Real Thing/Mozambique

12-inch (Item 80477) Elektra, 1977 — Condition: Very Good+
(pic cover)
(€21.00 || £18.51 || ¥2801) (approx.)

2 great numbers off of one of the funkiest of Sergio Mendes' 70s albums, Sergio Mendes & The New Brasil '77. Side A's a perennial favorite here in Chicago – "The Real Thing" is a funky cover of the Stevie Wonder tune by the same name, done in a tight smooth 70s jazz funk mode, a style that's keep the song fresh for many years to come! "Mozambique" pops along in a similarly slick late 70s funk crossover mode, too! (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2017, 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.
