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.
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.
Beautiful work from John Cale – proof that in his years after The Velvet Underground, he was one hell of a talented solo act! The songs are all wonderfully written, and supported by orchestrations that are light, but which bring some overall depth to the record – a sense of class, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
A rollicking mix of soul and rock elements – with titles that include "Cat Fever", "What's Wrong With Me", "Special Care", "Soul Child", "Place In The Country", and "A Little While Later". LP, Vinyl record album
Pre-Muswell Hillbillies, but taking a turn towards the folksier and rootsier sound that they used in their first few albums of the 70s. The strength here is that the band is still working off the lean style forged on Village Green Preservation Society – and most of the cuts have a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
The initial uttering from the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – a group with a heady sound that definitely lives up to their name! There's less "pop art" going on here than just trippy psych – served up at a level that makes the group one of the best bigger label ... LP, Vinyl record album
Who'd have thought that Chess would be the US company to release this nice bit of groovy psych pop by Britain's Status Quo – but then again, who cares? Includes their fantastic track "Pictures Of Matchstick Men", plus "Ice In The Sun", "Elizabeth Dreams", "S ... LP, Vinyl record album
Man and machine – a perfect summation of the Kraftwerk genius, delivered perfectly on this classic late 70s set! The album's got a bit more punch than some of their previous efforts – almost a not towards the dancefloor at times, yet hardly the disco you'd get from other groups of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
