House Rocker

LP (Item 52499) Epic, 1986 — Condition: Very Good+

Lovebug Starski is one of the early old-school pioneers– from the prehistoric days when hip hop was live shows, before there were any hip hop records. "House Rocker", his 'comeback' record was an underground hit and is probably his best performance on wax, with a good old school solo MC style, crowd participation and scratching. 7 tracks in all including the title track, "Positive Life", "Amityville", "Saturday Night", and "Eighth Wonder".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small sticker and promo stamp.)

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.
