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.
A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.

and will most likely play with surface noise throughout.
May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.
Additional Marks & Notes

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 great little album of dramatic pop tunes – notable not only for Mel Carter's richly vibratic vocals, but also for sublime early production work by Nick DeCaro!

Imperial LP built around Mel Carter's big 60's pop soul hit "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me", with some arrangements by Nick De Caro, and a good LA 60's studio soul sound.

Man, that east coast harmony sound couldn't miss in the 70s – as proven by the huge AM radio success of New York City! The band wasn't the greatest harmony group in the world – although they did feature John Brown, who'd cut his teeth in the Five Satins – but when you teamed them ... LP, Vinyl record album
The subtitle for this says "The Luxuriously Slow Moods of...", and it's right! Despite a racy nude on the cover, reclining on a cool chair and smelling a flower, this music is more sleepy than sexy.
