Ashanti (clean promo version)

LP (Item 451602) Murder Inc, 2002 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP

(Promo in a Murder Inc sleeve.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • 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.

Eric B & Rakim

Paid In Full
4th & Broadway, 1987. Very Good+
Paid In Full, indeed! Eric B & Rakim's seminal debut still pays off in so many ways, and it was such a vital link between the party rockin' style of the old school and the terse, hard-hitting beats and rhymes of the nascent school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise it's due. ...

Polydor, 1984. Very Good+
Sure, maybe Breakin wasn't the most accurate, most faithful portrait of life on the streets in the early 80s – but the film was a great breakout moment for hip hop culture in the mainstream, and also helped sell the new style with a heavy dose of soul!

The best yet from Aachen, Germany's Flofilz – one the most jazz inspired beatmakers on the German hip hop production scene we've heard – really stepping further into on Cenario!

Classic 80's electro funk, with a couple tracks mixed by Jellybean Benitez. Toss on "Space Cowboy", "We Are the Jonzun Crew" or "Pack Jam" and pull out the linoleum, or if you're a low budget b-boy like some of us were back in the day, the flattened-out refrigerator ... LP, Vinyl record album

Last Poets

At Last
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good+
Probably the rarest of all albums by the Last Poets – so rare that it often doesn't show up in lists of their work, and that it's never reissued with the frequency of their other early titles. Jalal is firmly in place by this point, and his hip rhyming poetry has brought a new level of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Minnie Riperton

Adventures In Paradise
Epic, 1975. Very Good+
Maybe our favorite-ever album from Minnie Riperton during the 70s – a sweet, smooth jazzy gem that really makes some of the best use of her vocals! There's a sophistication here that's a great 70s counterpart to Minnie's earlier work with Charles Stepney – served up here in a very ... LP, Vinyl record album
