LP (Item 499241) Casablanca, 1979 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

Sweet Canadian club from Alma Faye – a record that shows that the scene up north was just as great for disco as the one down in New York! The record's got these flowing arrangements from Lee Gagnon – an artist who was working in jazz a few years before, but manages to find just the right sort of soulful vibe for Alma's vocals – a bold, warm groove that's just right for the album's Casablanca placement here in the US – although at a level that's maybe even deeper than some of its more commercial releases. Faye's never too over the top, and slides into the groove strongly on most numbers – on titles that include "Gimme Your Love", "Here's To Life", "I Believed", "Thank You", "It's Over", and "Don't Fall In Love". (Cover has a promo stamp and some wear.)  © 1996-2015, 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.
