Two nice lost soul tracks by this obscure band! "Porcupine" is very different to describe – but basically, it's an instrumental that starts with these Latiny piano riffs, kind of in triplets, and then it leaps into a stop-start guitar groove that's pretty nice. "Rhythm" is more of a smooth club track, but it's got some good spacey production, and a weird sound effect in the background that sounds really great. There's also some vocals on the chorus.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Completely sublime! Shuggie Otis first wrote and recorded "Strawberry Letter 23", but it took The Brothers Johnson, and some smooth Quincy Jones production to make it a hit! The track loses none of it's original trippy soul in this version – and if anything, the better vocals ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Polydor, 1976. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Rare promo-only 12" single that features one of James' best funk numbers from the late 70s. The sound is tight and hard, with a killer approach that showed James taking on disco with full strength. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Nice & Slow/I Get Lifted
Wand/Scepter, 1976. Very Good+
Jesse Green's classic "Nice & Slow" was a welcome soulful moment on the dancefloors of the mid 70s. The track's got a great groove, and has a wonderful little hook that keeps it on going a long long time. "I Get Lifted" is a great little track – one that's best known ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
