Joan Armatrading

LP (Item 581886) A&M, 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

(UK pressing.)

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.

Whatever's For Us
Cube (UK), 1972. Very Good
The landmark first album from Joan Armatrading – a singer who's almost a genre unto herself! The album's awash with Joan's early collaborations with songwriter Pam Nestor – pairing hear with Armatrading at a level that's almost like that of Bernie Taupin and Elton John during the same ...

Booker T & Priscilla Jones

Chronicles
A&M, 1973. Near Mint-
Booker T's definitely into a great new groove here – one that really extrapolates his Memphis roots through the haze of early 70s California – coming up with some wonderful sounds along the way! There's a definite A&M vibe to the record – that mix of rootsy modes and hipster ... LP, Vinyl record album

Melvin Van Peebles

Brer Soul
A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Amazing stuff from Melvin Van Peebles! Brer Soul is a mad mix of funky soul insanity and straight up wisdom – a mix of moods that also seems to inform the best of his films, now that we think about it – and it's put together with enough wild clashes of culture to shake anyone up. Funk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brothers Johnson

Look Out For #1
A&M, 1976. Very Good+
An all-star soul affair produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring the talents of studio greats like Harvey Mason, Billy Cobham, Toots Thielmans, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour, and many others – not to mention the Brothers themselves! We'll be honest, though, in saying that we really think it's the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeffrey Osborne

Stay With Me Tonight
A&M, 1983. Near Mint-
A pivotal album for Jeffrey Osborne – and a record that showed the world that he could stand proudly on his own away from his old group LTD! The album was actually his second solo outing, but the first to really gel together in that hit-making blend of ballads and catchy mid-tempo pop tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gino Vannelli

Brother To Brother
A&M, 1978. Very Good Gatefold
A really standout bit of blue-eyed soul from Gino Vannelli – the kind of record that shouldn't be so great, but really holds up well over the years! The style is tight and studio-oriented – somewhere in the mode of Bobby Caldwell and some of Gino's other cross-over contemporaries ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeffrey Osborne

Emotional
A&M, 1986. Sealed
Titles include "We Belong To Love", "Soweto", "You Should Be Mine", "Emotional", "A Second Chance", and "Love's Not Ready". LP, Vinyl record album

Gino Vannelli

Pauper In Paradise
A&M, 1977. Very Good+
By this point in his career, Gino Vannelli was hardly a Pauper In Paradise – and with the perm in his hair, and shaggy rug on his chest, he was every bit the wealthy 70s modern man in his looks! But despite that mismatch, the album's a great one – mainstream pop with a surprising ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic Starr

Radiant
A&M, 1980. Very Good
Radiant grooves indeed from Atlantic Starr – a group who really make things sparkle throughout this magnificent set! The group are at the height of their powers here – skirting a perfect line between mainstream soul and upbeat club – never falling too much into one style or the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Parliament

Motor Booty Affair
Casablanca, 1978. Very Good
The Mothership goes under water – as George Clinton and crew groove away nicely on this water-themed set of tracks designed to raise Atlantis from the deep! The overall sound is perhaps not as totally perfect as some of the earlier records, but the P-Funk machine is still in full effect ... LP, Vinyl record album
