Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Everybody Needs Love
SOUL, 1967. Very Good+

Motown, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Although Gladys Knight & The Pips didn't cut their first recordings or their biggest recordings for Motown, they did still do a pretty nice job at the label – as you'll hear on this nice 2LP set that brings together a nice batch of their best tracks.

Pipe Dreams – Original Soundtrack
Buddah, 1976. Near Mint-
After hitting big as a singer on the soundtrack for Claudine, Gladys Knight finally got her chance in front of the camera for Pipe Dreams – a record that featured her both as the star on film and on the soundtrack! The styles here are a bit more wider-ranging than the usual 70s soundtrack of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Imagination
Buddah, 1973. Very Good
A pivotal album for Gladys Knight and group – as the record features their super-huge hit "The Midnight Train To Georgia", a landmark track that not only had a catchy pop hook, but which spoke volumes about African-American migration in the postwar years. The track's one of those ... LP, Vinyl record album

If I Were Your Woman
Motown, 1971. Very Good+
A new level of sophistication for Gladys Knight – and a record that opened the door to the mellower style that would break big for her in the 70s! The title cut is almost worth the price of the record alone – a slow-stepping, blue-tinged number that perfectly blends Knight's lead ... LP, Vinyl record album

Standing Ovation
SOUL, 1971. Very Good
Almost a deeper soul sound than before from Gladys Knight – a record that features some very strong southern-styled production from Johnny Bristol and Clay McMurray – but in a way that reflects the new sort of "adult" mode of the time! The style here is a careful blend of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Chandler

Duke Of Earl (Upfront)
Up Front, Early 60s. Very Good+
A sweet soul classic from the young Gene Chandler! The record is built around Gene's hit "Duke Of Earl" – and it features Gene in a ridiculous looking "Duke" costume on the cover – but the record's a great one overall, and features some excellent late-night soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing Big Maybelle
Up Front, Mid 60s. Sealed
... 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

Lucifer

Lucifer
Invictus, 1971. Very Good
Wonderfully weird sounds from Lucifer – a record cut during the powerhouse 70s soul years of the Invictus/Hot Wax label, but done with a sound that's much more bluesy and rootsy than any other work for the company! Vocals are by Eugene Smith, who has a cool sort of Bay Area vibe – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hi Records, 1972. Very Good+
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the ... LP, Vinyl record album
