This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
(In an A&M Disco sleeve. Sleeve and labels have some marker.)
Near Mint - (minus)
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor 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.
Either a comeback or a swan song for Eartha – as it was her first big single in years, and maybe her last ever – but whatever the case, the tune was a strong entry in the camp disco category – with a title and theme that would keep this one playing on dancefloors for years! 12-inch, Vinyl record
A nice little funky number from Bobby Rush – still with a bluesy undercurrent, but some smoother Philly touches as well! "Do The Do" is quite different than the usual club you might expect from Philly International at the time – and although produced with a full feel, still ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of the best tracks ever by First Choice! "Let No Man" is a sweeping anthemic club track – with a righteous lyric about love and losing it, and some killer production by the Baker-Harris-Young team that really gives the girls a great soulful groove! This reissue in the Salsoul ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A soulful stormer in the best P&P tradition! Jesse Gould delivers a raw deep soul vocal about being out of work, while Billy Nichols lays down an extremely contagious electric club groove – replete with a haunting keyboard riff, crashing strings, and a triple-time bassline! 12-inch, Vinyl record
