The sublime Time Capsule remains Weldon Irvine's most fully realized and influential recording. Assembled as a kind of musical scrapbook documenting the thought patterns and belief systems of the early '70s, it nevertheless boasts a surprising vitality and timelessness thanks to luminous funk grooves that anticipate the latter-day emergence of acid jazz. Irvine also rhymes over several tracks, further cementing his influence on successive generations of hip-hop. A profoundly righteous spirituality winds through all eight of Time Capsule's performances, assaying both the affection ("Soul Sisters") and anger ("Watergate") vying for control of post-Woodstock America. Irvine's searing keyboard and piano playing further capture the moment in question, deftly balancing between beatitude and bitterness.

·                               CONDITION:
 
·                               THE RECORD
 
(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we  grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
 
(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS EXCELLENT. This is one of those albums that are somewhat difficult to grade. It is somewhere between VG++ and NEAR MINT, just a notch below NEAR MINT. A few light abrasions ARE visible, but they are extremely shallow, superficial  and only moderately visually distracting (nothing significant).For the most part, the vinyl looks impeccable without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
 
(b)          The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
 
(c)           Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!
 
 
·                               THE COVER
 
THE COVER IS ABOUT VERY GOOD+(+)
 
The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:
 
-        Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and  10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 4
 
-        Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered sections, which closely follow the contour of the record),  probably caused by friction or by rubbing against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.
 
-        Cover shows some light yellowing on back side, apparently from aging (nothing significant)
 
-        Cover has a few tiny wrinkles along the seams  (nothing significant)
 
-        Cover has some visible fraying/tattering on the bottom seam and spine (very close to splitting)
 
-        Visible shelf wear noted on the top seam.
 
-        Cover has two corners slightly worn / dinged (nothing significant)
 
-        The cover has a few tiny scratch marks on the front side (BARELY VISIBLE)
 
 
NO OTHER VISIBLE FLAWS OR IMPERFECTIONS ON THE  COVER
