Lani Hall (1984)

LP (Item 916848) A&M, 1984 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Venezuelan pressing on Ariola.)

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.

Fool On The Hill
A&M, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold

Black Orpheus – Original Soundtrack (Epic)
Epic, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the greatest soundtracks ever – a record that set a whole new standard for audio representation of a film!

Warner (Brazil), 1981. Very Good+
Sweetly soulful work from Gilberto Gil – an album that almost has him in the same sort of R&B-inspired territory as Marcos Valle's early 80s albums!

Milestone, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Flora Purim's 70s classics – an album recorded with that soaring breezy vocal style that she virtually invented – heard here before it got too old, and too copied by other singers!

Expansao
Festival (Brazil), 1965. Near Mint-
An overlooked set of samba jazz from the 60 – one that features three different groups, each with a very hip approach!

Killer reissue that combines both of the albums that Airto recorded for Buddah in the early 70s!
