then checkout as usual.
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.
A great little album that's often overshadowed by its hit – the 15 minute "B-Movie", which was sort of an overly-wrought protest piece about how the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 was going to turn America into a bad b-movie. Not that that track's bad – although its ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice best-of collection of Gil's work on Arista – issued in the 80s, with Gil looking terrible in a "Members Only" kind of way on the cover, and with the extra new track "Re-Ron", an electro track about Ronald Reagan! Still, there's more than enough nice moments – ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little live album – one that's quite different than Gil Scott-Heron's double-length set for Arista – and a set that serves as a key bridge between his early protest work and his emerging vocal sensibility! The set features a fair bit of longer spoken passages – but unlike ... LP, Vinyl record album
Along with Perfect Angel and Adventures In Paradise, this is one of the key albums of Minnie's career – recorded when she was at the height of her power, forging a whole new soul sound that mixed her incredible voice with jazzy modern arrangements that were a few years ahead of most of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A seminal step forward for this legendary group – easily one of the greatest albums they ever cut! With ABC, the Jacksons are expanding their sound with the club-oriented grooves of the time – using Holland, Dozier, and Holland on many cuts, trying for a similar soaring groove as some ... LP, Vinyl record album
A landmark record from Maria Muldaur – quite different than the rougher folsky work she cut in the 60s – and done with a really warm studio sound that's pure 70s all the way through! Maria's working here with some older folksy contemporaries – like David Grisman, Ry Cooder, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buddah issue of some material that Joe recorded earlier that was released on the Vee Jay label before his big Sound Stage 7 hits. If you don't know the material, it's got a nice raw sound, and more of a southern soul feel than his later work (although that was pretty darn good, too). The tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Our favorite album ever from Johnnie Taylor – an incredible set from the late 70s that really has Taylor reinventing his sound – and coming across as a great talent for a mellow groove! The album has a wonderful smooth soul vibe all the way through – and starts with the classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
War delivers the word, and a whole lot more as well – that amazing blend of styles that always made the group way more than just the sum of its parts! The classic groove is very firmly in place here – a great style that mixes jazz funk with a freer jamming style borrowed from Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hmmm. . . When's this stuff from? It appears to be the late 60s – at least from the sound, which is hard and funky in the best parts. The two best tracks are instrumentals – "Thinking Black", which has a muddled up drum and horn sound that's very nice, and "Funky ... LP, Vinyl record album
An album that's got a richer soul feel than some of Sylvia St James' previous work – and a record that really has the singer coming into her own, with a setting that's out to rival the bigger mainstream soul divas of the time! Richard Evans and McKinley Jackson handle the arrangements – ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Lenny's first solo records – rawer than later work, thanks probably to the fact that he produced the record with Chester Thompson. Thompson plays organ and arp on the record, and gives many tracks a nice heavy funk sound that's similar to his and Williams' work in Tower of Power. ... LP, Vinyl record album
