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.
The album's got a sultry cover, but it turns out to be a surprising swinger – one of Julie London's great sessions done with Jimmy Rowles – put together with a bit more punch than some of her 50s records, and featuring some nicely playful instrumentation too! Jimmy's at his best here, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A landmark album in 50s vocal jazz – spare, moody, and evocative tunes from Julie London – sung in a stripped-down setting that few other singers would dare at the time!

Hip early work from Julie London – with full jazz orchestra backing by Russ Garcia, whose soundscapes are perfect for that dreamy style of singing she was using at the time – a blend of the sublime and sad, floating along with almost effortless ease, but hiding a huge wellspring of ...

The straighter side of Bobby Troup – a set that has the singer working through a batch of tunes that are mostly standards, instead of his usual compositions – but still doing equally well in the process! Troup's got a wonderful way of phrasing – very human and very down to earth ... LP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful little vocal set – and not nearly as gimmicky as you'd expect! The album's "presented" by Martin Denny, but overall it's a pretty straight jazz set – featuring vocals by Japanese/Hawaiian Ethel, sung in a cool and moody style that's got lots of 50s west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album
Incredible early work from Jackie & Roy – one of their sublime 50s classics on ABC, done in a style that's even groovier than their sessions for Storyville!

The lovely and soulful Hadda Brooks was one of the great talents on the LA scene of the postwar years – a vocalist and pianist with a style that blended blues and jazz, in a manner that was like some of her male counterparts on the scene at the time, such as Nat King Cole or Charles Brown. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brilliant harmony vocals by the Four Freshman – an album with a title that perfectly sums up the Four Freshman contribution to 50s jazz, and their sublime way of re-casting vocals in their work!
