❔

One of the greatest soul Christmas albums of the 70s – a warm and smooth set by The Whispers, done in a style that's actually better than most of their hit work of the time! The style here is really great – and takes us back to the best Whispers mellow soul of the end of the 70s, before the production got too slick, and the lyrics a bit too lost. The set's got some nice original material – like "Funky Christmas" and "This Time Of Year" – plus great versions of Donny Hathaway's "This Christmas, and "Happy Holidays", "White Christmas", and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
