Thriller

LP (Item 41975) Epic, 1982 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold
Also available
Michael Jackson — Thriller ... LP 19.99

Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory that's somewhat more poppy, but still quite soulful overall. And yes, the success of the album meant that cuts like "Billie Jean", "Thriller", and "Beat It" got plenty of play – thanks to both heavy radio and video rotation – but a few decades later, there's still a tremendous amount of depth here – on great cuts like "Human Nature", "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin", and "PYT" – which all hold up nicely!  © 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.

Bad
Epic, 1987. Very Good+ Gatefold

Off The Wall
Epic, 1979. Very Good Gatefold
Michael, if only you'd stayed at this level! This 1979 solo album by Michael is a killer batch of soul grooves – one of his best moments ever, and a crowning cap to a stellar 70s run – both as a younger solo act, and with the whole Jackson family!

Joneses

Joneses
Epic, 1977. Very Good
A killer for the Joneses – probably their strongest album all the way through, thanks to some great production and arrangements by Bobby Eli!

Epic, 1988. Very Good
Another nice one from Sade – perhaps not as edgey as some of her earlier work, recorded in a slightly smoother style, but still quite nice to our ears – as Sade's always been a pleasure, no matter what the setting!

The huge breakout album from Basia – a set that had the Polish-born singer reaching out to the well-deserved global fame that you might guess from the title!

The voice of Lou Rawls is wonderful in so many different settings – in early gospel work with the Pilgrim Travelers, in 60s soul with HB Barnum and David Axelrod, and even hitting a Philly groove in the late 70s!
