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.
For years, we were turned away from this one because of the "strings" in the title – but don't make the same mistake, because the record's a nice one, with Joe singing in a sophisticated southern soul style that still has a lot of nice raw edges. The record was recorded with Tommy ... LP, Vinyl record album
We couldn't think up a better title to describe the way that Joe Tex approached soul music in the 60s – giving 110% to his music, working like a dog to climb the ranks that were already filled with other budding soul stars! This album's a perfect example of Joe at his best – nearly all ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great compilation of heavenly soul tracks by this successful mid 60s combo! The record includes the group's monster crossover hit "Our Day Will Come", plus lots of other nicer stuff that's pretty darn hard to find – like "The End Of The World", "Does He Really Care ... LP, Vinyl record album
A fantastic collection of the work of Betty Lavette – an amazing southern soul diva who crafted some incredible recordings! Betty's right up there with great like Betty Harris, Carolyn Franklin, and Ann Sexton for sheer hard, raw, soul sister power – and this 12-track set features a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A legendary collection of music – filled with rare southern soul! The cuts here all come from the original Sansu empire formed by Marshall Sehorn and Allen Toussaint – a key force in New Orleans soul of the 60s – thanks to Toussaint's amazing ear for new talent, and bold new ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great (and now out of print!) collection of Dee's best work for the Vee Jay label – and even better than the usual hit collection, because it features cuts he recorded with The Dells, The Kook Gents, The Upsetters, and The Delegates. Dee was one of the label's most versatile singers, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
An obscure late 70s session by Solomon Burke – recorded in a style that's got some of the rootsier, bluesier touches of his early 70s work on MGM, plus a bit of the smoother sound from his mid 70s sides for Chess! Solomon's voice is still in fine shape on the set, and although Jerry "Swa ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quite possibly the last really hard-hitting funk album from The Fatback Band – and although their first record on the Event label, a set that cooks every bit as hard as their first few for Perception! The style here is funky 45 soul at its best – lots of hard crackling drums, funky ... LP, Vinyl record album
Moments, Whatnauts, Willie & The Mighty Magnificents, & The Internationals
Great collection of New Jersey seventies soul tracks from the All Platinum label, pulled together in this original compilation package that's about as rare as any of the originals! Includes "Give a Damn" by The Internationals, "Funky 8 Corners" by Willie & the Mighty ... LP, Vinyl record album
Massively beautiful work from the great Donny Hathaway! After two studio albums that had firmly put him on the map as one of the 70s best soul talents, Atco had the genius to have Donny record this live album before very enthusiastic crowds in Hollywood and New York. The result is one of the best ... LP, Vinyl record album
A brilliant lost record from the Barry White side of the 70s soul universe – the one and only album issued by Jay Dee, and a set that's every bit as great as other White side projects with artists like Tom Brock, Danny Pearson, and Gloria Scott! Like all of those, the soulful maestro is very ... LP, Vinyl record album
