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.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
Sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess. Morris Jennings ... LP, Vinyl record album
The date for this is 1974, but we're pretty sure the tracks are compiled from some of Ramsey's 60's sessions – especially because half of them are with the Young/Holt rhythm combo, and the other half are with Cleveland Eaton and Maurice White. Titles include "Easy Does It", "So ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet and slow-burning organ from the great Milt Buckner – a really simple session overall, but one with lots of magical touches! Milt plays with a tone that's much lighter than a lot of his contemporaries on the Hammond – not as many tricks as Jimmy Smith, and perhaps more integrated ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really inventive reading of Duke Ellington's famous suite – done with a hip early 70s British jazz spin, in a performance that features Norma Winstone on the vocal tunes – plus other work in the group from Kenny Wheeler and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Henry Lowther on trumpet and ...

A rare session as a leader from drummer Red Holt – cut at a time when he was making waves with the Ramsey Lewis Trio, and years before his work in Young Holt Unlimited! The record's got a really playful feel that points the way towards directions Holt would take later – a mix of soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
An early album by vibist Mike Mainieri – who later went on to do a lot of trippier albums in the late 60s. This one's a very nice quartet side with a straight feel, and was recorded for Chess/Argo in the early 60s, at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in New Jersey. The record is a lively mix of ...

A live date – one that features Richard Pine on alto and baritone, working with a Japanese group in Tokyo – Kenichi Yoshida on piano, Yukinori Narushige on bass, and Tadao Shimada on drums – plus vocals from Junko Mine on one track. LP, Vinyl record album
