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.
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.

This rare ... LP, Vinyl record album
Incredible stuff from Hugh Masekela – the kind of a record that ties it all together and serves up a whole new sound! The set was recorded in front of a jazz and folk-loving audience at the Village Gate – who gave Hugh the freedom to really unwind in a set of longer tracks that push ... LP, Vinyl record album
70s work by the Ikenga Super Stars group – featuring a number of midtempo groovers that have a messed up guitar sound that gives them a nice edge. Side one features the extended "Peace Movement Social Club Of Nigera" track – a long and strange little groover – and side ... LP, Vinyl record album
