12-inch, Vinyl record


4.60 11

To be honest, "Loosey's Rap" sounds like Rick James is trying to imitate mid 80s Prince or the Time, but the "raw rap mix" has more spare production by Marley Marl and actually has some decent rhymes from Big Daddy Kane and Roxanne Shante. (Cover has wear.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Completely sublime! Shuggie Otis first wrote and recorded "Strawberry Letter 23", but it took The Brothers Johnson, and some smooth Quincy Jones production to make it a hit! The track loses none of it's original trippy soul in this version – and if anything, the better vocals ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

One of the first records to come out featuring Prince's funky instrumental combo Madhouse! In the pre-acid jazz days, the band was sort of a lone output for folks like us who remembered the funky jazz sound of the 70s. And while the groove is definitely 80s Prince, this single's also got a nice ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Fantasy, 1979. Sealed
Killer funky cuts, back to back! "Glide" is an upbeat dancefloor tune that was one of the group's most popular numbers, backed here with another uptempo groover that's got lots of wah wah guitar moving really fast, and slick flanged-up vocals that groove in the band's best late mode. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Bang, 1976. Very Good
Great stuff! "Dazz" is the group's super-huge hit, and a stone classic! The track's got a percolated funky groove that's ensured the tune a long long life – and which has lead to more than a few samples over the years! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Solar, 1979. Sealed
A nice little freaky track from "Dynasty" –one that begins with some really great rhythms, and which has a slightly electric vibe bubbling up underneath! "Piece Of The Rock" is a bit warmer overall – very much in the Solar funky soul mode! 12-inch, Vinyl record
