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 really great record, and maybe one of the few hip hop soundtracks to get at the real feel of the music on the streets – maybe no surprise, as the film for which it was created did the same thing! This isn't a fluffed-up Hollywood take on hip hop, with mainstream soul thrown into the mix ... LP, Vinyl record album
A well-titled set from the lyrical king – the mighty T La Rock, one of the key mid 80s MCs who helped introduce a whole new level of sophistication to hip hop! T La Rock maybe never hit the heights of KRS-One, Rakim, or other contemporaries – but this set has all the sharp fire and ... LP, Vinyl record album
The LP with their big hits. With the full versions of "Freaks Come Out at Night", "Friends", "Five Minutes of Funk". Also includes "Escape (I Need a Break)", "Big Mouth". With the keyboards and vocoder effects, it's hard to believe that this LP ... LP, Vinyl record album
At this point LL was definitely going for radio play, and it worked, with a tight pop formula and lots of very catchy tracks. Still, commercial crossover in '89 was a little different story and there's more than a handful of great tracks here, with LL in true form on "I'm That Type of ... LP, Vinyl record album
A surprisingly groovy record – and one that's very different from the original Pink Panther soundtrack! This one's got much more of a 70s electric feel – and show's Henry Mancini's growth in this format, along the lines of his Cop Show Themes album, or his excellent Thief Who Came To ...
