Side Effect

LP (Item 7628) Fantasy, 1975 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.70 11

Side Effect's first album on Fantasy – a wonderful record that's partly soul, partly jazz vocals – and put together with a wickedly funky undercurrent, thanks to the talents of the mighty Wayne Henderson! Side Effect were way more than just another 70s harmony group – as their vocal approach was rooted in jazz, and really stretches out with a complicated vibe that Henderson not only respects perfectly, but finds a way to push nicely – thanks to some tight jazz funk instrumentation from heavyweights like Ronnie Laws, Joe Sample, Spider Webb, and Arthur Adams! Titles include "Oh Baby", "There She Goes Again", "Spend It On Love", "Tree Of Love", "Checkin It Out", and "I Love You So Much". (Promo. Cover has ring & edge wear, a bumped corner and a small sticker on the back.)  © 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.
