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.
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.
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice late 60's session by Juliette Greco, featuring the sexy French singer backed by two different orchestras – those of Alain Goraguer and Francois Rauber. The LP's got a nice mix of material, including a lot of songs we've never heard of, and which seem to be exclusive to this LP. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Another one of their crazy LPs, which are sometimes hard to find amidst the pop stuff they normally did. This one's got them doing some originals and some standards, augmented by a tight little ensemble of three percussionists and one bassist. The added instruments drive their piano stuff – ...

Man, this moog sure is happy! And who wouldn't be? The groovy lil' instrument's got some excellent backings here – all spare, rhythmic, and filled with cool electronic effects. The overall level of the electronics is more sophisticated than Perry-Kingsley, but in the end the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice work from the offbeat easy maestro Irving Taylor – a man with a good sense of humor, as you can guess from the cover – and song titles that include "Separate Bar Stools", "Hawaiian Worm Raiser", "In A Cafeteria With You", "Prison Interior ... LP, Vinyl record album
Key transitional work from Hugo – a record that has some of the groovy touches of his late 60s work, and some of the moogy touches of his 70s period! Not all tunes feature moog, but a few have some excellent work on the instrument by Eddie Kalehoff – and those that don't feature some ... LP, Vinyl record album
