Collection Of 16 Original Big Hits – Vol 3
LP (Item 816204) Motown, 1964 — Condition: Very Good
(Cover has a split top seam, some tape residue on the top seam, and light surface wear.)
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.

Sometimes these moves were clear "loss leaders" that wouldn't ... LP, Vinyl record album
Early solo work by Diana – mostly in a mode that steps off nicely from her late work with the Supremes, thanks to some expansive production by the Ashford & Simpson team (who also wrote most of the cuts), and arrangements by Paul Riser that mix strings and soul into the sophisticated pre-d ...

Lionel's first solo album after leaving the Commodores – and a solid bit of mellow soul that forever merged the genres of soul music and adult contemporary! Titles include "Serves You Right", "My Love", "Tell Me", "You Are", "Truly", "Jus ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic heartbreaking soul from Brenda Holloway – one of the weepiest early records on Motown, as you might guess from the title! The style here is almost more New York uptown than Detroit at times – a fair bit like Maxine Brown with its mix of strength and fragility on the vocals, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
We'll be the first to admit that for years, we never forgave Clyde McPhatter for leaving The Drifters – but as time has gone on, hearing records like this really have made us appreciate his greatness on his own!

Nothing Fragile here – as Cherrelle comes across with plenty of power on this debut LP – thanks to sharp production from Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on some of the best cuts, and an overall groove that's right on the best side of early 80s soul! The Jam/Lewis tracks are heavy on ... LP, Vinyl record album
