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.
Some of our favorite 45rpm work from trombone genius Bennie Green – the hard-wiling "We Wanna Cook", with Gene Ammons and Billy Root on tenors, and Sonny Clark on piano – and a moody take on the Babs Gonzales tune "Lullaby Of The Doomed". 7-inch, Vinyl record
Killer funk! "Action Speaks Louder Than Words" is a great lost 70's funk track, with a slow loping groove, and a tight choppy hook that just crawls along nicely! One of the best cuts ever by this New Orleans band – and always a treat! 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great little track from Sylvia and the biggest group on her label! The track has a wonderfully sexy vocal feel – and it chugs along in a good mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, in the same basic groove as Sylvia's "Sweet Stuff" single – which is a nice spare drum- ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
