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.
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.

Chuck Brown and his Soul Searchers group are past the arch jazzy funk of their days on Sussex Records – and they're heading more towards that ensemble sound that would drive the DC Go Go scene in the early 80s.

Not really the "blues" promised in the title – but a great little collection of New Orleans soul, featuring loads of great tracks from the earliest years of the genre! The sound here is often somewhat stripped-down and rootsy – not that "fake" New Orleans sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album
An obscure bit of jazzy funk – recorded in Belgium by Roland Kluger, who you might know from other groovy work of the time – with work from Doug Lucas and The Sugar Sisters too! There's lots of tight grooves with good guitars, nice drums, and not too many vocals – a bit disco, ... LP, Vinyl record album
