(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has some aging and small seam splits.)
Near Mint - (minus)
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor 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.
A great set of torchy ballads from Lee Wiley – a singer who virtually helped invent the genre on record with her classic sets for Columbia Records! This album's done a few years after those – and features backings by Ralph Burns, who brings a fair bit more sentimental moments to his ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great singer, and a real standout album that's sadly been lost beneath the shifting sands of time! Toni Harper's working here with arranger Marty Paich – in a mode that's jazzy, but with soulful undercurrents – in that sophisticatedly swinging style that made Paich one of the best ...

A key later album in the career of Perry Como – and a record that has him hitting a nicely mature sort of sound! The title track was a big hit for Perry, and is still relatively well-remembered now – but the whole set is pretty darn great – with swirling strings that couch a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Plenty of blue tones in Kay Starr's music here – those sad-tinged sounds that made her a real standout in 50s pop, served up here with some slightly jazzier elements as well! The record's a nice contrast to some of Kay's more familiar hits – in that it still shows her singing strongly ... LP, Vinyl record album
A killer from Nancy – very different than most of her earlier work, and proof that she was still growing as an artist on Capitol! The record's arranged and produced by Larry Farrow – who gives the session a jazz funk feel that brings Nancy into a whole mode, a smooth modern one that's ... LP, Vinyl record album
The last album in Leon Thomas' classic run of albums for the Flying Dutchman label – and one of the most unique as well! There's a tighter feel here than some of Thomas' more free-flowing spiritual jazz sessions – but the sound is hardly commercial at all, either – and still has ... LP, Vinyl record album
