(Still sealed with hype sticker. Cover has a cutout hole.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

First Circle

Boys' Night Out
EMI, 1987. Near Mint-
An overlooked killer from First Circle – the only album ever cut by this obscure Brooklyn group, and a sweet set of 80s groove all the way through! There's a tight bounce to the whole record – thanks in part to production from Randy Muller, who gives the set the same focus and energy ... LP, Vinyl record album

EMI (UK), Mid 70s. Near Mint-
An interesting UK collection from the 70s – one that features some obvious disco material by Tavares, Jesse Green, Sun, Gonzalez, Gloria Jones, and Taste Of Honey – but which also includes tracks by John Forde, T Rex, Matumbi, Marshall Hain, Patsy Gallant, and Clout! LP, Vinyl record album
EMI, Mid 40s-1950s. Near Mint-
Includes selections from Helen Humes, Shirley & Lee, Peppermint Harris, Louis Jordan, Amos Milburn, Five Keys, Big T Tyler, Thurston Harris, Gene & Eunice, and Marvin & Johnny. LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A great album filled with hard breaks, tight choppy guitars, and a deep funky sound. This is one of the best early albums by the Nite Liters, and it's filled with great grooves like "Funky-Doo", "Stinkin Charlie", and "K-Jee" – but just about every track is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Average White Band

Soul Searching
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
Sublime mid 70s work from The Average White Band – and a record that really has the group deepening their groove a bit – moving past the heavier funk of their roots, into some mellower grooves that are totally great! There's a great undercurrent of jazz in some of the playing here ... LP, Vinyl record album

Patti Drew

Tell Him
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
A homegirl from the Chicago suburbs, on her first solo outing. Includes the massive "Tell Him", plus a bunch of other sweet 60s soul cuts. Classic soul of the sort that was being produced independently, and then being sold to the majors. All of her Capitol LPs are great, but this one's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Shaft
Enterprise, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A landmark album that hardly needs any introduction – as it's one of the most famous soundtracks, if not soul records, of the 70s! Isaac Hayes had already surprised music fans with the sophistication of his first few solo albums, which had been issued before this one – but with Shaft, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic (Japan), Early 50s. Very Good+
That's "Doo Wop", not "Do Wap" – a fine little collection of doo wops, despite the misspelling of the title, all rare Atlantic sides from the fifties, by groups whose individual singles trade for crazy money, collected for release as this album in Japan in the 80s. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene McDaniels

Hit After Hit
Liberty, 1962. Very Good+
A well-titled album, as it features some of Gene's big early hits, mixed along with lesser-known gems – all done in that proud, loud style he used before becoming the Headless Hero! Snuff Garrett produced most of the work, and the tunes have a bold approach that certainly draws from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heatwave

Central Heating
Epic, 1978. Very Good+
The second album by Heatwave – and a great effort that's almost as perfectly sublime as the first! Despite their UK origin, these guys really give American late 70s soul a run for its money – hitting in a sweetly compressed sound that fuses the vocals, keyboards, and grooves together ... LP, Vinyl record album

Average White Band & Ben E King

Benny & Us
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good+
Ben E King joins the Average White Band for this sweet 70s set – a killer record that not only stands as one of King's best efforts of the decade, but one that also gives the group a great new frontman! Ben's not the only singer on the record, but his presence here can definitely be felt ... LP, Vinyl record album
