Role Play EP

LP (Item 846721) Heavenly Sweetness (France), 2015 — Condition: Near Mint-

Bilal makes a great guest appearance here – adding an extra presence and depth to "Role Play" – a tune that's got this very unique sort of cascading bassline, and which is already nice enough with soulful vocals from Leron Thomas – but which really steps over the line when Bilal comes in, and gives the track a great double-voiced approach! The song is presented here in a full version, radio edit, and Thomas/Crumpler remix – and the EP also includes the excellent "Victorian Walls", with just Leron on his own, moving over a sweet slow keyboard groove!  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • 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.
