Urban Exposure

LP (Item 7630) K-Tel, 1986 — Condition: Very Good+

A cheapo compilation, but one with some great 80s hip hop hits – all presented in full-length versions too! Tracks include "Get Busy" by Disco Four, "Bassline" by Mantronix, "PSK What Does It Mean" by Schoolly D, "Jam Master Jammin (rmx)" by Run DMC, "Forgive Me Girl" by Force MDs, "Escape" by Whodini, "Inspector Gadget" by Kartoon Krew, and even "Super Bowl Shuffle" by The Chicago Bears Shufflin Crew!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.
