's got two sublime spacey disco cuts, with solid Philly instrumentalizing, all directed by Vince Montana, who arranged, produced, and conducted the session! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sound Of New York/Becket, 1982. Very Good
Maybe a bit goofy, but now a classic club track that's survived the test of time nicely as just about every DJ's theme song, with a monster scratchy guitar riff, and lots of that rolling bass pedal groove that was so popular in the early 80s. 12-inch, Vinyl record
