then checkout as usual.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

One of the Dramatics' best albums, and a real masterpiece of 70's group soul!

Classic New Orleans soul by this great girl group – much rawer than some of their more easily available recordings, and with great arrangements and music by Joe Jones!

We've got to admit, we don't know much about Angelo Bond, but we've always had kind of a soft spot for this nice overlooked album of 70s soul tracks recorded for ABC.

A strange little soul group from the UK – one that has a mix of influences that include Jamaican soul, American pop, and even a bit of gospel. The overall sound is a bit strange, but kind of spiritually warm in the best parts, with a message-related approach to soul. Titles include "Pea ... LP, Vinyl record album
Surprisingly nice work! Like the rest of Solomon's post-Atlantic LPs, this one has a sound that's different than his classic work, but which also exposes a whole new side of his talent, and range of vocals that didn't always show up for Atlantic. Solomon arranged and produced here, and the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic funky orchestral stuff from this great Chicago soul arranger!
