Keep On Doing What You're Doing

LP (Item 527835) Mercury, 1969 — Condition: Very Good

Recorded in Chicago, with a style that's as messed-up and changed-up as some of the best Cadet/Concept work of the time! With Lafayette Leake on piano and organ, Mighty Joe Young on guitar, and Jimmy Dawkins on lead guitar – and titles include "Gravy Child", "Sweet Love", "It's All Over", "My Baby Done Put Me Down", and "Can You Use A Man".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo, ex-libris copy with Withdrawn stamps and library stickers. Cover has taped seams and a small peeled spot.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

A nice little collection of Bo Diddley's earlier work for Chess – put together in the early 70s, when Bo was in his Black Gladiator phase, as pictured on the cover – but featuring the rawer, rougher grooves of his initial recordings in the late 50s and early 60s!
