Early genius from Pigmeat Markham – a classic performance at the Apollo Theater, recorded by Chess in a style that would set the tone for countless imitations to come! The cover has kind of a "sad clown" sort of look, but Pigmeat's in full force on a series of routines that include "Go Ahead & Sing", "Restaurant Scene", "Hello Bill", "Ritz Service", and "Frisco Kate". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Love Fantasy
Polydor, 1980. Near Mint-
One of our favorite Roy Ayers albums of all time – and an overlooked gem from Roy's late 70s years at Polydor! This set's a bit more laidback and less clubby than some other Ayers work of the period – which means it's got this wonderful jazzy groove throughout – a sweet mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maybe Tomorrow
Motown, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great early album by the Jacksons – with a monster batch of cuts arranged by Gene Page and The Corporation, all put together with a soulful groove that the group definitely lost on later albums!
