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.
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

Most interesting is that James Mason co-produced and wrote the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Probably the best of the mid tempo dancefloor tunes cut by this Chicago soul combo – served up here on an original 12" single, with a long mix that goes a minute extra than the regular one! 12-inch, Vinyl record
An offshoot of the 4AD rock scene from the UK, this number sampled Rakim from "Paid In Full" to great effect – and it made quite a bit of sense that the track was issued on 4th & Broadway in the US (probably also a legal move, so that the label wouldn't sue 4AD for copping a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Three nice ones from the always-dope Tommy Tee. "What's Your Name?" features Nice & Smooth, with their best cut in a while, almost reminding us of the classics on their first lp. "Lethal Dosage" features Souls Of Mischief. "Above Da Law" features Ruck, 8-Off/Agal ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Jack Ashford handled this obscure little record of Christmas disco tracks – and the sound is similar to some of his own work on the Magic Disc label, although with the requisite Christmas touches! 12-inch, Vinyl record
