LP, Vinyl record album

(€10.61 || £9.15 || ¥1325) (approx.)

Compilation of tracks produced by Sly & Robbie just as they were getting the Taxi gang started and stepping out as producers in their own right, at the dawn of the Dancehall era. The rhythm tracks are top notc –, and in a lot of ways, this is our favorite period for these 2 reggae greats. They've gathered some amazing vocalists together, including Gregory Isaacs, Junior Delgado, the Wailing Souls & Dennis Brown. 12 tracks in all, including the Tamlins version of "Smiling Faces Sometimes", Dennis Brown "Sitting 7 Watching", Sly's "Hot Your Hot", Wailing Souls "Old Broom" Gregory Isaacs "Oh What A Feeling" & Jr. Delgado's "Merry Go Round". (Cover has edge wear, bent corners, an unglued bottom seam, and some stuck-on paper at the bottom.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.
