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 may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play,
but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic,
with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a
cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner
and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay,
though probably with surface noise.
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 incredible blend of Fender Rhodes and soulful saxophone – a late record from saxophonist Sonny Stitt, but one that also features the young Eddie Russ on keyboards! The record's got a laidback and funky sound that goes deeper than any of Stitt's earlier sides of the 70s – and it ... LP, Vinyl record album
An unusual pairing, but a great Stitt set from Verve – recorded with a west coast group that also includes Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Frank Rosolino on trombone, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and even a bit of Jimmy Giuffre near the end! Titles include "Down Country", "Downtown", ... LP, Vinyl record album
The first of a number of excellent albums that Sonny cut for the Jazz Masters label out of Detroit – records from late in his career – post-Prestige, post-Chess, but done with an energy that shows that he was really still hitting on all burners when he wanted to. Unlike some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic bop by Sonny Stitt – material recorded at the end of the 40s, originally issued as singles and 45s, but issued here as a full length set with a great cover image by Don Martin! The record features 2 different groups – one that includes JJ Johnson, John Lewis, and Max Roach; ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent album that has Stitt playing with moody string arrangements by Ralph Burns. This sort of album became one of the Verve trademarks after the success of the Charlie Parker & Strings sessions – but this Stitt LP gives the sound a whole new twist, thanks largely to Burns' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful late 50s work from Stitt – filled with subtle complex solos, and a rich confident tone that was missing from earlier records! As with some of his other Verve sessions from the time, the track list is mostly standards – but unlike some Verve sessions, Stitt never gets lost in ... LP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A strange record, and pretty darn goofy – but proof that the Jimmy Smith/Oliver Nelson team could tackle just about anything and make it come up hard and swinging! The album has Nelson arranging a jazz version of Prokofiev's Peter & The Wolf, with Smith soloing out front on most tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lester Young joins the Oscar Peterson trio – and the result is a classic meeting of the minds from early 50s Verve! Young's tone is tremendous throughout – that sharp-yet-cool style that had such a big influence on other 50s players, and which gets some great support here from Peterson' ... LP, Vinyl record album
