On How Life Is

(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has some wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.

Sweet instrumentals pulled from the excellent Lady vocal debut – a set that doesn't feature the female singers at all, and instead just has this great El Michels kind of groove!

Arise
Brownswood (UK), 2017. Very Good+
Zara McFarlane is looking a lot more righteous on the cover of this one – and the sound is a lot more righteous too, as you might guess from the title! Zara's vocals have always been a tremendous instrument of power, but this time around she's directing them towards a great sense of social ... LP, Vinyl record album
GOOD/Columbia, 2010. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
John Legend shakes loose of the contemporary pop soul style of his previous couple of records with a comparatively raw and direct soul vibe – revisiting some of best socially aware, emotionally resonant and still relevant songs of the 60s & 70s! The best tracks on the set are the ones ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Clap, 2017. Near Mint-
Underground System have really expanded their vibe this time around – still working with some of the Afro Funk styles of before, but also opening up into a range of contemporary soul styles that maybe fit the image of the cover a bit more than we might have guessed! There's lots of great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jorja Smith

Lost & Found
Famm Limited, 2018. Sealed Gatefold
The fantastic first full-length set from Jorja Smith – a British singer who first rose to fame working with Drake, but who's very much her own woman on this powerful debut! Jorja's got this snakey style of singing – very seductive, especially when wrapped around the beats of the tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mama's Gun
Motown, 2000. Near Mint- 2LP
A millennial classic from Erykah Badu – a set that came along right as the current century was starting up, to show a soulful path that would keep things strong for many years to come! The album grabbed a bigger audience than Erykah's first, but still kept things strong – really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

You Send Me
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Houston Person

Truth!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good+
One of Houston Person's first forays into the jazz funk sound that other Prestige Records players were picking up at the time – a sweet little set with some nicely extended tunes! The groove here is a bit harder than some of Person's previous soul jazz sets – with some tightly snapping ... LP, Vinyl record album
