Loc'ed After Dark

LP (Item 40701) Delicious Vinyl, 1989 — Condition: Very Good+
Originally: 16.99
Also available
Tone-Loc — Loc'ed After Dark ... LP 13.99
Tone-Loc — Loc'ed After Dark ... CD 2.99
The crossover rap classic from Tone-Loc! The biggest couple of hits are still ubiquitous decades later – and Loc himself, with that raspy voice and smooth charisma, still stands as one of more unique voices of late 80s hip hop. Loc-ed After Dark is also an early proving ground for the soon-to-be mega-producers The Dust Brothers, with "Cutting Rhythms", "Next Episode", and "Don't Get Close" – plus the hits "Wild Thing", "Funky Cold Medina", and more.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing with DMM etch. The back cover has a promo stamp.)

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.

Biz's second LP from 1989 – what can we tell you about the Biz that you don't already know?

Run-DMC

King Of Rock
Profile, 1985. Near Mint-
Run-DMC's great second album, with rock hard production by Russell Simmons and classic cuts! It's fascinating to listen to this album all these years later, with the knowledge that this hungry hip hop act from Queens was so soon to conquer the world. Great stuff from a legendary crew!

Born To Mack
Dangerous/Jive, 1988. Very Good+
One of the quintessential albums that put the Bay Area on the hip hop map, and the first major label full length from one of the west coast's most prolific rappers.

Eddie Harris

Bossa Nova
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Sealed
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eugene Record

Eugene Record
Warner, 1977. Very Good
A great solo moment from Eugene Record – the singer who'd rose to fame with The Chi-Lites, and who still sounds pretty darn great here on his own! The album follows strongly from the best late styles of Record's previous group – and the tunes are a mix of ballads that Eugene could ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eargasm
Columbia, 1976. Sealed
A landmark album from Johnnie Taylor – a set that not only gave his career a giant boost, but which also helped shift southern soul into hip new territory in the late 70s!
