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 has a slight warp but still plays fine. Label has Xs in pen.)
Near Mint - (minus)
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.

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.

An excellent team-up, and not issued on any LP! "We Got Each Other" features Barbara singing with the group – in a gal-meets-group duet that's done in a smooth mellow 70s loving tone that really works well with both of them. "Make It Last" has a great groove – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 hard to find sides by this great Philly harmony group! 'It's Forever" is really one of the group's best – a slow building tune with a sad little approach – building harmonies over the theme of "forever", climbing over the top into a heavenly soul sound! "Sexy ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of the greatest singles on Chess! Tony Clarke was never a household name, but "The Entertainer" is his lasting contribution to soul music – a fantastic loping little soul track, with a groove that's great, and a vocal hook that you'll be humming for weeks! 7-inch, Vinyl record
"What Love Can Do" is from Bruce Springsteen's 2009 album Working On A Dream –and the fun, regional lore informed, and previously unreleased "A Night With The Jersey Devil" on the flip! 7-inch, Vinyl record
