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.

Well, not just London – as Bo Diddley also plays a bit here in Chicago, with help from Willie Henderson and Gene Barge on saxes, piano from Tennyson Stephens, guitar from Phil Upchurch, and congas from Derf Reklaw! The London sessions feature Roy Wood on bass, Eddie Hardin on organ, and Ray ... LP, Vinyl record album
Raw, ragged, rough, and ready – killer early work by Bo Diddley, clearly in a class by itself! The Bo Diddley groove isn't blues, isn't soul, and isn't R&B – it's instead a mad blend of rhythm, scratchy guitar, and spontaneously playful vocals that few other singers could ever hope ... LP, Vinyl record album
Raw, rootsy blues from Jimmy Reed – recorded in a laidback style, with backing on drums, bass, and guitar. Most tunes are at a slower pace – and titles include "Down In The Ghetto", a nice funky number done in instrumental and vocal versions, plus "Bright Lights", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Two years might be a short time for any artist to be in their "prime" – but the quality of these sides is so strong, they've supported the reputation of Furry Lewis for many many years!
