Very Good + (plus)
Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.

Here's What's Happening offers up a take on the sound of the young, served up by easy instrumental maestro Floyd Cramer!

A set that mixes the tinkling piano of Cramer with some larger, fuller backings from Bill McElhiney – all recorded in RCA's Nashville studios, but with a sound that's very cosmopolitan, save for the occasional honky tonk twinge in Floyd's phrasing. Titles include a nice version of "Spani ... LP, Vinyl record album
Class Of 71 has Floyd Cramer picking up just a bit of rock in his choice of songs – not underground psych, but a range of material from folks like James Taylor, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Brewer & Shipley – mixed in with the sort of tunes you'd be more likely to find on ... LP, Vinyl record album
An album of "thumbtack piano", in which the felt pads have been stuffed with tacks to give the playing a weird tinny sound. In the vein of Ferrante & Teicher, with jazzy arrangements. LP, Vinyl record album
Groovy studio electric guitar tracks with orchestra, played by the master, Vinnie Bell. Vinnie plays a number of groovy pop cuts from the late 60's, like "If We Only Had Time", "Aquarius", "Good Morning Starshine", "Les Bicyclettes De Belsize", and "Hey ... LP, Vinyl record album
