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.
(Yellow label Atco pressing with PRC etch. Cover has light wear.)
Near Mint - (minus)
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Dreamy pop from the great Brian Hyland – one of those 60s voices we can never get enough of! This set's a bit sadder, and a bit more sophisticated than some of Brian's earlier work – with a floating kind of approach that moves past simple pop, into a realm that shows the young singer ...
