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.
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.
Incredible work from The Dramatics! "Devil Is Dope" is this amazing slow funky track about a guy who goes to Hell – and it begins with this hard rumbling bass, and some great sound effects of flames buring the guy! "Hey You" is fantastic, too – and shows the group ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of those great funk singles on Stax/Volt from this period, by an artist who never recorded a full album for the label. The track's got a good hard funk groove, with a rolling bassline, and nice shouted funky vocals. 7-inch, Vinyl record
A really great single by this obscure Stax group that we wish got the chance to make a full LP! "I'll Kill A Brick" is not only one of the strangest-named titles we've heard, but it's a great southern soul tune, sung in a style that reminds us a bit of Ann Peebles, and with sweetly ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Sweet soul from a group of vocalists who were (at the time) sequestered in a New Jersey prison. Don't let the bars keep you back, though, because this is classic east coast harmony stuff. George Kerr wrote and produced, and the a-side's a mellow ballad, and the flip's a socially conscious track ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
