Love Letters

LP (Item 4322) Tommy Boy, 1984 — Condition: Very Good-

Sweet electro soul from Force MDs – an early album for Tommy Boy that helped set the scene for a countless imitations to come! The record features a unique blend of older harmony soul (clearly referenced by the old school sweaters on the cover) and (then) current electro production – in a mode that supports the vocals with instrumentation from the Tackhead trio of Keith LeBlanc on drums, Doug Wimbush on bass, and Skip McDonald on guitar! Keyboards slide in and out of most tracks as well – and the tunes themselves shift from hook-heavy pop numbers to some gentler ballads that are often some of the best tunes in the set! Steinski makes a guest appearance on the classic "Itchin For A Scratch", and other tracks include "Tears", "Let's Stay Together", "Be Mine", "Don't Make Me Dance", and "Forgive Me Girl".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.
