People (radio, LP, inst)/Game (radio, LP, inst)

12-inch (Item 483672) Geffen, 2007 — Condition: Very Good+
(€3.38 || £2.98 || ¥449) (approx.)

The first single from Common's top shelf Finding Forever LP – a classy full length that marks back-to-back solid efforts for Com, given this equally solid follow up to his perceived "comeback" BE of 2005! The forthright "People" brings out the best in Kanye West's production. As for Common, he repeats strong verses like mantras, with thick, bottom heavy beats, and a jazz funk sample backdrop. "Game" is the walloping DJ Premier style combat track – with beats by Kanye and scratches by Primo himself. We're always champions of our Chi heroes – but Common's best tracks are transcendent – and we just can't praise those enough. (In a stickered sleeve. Labels have some marker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.
