Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight 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.
One of Roland Kirk's classic early recordings for Mercury, and the kind of stuff that has him mixing his wild reed playing with more traditional hardbop structures. Most of the tracks are quartet sides, with piano, bass, and drums backing Kirk up – but the real focus is on Kirks solos, which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
An overlooked 60s gem from Oscar Peterson – one of his great sides for Limelight Records, and possibly the most soulful of the bunch! The group's a trio – with either Sam Jones or Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums – and they've got a really great feel, one that's a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
Play the hits Les does – but in a very groovy way! He's got a nice little combo on the record that includes Plas Johnson and Seldon Powell on saxes, plus some Latin percussion by Johnny Pacheco and Ron Rich. The great Leroy Vinnegar rounds out the group on bass, providing the rich strong ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wickedly great album from Dizzy Gillespie – one of his most striking sessions of the early 60s, and a perfect blend of his Latin and modern modes! The album features an extended suite – composed and arranged by Lalo Schifrin, who'd just begun working with Dizzy at the time, and who ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Houston Person's first forays into the jazz funk sound that other Prestige Records players were picking up at the time – a sweet little set with some nicely extended tunes! The groove here is a bit harder than some of Person's previous soul jazz sets – with some tightly snapping ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the few American albums issued by this Dutch funky flautist who cut more than his share of heavy discs on the other side of the Atlantic. Hinze was part of the lowland funk scene that included John Lee & Gerry Brown (both of whom are on this record), and his music shares a similar ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fabulous stuff – one of the legendary albums that funky flute player Bobbi Humphrey cut with producer Larry Mizell! The record's a prime example of the Mizell genius at work – as Larry's arranged these fantastic backdrops for Bobbi's flute – soaring keyboard lines, layers and ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little live album from soul jazz vibist Johnny Lytle – and maybe one of his best of the 60s! The set was recorded at the Village Gate, and it mixes Lytle's usual blend of vibes and organ with a nice touch of Latin percussion – which really expands the sound in a great way! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Funky keyboards galore – and one of the greatest records ever from this legendary Brazilian jazz talent! The album follows nicely off Deodato's Prelude classic for CTI – and like that one, this set's built on long-flowing tunes that rise and fall with a wonderful sense of rhythm – ... LP, Vinyl record album
The first LP by this stormin' organ jazz combo from Chicago, featuring the great Odell Brown on organ, Artee (Duke) Payne on alto, and Thomas Purvis on tenor. Includes loads of great tracks, like their originals "Enchilada Joe", "Raising the Roof", and "A Cool ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rare work by Willis Jackson – recorded in 1971, but only issued in this 1982 pressing! The group on the set is great – with Boogaloo Joe Jones on guitar, Carl Wilson on organ, and Buddy Caldwell on congas – and although the album was recorded in the height of the jazz funk years ...
