Electric Cafe

LP (Item 62511) Warner, 1986 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

A mid-80s gem from Krafwerk – a record that almost caught the world by a bit of surprise, and which showed that the four robotic guys from Germany were alive and well! The influence of Kraftwerk on the sound of early 80s music is undeniable – from rock to soul to hip hop – yet here, the group remind us that they're still better at the game than most – using spareness to create a lot more than some of the more bombastic younger groups of the time – bringing warmth to the digital age in a way that so many others could not!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing with SRC/Masterdisk stamps. Includes the printed inner 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.
