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.
2 nice tracks by this oft-overlooked east coast harmony group. "Don't Send" has a large production feel, with arrangements by Bert DeCoteaux, and a sound that almost hits the Spinners groove from the same time. "Don't Let Me Be" has great harmonies, and a solid soul sound that ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Great small combo work by Roberta Flack, recorded early in her career, when she was still one of the hippest things around – and it's among her best records! Roberta's really come into her own as vocalist at this point and solidifying here personal style – with that clear tone and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A bona-fide club classic – and the standout classic of the South Shore Commission! The tune's got a stepping soulful approach that's early Philly club at its best – the early days of disco, when there was still plenty of soul in the mix! 7-inch, Vinyl record
An incredible track! Hank plays it super-hip by shouting "How you gonna get respect if you ain't cut your process yet!" And while his comments on African-American hairstyles may not have the same power as some of James Brown's political messages – the track's hard raw storming ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Heavy funk from one of the heaviest funk groups of all time! "Bra" is a stone winner from Cymande – slow sloppy bass on the intro, as horns slide into the groove and the track opens up with some weird flanged-out vocals! "Folk Song" is anything but – a strange ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
