(Plays with some crackling. Label has a drillhole.)
Good + (plus)
Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw,
such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-,
or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount,
and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has
been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing.
Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.
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.
2 nice tracks by this oft-overlooked east coast harmony group. "Don't Send" has a large production feel, with arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux, and a sound that almost hits the Spinners groove from the same time. "Don't Let Me Be" has great harmonies, and a solid soul sound that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Great small combo work by Roberta Flack, recorded early in her career, when she was still one of the hippest things around – and it's among her best records! Roberta's really come into her own as vocalist at this point and solidifying here personal style – with that clear tone and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stompin organ work from the great Baby Cortez! "Fiddle Sticks" is a lot harder than Dave's earlier hits – with some really searing Hammond, and a tone that almost sets your platter on fire! There's lots of raspy guitar backing him up – kind of chugging in an R&Bish mode! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great little soul track – and the record that put George Clinton on the map! "Testify" is a landmark cut – with a great rolling soul sound that takes up the heavy production style of Detroit, and points it towards the psychedelic future of the Mothership. The flipside's a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Very nice! "Memory Lane" is one of Minnie's last tracks ever – and it's got a super hook, really nice production, and vocals that always send us over the edge. Minnie's in perfect form here, and the track's a great blending of the floating style of her early recordings with the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great groover from this hard Chisoul duo! "Gotta Get Over The Hump" is one of those cuts that seems to be just a groovy soul number – but it's also got a deep message in there somewhere, brought out by the group's full-on vocal approach! Flipside is nice, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
