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.
"I See" from Medina Green, with a clean, almost deep house, piano line – a nice change from the extra-heavy feel of a lot of the late 90s underground hip hop – and, of course, conscious lyrics to match. Backed with more knowledge on "Best Part" from Self Scientific. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Two classic electro-jazz instrumental tracks with vocoder. "Rain Forest" bridges the gap between breaking electro beats and radio friendly smooth jazz, "Sound Chaser" has a nice, slow tempo electro feel. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Single from RZA in his early days as Prince Rakeem, before any Wu-Tang releases, but with a nod to the future in the titles. It's sounds surprisingly nice in this day and age. RZA's delivery is loud, measured and clear – like a lot of late 80s, early 90s MC's. The beats are straight up, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
