Long Time Coming

LP (Item 505910) MCA, 1986 — Condition: Near Mint-
The super-catchy second album from Ready For The World – a group who managed to take an older falsetto soul style from the 70s, and refit things nicely for a more electro-styled 80s groove! The group really make great use of the sorts of beats and keyboards that were bubbling under in the street soul world a few years before – and work the elements in all the best ways to kick up the groove and really push the tunes over the top! Titles include "Love You Down", "Mary Goes Round", "Some People Don't Care", "In My Room", "So In Love", and "Baby Let Me Love You".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
