A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface,
and will most likely play with surface noise throughout.
May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.
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.
A great little soul track – and the record that put George Clinton on the map! "Testify" is a landmark cut – with a great rolling soul sound that takes up the heavy production style of Detroit, and points it towards the psychedelic future of the Mothership. The flipside's a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two of the greatest songs ever from the Incredible Bongo Band – brought together here in a special limited edition picture sleeve! "Bongo Rock" is a killer – a tune with a massive break that's been sampled countless times, and which has this amazing percussion part in the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

The flip's nice, though, and features a very tasty spokey bluesy kind of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 killer 60s instrumentals! "Shhhhh" is nothing quiet at all – and the track's a stormer with heavy drums, wailing organ, and some nice grunts and groans from James in the background! "Here I Go" is a groover, too – and one with a very unusual piano in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record
We never tire of the Intruders – and a single like this is the reason why! "I'm Girl Scoutin" is great stuff in their classic mode – with kind of a silly theme, but solid soul vocals that totally put the whole thing over without a flaw! "Wonder What Kind" is great, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A stone classic from Tyrone – and one of the best Chicago soul singles of the late 60s! "Can I Change My Mind" has a vamping, romping groove that's every bit the Brunswick sound at its best – topped with incredible vocals by Tyrone, on a lyric that practically hearalds a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
