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.
Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play,
but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic,
with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a
cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner
and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay,
though probably with surface noise.
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.
The second album from Chicago soul legend Tyrone Davis – and every bit as wonderful as his first! Like that set, this one bounces along on a wave of well cast Chisoul arrangements – penned by Tom Washington and Willie Henderson, with a great mix of the sweet and the rough – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warm and tender work from the mighty Tyrone Davis – really singing here at the height of his early powers, in that wonderful blend of the rough and smooth that made him so unique! Davis has a gritty touch in his singing style, but the backings have that perfect Brunswick Chicago soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Raw hard soul by this great bluesy soul singer. Jimmy produced and arranged the whole thing, and he lays down a great batch of originals like "Come On Home", "Just Let Me Cry", "Self Experience", and "Thinking Back". Also with a cover of "These Boots ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roy Ayers in a very Afro-styled mode – working here on his own after a famous collaboration with Fela Kuti – in a set that's filled with the same sort of hard-driving Afro-Funk grooves that you'd find in Fela's classic recordings! The songs are shorter than Fela's, and with more of Roy' ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Wilson Pickett's overlooked 70s gems for RCA Records – material that's often overshadowed by his earlier fame on Atlantic, but which still has the singer very much at the top of his deep soul game! The music here is that mature version of southern soul that was bubbling up in the 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic early album from one of the hit 60's soul girl groups, one you don't come across much. A dozen tracks in all, including "Why Do Fools Fall In Love", "See You In September", "He's So Fine", "Why Am I So Shy", "Wishing", "Lucky Me" ... LP, Vinyl record album
The Impressions are wearing their politics much more on their sleeve at this point – what with a cover that shows them standing in the rubble of the ghetto, and a title that is both a bold proclamation of ownership, and a sad comment on the state of affairs. Curtis Mayfield's pen is in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Almost a precursor of California Motown in the 70s – given that the young Stevie Wonder spends a day at the beach! The set's an unusual one for Wonder, but a great one too – filled with beach-themed tunes to cash in on Stevie's appearance in Muscle Beach Party – but handled in ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great second-chapter effort from the legendary Syl Johnson – a sweet little record in which Johnson's raw vocals come into play with the tighter, warmer sound of Hi Records – with amazing results that have made the album a classic for years!

The fantastic debut of The Pointer Sisters – an album that's a lot deeper than most of their crossover pop from years to come!

Perhaps the ultimate album for The Gap Band – and sure, it was a hit, but the record still sounds great today, and the constant sampling of some of the record has kept it fresh in the crates for years and years! The band have lost the heavier funk sound of earlier years, and working in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice collection of mid 80s tracks that includes some harder to get middle-school classics: T La Rock & Jazzy Jay "It's Yours", Newcleus "Jam On It", Kurtis Blow "AJ Scratch", Run-DMC "Jam Master Jay", Fat Boys "Human Beat Box" and "Jailhous ... LP, Vinyl record album
