This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor 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.
Both cuts are nice – still quite P-Funky, with a midtempo groove that recalls the best of late Funkadelic, with the Parlet ladies up front in the mix vocally, but the rest of the P-Funk crew doing their job as always! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Early 80s slap bass funk – of the sort that was showing up on the Liberty label at the time, and which here comes across pretty well. The best cut is "Love Is On The One", which has a catchy sing-song groove, and a very nice hook. Both tracks from the Point of Pleasure LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record
A sweet sweet groove from Odyssey – tripping along in a snapping 80s beat supported by some "wheeet" keyboard work! The hook is very tasty – sung along by the group with a really nice little swing that makes the tune more playfully soulful than you'd guess at first! "Lov ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
This early import 12" single presents the tune in all its 4 part glory – complete with lots of production twists and turns from Trevor Horn, as well as impeccable string arrangements from Anne Dudley! 12-inch, Vinyl record
A pretty great number from Bernard Wright – much smoother and more R&B than some of his work on GRP/Arista, but a great track with a wonderful 80s groove hook! The vocals are surprisingly nice, augmented by a female singer on the chorus – and the tune's still got some nice jazzy ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sublime mellow soul from Johnny Bristol! "Do It To My Mind" is a warm and wonderful number – one that begins with a smooth intro that mixes strings and rhythm, which then rolls into an incredibly catchy vocal – one of Johnny's best on record, and right up there with our ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Although Oneness Of Juju are best known around here for their avant funky spiritual jazz albums from the mid 70's, they're really best known in clubland for the a-side of this single, "Every Way But Loose". The track still retains some of their afro jazz elements, but it's got a heavy ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
