LP (Item 988250) Atlantic, Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Very Good

(In a textured flip-back cover, with some edge wear, lightly bent corners, center splits in the spine and bottom seam, and small stains at the opening on back.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.

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.

Mercury, 1964. Very Good-
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Forget all of Brook's throwaway kiddie pop singles – and check out this album of incredible power and beauty!

Dancin' & Lovin'
Atlantic, 1980. Very Good+
There's plenty of lovin here, but even more dancin too – thanks to production and arrangements from disco maestro Michael Zager!

Aretha Now
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good-
One of a handful of crucial early Aretha Franklin albums for Atlantic – and a key example of her genius pairing with arranger Arif Mardin!

Great Ray Charles
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+
More of a jazz album than the early vocal singles of Ray Charles – but a set that definitely is as great as promised by the title!

Arif Mardin

Journey
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good
A wicked little solo set from one of Atlantic Records' hippest talents in the 70s! Arif Mardin's best known for his work supporting some of Atlantic's best soul starts – Aretha Franklin most famously, and a host of others – but here, he steps out as a maestro on his own – working ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good
Given that Atlantic's big claim to fame with Aretha was that they took her from being a supper club jazz singer and made her a hard soul act, we've always been a bit surprised at the way they chose to hook her up with some Bacharach tunes after her first few sides – giving her a classier ...

Roberta Flack

First Take
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
What can we say? We've heard this one a million times, it sold over a million copies – but it's still incredible! The record is Roberta's first, and it features her in a mellow trio format, augmented by some occasional larger arrangements by William Fischer. At most points, though, the ...

Let Your Mind Be Free
Turbo, 1976. Very Good+
The second album by this lost East Coast funk act – and although not as totally excellent as their first, still a very nice record that's filled with choppy up-tempo grooves, and some nice dancefloor soul. There's plenty of funky keyboards in the mix – moog, clavinet, and Arp – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cuba Gooding

Love Dancer
Motown, 1979. Very Good+
A tremendous solo outing from Cuba Gooding – a record that not only shows his strength as a lead singer away from The Main Ingredient – but one that also shows that he really knows how to groove as well! The album's produced by Michael Smith, and has a vibe that's a bit different than ... LP, Vinyl record album
