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.
A wonderful early album by The Dells – famous not just for the music, but also for the cover image – which shows two white lovers clasping on the beach, one of the key examples in soul music when an artist got pushed off the cover in the hopes of selling the record to a wider audience! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brilliant 70s work by The Dells – and an album that has the group reinventing themselves wonderfully, by moving over to Philly and recording with Norman Harris! As he did with so many other artists at the time, Harris took the group firmly into the clubs with a soaring Sigma sort of groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
One thing about The Dells: They were always great! Even here, at the end of the 70s, in settings that are less perfect than their classic work for Cadet or Vee Jay, the group still sound wonderful – more daring vocally than most other harmony groups at the time, cutting through some smoother ... LP, Vinyl record album
An incredible combination of the two sides of The Dells – a set that has them presenting older tracks and newer material – all with sublime arrangements from the fantastic Charles Stepney, who'd really been transforming their sound from the There Is album onward! Stepney brings in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic work from The Dells – a group who never seemed to stop turning out greatness – even as they made a shift between different labels in the 70s! This set's got The Dells moving from Chess Records to Mercury – but there's still a strong indie vibe to the set – thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of The Dells' best albums from this period – and a real Cadet studios masterpiece, thanks to some incredibly groovy arrangements by Charles Stepney! The sound's a bit like some of the Rotary Connection albums put together under Stepney's supervision – but given that the group is ... LP, Vinyl record album
A masterpiece of baroque soul! The great Charles Stepney is at the controls on this one, and he's serving up a stellar brew of high-concept soul tracks, perfectly suited for The Dells' amazing vocals. Nearly every cut is a pop tune – like "Love Is Blue", "Whiter Shade Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of David's smooth soul albums for Mercury, with jazzy production by Wayne Henderson that's in line with the best work he was doing at the time. David's got a strange voice that's got the depth of a baritone, but the sweetness of a tenor. It's a little tough to get used to at first, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice early 70's record by Joe, with a mix of 70's funk tracks and tracks that have more of his classic southern soul sound from the 60's. Joe's raspy voice is as beautiful as always, and he's got some really sweet material on here like "Cat's Got Her Tongue", "All The Heaven A Man ... LP, Vinyl record album
A super huge hit for Donna Summer – a disco classic as well as a pop crossover smash! The album was produced by disco powerhouse Giorgio Moroder, and featured the hits "Hot Stuff", "Bad Girls", and "Dim All The Lights". Plus the songs "On My Honor", ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the last great pop records from Donna Summer – thanks to super huge radio and video play for the title cut – and to a huge amount of tuneful tracks put together by producer/arranger Michael Omartin! By this point, Summer isn't trying to fool anyone that she's a deeper soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Amazing is right! Timi's one of the great under-rated Uptown Soul talents of the 60s, and this is one of her best records. The album features stunning production, in the best Mercury pop soul style of the 60s – with Quincy Jones at the controls, and Bobby Scott arranging and conducting. ... LP, Vinyl record album
