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.

Isley Brothers

Twist & Shout
Wand, 1962. Very Good
Hard soul genius from The Isley Brothers – a set that has the group sounding quite different than their smooth hits from later years – with a hard-burning quality that's mighty nice all the way through! The vocals are still tremendous – and in fact, given that these guys are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

Grand Slam
T Neck, 1981. Very Good
Great work from The Isley Brothers – proof that they were still growing strongly as a group into the 80s! The Isleys are smoothing it out nicely here – going for that lean, compressed style that they used on more than a few nice records at the time. Tracks have a tight modern soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tamla, Mid 60s/1969. Very Good
Best-of compilation containing tracks that the Isleys recorded during their mid 60s stint at Motown. Includes big hits like "This Old Heart Of Mine" and "Take Me In Your Arms", plus other nice stuff like "Take Some Time Out For Love", "There's No Love Left", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isley Brothers

Masterpiece
Warner, 1985. Very Good Gatefold
A hard title to carry for most groups, but just about any release by the Isley Brothers is a masterpiece in our book! Even at this mid 80s point, the Brothers sound great – sliding along in some warm mellow tracks that make the album really worth owning – the kind of laidback soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Tchoupitoulas

Wild Tchoupitoulas
Island, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the weird Meters-related New Orleans parade bands from the 70s – similar to the group The Wild Magnolias, but with a sound that's more in a New Orleans mode than a 70s funk one. The Meters play on the record, and the group sings most of the vocals as well – and production is by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Malcolm McLaren

Fans
Island, 1984. Near Mint-
After his Duck Rock/Buffalo Scratch days, this was Malcolm McLaren's next project – an attempt to update opera into a post-disco, hip-hop inflected dancefloor sound. The groove takes electronic beats and layers vocals and washes of sound over the top – presenting famous vocal passages ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grace Jones

Fame
Island, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
A classic disco stormer from Grace Jones – recorded at Sigma Sound with a real Philly groove, thanks to arrangements from John Monster Davis – and produced with a full, soaring sound from the legendary Tom Moulton! The set may well be Grace's true club classic from the late 70s – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chaka Khan

Hello Happiness
Island, 2019. Near Mint-
A record that's as upbeat as its title – and a set that returns Chaka Khan to the classic club territory of her 80s solo classics! The music is contemporary, but has lots of old school flavors underneath – hints of strings around the edges, and a warmth next to the beats – all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
Gil Scott-Heron's first album – and his angriest! Unlike some of Gil's other albums – which have a sweet jazzy vibe and a mix of mellow soul styles – this one's a lot rawer, and features Gil rapping loud over very heavy percussion backing. All the work is his own, and the album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rotary Connection

Aladdin
Cadet, 1974. Very Good Gatefold
Heavenly mystical soul from Rotary Connection! If you know the group, you know the deal already: Minnie Riperton sings vocals on a number of cuts, and the great Charles Stepney's producing and arranging, with a super-baroque style that's still light years ahead of most producers in pop! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
