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.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.
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.

A fantastic meeting of the minds – as director Jim Jarmusch makes a film that's a nod to the old martial arts films of the 70s that inspired the Wu-Tang Clan in their music – and RZA gets a chance to contribute to the soundtrack, with help from the Clan as well! The music is maybe the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Produced, arranged and mixed by Prince Quick Mix & The Undercover Brother. 10 tracks in all, with a sort of jeep beat East coast feel, all pretty short, which we guess is why the cover says "hip hop elements". Titles include "Da Bridge Beats", "Rocket Neats", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mostly produced by Wyclef, with a couple of beats by Clark Kent, A Kid Called Roots and Salaam Remi, and a few nice cuts like "Second Round KO", one of the tracks in his battle with LL, that has stood up well to the test of time. Other tracks include "Patriots", "I Honor ... LP, Vinyl record album
A once underappreciated later effort from the mighty Run DMC – with slightly harder hitting beats, and an overall tougher style – and it's ultimately the crew's last solid beginning-to-end LP! A worthy set that includes "Mary, Mary", "Beats To The Rhyme", "Run's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Volume 8 in the long running Cracker Beats series includes ten tracks of looped instrumentals using mid-tempo breakbeat samples, without scratching or vocals, for your mixing or freestyling pleasure.

A real killer from Hammond hero Charles Earland – a record that stretches out as much as his studio gems for Prestige, but in a slightly different way!
