then checkout as usual.
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.

Like all of DJ's RCA LPs, this one's a very nice batch of smooth mellow soul, with tight arrangments that have DJ on electric piano and other keyboards, and singing in his beautiful rich voice. Titles include "Love Is All I Need", "Saved By Love", "Love Is On The Way" ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great 80s groove from Thelma Houston – a set with arrangements that are leaner and meaner than before, still topped with those amazing soul diva vocals! Arrangements on the set are handled by George Tobin & Mike Piccirillo – who really give the album a nice sort of focus – ... LP, Vinyl record album
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A posthumous collection of material that Sam recorded for RCA before his untimely death – not really a greatest hits collection, but a lot better than the usual "house cleaning" type of record that gets issued in this sort of situation. 11 tracks in all, including "Blowin' In ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great UK pressing of these late 70s groovers from the US! Titles include full length 12" versions of "Such A Feeling" by Aurra, "I Am Somebody" by Glenn Jones, "Ooh, I Love it" by Salsoul Orchestra, "Get On Up" by Jazzy Dee, "Beverly" by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Released shortly after Sam's death, this is a beautiful batch of ballad tracks to remember how sweet his voice was. The production's a bit pop, but Sam's singing is as heavenly as ever. Titles include "When A Boy Falls In Love", "Try A Little Love", "Bridge Of Tears" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very very very groovy mix of soulful instrumentation and cool RCA production. Johnny Griffith lays down some cool piano lines set amidst a wave of groovy strings and rhythm, and grooves come crashing in and echo away as the next one falls into line. The monster cut is "Love is Just a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sublime work by a singer who should have dominated the 60s – had he not left this planet in an auto accident early in his short career! Jesse is wonderful here – getting even more coolness and class on RCA than he did in an indie setting – with help from the groups of Shorty ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great step into the 80s for The Pointer Sisters – a record that has them bringing in themes that are a bit more soulful than some of their previous efforts! The album's still got all the big crossover potential of their other hits – but the groove's got a solidly soulful vibe overall ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little sleeper from the Blackbyrds – a record that never gets as much due as their earlier records that have a hard funky feel, but offer instead a tasty batch of smoother jazz funk numbers that show the group still continuing to grow. Donald Byrd's still at the production helm ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jeffrey Osborne's really emerging strongly here in the mellow soul mode – especially on the album's two great ballad cuts, "Concentrate On You" and "We Both Deserve Each Other", both of which are smooth mellow steppers with a modern soul approach that's slightly less ... LP, Vinyl record album
