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.
Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play,
but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic,
with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a
cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner
and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay,
though probably with surface noise.
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.
A nice disco-ish number off the Jacksons' Destiny LP, and though it's not really a skating jam, we do recall this one getting played at the roller rink quite a bit, and this version of the track has a nice breakdown in the middle too. The b-side's a nice midtempo groover. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Early work from Trouble Funk – so early, they're listed as "Trouble" on the label! The track's still funky though – and it's one of their best from the early days, with a good hard straight funk groove that's free of a lot of the cliches of later Go-Go work. Plenty of great ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A nice jazzy groover from Roy – lifted off his Uno Melodic LP, and offered here in long and short versions! The track's kind of up there with some of Roy's nice dancefloor tracks from the late 70s on Polydor – and it's one of the few 12" singles you'll ever find by him! 12-inch, Vinyl record
A great single – not really for the long mix of "Let's Go Crazy", but for the excellent long funk cut "Erotic City". The track grooves for over 7 minutes – and if you were to ask us the one Prince tune we remember most fondly from the 80s dancefloor, this would be ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A great track from Roy Ayers – and one that's often overlooked! The cut's a smooth mellow stepper, with a nice jazzy vibe, and a wonderful monologue from Roy at the beginning (he's trying to pick up a girl). The cut got kind of buried on the Love Fantasy LP – so it's extra nice to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Smoldering mid 70s grooves from The Meters! Fire On The Bayou is record that shows them focusing a bit more on the soulful vocals and songcraft in a way that reminds us a bit of The Neville Brothers, but still a darn good batch of New Orleans funk! Allen Toussaint produced, and the group has a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
