Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially

This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Classic funk from one of Chicago's greats! "Dresses" is one of Syl's classics, and it's got a good hard funky soul sound, with a bit of a James Brown twist, but more of Syl's raw west side soul. Good goofy lyrics, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sock boogaloo soul from one of the genre's masters!

Sublime soul from one of the most under-recognized singers of all time! "Bring My Baby Back" is a different tune than the hit of the same name – sung by Jesse in a light, yet soulful vocal style that's really tremendous. "Thank You Darlin" is even greater – coming ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Beautiful Philly harmonies from The Cruisers! "I Need You So" is mellow and moody – and banks the harmonies against some fuller strings directed by Bobby Martin! "Take A Chance" is upbeat and really soaring – electric bass underneath the strings, and vocals ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
