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.
One of the best Esquivel albums ever! The record is a follow-up to his Other Worlds, Other Sounds set originally recorded for RCA – but it was done for Reprise during the early 60s. The (then) free-wheeling gang at Reprise let Juan Garcia do pretty much anything he wanted to with the record ... LP, Vinyl record album
An album with as much power as you'd expect from the title – and a set that's billed as featuring "Music To The Limits Of Audibility"! The limits explored are the farther ones in sound – not the lower tones at the end of hearing – and Marty Gold does a very good job of ... LP, Vinyl record album
The great French soundtrack composer presents his takes on songs by Burt Bacharach, Michel Legrand, Ennio Morricone, and others – with help from Christian Gaubert and Michel Colombier on arrangements! LP, Vinyl record album
A great later moment from Martin Denny – a set that gave him a big 60s hit in a sweet version of "Taste of Honey"! Denny approaches the tune with all the great mellow moods that Bobby Scott intended – none of the too-fast styles of Hirt, and instead the slow-moving rhythms ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pretty darn groovy! Jack Pleis is at the helm of this obscure studio group designed to cash in on the younger generation (or older easy fans who wanted to be hip!), and he does a great job of laying down some slightly-funky easy arrangements with a light 60s Capitol pop feel! LP, Vinyl record album
A real standout in the early career of trumpeter Freddie Hubbard – a very unique session that has him working with some larger arrangements in the background – blowing these magical solos over the top, while still hitting a great edge with the rest of the musicians as well! There's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A killer set of funky instrumentals – one of those key records that has the Nite-Liters really challenging legendary groups like The Meters or JBs! If you know the sound of the combo, you'll know that they're a bit different than either – with a very distinctive groove that's created ... LP, Vinyl record album
