LP (Item 63152) Warner, 1974 — Condition: Very Good

After his huge success with The Harder They Come, Cliff made a number of LPs in the states, most self produced, some of which were more succesful than others, and many with a clear nod towards US Soul and R&B, like this one. And though we'd be hard pressed to call this one of his best, it does have a few moments that shine through, like the tracks "Brother" and "No. 1 Rip Off Man", and of course Cliff's vocals still sound wonderful. Also includes "Long Time No See", "Look What You've Done To My Life, Devil Woman" and "Money Won't Save You".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.
