Grand Master Melle Mel & The Furious Five

LP (Item 4120) Sugar Hill, 1984 — Condition: Very Good+
Later work from Grand Master Melle Mel and the Furious Five – released in '84, the same year Mel was featured in the still hilarious Beat Street! The crew does it's best to live up to its mighty past, bringing in some horns, keys, guitar and bass (courtesy of Living Colour's Doug Wimbush). Features a remake of Lightnin' Rod's "Hustlers Convention" and a remix of "White Lines", plus "We Don't Work For Free", "World War III", "Yesterday", "At The Party", "The Truth", "Can't Keep Running Away", and "The "New Adventures Of Grand Master".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has 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.
