❔

A dark classic that broke out of the underground and forever transformed the world of dance music! "Blue Monday" has this infectious bass/keyboard riff that you'll recognize immediately – and which you've heard emulated a million times in electro house tracks from later on in the 80s. "The Beach" is more of the same – kind of a dub version of the hit.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.

What can we say? Despite the stupid appearance of the band, "White Horse" was a classic breakdance/electro track that crossed over so big it had kids in Kansas running out to by parachute pants and squares of linoleum to play along with the kids in the Bronx.

One of the first strong R&B cuts to go hip hop, with beats that are great, and which mix together perfectly with so many other tracks from the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Believe it or not this early Jesse Saunders house single has some Three Stooges vocal samples peppered throughout the mix over the spare drum machine and sampler groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record

BC, Early 80s. Very Good+
Nice 12" version of this 80s groove number, with a tight "Heartbeat" type groove that's got a nice old school feel, some squelchy synths to give it electro authenticity, and a rolling almost stepper's piano line! 12-inch, Vinyl record
