This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
One of a great run of grooves from the legendary team of bassist Eldee Young and drummer Redd Holt – a smoking batch of instrumentals done in the best Chicago soul style of the time! Young and Holt got their start in the early trio of Ramsey Lewis – but here, they've fully expanded to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jackie Wilson takes over the Copa – bringing his early soul styles to the New York elite – but a few years before The Supremes and other Motown artists got their chance! The album's got Wilson acting with great poise and grace, but still losing none of his vocal power at all – ... LP, Vinyl record album
You certainly ain't heard nothin, not until you hear this very strangely conceived set of Jackie doing a tribute to Al Jolson! We could condemn this, but we actually find it pretty fascinating, as it confirms the strange black following that Jolson had, even though you would've expected him to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dreamy work from Jackie – who's singing here over arrangements by Dick Jacobs that have a sweetly swaying romantic feel to them. There's still plenty of room for Jackie's great vocals to dip, turn, leap, and soar – and the album has him working in a dramatic mode that's quite striking, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really wonderful collaboration between two very unlikely partners – and a great album that really stands out as some of the best work from both artists in the 60s! Count Basie's group gets hard and soulful on the record – and even a little funky on the best cuts – and Jackie ... LP, Vinyl record album
A mixed bag of an album from Jackie – a record that features tracks handled in a number of modes, from late 60s Chisoul, to others that are in a ballad or standard style. Arrangers include Johnny Pate, Willie Henderson, Sonny Sanders, and Dick Jacobs – and tracks include "We Have ... LP, Vinyl record album
A lost set of female soul tracks – recorded in the waning years of the Brunswick label, when they were really experimenting with some great obscure groups, most of whom got lost in the tax shuffles of the label's demise! Odyssey 5 hail from North Carolina, and they've got an ensemble female ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great collection that's heavy on tracks that Jackie Wilson recorded in the Chicago studios during that city's big boom of the late 60s – titles that include "I Can Feel Those Vibrations", "Soul Galore", "I'm The One To Do It", "I Get The Sweetest ... LP, Vinyl record album
Written by Michael Jackson & Lionel Richie, with Quincy Jones producing! Includes the all-star title track plus selections by Chicago, Huey Lewis & The News, Steve Perry, The Pointer Sisters, Prince & The Revolution, Kenny Rogers, Bruce Springsteen, and Tina Turner. LP, Vinyl record album
The pleasure principle is in full effect here – a really special sort of feeling that strongly shows off the female side of the Parliament/Funkadelic mothership! The album's got a groove that's way different than most female disco of the time – more offbeat and angular, thanks to funky ... LP, Vinyl record album
A tremendous set from Luther Ingram – proof that the singer had way more to offer than just his famous southern soul singles! The record's got a really deep feel from the start – kind of a slow-burning sound that moves way past easy soul music styles, and offers up Ingram as one of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
