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.

Early solo work by Diana – mostly in a mode that steps off nicely from her late work with the Supremes, thanks to some expansive production by the Ashford & Simpson team (who also wrote most of the cuts), and arrangements by Paul Riser that mix strings and soul into the sophisticated pre-d ...
