Reggae Greats (UK pressing)

LP (Item 940627) Island (UK), Mid 70s — Condition: Near Mint-

A great collection of some of the great soulful reggae Toots and The Maytals licensed to Island in the mid 70s, with all the enduring hits: "54-46 That's My Number", "Reggae Got Soul", "Funky Kingston", "Sweet & Dandy", "Time Tough" and "Pressure Drop".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s UK pressing.)

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.

With the rawer vocal approach of the roots movement, it's easy to forget that loads of Jamaica's finest singers were heavily influenced by American soul.

A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – ... LP, Vinyl record album
