Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw,
such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-,
or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount,
and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has
been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing.
Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.
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! This oft-overlooked funky number features James shouting "pick up on this" a few times at the beginning – no instrumentation, just shouted vocals, in a great way that's excellent for dropping into a mix!

A really cool 7" single from Japan – with a stunning version of "Lullaby Of The Leaves" played by Sleepy Matsumoto on tenor with a small combo that includes organ! The other side features a straighter take on the theme of the film. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Massive! It's hard to describe just why Johnny Lytle's so great – but hear this single, and figure out why! Both cuts have this incredible sound that mixes together jazzy vibes, screaming organ, and wailing conga in a totally great way. They also both have a jazz stepping vibe that's ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 nice ones from the Hell Up In Harlem soundtrack! "Ain't It Hell Up In Harlem" is a killer vocal number – right on a par with the best of the blacksploitation themes, like "Are You Man Enough?" or "Across 110th Street" – sung superbly by Edwin, with tight ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great one from Michael – one of our favorite early tracks by him! The tune's a great bubbling number from Leon Ware – one that shows Michael singing in a slightly more mature style that really comes off well! "We've Got A Good Thing" is more of a sweet pop tune – but ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
