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.
Have guitar, will travel – and back in the day, Bo Diddley was going pretty darn far with great material like this!

Hardly the love song album you might guess from the title – and instead, a classic batch of Chess Records material from the mighty Bo Diddley! The sound is loud, echoey, and nice and raw – the kind of unique groove that really made Diddley a standout in the rock and roll years – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Go go go Bo Diddley – to a groove that's completely your own, and completely mindblowing on early records like this! Bo is unstoppable at this point in his career – and given a heck of a lot more freedom than most other soul artists, too – as he wrote, arranged, and really put ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forget the silly cowboy costume on the front cover – because this is a heck of a great album! Bo might have gotten saddled (no pun intended!) with a silly gimmick for the title and image of the set – but the album's one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring ... LP, Vinyl record album
A group that definitely lives up to its name – given that the lineup features the Chess Records stalwarts Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, and Muddy Waters! The set's maybe a bit more in the mode of Wolf or Waters than some of Bo's own records – although there's a bit of that riffing spark of ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic Chicago crossover of blues and soul – a wonderful album from Little Milton, and one that's cut with some of the same sophisticated overtones as work by Bobby "Blue" Bland at the time! The backings here are superb – arranged by Phil Wright and James Carter with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very obscure work on Chess – Texas and west coast artists, some recorded in Chicago – with tracks by Johnny Fuller, Jimmy Nelson, King Solomon, Clarence Green, Jimmy T99 Nelson, Percy Mayfield, and Floyd Dixon – all artists who are better known for recordings on Specialty or ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic packaging of Muddy Waters' famous early work for Chess Records – brought together with a cover and title that pitch him strongly towards the growing folk movement of the time! And, although most of these tracks were recorded in Chicago, with some electric guitar in the mix, there's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hip work from one of the important early bluesmen on Specialty records – a hell of a guitar player, as you'd guess from his name – but also a singer with the same kind of raw charms as Johnny Watson in the 50s! LP, Vinyl record album
BB King in London – not playing live, but working in the studio with a host of British musicians he'd inspired over the years! The lineup varies from track to track, giving a nice sort of variety to the album – and the overall feel is a bit like some of the Chess London sessions of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
