12-inch (Item 41474) Beauty & The Beat, Mid 80s — Condition: Near Mint-
(pic cover)

...

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Shady/Interscope, 2003. Near Mint-
The first single from the Shady/Aftermath debut LP. It's a damn nice one as far as this stuff goes – Dre's increasingly baroque synth blips get a good workout here, as on the Get Rich LP, for a slower club grind. The B-side "Backdown" is another strong LP track. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Kelli-Arts, Early 80s. Near Mint-
An obscure one by this late Chicago soul combo – with a strong harmony sound that's in the best mode of some of the city's 70s groups, and a smooth 80s groove style that makes both tracks pop nicely with keyboards and bass. 12-inch, Vinyl record
West End, 1980. Near Mint-
Is It All Over My Face is one of the strangest club tracks from the West End years – but a great one! The cut's an obvious reference to some of the more sensual practices of the club scene, and it's got a nice dark sound to it that's a good example of the way that late disco, early house, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
RCA, 1982. Very Good+
Webster Lewis is working with Michael on both of these tracks – giving the grooves a slightly jazzy bounce that's similar to Lewis' own club work for Columbia! "Still Got The Magic" is a thumping midtempo number that's heavy on the bottom, but soars a bit on the top with Wycoff's ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
