Their Greatest Sides

LP (Item 72418) Chess, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

We couldn't think of a better title for this one – as every track is a winner! The Moonglows are, to us, doo wop at its best – hanging here between the rough styles of earlier years, and the overproduced work of later ones. The group are working near accapella here – with just a bit of rhythmic backing and guitar – in a style that glides with effortless magic that few other groups, no matter how great, could ever hope to match! Titles include "Ten Commandments Of Love", "In My Diary", "Sincerely", "Blue Velvet", "Penny Arcade", "Over & Over Again", and the sublime "Most Of All".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s Sugar Hill pressing.)

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.
