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.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A totally great Grover Washington record – and with 25 years behind us, we really now realize how fantastic all the early Kudu sessions really were!

One of the best by the Zimbo Trio! The record features the group's core bossa sound, backed by a set of larger arrangements that help them go to town nicely on more modern MPB material – like Gilberto Gil's "Domingo No Parque", Chico Buarque's "Januaria" and "Roda ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic Chicago soul recorded under the aegis of the great Bill Bunky Sheppard!
