Skyyport

LP (Item 47763) Salsoul, 1980 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


The Skyy posse is at it again – crafting that ensemble funk groove that was the group's trademark sound at the time, pushing things to the top in a blend of disco, 80s groove, and bass-heavy funk. The silly costumes are still in place – and the 8 member group's pretty darn tight on the instrumental tip. Titles include "Here's To You", "Superlove", "My Sun Won't Shine", "For The First Time", and "Arrival". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

King, 1970. Very Good-
A killer from James Brown – and one of his best instrumental albums of the King years!

The guitar's popping on the beat here as much as the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Choice Four
RCA, 1975. Very Good
One of the greatest albums by this sweet east coast vocal group – also known to folks as the Golden Apples album, because of the crate full of gold-covered apples on the cover.

Seminal work from one of the 70s greatest groups!
