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 tremendous early statement from the great guitarist John Fahey – and a record that has all his best ideas coming into really sharp focus! Fahey was a very collaborative person right from the start – even as a record collector, before his own recordings – and that spirit is felt ... LP, Vinyl record album
A rare early American release of some of Bert Jansch's sublime recordings for the UK Transatlantic label – with tracks that include "Angie", "I Have No Time", "Needle Of Death", "Casbah", "Ring A Ding Bird", and "The Wheel". LP, Vinyl record album
An early album from the sons of Earl Scruggs – less in the rockish mode of later years – and Gary and Randy both sing – with Gary on bass, piano, and organ – and Randy on guitar and banjo. LP, Vinyl record album
Phil Ochs really opens up his sound on this one – working with larger arrangements that make the album sound quite different than the stark, angry folk of his Elektra albums – in a way that creates an even more complicated approach to Ochs' themes cynicism and bitterness.
