Tell Me

LP (Item 559874) Daybreak (Netherlands), 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover has a lightly bent corner.)

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.

Inner City, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A unique later session from trombonist Jimmy Knepper – produced as a Japanese-only release in the 70s by saxophonist Lew Tabackin – who's also a key member of the group!

ESP, 1965. Near Mint-
A seminal set from Sun Ra – even if it's one of his few 60s albums not on the Saturn label!

Rotation (original pressing)
Nucleus, 1975. Sealed

Strata East, 1974. Near Mint-
A real early moment of genius from reedman Sonny Fortune – a classic set cut for the Strata East label, and one that's got a lot more depth and edge than some of Fortune's later records! Don't get us wrong, we always love Sonny to death – but there's really something special going on ... LP, Vinyl record album

People's Republic
A&M, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Set of free "out" tracks by this classic 70's loft avant group. Leroy Jenkins, Sirone, and Jerome Cooper mesh together brilliantly, and have honed their style sharply by the time of this A&M release. Gatefold cover, with the tracks "Trio for Trio", "Chinese Rock" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Toots & The Maytals

Funky Kingston (Island version)
Island/Mango, 1971. Very Good
Masterful early 70s reggae from Toots & The Maytals – released first in 1971, and first reissued with this killer tracklist a few years later into the 70s – and flat out classic! The reggae rhythms are steeped in raw soul and R&B for truly distinctive vibe. Breezy Caribbean ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1968. Very Good+
Amazingly spooky stuff from Nico! The album's only Nico's second solo album – after the legendary Chelsea Girls for Verve – but it's got a spark, stark, totally-drained quality that's immediately gripping. John Cale handled production, and he's working here with Nico in a junkie haze ... LP, Vinyl record album

Consider The Source
Polydor, 1976. Very Good+
Sublime jazzy soul from Creative Source – a group who managed to step way way past their early hits with a sound that's even more sophisticated on later albums!
