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.
A northern soul classic! Jackie's the same guy as Earl from Bob & Earl, and combined with his excellent work in that duo, he's one heck of a big force in underground 60s soul! His hard groover "The Duck" has always been a favorite on soul dancefloors around the world! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Obscure mid period material from Garland! "Bumpin & Stompin" is a funky disco number, with a groove that's not too bad in a kind of pop soul way, but which doesn't work as well for Garland as other backing. The flip's nice, though, and features a very tasty spokey bluesy kind of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 killer 60s instrumentals! "Shhhhh" is nothing quiet at all – and the track's a stormer with heavy drums, wailing organ, and some nice grunts and groans from James in the background! "Here I Go" is a groover, too – and one with a very unusual piano in the lead! 7-inch, Vinyl record
We never tire of the Intruders – and a single like this is the reason why! "I'm Girl Scoutin" is great stuff in their classic mode – with kind of a silly theme, but solid soul vocals that totally put the whole thing over without a flaw! "Wonder What Kind" is great, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A stone classic from Tyrone – and one of the best Chicago soul singles of the late 60s! "Can I Change My Mind" has a vamping, romping groove that's every bit the Brunswick sound at its best – topped with incredible vocals by Tyrone, on a lyric that practically hearalds a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
