This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.

Dionne's certainly winning the "soulful" tag on this albums – working with Memphis producer Chips Moman, in a mode that's clearly designed to give her more credibility with the hipper soul scene at the end of the 60s! Burt Bacharach's still in the shadows, but Moman's the real ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lovely early work from Dionne – one of the greatest voices to ever get the support of the great Burt Bacharach, the guiding hand on this tasty batch of early singles!

This is an outstanding collection of Warwick's songs which are, of course, almost exclusively written by Bacharach and David.

If you think you know Boz Scaggs, think again – because this early Columbia album features a whole different sound! The Scaggs here is a really loose and soulful one – as Boz steps out of the freewheeling late 60s Bay Area scene with a really wonderful take on blue-eyed soul – an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kind of a messed-up album, with a bit few too many styles running through the mix – but still with some pretty great moments! The best of these is the track "Funky", which has an amazing drum sound, especially on the intro, which has been sampled famously by Tribe Called Quest. ... LP, Vinyl record album

The first ep by The Mission – a US harmony soul group whose name forced the British rock group The Mission to become Mission UK on these shores! Despite that bit of now-faded industry history, the group's not a bad one – sweet 80s harmony, almost in a style that was a bit ahead of its ... LP, Vinyl record album
A landmark album that hardly needs any introduction – as it's one of the most famous soundtracks, if not soul records, of the 70s! Isaac Hayes had already surprised music fans with the sophistication of his first few solo albums, which had been issued before this one – but with Shaft, ... LP, Vinyl record album
