then checkout as usual.
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.

Early early work by The Isley Brothers – recorded for United Artists in the early and mid 60s, in the years between their hit work for RCA and Motown. The material here leans heavily on the "Twist & Shout" sound of the RCA years – taking elements of R&B group styles, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great work from The Isley Brothers – proof that they were still growing strongly as a group into the 80s! The Isleys are smoothing it out nicely here – going for that lean, compressed style that they used on more than a few nice records at the time. Tracks have a tight modern soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strong extension of the Isley Brothers' funky 70s style – moving into a more compressed mode that had been taking hold of the group's style over the past few albums – giving them a smoother finish in the end, but one that actually brings out a deeper level of soul in the music! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Marvin Gaye's last album ever – and a sensuous batch of grooves that almost return him to the sound of Let's Get It On! The style here is a bit more modern, but the sound is still great – a smoother approach to soul than most of Gaye's contemporaries at the time, recorded in a way that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soaring soul from Googie and Tom Coppola – much more of an R&B-inflected album than their earlier rock work in the group Air – sublimely produced with help from Jerry Peters, who brings in a sweet LA groove! Googie's vocals are especially great – with a higher-pitch Minnie ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wonderful first album from Ronnie Dyson – a set that's mostly soul, but also has some nicely trippy touches too – which provides a great springboard for Dyson's famous role in the musical Hair! Ronnie's got a voice that's gospelly deep at times – able to soar out with these ... LP, Vinyl record album
If ever there was an album to prove the old Columbia/Atlantic split about Aretha's strengths and talents, this is it. The record works on a formula that should be strong enough – and it has Aretha reprise a number of classic R&B tunes by Dinah Washington. However, the arrangements by ... LP, Vinyl record album
An overlooked smooth soul gem from Tyrone Davis – cut during his early years at Columbia, and recorded with a sweet Chicago finish! Arrangements are by James Mack, who also handled the small backing group on the record – and Tyrone's singing with that raspy style we always love, fused ... LP, Vinyl record album
A sweet overview of the early years of Aretha Franklin's career – her formative days at Columbia Records, when she was working in a variety of styles before heading over to bigger fame at Atlantic! Even at this early stage, Aretha's one hell of a singer – and, despite what folks who ... LP, Vinyl record album
A big hit for the group – and a great album of smooth funky soul! Spirit is a perfect example of the way that Earth Wind & Fire could tighten things up, yet still keep them real – holding onto the deeply spiritual side that first made them great – but also focusing their ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty sweet late 70s set from Deniece Williams – produced by Maurice White of Earth Wind & Fire – and it sounds like it! The set ranges from catchy, crossover ready funky soul sweetened ever more by Deniece's amazing voice, to more stripped down and intimate numbers. There's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
