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.

Pretty straight club tracks – recorded with a style that reminds us of some of the European groups coming out of Germany and France at the time, and with some electronic touches that show a vague hint of Giorgio Moroder.

Think what you want – we think this is a damn great soul album!

One of the greatest crossover albums of the 80s – and the record that catapulted Prince very firmly into the mainstream!

Here's the side of 70s Isleys that we like the best – the mellow side!
