Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor 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.
Funky stuff! Side one features Lyn Collins' famous version of "Think", much harder and heavier than any previous versions of the tune! The flipside's nice, too – and features a very dope laidback version of "Ain't No Sunshine", with Lyn's voice in fine fine form! Both ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
"Baby Don't Do It" is a sort of bluesy, shouting track, a little like "Message to the Soul Sisters" in format, but with more of an older R&B groove that has Lyn shouting away in a solid soul groove! The b-side's a cover of the Harold Melvin hit, and a nice one at that! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Great stuff from the enigmatic Sweet Charles! The track's one of his mellower tunes, but as with all his work, he's presenting it in a wonderful vocal style that turns an older tune into an extremely compelling soul number. James Brown produced, in a nicely understated mode. 7-inch, Vinyl record
A nice little entry in the "Woman to Woman" answer song series – which was started a few years earlier by Barbara Mason and Shirley Brown. Lonnie pretends he's the man, listening in on the "Woman To Woman" conversation, and thinking about how bad an earner his woman is! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sublime stuff! "I Don't Know" is a great deep soul harmony cut – rolling into a midtempo groove from the intro like a rare Stax gem, with some great guitar and organ riffing along with the vocals, which are sung in a mode that's raspy and sweet at the same time! "Look What ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
"Solar Flight (Opus 1) has a groove that's clearly indebted to 70s keyboard and bass heavy funky soul & disco – but done with even more of a consciously cosmic synth groove – a real precursor to 80s synthesizer music! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Beautiful! Both sides of this one are from Sharon Ridley's hard to find early album for Sussex, and they're both wonderful deep soul cuts that show a side of this singer that never again emerged in her work later in the decade. 7-inch, Vinyl record
