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.
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 little groove from Melba Moore – one with a wicked bass bit on the intro – just ripe and waiting for someone to snatch up and sample! The cut's got plenty going on instrumentally, even before the vocals – a wonderful bit of old school funk that Melba makes even better ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
"Dukey Stick" is one of George's best from the later funk years, and it's a track that was a big sample for someone back in the day. (Was it De La Soul?) Served up here in an original 12" single, with a full 8 minute version of the cut! 12-inch, Vinyl record
A smooth mellow stepper from Smoke City – taken at a fairly slow pace, with washes of keyboards and some nice acoustic piano lines over the top, almost as an extension of a late Barry White mode, but less heavy on the beats. The vocal track's a great ballad, the sort that's perfect to play ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
2 sweet funky dancefloor tracks from Ndugu Chancler and the Chocolate Jam Co – both of them served up with some nice jazzy touches! "Chocolate Jam" is a groover with lots of bass on the bottom, plenty of vamping horns, and mixed male/female vocals calling off the tune in a party ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A wonderful club cut from Roy Ayers! The track has a groovy jazz kick to it – with a similar feel to Roy's heavily sampled "Running Away", which was cut right around the same time. This one has an even better hook, though – with some great soulful vocals by Roy! 12-inch, Vinyl record
