Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Capitol, 2004. Near Mint-
One of the best tracks from the big comeback album – the 3 MCs plus one DJ opus "Triple Trouble"! As was the case with the album opener/lead off single "Ch-Check It Out", it's a straight up, return-to-form block rocker – with mid school styled lyrical trade offs and ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sugar Hill, 1979. Near Mint-
Three female singers/MC's with backing by the Sugarhill Gang Band – and rhymes that sound like they might have been written by the Sugarhill Gang. Maybe it's not up to the standards of other early female MC's like Sha Rock of the Funky 4 +1, but this is more like a 1979-era slow-tempo ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Our Gang, 1982. Very Good+
Great boogie from Amuzement Park – a group that should have lasted longer than they did! "Groove Your Blues Away" is a snapping little jammer that builds up wonderfully – bass hooking you in, snippets of horn adding soul, and ensemble vocals that really send the tune over the ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Sunshine Sound, 1978. Very Good+
This "special disco mix" is a nice nice groover for the dancefloor. It's got cool electronics, with a great moogy solo, and a very tight groove! Nice breakdown in the middle, too. 12-inch, Vinyl record
