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.
Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Great boogie from Amuzement Park – a group that should have lasted longer than they did! "Groove Your Blues Away" is a snapping little jammer that builds up wonderfully – bass hooking you in, snippets of horn adding soul, and ensemble vocals that really send the tune over the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of the best tracks ever by First Choice! "Let No Man" is a sweeping anthemic club track – with a righteous lyric about love and losing it, and some killer production by the Baker-Harris-Young team that really gives the girls a great soulful groove! The Frankie Knuckles mix has ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
One of the most sublime tracks ever recorded by Al Green – and quite possibly THE Al Green tune to most of the world! It's hard to mess with the genius of "Love & Happiness" – from the slow-burning intro, to the punctuated rhythms of the tune, to Al's wonderfully flowing ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A classic electro cover of Gil Scott-Heron's big hit! There have been many versions of Gil's classic over the years, and this one is proof that the New York dancefloors were still grooving to the song, even after playing out versions by Gil, Brother To Brother, and Joe Bataan. There's a heck of a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A real disco-drama classic from Loleatta – one that begins with a solo vocal passage, stating the story in a stark, lonely setting – then rolls into a burning, building groove that really soars with full clubby power! "That's What You Said" is pretty great too – a bit ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
