Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

20th Century, 1977. Near Mint-
A funky funky thumper from Barry White – and one of his last truly genius tracks! "Ecstasy" is presented here in a long long version that lets the tune's initial bass and drum interplay stretch out magnificently – sliding and slinking along in a classic White-styled groove, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Trax, 1986. Good+
If you ask us, this is Larry Heard's finest moment, combining the raw energy of early Chicago house with a jazzy sensibility, warm tones on the keyboards and a spare approach that gives all the elements room to breath. A modern classic! 12-inch, Vinyl record
KMS, 1987. Good+
A rare early track from Kevin Reese Saunderson, before he dropped the "T" and started producing and releasing tracks as Inner City (or perhaps a misspelling on the part of the label). The 3 tracks were all done in collaboration with Mayday, but have the more souldful approach that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1984. Very Good- (pic cover)
One of Prince's biggest tunes ever – and a track that still sounds surprisingly great to our ears these days – funky, chunky, and completely catchy – with a hook that shouldn't go over so well, but really sends the tune home time and time again! 12-inch, Vinyl record

War/Lonnie Jordan

Galaxy/Junkie To My Music
MCA, 1979. Very Good
A split single from War, and lead singer Lonnie Jordan. "Galaxy" is a later funky classic by the group – strutting out with some sweet funky riffing, ensemble vocals, and a powerful groove that's always been a dancefloor pleaser! "Junkie To My Music" has a syncopated ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Epic, 1989. Very Good-
The deep style of the Chicago mix sound of the 80s goes mainstream in this great little 12" of tracks from Lil Louis! "I Called U" is the sort of number that we used to hear endlessly on house mix stations back in the day – with a throbbing spare bassy groove, and very strange ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Dance Mania, 1988. Good+
Early, early work from Lil Louis – super raw too, in the way the best independent Chicago house singles were at the beginning. 12-inch, Vinyl record
25 West, 1982. Good+
A wicked groover from Klein & MBO – bubbling over with the sweet electro touches we love in their work! The track's a percolated drum machine riffer – with whispered breathy vocals over the beats, and electric keys that come in nicely and take the tune over. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Transmat, Late 80s. Good+
