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.
War is one of those groups that really kept on going greatly, long after folks seem to remember – a group who changed their sound nicely with the times, and never seemed to lose their original sense of soul! This set's light years from their earlier heavy funk, but still wonderful work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feel Good is a tight little set that shows Ike Turner sitting equally on the fence between funk and rock – sometimes kickin into the kind of tightly snapping rhythms heard on his best late 60s work, at other points strutting into more of a guitar-based groove that he was using for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ike and Tina Turner take on a host of gospel classics – but really rework them with their own sort of early 70s energy! Ike re-arranged all the tunes here – and in a way, the album's one of the most inventive from the pair during this time – almost as if the familiar tunes were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Post-Polygram, but still some nice funkiness from this classic 70s group. The record's got much of the feel of their early 70s work – with lots of tasty electric keyboards, soulful percussion, and an always-driving groove. Titles include "Disco Lypso", "Honey Butt", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Definite magic from the legendary Aladdin Records – a hard-hitting collection of 50s R&B – with work by Big T Tyler, Marvin & Johnny, Jimmy Liggins, Sugar & Pee Wee, Thurston Harris, Gene & Eunice, Great Gates, Skinny Dynamo, Fatso & Flaire, Amos Milburn, The ... LP, Vinyl record album
A mixture of smooth LA soul with some deeper tendencies – Lea's second album for United Artists, and very much in the spirit of the first. Titles include "She Will Break Your Heart", "Lost In Your Love", "Chained To This Memory", "You're Gonna Need A ... LP, Vinyl record album
Post-Tina, Ike Turner changed the name of his band to The Family Vibes, and put out a few nice records of mostly instrumental funk. Given that most of the band members were guys, he probably didn't push them around that much (and there were a lot of them, so they could probably gang up on him ... LP, Vinyl record album
Early Detroit soul – the second LP by the great Marv Johnson, one of the first talents to be supervised by a young Berry Gordy! In fact, it could be said that everything Berry put into his work with Marv led to the formation of Motown – as Marv's mixture of smooth vocals and swinging ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the hippest 70s albums by the Isley Brothers – a set that has them playing live with a stripped-down group, in a manner that's similar to other live albums of the time by Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, and Bill Withers. The format is great, and really gets to the core of the Isley's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Average White Band are most clearly associated with Atlantic Records during the 70s – and that label's genius move to record white soul acts for the crossover market – but this first album was recorded for MCA, and very much in the same vein as their later work. The record's not as ... LP, Vinyl record album
