Take It Personal (voc, inst)/DWYCK (mix #1, mix #1 inst, horny inst)

12-inch (Item 5144) Chrysalis, 1992 — Condition: Good+
(pic cover)
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record

From the Daily Operation LP. "DWYCK", featuring Nice & Smooth, is one of our favorite Gang Starr cuts, probably because Nice & Smooth lighten up the normally serious Guru.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover has heavy edge wear, bent corners, light stains, and some pen.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Rain Forest/Sound Chaser
Profile, 1984. Near Mint-
Two classic electro-jazz instrumental tracks with vocoder. "Rain Forest" bridges the gap between breaking electro beats and radio friendly smooth jazz, "Sound Chaser" has a nice, slow tempo electro feel. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tommy Boy, 1991. Near Mint-
Single from RZA in his early days as Prince Rakeem, before any Wu-Tang releases, but with a nod to the future in the titles. It's sounds surprisingly nice in this day and age. RZA's delivery is loud, measured and clear – like a lot of late 80s, early 90s MC's. The beats are straight up, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Streetwise, 1984. Near Mint- (pic cover)
One of our favorite tunes from the old school – a beautiful blend of vocoder vocals, sinister keyboards, and some cool splashy beats!
