Originally: 24.99

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.

Lo Ultimo
Embajador, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Nice album of classic Latin tracks, and one that offers a mix of material from Charlie Palmieri, Emilio Reyes, and La Playa Sextet. Despite the obvious thrown together nature of the release, the material's all quite strong, and lots of hit has a very hard, very percussive sound. Charlie and his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Everybody Loves A Lover
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A simple formula, but one of Shirley's best records from the mid 60s, and a tight batch of quartet tracks that also features Stanley Turrentine on tenor. The title cut's a classic jazz stepper in Chicago, with a subtly loping groove that works pretty darn well. Other tracks include "Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kitty & The Haywoods

Love Shock
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+
Nice lost bit of Chicago female soul, produced by the Ohio Players, and with a sound that sounds a lot like their Mercury albums of the time – that is, with some hard slap-bass funk on most cuts, and some slower spacier sounds on others. Includes one of our fave tracks these days, the spacey ... LP, Vinyl record album
