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.
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,

The Reflections were a great lost soul group who cut one album for Capitol, plus a handful of singles. This nice one from 1975 features 2 strong cuts by the band – both with arrangements by Bert De Coteaux. "Three Steps" is a midtempo number, written by JR Bailey – and the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fantastic work by Lou Rawls – recorded live and produced by David Axelrod! "Southside Blues" is mostly a monologue by Lou – really great stuff about our home, the southside of Chicago – and oddly, the single cuts out before the song actually begins! "Shadow Of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Post-Brunswick work by Barbara Acklin – and pretty darn nice! "Raindrops" has a great little groove – very similar to the loping Chi-soul approach that Barb virtually invented at Brunswick in the late 60s, and a perfect fit for her righteous and bubbling vocals. "Here ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
An overlooked mellow soul cut from James – and very nice! "Have A Happy Day" is a great little track written by Charle Sherrell, who we think is singing backup vocals on the cut – and the track's got a sound that's a bit smooth, but which builds in a rougher way, thanks to ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
