Spring Rain (original, short version)

12-inch (Item 72575) Salsoul, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

12-inch, Vinyl record


What a tune – one of our favorite Salsoul tracks ever! "Spring Rain" is a magical blend of strings, beats, and this soaring piano – all coming together in a lush groove that never quits, peppered with some sweet female chorus vocals that never sound cheesy! (Label has a bpm sticker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Orchestral genius from Bebu Silvetti – one of our favorite disco maestros of the 70s! "Concert From The Stars" has a sound that's almost as ambitious as its title – a tune that starts out with spare strings, then picks up a groove as it rolls on – letting the strings ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

AVI, 1980. Very Good (pic cover)
Back in the day, Chicago never had much of a rap scene – which is why it was so easy for Chicago radio DJ Casper to score big with this little groover on the AVI label! The cut's actually not bad as sort of a funky clubby track – and Casper's rapping style reminds us a lot of Gary Byrd ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Farrakhan with musical backing by a small combo that includes keyboards, guitar, and drums.
