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.
A beautiful little fusion set from guitarist John Stowell – one that dances along at a really breezy pace, thanks to a nice "bottom" from drummer Billy Hart and percussionist Dom Um Romao! Stowell's practically by himself at the top of the set – playing with amazing control ... LP, Vinyl record album
A unique later session from trombonist Jimmy Knepper – produced as a Japanese-only release in the 70s by saxophonist Lew Tabackin – who's also a key member of the group! Given that Knepper's best known for his sharp-toned sounds with Charles Mingus in previous decades, this later set ... LP, Vinyl record album
Freewheeling Cecil – in his best 70s mode – recorded live in Austria in 1976, playing beautifully on a Bosendorfer Grand piano! Taylor works wonders with the instrument – giving it a pyrotechnic workout during the extended performance on the set. The album features one long ... LP, Vinyl record album
A quirky little session from Ken McIntyre – one of his few great records after his re-emergence in the mid 70s. The album features McIntyre's Vibrations group – a sextet with trumpeter Terumasa Hino firmly in the lead, and featuring work by Andy Vega on conga, Andrei Strobert on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great album of electric fusion by this breezy jazz group from San Francisco. The sound has a lot of touches of Brazilian jazz, accented with some freer post-Coltrane reed solos, and a nice choppy approach in parts. A few tracks feature some nice wordless vocals by Lin McPhillips – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A killer set from keyboardist Jeff Lorber – an artist who really had a lot to offer back here in his early years! Unlike some of Lorber's later albums, which could always be a bit too smooth, this one's got a sharp-edged groove and a stripped-down quartet lineup – a group that mixes ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strong batch of tracks from Jackie McLean's soulful son – recorded in a style that's similar to the one that Jackie was using during the early 70s – often aided on record by Rene's youthful playing! There's a bit of modal soul jazz on the set, plus some freer searching – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic bit of funky guitar by Harvey Mandel – similar to some of Dennis Coffey's early work in that it's got full on guitar power, very much inspired by heavy rock, filtered through an approach that's also got plenty of funk in it! The killer track here is the classic "Baby ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strange little album from Charles Bobo Shaw – one that almost comes across with some of the crossover experimental touches that were showing up on the New York scene in the early 80s! Shaw's working here with Joseph Bowie and the Human Arts Ensemble – but the album's also heavily ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strangely beautiful record recorded during Pee Wee Russell's brief comeback as a modernist folk hero during the 60s. As with a number of his other sessions from the time, Russell's tone is amazingly angular, with strange off-kilter notes that expose the genius that had been lurking for years ...
