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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Solo guitar by Joe Pass – a beautiful little album that's a perfect showcase for the new sensitivity in his music during his years at Pablo records!

A nicely sensitive set from guitarist Joe Pass – hardly the usual bag of Ellington-alike material, and instead a small group outing that unlocks a newly introspective side of Duke's compositions! Joe's working here with Ray Brown on bass and Bobby Durham on drums – and the feel overall ... LP, Vinyl record album
This album's got a very telling title – as Joe's guitar is working here with bigger arrangements by Bob Florence, backings that go for a mod 60s sound! Florence uses a range of instrumentation on the set, plus some occasional vocal choruses, all in a mode that's got some very nice mid 60s LA ... LP, Vinyl record album
An album dedicated to the great Django Reinhardt – but one that also comes across with plenty of west coast touches!

This album's a "partner" to the duo's other MPS album, Conversation, which (like this one) was also recorded during a one-week engagement at the Domicile nightclub in Munich. The group features great rhythm work from bassist Isla Eckinger, pianist Rob Pronk, and drummer Todd Canedy. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Stunning free jazz work from Japan!

Most of the record is free and ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the hippest piano trio sessions ever on MPS – a bold little set that features the British pianist John Taylor in a trio with Tony Levin on drums and Chris Lawrence on bass! Taylor's got a style that's quite unique – with bits of early Chick Corea-esque lyricism, and touches of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful sounds from pianist Monty Alexander – and a record that really has him finding his own groove! Monty had recorded often in the 60s, and usually mixed his Caribbean roots with a bit of American soul jazz – but it really took the MPS label to help him find a spot to set himself ... LP, Vinyl record album
The funky fusion classic from guitarist Volker Krieger!

LP, Vinyl record album
Killer keyboards from the legendary George Duke – and one of his most righteous albums for the MPS label! The album's a spectacular set that showcases both sides of Duke's genius at the time – his spacey, soulful approach to a laidback tune – and his more jamming styles on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
