This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
Killer funky cuts, back to back! "Glide" is an upbeat dancefloor tune that was one of the group's most popular numbers, backed here with another uptempo groover that's got lots of wah wah guitar moving really fast, and slick flanged-up vocals that groove in the band's best late mode. 12-inch, Vinyl record
The title track to Diana Ross' classic album with Ashford & Simpson – served up here in a special disco mix! The single's backed by a track produced by Hal Davis, lifted from the Thank God It's Friday soundtrack. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of the best tracks ever by First Choice! "Let No Man" is a sweeping anthemic club track – with a righteous lyric about love and losing it, and some killer production by the Baker-Harris-Young team that really gives the girls a great soulful groove! The Frankie Knuckles mix has ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of the most sublime tracks ever recorded by Al Green – and quite possibly THE Al Green tune to most of the world! It's hard to mess with the genius of "Love & Happiness" – from the slow-burning intro, to the punctuated rhythms of the tune, to Al's wonderfully flowing ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A classic electro cover of Gil Scott-Heron's big hit! There have been many versions of Gil's classic over the years, and this one is proof that the New York dancefloors were still grooving to the song, even after playing out versions by Gil, Brother To Brother, and Joe Bataan. There's a heck of a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A real disco-drama classic from Loleatta – one that begins with a solo vocal passage, stating the story in a stark, lonely setting – then rolls into a burning, building groove that really soars with full clubby power! "That's What You Said" is pretty great too – a bit ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
