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.
Produced, written, and arranged by James Mason – and one of a few singles that he cut under the group Wuf Ticket, after recording some sublime jazz funk material on his own. This one's got an early 80s electro feel – with lots of keyboards and linn drum riffing. 12-inch, Vinyl record
2 of Jean Carn's best tracks for Philly! Both cuts show Jean at her soulful best – with the kind of perfectly sensitive backing that Philly International gave her, which mixed jazz and soul, augmented with a nice clubby groove to keep things pumping. The single's a must-have for fans of ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of Arthur Baker's shining moments – a poppy little tune, to be sure, but with a tight electro groove that's stood up a lot more than we would have thought at the time! Not strictly Hip Hop, but definitely an '80's breakin'/electro/dance classic (like the tracks on the Tommy Boy Perfect ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
An obscure disco single recorded by Chicago-based Spyyce – a group that features jazz singer Joyce Hurley alongside dual lead vocalist Shara Martin. "My Baby Loves Lovin" is a remake of the classic pop hit – done in a jazzy disco style that has lots of piano on the groove ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A split single from War, and lead singer Lonnie Jordan. "Galaxy" is a later funky classic by the group – strutting out with some sweet funky riffing, ensemble vocals, and a powerful groove that's always been a dancefloor pleaser! "Junkie To My Music" has a syncopated ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A great but overlooked bit of crossover funk from Chas Jankel – guitarist for Ian Dury & The Blockheads during the late 70s! The real standout here is the original version of "Ai No Corrida" – a track probably best remembered from Quincy Jones' Dude album, but sounding ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A great later groover from Thelma Houston – reinventing herself nicely here with some help from Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis! The groove's right in the early best sound from the pair – catchy, but never cloying – and a great change from Thelma's earlier work. 12-inch, Vinyl record
"Alright" gets the classic Todd Terry bump, while D Zire and Drumhead dub the track out nicely at a more moderate tempo, with just the right touch of space dust and a fat, fat bottom. 12-inch, Vinyl record
