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.
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.
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones! Unlike some of the other players on Prestige during the early 70s – who often got a bit weaker as the decade moved on, thanks to the departure of some of the better forces arranging and producing the records – Jones kept on playing hard, ...

Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Roland Kirk's classic early recordings for Mercury, and the kind of stuff that has him mixing his wild reed playing with more traditional hardbop structures. Most of the tracks are quartet sides, with piano, bass, and drums backing Kirk up – but the real focus is on Kirks solos, which ... LP, Vinyl record album
A lost session by Hank Mobley – originally recorded in 1966, but not officially issued until 1979, and then only briefly until another short issue in the mid 90s! The record has Mobley really reaching out into a new bag – hitting a more soulfully arranged sound than on some of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strange album from Tyler – and one that's almost funky! The record features Tyler in the company of free modal players Steve Reid, Arthur Blythe, Ronnie Boykins, and Earl Cross – and the album has a nice open-ended loft jazz sound that mixes spiritualism and free post-ESP playing in ... LP, Vinyl record album
A stone slammer from saxophonist Steve Grossman – and a set that's served up in the same funky style as the best work by the related Stone Alliance combo! The core trio features tremendous interplay between the hard-biting tenor of Steve Grossman the funky bass of Gene Perla, and slamming ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic early set featuring the Jazz Messengers back when the group still included Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, and Kenny Dorham. Hard hard hard bop, cracklin' with energy, and a great example of the kind of playing that made the group an instant success. Tracks include "Minor's Holiday" ... LP, Vinyl record album
A sharp groover from Willis Jackson! Tough to find on wax, this early 60's session takes Willis' mean tenor sound, and adds a nice bossa groove to it – in a style that's similar to Ike Quebec's Samba Soul LP. There's lots of extra percussion, thanks to Montego Joe and Juan Amalbert of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice set of two extended quartet pieces, featuring a group led by Taylor, and with Jimmy Lyons, William Parker, and Rashid Bakr. The LP includes a 30 minute version of "Calling It The 8th", plus a 10 minute take of "Calling It The 9th". Both tracks were recorded live in 1981, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maybe the funkiest album ever cut for the legendary Westbound label in Detroit – and that's saying a lot, given that the company was the initial home to Funkadelic! Yet on this stunning full length set, The Counts maybe do that famous group one better – pushing aside their vocals for ... LP, Vinyl record album
