Hanging Fire

LP (Item 716642) Columbia, 1988 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover has a promo stamp.)

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.

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.

Jimmy Cliff

Cliff Hanger
Columbia, 1985. Near Mint-
Mid 80s record from the great Jimmy Cliff. While he was in his prime in the early 70s, this much later commercial effort shows he's still got the skills to pay the bills, and we actually kind of like the sound of him singing over the glossy crossover-attempt tracks, which have that great 80s Sly ...

Columbia, Mid 70s/Early 80s. Near Mint-
An odd compilation pulled together by Columbia in the 80s, not because the assortment of tracks is especially out of place or without continuity, but because the set seems mostly to be pulled together to capitalize on reggae's popularity, though it was assembled well after most major labels had ...

The second album From LKJ, a tough and tight follow up to Dread Beat and Blood, with the poet coming just as hard out the box this time around as the first.
