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 should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
One of the few RCA albums cut by singer Teddi King – a great vocalist who came out of a small jazz group setting, but who works equally well here with larger arrangements from George Siravo! The mood of the album is nice and light, with a few smaller instrumental groups on about half the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Think what you want about Lena Horne, the lady's got one of the most distinct voices of her time – and she really sparkled nicely during her years at RCA!

Moody set of vocals recorded by this obscure Chicago singer.

Della Reese gets a Latin twist – and result is one of her grooviest albums from the early days! Backings are arranged by OB Masingill, who does a good job of mixing RCA Latin modes with the soulful settings used on Della's straighter jazz records – balancing things out nicely so that ... LP, Vinyl record album
A real standout set from Mose – one of his few early sides for Columbia, and a great one at that! The album alternates between vocal and instrumental tunes – both handled with a rootsy flourish that's every bit the best Allison sound, before it became all overdone and cliched. The set' ...

A set that features lots of great arrangements from Shorty Rogers – upbeat and jazzy, in ways that aren't exactly the Latin modes promised by the title, but still pretty darn great! Rogers his hitting nicely here on all burners – that leaner 60s approach he used in some of his own ... LP, Vinyl record album
