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.
An amazing record that stunned the world almost as much as Marvin's previous effort, What's Going On. Like that one, this album's an amazingly unified batch of tracks – with a visionary message about sex and love that is as honest and bracing as the politics and social commentary of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
An unusual soundtrack to a great little film – a powerful narrative from the 60s, but one that's served up here with a set of Detroit soul! The music on the album isn't new for the film – but it is a tasty batch of Motown tracks, put together by the producers of the record because the ... LP, Vinyl record album
What could they have been thinking? Motown sure must have had a lot of cash to throw around at this point – recording an album like this, which features soul versions of TV themes, most of them in the funky 70s mode. Arrangements are by Harold Johnson, Art Wright, and Kim Richmond – ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the odder 60s LPs from the Supremes, the soundtrack to a film that starred the group, with some guest appearances by The Temptations – in Motown-show versions of tracks that often feature the singers lapsing into medleys of other tunes, or doing some popular hits of the day. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Not just big hits, as there's some great overlooked cuts here – a list of 16 titles that includes "It's Been A Long Long Time" by The Elgins, "Your Unchanging Love" by Marvin Gaye, "In & Out Of Love" by Diana Ross & The Supremes, "Fading Away" ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent soul album from the great Willie Hutch! The record's got more of a vocal focus than some of Willie's other albums – and his rich voice is perfectly set up in some sweet and soulful arrangements that have a full sound and a classy finish, but still a raw edge that keeps things ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the biggest charting LPs by The Supremes – and one of the best, too! The girls are opening it up a bit here – getting in on some of The Miracles Go Go action of the period, and laying down tunes that have a bit more of a northern groove to them – relying a bit more on a ... LP, Vinyl record album
3LPs – and a heck of a lot of wonderful tracks from The Miracles! Titles include "Ooo Baby Baby", "My Girl Has Gone", "That's What Love Is Made Of", "I've Been Good To You", "Got A Job", "Bad Girl", "Baby Baby Don't Cry", ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the later Supremes albums with Diana Ross as the headliner – and the final Supremes album with Holland-Dozier-Holland pulling the strings – and led of by the incredible title track! "Reflections" is a straight up incredible tune – one of those late 60s Motown ... LP, Vinyl record album
The monumental debut of BT Express – and an excellent funk album that often gets overlooked by fans of the music because of the band's bigger fame as a disco group! This first record has the combo grooving hard and instrumentally – in the mode of a tight blacksploitation soundtrack, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A true pleasure indeed – easily one of the greatest records ever by the Ohio Players, and a perfect summation of all things great in their groove! The album's a landmark effort – even for the heady days of the early 70s – as the Players manage to bring together a fair bit of jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album
