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.

If you don't look beyond the group's name you might come to the conclusion this is some sort of over the top wailing fusion session. But it's more like a second rate imitation of Slave or 80s era EWF over the Sugarhill rhythm section, which isn't surprising since they are using Doug Wimbish and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great small combo work by Roberta Flack, recorded early in her career, when she was still one of the hippest things around – and it's among her best records!

A great collection of classic 60s soul from Atlantic Records – served up in a cover that's almost iconic! There's 2 tracks here by each of the greats recording for the label at the time – with tunes that include Solomon Burke "Got To Get You Off My Mind" and "Just Out Of ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little concept album – and one that really shows the continuing sophistication and growth of Jerry Butler's music in the 70s! The record is dedicated to the "single girl" of the 70s (portrayed with the sad little photo of a brown bag lunch and a Gucci purse on the cover) ... LP, Vinyl record album
