A sweet little groover – lifted from the soundtrack to Brown Sugar! Raphael Saadiq and Erykah Badu handle production – and the track's got the best of both of their styles intertwined in one sensuous groove. Erykah's vocals sweetly bubbly across the track – a great mix of beats and keys with a warm finish on the hook.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo in a stickered sleeve.)

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.

Work, 1994. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Probably our favorite track off our favorite LP by JK & crew, a number with a fat, jazzy bass, and a nice uptempo groove filled out by nice keys. Dave Morales makes great us of the scatted vocal tracks on the flip, for a nice club version with an uplifting vibe that's just a shade under ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
ABB, 2004. Near Mint-
The first song we ever heard from the incredible Lizz Fields – mixed up nicely by DJ Spinna! Spinna takes the helm on the "You've Been Warned" mix – working with Lizz's spare tune, and filling the whole thing into a crackling, snappling assemblage of beats and keys – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Ovum Recordings, 1997. Sealed (pic cover)
Lots of mixes – and one of the strongest bits of modern R&B from the ever growing King Britt! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 2002. Sealed
A sweet little tune lifted from India's Voyage To India album – a warmly thumping number with some very nice work on bass, and a cool flanged out vocal style that bubbles up nicely to our ears! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fresh, 1987. Very Good
Both cuts produced by KRS One. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Wreck, 1994. Very Good
"I Got Cha Opin" is the second hit from the first LP. On "Reality" even with it's hardcore lyrics, the Beatminers still make amazing use of a Roy Ayers' mellow "We Live In Brooklyn." 12-inch, Vinyl record
Rawkus/BBE, 2001. Very Good
From Jay Dee's Welcome To Detroit LP, with Frank N Dank on "Pause" and Phat Kat on "Track". 12-inch, Vinyl record
Emergency, 1984. Very Good
A track that really takes us back, like any of the Arthur Baker or Johnny Rocca cuts, or Shannon's "Let the Music Play". We're not sure this qualifies for classic status, but it does make us feel a little nostalgic. 12-inch, Vinyl record
