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.
Lost male/female duet record, with a sing song soul sound that's a bit like Peggy Scott and JoJo Benson, or other pop soul duets of the time. A bit sweet, and a bit pop/soul, but with some nice moments. Bobby Womack plays guitar and contributes the track "People Make the World", while ... LP, Vinyl record album
The one and only album by Exit 9 – an obscure funk combo who recorded this rare set for Brunswick in 1975! The group is extremely tight instrumentally – working at a very fast funky clip that's kind of similar to work by Bohannon or Sound Experience – both of whom shared Exit 9's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rootsy soul album from Solomon, and perhaps his most stripped-down recording from the old days. In a way, these MGM recordings uncover more of his soulful vocals than the Atlantic albums did, although the setting's a little bit less traditional for Solomon. Includes a number of original cuts, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brilliant work from Philly arranger Dexter Wansel – an album that moves the focus back to soul a bit more than on his Life On Mars set, but which also keeps in plenty of jazzy touches! Dexter's groove here is similar to the best work he did with other Philly vocalists in the same time – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Risque is a massive classic from Chic – a record that's worth it alone for the classic cut "Good Times" – a buoyant groover that was instantly timeless upon release, and went on to transform the sound of disco, hip hop, and many other styles to come! The whole thing's great, ... LP, Vinyl record album
An obscure later album from west coast soul group Chapter 8 – recorded after Anita Baker had left the group to move out on her own, but done for the mid 80s Beverly Glen indie, where Baker had also gotten her start as a solo act! The set's got a feel that's smooth and sophisticated – ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent album of uptown soul from Freddie – recorded after his work for Colpix, with arrangements by Belford Hendricks and Garry Sherman, in a sweet 60s New York mode! Freddie's vocals are great – much more mature than before, with a mixture of deep and sophisticated soul that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Good salsa session from the 70's, with the long jammer "Indestructible" (eleven minutes long!), plus "Hipocresia Y Falsedad", "Alma Con Alma", and "Ay No". Lots of nice grooves, and a very tight band that includes a firey twin-sax frontline, plus some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soaring work from the legendary John Coltrane Quartet – a session that was incredibly far-reaching for the time, and which originally was unissued until after the time of Coltrane's death! The record's got the group really pushing forward strongly – hitting a Love Supreme mode, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Funky Bunky from Chicago, with backing from Al Dailey on piano, Billy Butler and Carl Lynch on guitar, Wilbur Bascomb on bass, Jimmy Johnson on drums, Al Chalk on percussion, and Jeff Bova on ARP string ensemble and ARP 2600. The sound's quite different from his Cadet albums – but not bad ... LP, Vinyl record album
The one astounding studio album of proto punk/abrasive psych genius from the Monks – a true masterpiece if their ever was one, a record that's been ripped off by myriad more famous groups in both the mainstream and rock underground of the past 40 years! The group's status as discharged G.I.' ... LP, Vinyl record album
