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.
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic! We love Burt Bacharach in so many ways that it's easy to forget the genius of these early A&M sides – but going back to them is always a treat, and it's wonderful to hear the way that Burt lays down his own work when given the chance! You know the tracks – "House ... LP, Vinyl record album
Another one of their crazy LPs, which are sometimes hard to find amidst the pop stuff they normally did. This one's got them doing some originals and some standards, augmented by a tight little ensemble of three percussionists and one bassist. The added instruments drive their piano stuff – ...

Man, this moog sure is happy! And who wouldn't be? The groovy lil' instrument's got some excellent backings here – all spare, rhythmic, and filled with cool electronic effects. The overall level of the electronics is more sophisticated than Perry-Kingsley, but in the end the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice work from the offbeat easy maestro Irving Taylor – a man with a good sense of humor, as you can guess from the cover – and song titles that include "Separate Bar Stools", "Hawaiian Worm Raiser", "In A Cafeteria With You", "Prison Interior ... LP, Vinyl record album
Key transitional work from Hugo – a record that has some of the groovy touches of his late 60s work, and some of the moogy touches of his 70s period! Not all tunes feature moog, but a few have some excellent work on the instrument by Eddie Kalehoff – and those that don't feature some ... LP, Vinyl record album
