12-inch, Vinyl record

✈

(Cover has a bent corner in the bottom right.)

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.

Uptown/MCA, 1988. Near Mint-
One of Guy's first big hits, and proof that Teddy was setting his crossover sights on the right target! The extended mix shows the way that Riley was determined to get R&B back onto the dancefloor in a big way – and the bonus beats are nice too! 12-inch, Vinyl record

War/Lonnie Jordan

Galaxy/Junkie To My Music
MCA, 1979. Near Mint-
A split single from War, and lead singer Lonnie Jordan. "Galaxy" is a later funky classic by the group – strutting out with some sweet funky riffing, ensemble vocals, and a powerful groove that's always been a dancefloor pleaser! "Junkie To My Music" has a syncopated ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

EMI, 1985. Near Mint- (pic cover)
Think what you want about the Pet Shop Boys, this tune's still got a simple charm that we love – one of the last gasps of early 80s British pop seeping into American club – and a nicely spoken lyric that still beats out most of what was going on in US pop at the time! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Karen Young

Hot Shot (voc, inst)
West End, 1978. Very Good+
Karen's big cut, the only one we'll remember her for, and a big campy track in its day. Served up here on an original West End single, with vocal and instrumental versions both stretching past the 8 minute mark. 12-inch, Vinyl record

Motown, 1979. Very Good
The title track to Diana Ross' classic album with Ashford & Simpson – served up here in a special disco mix! The single's backed by a track produced by Hal Davis, lifted from the Thank God It's Friday soundtrack. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Roadrunner, 1981. Very Good (pic cover)
An unlikely, but huge influence on the Chicago and Detroit house scenes of the 80s! Liaisons Dangereuses were a German combo with a sound that was part post-punk, part post-prog – electronic-based music that was somewhere in the neighborhood of Cabaret Voltaire and DAF. And like those two ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
