(In a Warner sleeve. Label has a small piece of clear tape.)
Very Good + (plus)
Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight 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.
Wicked! Not only is this track one of our all-time favorite Funkadelic cuts, but it's got a monster sample on the intro that you'll recognize right away! Wicked stuff, with nearly 10 minutes of the cut over both sides of the single! 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of Prince's biggest tunes ever – and a track that still sounds surprisingly great to our ears these days – funky, chunky, and completely catchy – with a hook that shouldn't go over so well, but really sends the tune home time and time again! "17 Days" is great too ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of the most romping tunes ever recorded by Prince – the kind of cut that was an instant dancefloor stormer back in the day, and still sounds mighty groovy all these many years later! The single is backed by the fantastic non-LP cut "Erotic City" – a masterpice of slinky ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of the biggest singles by Charles Wright – and backed with a nice b-side! "Love Land" is a great loping vocal soul cut – a lot sweeter than your average cut by the Watts Rhythm Band, but very catchy and very nice, too! "Sorry Charlie" is an instrumental – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Excellent work from one of the best Detroit groups of the 60s! Both tracks move way past their "Cool Jerk" hit – but still have the same fire and soul of that one. Ollie McLaughlin produced, and the whole thing swings nicely! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Richard Evans wrote and arranged "Burning Spear" for his Soulful Strings, and the track went onto become one of the biggest hits for Chess in the late 60's. Nice groove, and the trippy version of the Beatles track on the flip is pretty great, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
