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.
A great later record from Nat King Cole – kind of corny, but in a really great way – and in a style that ended up making the whole thing a real standout in Nat's last few years on the planet! The songs are mostly old-timey, but swung by Nat in this weird 60s version of nostalgia that ... LP, Vinyl record album
This Is Sinatra indeed – a wonderful collection of singles, and a near-lost album to the shifting sands of time! The record wasn't one of Frank's "album concepts" for Capitol, and has since been dismantled in the catalog – but for many in the 50s, this was one of THE Sinatra ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arguably one of Frank's best collections of standards – with sublime Nelson Riddle arrangements! Titles include "The Girl Next Door", "Like Someone In Love", "A Foggy Day", "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "Little Girl Blue", and "Violets For ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great album, and one in which Nat King Cole returns to his roots as a jazz singer! The session differs greatly from Nat's other schmaltzy ones from the time, and it features a very "after midnight" sound – with Nat playing and singing backed only by a small combo that includes ...

The Velvet Fog gets hip and swinging in this Now Sound album recorded for Capitol in the late 60's. The title cut's ok, but the real gems are the versions of "Sunshine Superman" and "Take a Letter Maria", plus the more obscure "Catch a Robber by the Toe" and "Requ ... LP, Vinyl record album
Killer 60s work from Nancy! Despite the "easy" in the title, this record's a perfect batch of pop soul tunes – arranged by Jimmy Jones with a breezy style that works perfectly for Nancy's voice. The record features her big hit "Face it Girl, It's Over", which was ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very groovy! This is an excellent album of swinging tunes that Mel cut for Capitol – very much in the Now Sound vein of his Right Now album for Columbia, and like that one, a mix of late 60s pop tunes and more obscure numbers, all done in a punchy "in the lounge with" mode. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
An album of mixed vocal and instrumental cuts, some with Nancy in the lead, backed by Shearing's combo, others with Shearing's group alone. The vocal tracks are quite nice jazz ones – and include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Born To Be Blue", "All Night Long", ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Frank Sinatra's last great ballad albums for Capitol – a sad and dreamy batch of tunes that kicks off with the incredible "Only The Lonely" – one of those Sinatra torch songs that's so great, so sad, nobody else has ever been able to record a better version, nor have ... LP, Vinyl record album
A lesser-remembered Capitol set from Dakota Staton, but a great one too – a record that has Dakota singing ballads and blues, both of which she does pretty darn well! On some tracks, Sid Feller handles the backings, often with a gentle mix of strings – while other numbers have a bit ... LP, Vinyl record album
A sweetly stepping session of bluesy jazz vocals from Jeannie Cheatham – outwardly a trad-oriented record, but done here with some nice light west coast touches that really capture the best of the Concord groove of the early 80s. There's a gentle swing to the tracks that reminds us of some ... LP, Vinyl record album
