Tom Tom Club

LP (Item 8390) Sire, 1981 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 11

The first album by The Tom Tom Club – the strange little offshoot of the Talking Heads that featured Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz – and one of the most influential records of the early 80s in both the mainstream and the avant pop underground! Legendary status aside, the album a weird mix of the Talking Heads' child-like rock with some innovative early hip hop influenced grooves – and is famous with hip hoppers for the track "Genius Of Love", a track that was quickly picked up and covered at the time. Includes "Wordy Rappinghood", "As Above So Below", "On On On On", "Lorelei", and "Genius Of Love".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Stone cold LP of killer seventies funky soul from Chicago!
