Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.

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.

RCA, 1968. Very Good+
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
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
An overlooked late 70s moment from the great Garland Green – a set that's quite different than his earlier Chicago soul – thanks to production from Leon Haywood in a sweet west coast mode! The record's got an easygoing vibe that really fits the cover – a mix of mellow and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Souled
RCA, 1969. Very Good
Jose Feliciano really lives up to the title here – stepping out strongly with the same style used on his "California Dreamin" hit – a massive blend of strings, soul, and Jose's unique vocal approach! Feliciano came out of the Latin market in the 60s, but by the time of this ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1959. Good
Early early early work by The Isley Brothers – an album built around their huge rock and roll hit "Shout" – one of those numbers you've heard a million times, in a million versions, and which you've probably forgotten came from the first trio of Isleys way back before they ... LP, Vinyl record album
On Top Of Clear
RCA, 1976. Very Good+
Maybe the best of their mid 70s records for RCA, in a similar style tp a lot of other East Coast groups from the time who had bigger hits and more mainstream popularity, even if few of their peers were truly as wonderful as the mighty Choice Four! On Top Of Clear is a close to perfect mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tymes Up
RCA, 1976. Sealed
A really great album from the revived 70s version of The Tymes – a group who draw on a long legacy of harmonies in Philly soul, and who work here in a setting that really brings out their best! The whole record was produced and directed by Billy Jackson – and it's got a Philly/New York ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1974. Very Good+
Hard funky soul from The New Birth – still sounding pretty raw at this point, and with that funky group ensemble feel that you'll hear on their best early albums! The tracks have plenty of nice guitar and clavinet work, and a shifting lead vocal approach that's pretty great on most cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album
Zulema (RCA)
RCA, 1975. Very Good+
Her first LP for RCA, and a batch of soul tracks with a pop soul feel, like some of the other stuff on the label at the time. Zulema arranged all the cuts, and she plays electric piano on the LP. Tracks include "Standing In The Back Row Of Your Heart", "Wanna Be Where You Are" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Here 'Tis
RCA, 1972. Very Good+
A tremendous little record from Love Peace & Happiness – a great vocal trio from the early 70s, and one who really shine with this overlooked gem for RCA! The trio were part of the New Birth/Nite Liters universe that producer Harvey Fuqua brought to the label at the time – and they' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Get On Your Mark
RCA, Early 80s. Near Mint-
A sweet bit of electro soul from the 80s – served up here by a trio who are heavy on keyboard sounds, but also get some warmer elements from an array of other musicians who help out on the set! The tunes have a nicely punched-up vibe – catchy 80s soul, but without any too commercial ... LP, Vinyl record album
Smooth Talk (2nd pressing)
RCA, 1977. Very Good+
Wonderfully smooth soul from Evelyn Champagne King – one of her real standouts from the early days, and a tremendous collaboration with producer/arranger T Life! The sound here is upbeat and catchy, but never too poppy – done with a slight hint of that groove that King would hit more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Memphis Menu
RCA, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
An excellent album from Jose Feliciano – recorded with a lot of Memphis soul influences, as the title indicates, but still with that beautifullly jazzy style that he was using in his earlier LA recordings. Steve Cropper helped produced and arrange with Jose, and the Memphis Horns back up the ... LP, Vinyl record album
