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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Arguably the last true moment of genius in Michael Jackson's career – a record that sold a bazillion copies around the world – and for plenty good reason! Michael's still working here with Quincy Jones – in territory that steps nicely from the Off The Wall groove, into territory ... LP, Vinyl record album
The first chapter in the career of one of the strangest forces in the New York club scene at the end of the 70s – the ultra-camp Cristina, an offbeat singer who mixed Brechtian angst with the punky funk of the Ze Records scene! Cristina came from a theater and academic background, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strange twist for the girls – not really because the material's country, but because the tunes selected are the kind of country tunes that would often be done in kind of a deep soul mode. There's still a sparkling quality on the album – and the girls' approach to the tunes is less ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arguably one of the greatest concept albums of the 80s – and the only really strong full length album cut by Frankie Goes To Hollywood! At the time of the set, the group was riding high on the success and controversy of their singles "Relax" and "Two Tribes" – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Larry Graham's still burning strong here – resisting the temptation to go disco that you might guess from the "dance" in the title, and if anything, pulling up the bass-heavy funk even more! The set's got a super-tight feel that's kind of a distillation of the successful Graham ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic album of classy vocals – one that helped set a whole new tone in 80s soul music! Anita had already gained a bit of experience on the soul scene before this set, but with this record she emerged as a full-formed diva who could effortlessly blend jazz and soul into a magnificent new ... LP, Vinyl record album
A lost little gem from Al Wilson – recorded for the short-lived Playboy label, in a rich, full sound that takes off from his earlier 70s hits! The groove here is a bit more sophisticated than before – with arrangements by HB Barnum, Gene Page, and Richard Cason – casting Al's ... LP, Vinyl record album
The debut album from Jody Watley – an instant hit that became one of the biggest soul albums of the mid 80s! Jody stepped out from soul group Shalamar to work with producer Andre Cymone on a this set of tracks that set the blueprint for slick soul at the time – still very much in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A late 70s effort to soup up the work of George Gershwin – as you might guess from the title – part of a bit nostalgia wave that seemed to hit right as disco crashed into the mainstream! As with other efforts of this type, the sound is surprisingly good – especially from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Luther Vandross at the top of his game – sitting right at the height of that crossover space in soul he virtually owned back in the mid 80s! The work here is certainly more commercial than Vandross albums of the past, but the soul is no less deep – thanks to Luther's amazing vocal ... LP, Vinyl record album
Driving Louis Bellson indeed – as Louie's drums set the tone for this session, and let Charlie Shavers and Seldon Powell echo out with some really great horn work! Tunes all have a nicely open-ended feeling that gets the players out of the context of their larger group histories and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very nice, very laidback session that has Moody and Cohn trading solos on an easy batch of bop tracks, along with Barry Harris, Roy Brooks, and Sam Jones. The recording quality is at the usual high standard for MPS – although the set was actually produced by Don Schlitten, presumably in New ... LP, Vinyl record album
