(White label promo. Labels are aged. Vinyl plays pretty rough – with a skip on "House Rent Party".)
This is a grade we rarely use, as we try not to sell records
in very bad condition, though in some rare cases we will list a
record in such bad shape that it does not conform to the standards above.
A "Fair" record will have enough marks or significant flaws that it
does not even qualify as "Good", but is a copy you might consider
for playing, if you're willing to put up with noise and/or flaws.
An example might be a recording with surface noise so heavy that
it is equal to the volume of the music. For records listed as "Fair",
we will describe the extent of the condition in the comments.
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.

Two rockin instrumentals with heavy sax and organ work! "Late Date" has a nice creeping feel that's in keeping with the name – a bit R&B-ish, with a good kind of jazz club groove! "Get It" has a lighter touch on the keys, but is still quite nice – with a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A slow and bass-heavy funk number from Rasputin Stash – moving along at a pace that's prefaces much of the early 80s LA bass funk, and done with a sound that's heavier and much more in a Chicago soul vein. There's a solid ensemble approach here – with lots of P-Funk touches, as you ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
