Checkin' For Me (radio, club, inst, acapella)

12-inch (Item 931996) Warner, 1999 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Orange vinyl promo, with red labels.)

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.

Warner, 1983. Sealed (pic cover)
This one's already a great tune in its own right, but on the remix, Larry Levan stretches the whole thing out with a brilliant Paradise-style mix of disco and club – one that makes the track one of Chaka's last great numbers! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Warner, 1980. Very Good-
One of Chaka Khan's greatest solo moments – served up on a rare promo single! "Papillon" is Chaka's reworking of the classic "Hot Butterfly" from Gregg Diamond – done here with warm production from Arif Mardin, and a groove that's even more steppingly sublime than ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Liberty, 1981. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Early 80s slap bass funk – of the sort that was showing up on the Liberty label at the time, and which here comes across pretty well. The best cut is "Love Is On The One", which has a catchy sing-song groove, and a very nice hook. Both tracks from the Point of Pleasure LP. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Brunswick, 1979. Very Good
What can we say? This is a classic! The track has a monster roller skating groove that's been sampled more than a few times over the years – but which still sounds incredible on its own! Both parts are great – and even though the single's pretty darn long, you still never want it to ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Motown, 1979. Near Mint-
One of Teena's best cuts for Motown, from the Wild & Peaceful album, produced by Rick James. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Capitol, 1982. Near Mint-
P-funk reigning strong again – as "Atomic Dog" was the song that proved that George Clinton could still funk it up for the 80s! This original 12" single features the 10 minute long version –with plenty of nice instrumental solos to keep up the groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Airtight, 1999. Near Mint-
A later single from this former Soul II Soul singer, off the Essence LP, with production by Salaam Remi and guest spot by Biz Markie. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Paisley Park, 1985. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Of all the various pieces of the Paisley Park empire, this is probably the one we most fondly return to. A great mid tempo groover, that could be a standout single on one of Prince's album from the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record
