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 sweet little jazz house groove, cut by Pal Joey right around the time of "Hot Music" with a similar downtown crossover club vibe, fusing the best of the acid jazz scene with a NY house style! 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of the strangest club tracks from the West End years – but a great one! The cut's an obvious reference to some of the more sensual practices of the club scene, and it's got a nice dark sound to it that's a good example of the way that late disco, early house, and post-punk sounds were ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
An important early record from Yello! The standout cut here is "Bostich" – a great little track that's spare, electronic, and has snapping beats, catchy vocals, and this dark sound that fit perfectly with the crossover Danceteria scene! Other tracks are equally nice, though – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Pure old school enjoyment from Kool Moe Dee, Special K and LA Sunshine, that'll send you down memory lane back to the roller rink over Taana Gardner's infectious "Heartbeat" groove, a sample that would pop up time and again over the years, though we're happiest to hear it here! 12-inch, Vinyl record
