CODE: SP 4195, 1969
VINYL: NM- [VIRTUALLY UNPLAYED]
COVER: NM- [SHELF WEAR]
Shango was a rock quartet in the late 1960s, led by Tommy Reynolds, later of Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds, which included actor Stuart Margolin.
Shango's best-known recording was a 1969 song, a modest novelty hit
called "Day After Day (It's Slippin' Away)" from their self-titled album
Shango. Produced by Jerry Riopelle and co-written by Margolin, Riopelle and Reynolds, it mocked contemporary doomsday predictions that California was destined to be destroyed (presumably very soon) by an earthquake. It was sung in Calypso style:
- Day after day
- More people come to L.A.
- Shh! Don't you tell anybody
- The whole place slippin' away
It was later adapted into a car ad:
- Day after day
- More people drive Chevrolet...

Goldmine-inspired Grading System
Vinyl Disk Grading Scale [VISUAL]
° New SS (New Still Sealed) - New store stock or otherwise unopened, factory fresh product
° NM (Near Mint) - Essentially new or near new with only one or two small insignificant visual anomalies
° Exc (Excellent or Very Good++) - Still a very nice record with all or nearly all of its original gloss but may have a few more light surface marks, hairlines, needle tracks or the like which won't materially effect play
° VG+ (Very Good+) - A really nice specimen, but used record that may have a series of light scuffs or scratches. It may play with a few pops, but has no serious problems...still glossy with a lot of life left in it.
° VG (Very Good) - An acceptable, well-played record that still should sound good, but may have moderate surface noise, pops, etc.
° G (Good) - Not actually good at all but probably will play through but with much in a way of surface noise, pops, crackles, etc. Still, will have no cracks, chips or the like

Caring for your vinyl records
Most LPs and singles released after the early fifties are composed of
polyvinyl materials and are more durable than it's predecessors. When
cleaning vinyl records, I recommend a 50/50 solution of isopropyl alcohol
(70% by Vol.) or denatured alcohol (fewer impurities) and filtered or
distilled water (again, fewer impurities). A few claim that alcohol is
damaging to vinyl... 70% or more by volume strength and continual contact for
a long period of time, maybe... but not in the recommended dilution. Alcohol
is water soluble and leaves little or no residue. A mild detergent, such as
Johnson and Johnson Baby Bath, can be used in small amounts with water with
no rinsing necessary. Photo Flo is a wetting agent used in photography to
help reduce water spots and marks during the rinsing of negatives. A couple
of drops in the above solutions also help in reducing residual deposits.
The solution should be applied with a soft, clean washcloth, wiping in a
circular motion with the grooves. Rinse the cloth often in the solution and
replace with a fresh mixture when needed. I recommend thoroughly drying the
record with a soft, clean towel... this further reduces residue left behind.
Try not to get the labels wet.
Dirty covers and labels are best left alone. If the cover is laminated or
glossy, a damp towel can be used... A mild furniture polish does nicely too.
Marks or writing on the cover may be able to be removed with a rubber eraser.
Lighter fluid (naphtha) or even hair spray works great on pen marks.
Permanent marker can be removed by marking over it with a dry erase marker,
then wipe with a dry cloth... It really works! Stickers, labels, tape and
such can be removed by heating the area with a hair dryer. The heat breaks
down the adhesive and makes it softer and easier to remove sticker and all
without a great risk of damaging the cover or sleeve. Sticker residue can be
removed with most citus-based cleaners or lighter fluid (naphtha). Again, I
stress that these only work well on glossy covers. Matte finish cover and
label marks are usually set. You stand a chance of removing part of the print
or color and making the situation worse.
