Licensed To Ill

LP (Item 8240) Def Jam, 1986 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold
Also available
Beastie Boys — Licensed To Ill (180 gram pressing) ... LP 22.99

The game changing Def Jam classic! Profane party anthems galore, and the Beasties would distance themselves from much of the attitude of this album, making their career arc from stoopid (as opposed to stupid) to thoughtful and playful innovators one of the more interesting artistic evolutions of their generation for sure. With all the killer cuts: "Rhymin & Stealin", "The New Style", "Girls", "Fight For Your Right To Party", "No Sleep Til Brooklyn", "Paul Revere", "Hold It Now Hit It", "She's Crafty", and more.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing with Masterdisk etch, including the Def Jam inner sleeve.)

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.

Elektra, 1996. Near Mint- 2LP
Soundtrack of "Set It Off" (with Latifah as Cleo) with hip hop and non-hip hop tracks. Latifah does a good job dissing some other female on MC's on "Name Callin'", the first dope song we've heard from Latifah in a while – we just wish they'd included the even doper "N ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grandmaster Flash

Elektra, 1986. Very Good+
Grandmaster Flash's late effort, circa '86 – after disbanding the Furious Five – though Rahiem & Kid Creole appear along with a number of other rappers! This was Flash's second album for Elektra – and uses it to showcase some of the other talents in the unit, a la his records ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic/ABB, 2005. Near Mint- 2LP
Little Brother transitions to the majors with their soulful underground sound intact – and deliver an effort that in the best moments improve upon the already classic Listening LP! It looks like this just isn't going to go over with the TRL crowd, despite the Atlantic logo. The soul sample ... LP, Vinyl record album

Malcolm McLaren

Duck Rock
Island, 1983. Very Good
Funky b-boy classic! Sure, Malcolm was a blood-sucking vampire who was hungry enough to exploit any trend he could get his hands on – but in this case, he did all right, and came up with an album that stands the test of time in the breakdance crates. Includes the classics "Buffalo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Philly's Most Wanted

Get Down Or Lay Down (clean album)
Atlantic, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP
... LP, Vinyl record album
Coral, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A fantastic little record of 60s organ jazz – despite an unseemly photo of Greg Hatza's pimply face on the cover! Greg's young at this point, but he's really a whiz at the keyboard – and grooves hard in a trio that features a young Eric Gale on guitar, and Grady Tate on drums. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mann

Say You Love Me Too
ABC, 1973. Very Good+
Weird mix of Philly soul production with vocals that have more of a southern soul kind of feel to them. Charles' voice is nice and rich, and the tracks are arranged by Vince Montana & Norman Harris. Includes some nice ballads, and a few uptempo tracks, including a Philly version of Steely Dan' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
The Meters take their Crescent City groove in a slightly different direction – giving things a warmer, sunnier feel than their previous records – and bringing in a fair bit more vocals, too – yet still keeping all the right funky elements at the bottom! The move is a bit like ... LP, Vinyl record album
