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.

Two excellent funky cuts from Eric Burdon and War! You probably know "Spill The Wine" – the Latin-tinged tune that made all them a lot of money, and which still sounds surprisingly great today – but "Magic Mountain" is also another winner, with a heavy funky beat at ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A beautiful holiday single from James! The track is sweet and soulful – with a slow raspy vocal that's as hip as anything that James ever cut, and infused with all the social consciousness of 1970. Not only that, it's packaged in an original pic sleeve, which is every bit as great! 7-inch, Vinyl record
