Cookin’ with the Miracles" is by far the hardest to find of all Miracles early albums (and - sure enough - now it is also the hardest one to find on compact disc). The album is interesting for more than one reason: first, it lacks charting hit singles, so many people are unaware of the nature of the material, which is nothing short of amazing! Secondly, the album sports some of the most intense and raw R&B vocalizing Smokey & the Crew ever attempted: The result is one smoldering R&B piece, which is a must for any early Motown collector. And then, there is that classic, hilarious, to-the-point cover showing the six Miracles with their pots and pans. For my money, this is the best R&B album cover, ever!

·       CONDITION:

 

·       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)            CAUTION: The vinyl is in barely FAIR condition and probably more interesting as a conversation piece and historical artifact than as a viable recording suitable for repeated, continued playing. Nevertheless, the record plays fine without skipping or “sticking”, but with considerable, annoying and audible hiss, surface noise and clicks and pops. This record WAS play-graded.

 

(b)            This album is presented here mostly for its historical value and as a very rare item, which can be exceedingly difficult to find in any other condition

 

(c)             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!

 

(d)            Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!

 

 

·       COVER

 

THE COVER IS ABOUT VERY GOOD- / very good minus / (VG-).

 

The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:

 

-         Cover has some visible ring wear; 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 5.

 

-         Cover has a few tiny wrinkles along the spine

 

-         Back cover has some light yellowish stains, probably from exposure to humidity.

 

-         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.

 

-         Cover has some writing on its back side (name of the previous owner written in blue ballpoint pen, about ¼ x 3 inches in size)

 

-         Cover has some fraying/wear along the top and bottom seam

 

-         Cover has two corners slightly worn / frayed / bent (just a beginning of the split seam)

 

NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER:

 

-         No cut-out (drill) holes.

-         No cut-out corners

-         No saw-marks or indents

-         No writing

-         No stamps

-         No peel-off marks

-         No mold or mildew spots

-         No stickers or labels

-         No water damage

-         No warping

-         No wax, glue, paint or liquid drops on the cover

-         No bar codes
