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.

Tribe

Ethnic Stew
ABC, 1974. Sealed
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

Impressions

Versatile Impressions
ABC, 1969. Sealed
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
ABC, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2 LP set that brings together some of the best material from The Impressions' classic 60's sides of Chicago soul, recorded for ABC. The original LPs are pretty darn tough to find, and this set's got a lot of nice tracks that go way past the usual hits. Titles include "We're A ... LP, Vinyl record album

Street Corner Symphony

Little Funk Machine
ABC, 1976. Sealed
A very cool update of older vocal group modes – taken into sublime 70s territory with arrangements and production from Willie Hutch! Street Corner Symphony were part of the 70s doo wop revival movement – but unlike some of their acapella contemporaries, they were always happy to let in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Man & His Soul
ABC, Late 50s/1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1962. Near Mint-
The second installment of one of Ray's greatest albums – and a landmark in the genre of country soul! As the title implies, Ray's singing a host of tunes best known from the country side of the spectrum – but he's working here with arrangements by LA jazzers Marty Paich and Gerald ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lloyd Price

Exciting Lloyd Price
ABC, Late 50s. Very Good+
Monumental soul from Lloyd Price – a great mainstream take on the growing sound of the New Orleans scene, served up with incredible power! The album's a real testament to Lloyd's genius – as nearly all the tracks on the set are originals, done in that Price-styled mix of hard R&B ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus featuring Chaka Khan

Rufusized
ABC, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Funk, soul, jazz, and plenty more – all wrapped up into this 70s masterpiece from Rufus – the kind of record that not only never gets old, but which still has folks wondering how the group could have gotten things this perfect all these many years later! Chaka Khan and the group are in ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1969/1976. Near Mint-
A selection of tracks culled from the days when War were working with Eric Burdon – during the years 1969 and 1970, when the ex-Animal tried to show the world that he actually had some real soul cred, and hooked up with this hip funky combo from LA to lay down his groove. The tracks are very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Cooley/Winfield Scott/Otis Blackwell/Ollie Jones/Lincoln Chase/Billy Dawn Smith

We Wrote Em & We Sing Em
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Quite an unusual concept – one that really goes against record company policy of the time! Original writers of big rock and pop hits are given the chance to sing them here on their own – with Eddie Cooley singing "Fever", "Winfield Scott" sings "Tweedle ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam & Dave

Back At Cha
United Artists, 1975. Near Mint-
A rare late LP Sam & Dave cut for United Artists in the mid 70s – with raw & gritty soul vocals and rough hewn, yet soulfully resonant production by Steve Cropper, and backing by a slew of Memphis sessions specialists! Back At Cha is a coulda-shoulda-woulda been great comeback effort ... LP, Vinyl record album
