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.
To us, Positive K is one of the doper late-80's MC's that people have always slept on. Nothing hardcore or extra-underground, but still straight-up hip hop. The production on "Step Up Front" has that friendly-but-still-dope Audio Two sound, and used the "Bumpin Bus Stop" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Herbie Hancock's DJ, who'd go on to change the lives of millions of kids after his historic performance on Saturday Night Live. Though this one's a Laswell Material production, you can here a good bit of the sort of Arthur Baker breakers sort of track creeping in. 12-inch, Vinyl record
We can never remember if Andre "late of Motown" Harrell was Mr. Hyde or Dr. Jeckyll. "AM-PM" has that classic old-school freestyle lyrics over heavy beats sound. Produced and cowritten by Kurtis Blow. 12-inch, Vinyl record
In the tradition of "Heartbeat", which was also cut in a straight vocal club and a hip hop version by the West End label, Frederick Linton does a rap version of Jocelyn Brown's classic "Somebody Else's Guy" for the Vinyl Dreams label, handling the song in a bouncy old school way ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
