Problems Of The World (Today)/F-4000 (voc, inst)/Fearless Freestyle

12-inch (Item 5819) Elektra, 1983 — Condition: Used
(pic cover)
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


5.00 4

Unlike some other old-school pioneers Fearless Four were able to move to a bigger label without trying to cross over. The best track here is the Fearless Freestyle, a 6 minute track that reminds us of their early hits like "Rockin It" on Enjoy. "F-4000" is a nice electro/breakin track that uses lots of vocoder effects. "Problems of the World" was obviously 'inspired' by Grandmaster Flash's "Message". (White label promo.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Def Jam, 1985. Poor
Craziness! MCA (of the Beasties) and Burzootie go wild in the studio, and make a lot of noise with a drum machine. Not exactly an old school classic, but a goofy (and rare!) bit of early Def Jam in a nice maroon sleeve. 12-inch, Vinyl record
