Motown Disc O Tech 3

LP (Item 434046) Motown, 1975 — Condition: Very Good

Third volume in this series of collections of Motown material pulled together in the mid 70s featuring some their finest tracks with a heavy dancefloor vibe. Not exactly disco, but solid all the way through, with 9 numbers in all, including "Slippery When Wet" by the Commodores, "Don't Knock My Love" by Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye, "Keep On Truckin'" by Eddie Kendricks, "Forever Came Today" by the Jackson 5, "Glasshouse" by the Temptations, "Love Power" by Willie Hutch, "Where Do I Go From Here" by the Supremes, "Virgin Man" by Smokey Robinson, and "Do It Baby" by the Miracles.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has ring and edge wear with a sticker in the top right, staining and some seam splitting.)

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.
