All the wonderful styles and sounds of the Tru Thoughts label – brought together here in a very well-priced collection! As with other Shapes volumes, the set offers a great way to take a look at the best work of this long-running source of some of the freshest sounds from the underground – funky soul, soulful grooves, cosmic beats, and lots more in between – including some Tru Thoughts tracks from out of print singles and the digital world as well. 2LP set features 13 tracks in all – and titles include "Zheng" by Johnny Faith, "Breakdown" by Alice Russell with Darondo, "101 Reasons" by J Felix, "Sidesteppin" by Werkha with Bryony Jarman Pinto, "You Will Return (Ahmed Sirour rmx)" by Quantic with Alice Russell, "So Natural" by Titeknots, "Headgames" by Lost Midas with Audris, "Flight (Mungo's hi fi rmx)" by Hidden Orchestra, "Oblivion" by The Seshen, "Medicine Chest (dub)" by Prince Fatty meets Nostalgia 77, "Bingo Bango" by Hot 8 Brass Band, "I Believe (Peshay rmx)" by Harleighblu, and "Back It Up" by Ghost Writerz.  © 1996-2019, 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.
