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

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
A killer bit of harmony soul – one of the greatest of the genre from the 70s! Brighter Side Of Darkness are barely remembered these days – but "Love Jones" is one of those cuts that will go on forever – a sweetly tripped out number with incredibly baroque production, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sublime soul from one of the most under-recognized singers of all time! "Bring My Baby Back" is a different tune than the hit of the same name – sung by Jesse in a light, yet soulful vocal style that's really tremendous. "Thank You Darlin" is even greater – coming ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
An excellent hard-to-find track by Lyn Collins! "Me & My Baby" has a wonderful gospelly intro, similar to "Message to the Soul Sisters", which then leaps into a great groove with a nice hard soul hook! The flip has sort of a nice Muscle Shoals-ish sound, with some good ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two classics from Curtis' first solo album! "Hell Below" is here in a shorter single version – leaving off the intro, and beginning smack in the middle of the tight wah wah groove. "Makings Of You" is a mellow track with a floating and baroque quality – strings and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Here's a classic – Curtis' theme to Superfly, and a tune that never seems to get old. The track's got a stop-start chugging groove that's instantly infectious, laid out by basslines and conga, plus some nice wah wah guitar mixed with Curtis' vocals! Backed here with "Love To Keep You ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two tasty cuts by one of Chicago's best vocal groups ever! Both tracks were written by Leroy Hutson – and "Can This Be Real" was one of the group's bigger hits! Heavenly soul, and produced with a great sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Garland Green's great remake of this classic! He sings it with a nice deep Chicago soul style, augmented by some of the slightly modern/southern style production of the Spring label. "You & I Go Good" is even better, though – a sweetly stepping number that follows in the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of the most overlooked groups of the east coast scene of the early 70s – but a great one! "The Way I Love You" has some stellar stellar harmonies, and a rolling conga-driven groove that's sort of in the pre-club vein! The flip's even better, though – and is a wonderful ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
