This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.
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.
A seminal bit of Chicago House goes mainstream! JM Silk featured tight work by Steve Silk Hurley – producing, arranging, and mixing. Steve takes Isaac Hayes' "I Can't Turn Around", flips it on its end, and pulls it apart into a skeleton of beats, keyboards, basslines, and vocals ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
2 sweet funky dancefloor tracks from Ndugu Chancler and the Chocolate Jam Co – both of them served up with some nice jazzy touches! "Chocolate Jam" is a groover with lots of bass on the bottom, plenty of vamping horns, and mixed male/female vocals calling off the tune in a party ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Not the kind of track you'd expect from the Chi-Lites, but it's 1983 after all. With a mid tempo bouncing 80s groove like Lakeside or the Gap Band, this track was a minor comeback for the group on dancelfloors and skating rinks alike. 12-inch, Vinyl record
