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.

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.

Back Door Blues
Riverside, 1962. Very Good+
An incredible album that has Cleanhead moving way past his usual bag!

He's playing with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pentragram, 1971. Very Good
A retro rootsy session from one of the unsung founders of rock n roll – a set of gospel tunes recorded for the Warner Pentragram subsidiary in the early 70s, done in a style that's in keeping with the "let's sell rootsy black music to the white liberal audience" that Warner was ...

Lucille
Bluesway, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the first records to feature BB King's famous guitar, Lucille, in the spotlight – an instrument he'd played for years, but which took on legendary status over the decades! The guitar's handled perfectly here by King – with a tone that still holds on to all the gritty edges of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boss Blues Harmonica
Chess, 1960s. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
A pretty nice little 2LP set – put together in the early 70s, and featuring material that Walter recorded for Chess during the 60s. As the title would imply, there's a lot of harmonica on the album – but Walter's vocals should also be given their due, as they're a bit more in the soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Honeydripper
Prestige, 1960. Very Good+
Sykes plays piano and sings, and the bluesy group that backs him up includes King Curtis on tenor. The overall sound is similar to other jazzy blues albums on Prestige – with sort of a rootsy R&B sound, filtered through more of a 60s soul jazz sensibility. Titles include "Jailbait&q ...
