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.
Spencer Willams famously wrote "Basin Street Blues" and "I Ain't Got Nobody" – and finally gets a bit of time in the spotlight here – on an instrumental set of his own compositions! LP, Vinyl record album
A beautifully restrained West Coast session, with a very "soft sell" on jazz by a haunting quintet that includes Paul Horn on woodwinds, Tommy Loy on French horn, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Shelly Manne on drums, and Don Bagley on bass. The tracks are nearly all originals – with titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pretty cool work from west coast trumpeting brothers Pete & Conte Candoli – released to coincide with their appearance in Bell, Book, & Candle, where they worked in a small jazz combo fronted by Jack Lemmon (as a warlock!) on bongos! The style of the tracks is similar to those in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bandleader Hal March put together this nice set of moody arrangements to focus on the solo talent of a young Paul Horn. Horn plays flute and alto here, and while the set's not exactly Charlie Parker With Strings, it's not a bad bit of tracks that show a different side of Horn's talent than shows ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very swingin' instrumental version of the score to this goofy musical, arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, with a batch of players like Clark Terry, Oliver Nelson, Phil Woods, and Joe Newman – so you know the whole thing's tight and groovy. Includes nice renditions of "Grand Old ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured ... LP, Vinyl record album
An album of dark and subtle beauty – and still one of our favorite Miles Davis albums of all time! The set's not as earth-shattering as some of Davis' other work of the 60s, but that's why we like it so much – because the emerging genius of the group with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A legendary album from the 70s funk scene – and one of the crowning achievements of keyboard maestro Eumir Deodato! Deodato got his start during the bossa years of the 60s – where his sophisticated charts were already enough to make his career a landmark – but in the following ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great step in the evolution of Ron Carter from brilliant bassist to even more brilliant leader! The album's cut at a time when Carter was really moving his instrument from the back to the front – playing piccolo bass more than usual, and plucking with a pronounced groove, even in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mellow smooth jazz and modern soul from trumpeter Leslie Drayton – working here with his group Fun, which features vocals by Barbara Morrison, alto sax by Curtis Peagler, and keyboards by Billy Childs. Most of the tracks are a bit too tinny to come off well – but there's a few nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
An extremely great session from Eddie Costa and Art Farmer – arguably more so, because the cover and label make you think it's going to be a cheap knockoff! In what is an odd meeting of players, especially for the label, Eddie's piano and vibes meet up with Art's trumpet, the alto of Phil ... LP, Vinyl record album
