Very Good + (plus)
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.
Jaunty is a pretty darn great way to describe the Howard Roberts sound on Capitol Records – upbeat, grooving, and wonderfully well-rounded – bringing in a bit of funk, a bit of bossa, a bit of groovy, and coming up with a whole new sound in the process! Roberts guitar is wonderfully ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice one in the Verve jazz/easy tradition of the 60s – with Roberts' guitar right out front, and lots of light, lilting strings and woodwinds behind him. There's more "velvet" than "groove" on the record, but the whole thing does have a gentle easy swing to it. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

One of Stan's great early Concord albums – a surprisingly great period for his playing! The group here features James McNeely on piano, Marc Johnson on bass, and either Victor Lewis or Billy Hart on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
