Somethings They Never Change (club, radio, Razz mix, dub train)

12-inch (Item 552726) Hot Mix 5, 1988 — Condition: Very Good

(Label has some marker.)

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.

MCA/Uptown, 1988. Very Good+ (pic cover)
The sound of new jack writ large – as Teddy Riley takes the main stage with the heavily-produced "Teddy's Jam". The cut has plenty of popping beats – but the extended version is perhaps a bit too long. Stick to the club version, which has a smoother sound – or "Ted ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, 1982. Very Good+
A great little groover on Brunswick – with that kind of choppy club funk feel that you'll also find on some of the label's other obscure 12" singles, like the classic "You Are The One", by AMFM. The track's got a very nice groove – and the hook's enough to keep the track ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Columbia, 1988. Very Good+ (pic cover)
One of Coldcut's first big hits – with Yazz on some firey lead vocals! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1983. Very Good+
A poppy classic from early 80s Motown – one of those cuts you just couldn't get away from at the time! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Salsoul, 1979. Very Good
One of the less-remembered Salsoul singles from the late 70s – probably for good reason! The record features disco versions of 2 country standards – rolling out with pretty thin lead vocals from Robin Hooker, and falling a bit short of the usual Salsoul groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1978. Very Good+
Easily one of the Doobies' biggest pop moments of the 70s – presented here in a promo-only single with a special "disco mix" that really just seems to improve the sonic quality of the tune, and not change up the overall song at all. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Silver Spur, 1982. Very Good+
From the Delfonics. 12-inch, Vinyl record
TSR (Germany), 1986. Very Good (pic cover)

PMP/Loud, 1997. Very Good+
A lost bit of excellent contemporary soul music. We loved this album so much when it came out, and have never figured out why it fell through the cracks, perhaps because the record labels then weren't fully behind the now huge neo classic soul movement. A nice slower number and a more midtempo ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Headphoniq, 2017. Near Mint-
Four tracks on this killer cut from Ron Trent – a groove so tight, it might better be called "thumpin" instead of "dancin"! The basslines pound plenty hard on the Ed Nine remix – and the keys just start to swell in the middle – whereas on the Jordan Fields mix ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
