This Is What Love Looks Like (voc, inst)

7-inch (Item 946759) Timmion (Finland), 2019 — Condition: Near Mint-

Funky drums, descending horns, and riffing guitar really set the scene here in a great way – giving the track a gentle groove, but one that's nice and warm too – a perfect foil for the deep soul vocals of Carlton Jumel Smith, a singer who may well be one of the best discoveries so far on the ultra-hip Timmion label! The whole thing feels like some southern soul burner from way back – and even the instrumental is mighty nice!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Test 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.

One of those singles that lets you know that they DO still make 'em like they used to – at least if you're talking about the kind of moody harmony soul singles that we love so much from the start of the 70s – from the slightly fragile vocals right down to the slow funk of the drums! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

A hard-hitting romper from trumpeter Jukka Eskola – a tune that has the trumpeter working with the well-named Soul Trio – in a groove that feels like some lost jukebox jazz single from the 60s, with the trumpet popping nicely alongside a soaring Hammond!
