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.

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.
One of the most unusual records ever made by vibist Dave Pike – a unique hybrid of Brazilian rhythms and jazz fusion – all carried off with sounds that are incredibly earthy overall!

One of the greatest jazz-meets-classical albums from pianist Eugen Cicero – thanks to a good amount of Rokoko in the grooves!

A tripped-out batch of funk rock tracks – one of the biggest crossover successes of the MPS lable!

LP, Vinyl record album
A great example of the strength of the MPS label in the trad jazz side of the spectrum – a well-done session that features Tate's tenor in a small "celebrity club" group that includes Wilbur Bascomb on trumpet, Ben Richardson on clarinet and alto, Nat Pierce on piano, and Eddie ...

A classic live set that has Don Cherry joining George Russell's group that included Ray Pitts on tenor, Bertil Loevgren on trumpet, and Brian Trentham on trombone.

A little bit of Stitt is always a great thing – especially when Sonny's playing this well! The album's a killer from Stitt's Roost years – a time when the player was really stepping ahead of the pack – moving past anyone's easy categorizations of his playing – and into ... LP, Vinyl record album
