(€4.66 || £3.99 || ¥560) (approx.)

It's the mid 80s, but this later Kurtis Blow LP still has a couple of all right cuts, like "If I Ruled The World", "Super Sperm" and "AJ Meets Davy DMX", plus 8 more, including "Summertime Groove", "AJ Is Cool" and 'Respect To The King". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

MCA, 2000. Near Mint- 2LP
Second LP from the best MC of the second generation of the Wu Tang family, or at least the most cerebral. This album surprised us, with more energy in the production and vocals than his previous LP, and really a sound that's hardly in the Wu camp at all – as the title suggests, there's lots ...

BMG/RCA, 1988. Very Good
Too Short's follow up to Born To Mack, with the same raw, stripped down Bay Area vibe. It's too bad that gangsta, pimp and street rhymes have gone on to become such a cliche, but when we hear these early classics, we're reminded of how fresh this stuff was at the time. Still sounds great today, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bad Boy, 1997. Near Mint- 3LP
Biggie's second LP, and while the production on some of the tracks features a fair bit of Puff Daddy's gloss, they'll still get your head nodding along to Biggie's incomparable flow. It was definitely hard to follow up Ready To Die, but the best cuts here manage to live up to the promise of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

While the other standouts of the class of '95 like Nas, Jay Z and AZ drifted towards the Escobar/Gambino/Cristal style, Mobb Deep avoided that trend in this tight follow-up to their legendary Infamous debut!
