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.
Tight stuff from this Atlanta funk artist! "Wake Up" is a bit more progressive than his usual bag – but the real strange one is "The Party Life", a very mellow cut that's sort of a country soul number about a guy whose daughter is taken away by a pimp! 7-inch, Vinyl record
An instrumental that shows the Counts still at their full power – moving along with a good complicated groove, and some odd instrumentation that works well to keep the track interesting! 7-inch, Vinyl record
The good one here is "Magic Ride" – an instrumental that shows the Counts still at their full power – moving along with a good complicated groove, and some odd instrumentation that works well to keep the track interesting! 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 nice ones from The Counts' earliest years on Aware! "Too Bad" is a vocal number that rolls and vamps with some weird jazzy changes – almost Latiny at times, as horns inflect a strange edge around the raspy vocals in the lead – and conga rolls along to push the bottom. ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Very early single by Loleatta Holloway, and with much more of a raw southern soul feel than you'll find on other records. "Rainbow" is her version of the Gene Chandler classic, and although it's pretty faithful to the original, Loleatta gives it a nice new sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record
We don't know much about Marvin Sims other than his deep soul records from Chicago, of which this one's a gem! The track's a long 2-part mellow one, with a sound that's more southern than Chicago, and which is filled with excellent vocals by Marvin – who's got a style here that's a little ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great obscure one from Bobby! The cut's an extended groover with a hard blaring "sock boogaloo" soul feel to it – and we almost never see it at all! Great vocals all the way through, and stone cold production from James! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Funky soul from the great Bill Bunky Sheppard! Both sides are great – with kind of a hard lively sound that's similar to Sheppard's Esquires, but with a rawer sound than any of his other Chicago work. Skip & Ernest are a hard soul duet – in the Sam & Dave mode – and the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two excellent cuts from this obscure Chicago soul singer! "Hurry Change" is a sweet soulful number, with Tenison's vocals raspily laying out the slightly sad lyrics, with additional vocal backing by the Operation Breadbasket Choir. "Baby, I'm A Fool" is great, too – with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A rare one from Johnny Lytle – a single that doesn't figure in any of his work for Riverside or Tuba! "Side Street" is a wonderful jazz stepper – burning with vibes and organ and a tight snapping groove – in the manner of the best funky Lytle cuts from the early days! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
