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.
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.
Classic late 80s Chicago house pairing the warm jazzy vibe of Larry Heard's production with Robert Owens soulful vocals. An essential that really ought to need no introduction from us! 12-inch, Vinyl record
A real classic from Chip E – maybe not always the strongest of the early Chicago house music pioneers, but a great talent here – with a wonderfully soulful vibe! Female lead vocals make the tune a fuller, richer one than it might be from just the stark handclap beats and basslines ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
The mid 80s... when a song like this passed for politics in music! Forget the stupid message lyrics, though, and remember that Hardcastle cracked a lot of scenes with the cut – forging kind of a pop-political-street beat kind of groove. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Believe it or not, the track's a nice midtempo modern soul groover from The Moments – even though it's recorded after Ray, Goodman, and Brown left for Polygram, and Sugar Hill was holding onto the name with a different set of singers. The cut's got a beautiful sweet modern sound, and a sound ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Fantastic spacey club tracks from this legendary group! It's a monstrous blend of jazzy vibes, moogy keyboards, and pounding funky dancefloor beats! The flipside is just as great, too – and even though it's got a stupid name, the cut's got a killer hook and this storming instrumental groove ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
