Hard Again

LP (Item 526961) Blue Sky, 1977 — Condition: Very Good+
Produced by Johnny Winter – with cuts that include "The Blues Had A Baby & They Named It Rock & Roll", "Little Girl", "Deep Down In Florida", "Jealous Hearted Man", and "Mannish Boy".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and is lightly bent at the top right corner.)

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.

Not the Bay Area effort you might guess from the title – and instead a sweet Chicago session that's easily one of the funkiest records that Buddy Guy ever cut!

Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group!
