Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Wonderfully romping grooves from one of Motown's first great groups – a stunning set of tracks that really put The Vandellas on the map!

The Temptations in a mellow mood, but one that's still plenty darn swinging – thanks to some jazzy arrangements from HB Barnum, Oliver Nelson, and Don Costa!

The Temptations doing The Temptations and doing it pretty darn well – further proof that the group just kept on going with greatness, even during the years of their lesser fame!

Rick James hits a smoother sort of style here – one that's almost a compressed take on the mainstream version of funk first crafted on his earlier records, fused into a more radio-friendly approach for the Prince generation! The sound's actually not that bad – and the record has an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mid 80s magic from the Temptations – a record that shouldn't be as great as it is, given the lame title and cover image – but which still has the group working at a top level!

The Temptations' former lead singer's first solo record with a huge 80s groove album, especially considering the mighty title track – the duet with Siedah Garrett and it's sly reggae influenced bassline and crisp popping beat. This is one of those records we appreciate a lot more with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A second solo set from Temptation Dennis Edwards – a great set of mellow modern soul, with a very 80s approach to the production and arrangements. There's a bit of 80s production in the mix – handled by Dennis Lambert in a strong way that never overcomes the vocals – and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
An obscure Motown group from the end of the 70s – 21st Creation had a soaring uptempo group sound that reminds us of some of the more successful disco hits of Tavares from the same time.

Early Cameo at their best – tight, funky, and totally out of sight!

A wonderful early record from Bohannon – and with a very different feel than usual!
