Great Twenty Eight

LP (Item 626926) Chess, 1950s/1960s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

(Recent reissue pressing.)

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.

SCLC Operation Breadbasket Orch & Choir

On The Case
Chess, 1970. Very Good
A full-blown, very righteous offering from Chess to the political cause of Operation Breadbasket!

Bama – The Village Poet

Ghettos Of The Mind
Chess, 1974. Very Good-
A lost classic in the funky poetry mode of the 70s – and right up there with the best work from the time by the Last Poets, Jim Ingram, or Gil Scott Heron!

Etta James

Chess, 1973. Very Good+
Heavy funk from the great Etta James – one of her standout classics from the later Chess years, done with a style that's completely different than her work of the 60s!

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

Black & Blue
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
Classic Philly soul from Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes – a killer batch of studio tracks, despite the live image of the group on the cover!

Norma Jenkins

Patience Is A Virtue
Desert Moon, 1976. Very Good
The only album ever cut by Norma Jenkins – a New Jersey singer with a surprisingly great ear for a deep soul groove!

Bobby Hebb

Sunny
Philips, 1966. Very Good+
Sublime pop soul genius from Bobby Hebb – a standout record that really made his career, and a dusty nugget we never tire of hearing!

United Artists, 1972. Very Good+
A monster from start to finish – not only the greatest album from War, but maybe one of the greatest mainstream funk albums of all time!

Brother To Brother

In The Bottle
Turbo, 1974. Very Good+
Far and away the greatest album that Brother To Brother ever cut – and a monster record that's satisfying all the way through!
