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.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
Not the famous "Ling Ching Tong" tune of doo wop fame, but a new track by Joe from his Latin disco years. The track's got a Salsoul type beat, but Joe's sticking to his Latin soul approach with the lyrics – despite the modern sound of the production and backings. Marty Sheller ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Funky dancefloor material from the Isleys – pretty guitar-heavy, and not really their best moment, as the soul quotient's a bit low, and they're kind of lost in the grooves. "I Wanna Be" is served up in a disco version, which is really just an extended funker. 12-inch, Vinyl record
"Don't Make Me Over" was an instant classic the day it was written by Burt Bacharach way back in the 60s – but Sybil's version from 1989 has always been one of our favorites, picking up on the natural syncopation of the song to that great Soul II Soul Nu Groove that was her ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Patrick Adams really helps give Skipworth & Turner a groove on this one – a groove that's tight, midtempo, and stepping in a warm flourish of keyboards and beats! The cut's got a great hook that keeps on going long after the tune stops – and although it's somewhat of a pop number, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
An incredible single from Tavares – mellow-stepping club work, served up in some amazingly warm production from Bobby Martin – with a laidback Philly groove that brings out some wonderful harmonies from the group! The tune's incredibly catchy, and even the instrumental is great – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
The cut here is the amazing "ChanceSellor", with hi-energy vocals from Freddie Foxx and production from Pete Rock, who delivers harder than usual, but dope as ever production, and besides, it's 12" only – not on the LP or CD. A-side is produced by Premier. 12-inch, Vinyl record
