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.
Very cool work from Lionel Hampton – quite a change from his Verve material of the 50s, and an unusual sort of date for the Audio Fidelity label! As the title implies, Hampton not only plays his usual vibes, but a bit of drums and piano as well – and he's working in a cool smaller ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little set of instrumental tracks from Lionel Hampton – almost more soul than jazz, and set to some hipper than usual Brunswick Records arrangements – by the likes of Eugene Record, Willie Henderson, Sonny Sanders, and Hamilton Bohannon! The setting is a great showcase for Hamp' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tight backings and sharp trumpet from Blue Mitchell – a great RCA Records set that's kind of a mid 70s extension of the work he was doing on Mainstream! As with some of the Mainstream Records – and some of his late 60s Blue Note work as well – Blue is the lead soloists over ... LP, Vinyl record album
Excellent early west coast material – and some of the greatest work that Shorty Rogers ever put on record! Unlike some of Rogers' other sides for RCA, which were often a bit gimmicky or strangely-themed, this one's a straight grooving session of west coast jazz, played by some of the finest ... LP, Vinyl record album
Really hip work from Italian flautist Gino Marinacci – a player with a sound that's unlike anyone else we can think of, recording here in a group that really matches the best side of his talents! Gino plays a bass flute – which has a nice low-end, rumbling sort of sound – quite ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rare obscure trio recording by this lost group from Chicago! The great Hal Russell, later a reed player, is in the group playing drums, which were his first instrument. The writing's great, and very modern without being that "out". Hard angular lines all over the place, and Daley's ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the great tenor and organ dates cut for RCA in the 60s by the team of Johnny Hodges and Wild Bill Davis! Guitar is by Mundell Lowe and Dickie Thompson – and titles include "Con Soul & Sax", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Johnny Come Lately", "No ... LP, Vinyl record album
