Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play,
but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic,
with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a
cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner
and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay,
though probably with surface noise.
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.
Great early stuff by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A groovy groovy treasure! The work of The Swingle Singers is well known to any fan of 60s French tunes – as their groundbreaking approach to vocalese had a huge influence on other pop, easy, and soundtrack work of the time. This nicely-done set features jazz scat versions of tunes by all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Early work by Dakota – recorded in the years before her more famous sides for Capitol. The album's got Dakota in a similar late nite style – working with arrangements that are heavy on the strings, but still steeped in soul – mostly standards, but a well chosen batch that are ...

A beautiful album of dark-hued vocals – sung by Johnny Hartman with a quality that's as smokey as the image of him with a cigarette on the cover! The album set a whole new standard for male vocal jazz in the 60s – and is a distillation and refinement of earlier ideas in music by Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Although the world always remembers Johnny Hartman best for his Impulse recordings with Coltrane, we've always dug some of his earlier stuff – like this album – because the sound's a bit rawer, and the style's got more of a kick! The magical Hartman voice is presented in two great ... LP, Vinyl record album
A way hipper record than you'd guess from a group with a name like "Rare Silk" – and some of the best group jazz vocalese recorded in the 80s! The group is a quartet of voices – 3 female, 1 male – and they come together in a style that's far less hokey than most of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A mature side by Bobby Darin - featuring him taking on some of the biggest Broadway tunes of his generation – and doing a pretty darn good job as well! Arrangements are by Shorty Rogers and Perry Botkin, both of whom bring a hip flair to the proceedings – a sound that's usually a fair ... LP, Vinyl record album
A haunting set from Cassandra Wilson – freely creative, and a good example of the way that she was one of the few singers pushing the boundaries of jazz vocal expression in the 80s! The set's never too over the top, but it does feature lots of artful touches on the instrumentation – ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the last albums that Johnny Hartman recorded in his all-too-short career – and a relatively laidback session that really shows his talents with a ballad! All tunes here have that magnificent Hartman vocal approach firmly in place – that deep-toned, mellifluous style that really ... LP, Vinyl record album
