Nine Times (Disco Version) by The Moments / Do What You Feel (Disco Versioni) By The Rimshots 12" Single
Very rare UK released Funk / Northern Soul 12" single from 1975 and one of the first 12" singles to be released in the UK. Playing at 33 1/3 the sound reproduction from the deep, wide grooves is really great. It comes in a generic white paper sleeve and is missing the company sleeve that would have come with this release. You will struggle to find this record at this price anywhere else.
All Platinum label, Cat No. SOUL 001
Nine Times (Disco Version) by The Moments
Do What You Feel (Disco Version) by The Rimshots
Examined under a strong halogen lamp both sides have sleeve withdrawal marks and other faint surface marks. Parts of the playing surface appear cloudy, akin to bag-rash, but this does not affect how it plays. It gets a visul grade of Very Good.
When played (Project Turntable through a Denon system) it plays with no problems, and only two very quiet 'clicks' that are easily missed on one side prevents it from getting a play-grade of Excellent.
Both labels are clean and unmarked apart from spindle trails
GRADING (record / cover)
VERY GOOD / n/a
GRADING GUIDE - IMPORTANT!
I visually examine all records under a strong 35w halogen lamp, which shows up ALL defects.
I strictly grade my records according to the Rare Record Price Guide (RRPG), which, to me, means as follows:
MINT- Must be sealed
NEAR MINT - Totally unmarked, no scratches, not even faint 'hairlines' / sleeve withdrawal marks or any other signs of having been played.
EXCELLENT - No scratches, just signs of having been played, such as the odd faint 'hairline' sleeve withdrawal mark that is barely visible under a strong lamp, or spindle trails on the label.
VERY GOOD - The first mild scratches have begun to appear, but only very, very few.
GOOD - More scratches than Very Good and more severe, but I am confident that the record will play through without skips or sticking and will still provide a good listening experience.
FAIR - The record may not play through properly with a chance of it jumping and / or it will play with significant background noise.
POOR - It definitely won't play without skipping or sticking.
Below Near Mint I will use plus or minus with a grade to highlight fine differences.
My cover grades are EXACTLY as stated in Record Collector magazine / RRPG. Therefore, if a cover is defaced, stained or torn it CANNOT grade better than FAIR. Likewise, if any part of the contents are missing it CANNOT grade better than POOR.
All our records are dispatched using stiffeners and card mailers.
We recommend the record is cleaned properly on a high quality machine to maximise the sound quality.
