I Loves You Porgy/Love Me Or Leave Me

7-inch (Item 451032) Bethlehem, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+
(Red label pressing with 'Jazz Classic' on label.)

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.

Different Bag, 1976. Near Mint-
Nice lost one! "Track Down" has a good choppy funk groove, with nice downbeats, weird spacey electronics, and an off-kilter horn finish. "Let's Put It Together" has more of an uptempo groove, with lots of choppy wah wah guitars – and a strong dancefloor groove! Both ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Boo Boo/Spead
Bell, Late 60s. Near Mint-
2 funky instrumentals! "Boo Boo" is a tune that creeps along slowly – bumping at the bottom with a sly bassline, as horns kind of vamp on the top – stepping nicely with a funky groove, and a chorus that features a voice screaming out "Boo Boo!" "Spead" is ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Musicor, 1977. Near Mint-
A surprisingly club-oriented track from Swamp Dogg, and one that an uptempo funky sound, and lively "dancing" lyrics from Swamp. The flipside's a bit more typical stuff, with a mellower sound that's more southern soul oriented. 7-inch, Vinyl record
