(Mono pressing. Includes the booklet. A beautiful copy!)
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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
A wonderful chapter in the career of Ray Charles – and a key album in helping raise his respect level a notch or two in the early 60s! We might argue with the mathematics in the title – or at least joke that Ray was using equations as titles years before Anthony Braxton – but you ... LP, Vinyl record album
Denise is shaking off some of the rougher edges of earlier recordings, working here in that modern Detroit style that would show up occasionally on some of these mid 70s ABC soul releases. Arrangements are by David Van DePitte, who gives Denise a smooth soaring sound that pushes her a lot vocally ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweetly smooth grooving from The Dramatics – tighter than their years at Stax, but still tremendous stuff vocally – with a sound that mixes the rough and the sweet like nobody else! The album features works by a number of different producers – including group members Ron Banks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Although not as instantly captivating as their work for Stax, this set for ABC is still a pretty darn great group soul album! The group haven't lost their touch vocally – and Ron Banks and LJ Reynolds are still incredible singers that push smooth soul to a whole new level. The album ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the excellent recordings made by The Dramatics at ABC – great group soul gems that are sometimes overlooked because they didn't yield as many hits as earlier sets – but which are stellar records nonetheless! This one's got all the right elements firmly in place – killer ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic early work from Al Hudson – a record that's kind of a first chapter to all the excellent work by One Way to come – even though Al's not using that group name at this time! The record's got this cool, classy vibe – an update of an earlier Detroit soul mode, and one that ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the few full albums ever cut by The Masqueraders – a stellar vocal group who recorded some excellent singles in the 60s, and were fortunate enough to be pulled into the big time by Isaac Hayes for his Hot Buttered Soul imprint on ABC! The band mixes their smooth Memphis style with ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great bit of funk from this obscure 70s combo – the first of their many good albums, and with a sound that's rougher and rawer than the others. The band's grooving in a pretty slow mode here – without the uptempo club tracks of later years – and they've got a style that's a mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
A well-titled set from the fantastic Impressions – a record that mixes a few of their usual Curtis Mayfield-penned tunes with some other 60s material that really shows the range of the group on vocals! The arrangements are by Johnny Pate, who handled the group's best work of the 60s – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic indeed – as the great Lloyd Price takes on some more familiar tunes with his legendary vocals – working with Sid Feller arrangements on tracks that include "Let's Fall In Love", "Undecided", "What Is This Thing Called Love", and "Mean To ... LP, Vinyl record album
