LP, Vinyl record album

(€4.19 || £3.67 || ¥556) (approx.)

One of a number of sessions cut by Chicago bluesman Willie Mabon in the 70s – done in at a time when his talents were being re-discovered by a host of younger listeners. The overall style is in the older mode of Willie's classic years – relatively spare, with backing by a Chicago group that includes Little Mack Simmons on harmonica and Mighty Joe Young on guitar. Willie's on piano and vocals, and titles include "Trouble Blues", "I Wonder", "Worry Blues", "Hey Gal", "Thinkin About You", "Going To Get You", and "Hang Loose Baby". (Cover has a mostly split spine.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • 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.
