Running Thangs

LP (Item 4709) MCA, 1988 — Condition: Very Good
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

One of those album's you have to love – not only because it's extra dope, but because it's a slept on gem by one of hip hop's pioneers – one that keeps it real in a sense that seems lost so many years down the line! Raw beats and ultimately fairly simple, but charismatic rhymes that just seems to dovetail well in a very satisfying way. Produced by Jazzy Jay and engineered by Skeff Anselm. 10 tracks in all, including "Running Thangs", "Suicide", "Murder", "Converse", "Get Busy", "Don't Play", "Kickin' Flavor", "Express", "Old School" and the nice DJ cut "Jazzy On The Mix".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a promo stamp, a faded name in marker, and some flaking on one corner.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.

Mercury, 1984. Near Mint-
Outside of his early singles, this LP features some of our favorite Kurtis Blow tracks. The production is similar to that big beat Linn Drum/DMX style that the 1983-85 Profile artists used. With "8 Million Stories" – featuring Run-DMC, "AJ Scratch"– featuring the ... LP, Vinyl record album

War

War Live!
United Artists, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
War live, a perfect step forward – especially given that the group had already been so jamming on all their previous work in the studio!

Ramsey Lewis

Movie Album
Cadet, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Jazzy and classy – and one of the first of Ramsey's albums to feature him working with larger arrangements instead of the usual trio. In this case, the whole thing was arranged and conducted by Richard Evans – with a spacey hip sound that's not too far from some of Ramsey's later work ... LP, Vinyl record album
