Hard

LP (Item 395742) Warner, 1983 — Condition: Very Good+
A bit of an attempt to dive into early 80s mainstream soul – and one that stands the test of time a lot better than we would have expected, despite the super-polished production that all but buries the group's earlier harder-edged style. There's a lot of really nice soulful backing vocals, and sparkling Brit-synth-drum machine funk that gives the production a bit of a Nile Rodgers feel, and even reminds us, weirdly, of some of the modern touches in Raphael Saadiq's work. Tracks include "Is It Love", "I Fled", "Silver Lining", "A Man With A Good Car", and more.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some light wear.)

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.

Nightfly
Warner, 1982. Very Good+
A bit of jazzy magic from Fagen – stepping out from the cover of Steely Dan after the Gaucho album, and sounding pretty darn great on his own!

Somethin' Right
Emerald/P-Vine (Japan), 1982. Sealed
A lost AOR gem from a very unique singer – one with roots in the spiritual scene, but an ability to present crossover lyrics with a great little groove – in a way that makes for plenty of cool, catchy tunes that should have been huge! Instrumentation is lean, and very well-done – ... LP, Vinyl record album
