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.

Front Line
Virgin, 1976. Very Good
While this sort of compilation is usually put together as a "loss leader" to introduce audiences to their roster, it's actually quite successful as an overview of the mid 70s reggae scene, at least as viewed through the eyes of the then quite nice Virgin reggae catalog. 10 tracks in all: ...

Harder They Come
Island, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Scratch Perry & The Upsetters

Clint Eastwood
Pama (UK), 1969. Very Good+
A record that furthers the idea of the outlaw in reggae – as Lee Perry takes the Upsetters past the safer territory of ska and rocksteady, and brings in a few great guests who all get the benefit of his studio magic as well! The rhythms are nice and deep, and produced with that monstrous ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green Is Love
Hi Records, 1975. Sealed
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al Green's at the height of his powers here – working in that wonderfully smooth, wonderfully warm style that made his early 70s material so wonderful! This album's maybe slightly less iconic than some of Green's other titles for Hi ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Hot Buttered Soul
Enterprise, 1969. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Isaac Hayes! Although Ike had first appeared on LP with the album "Introducing", this was the first record to really expose his true soul genius – and it was also the first release on Ike's successful sub-label at Stax, Enterprise Records. The record shows that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Kendricks

Slick
Tamla/Motown, 1977. Sealed
Smooth mellow grooves, in the style that Eddie pioneered, and which he still did better than most. The album's a great batch of tracks with production by Leonard Caston, who also produced some of Eddie's earlier works, and the set's pretty darn great all the way through. With the cuts "Someth ...
