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.
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.
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.
Not Lalo's greatest soundtrack of the 70s, but with a few nice moments! The music was written for a strange action film that starred George Segal, Henry Fonda, and Richard Widmark, set in an amusement park – and, not surprisingly, about half the tunes have a carnival or circus type theme to ...

One of the greatest soul compilations ever! Sure, it's the soundtrack to the goofy John Waters' film Hairspray – but it's also a killer batch of soul tracks that were suprisingly well selected, and which have hardly ever been reissued elsewhere! Titles include "The Bug" by Jerry ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite 60s surf soundtracks ever – an amazing blend of Stu Phillips orchestrations with some key vocal moments from the trio of Dino Desi & Billy! The album's got a wonderful theme – "Thru Spray Colored Glasses" – sung initially by the trio, then served ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Hugo Montenegro's greatest soundtracks ever – and one of the grooviest 60s scores we can think of! The album's filled with incredible jazzy tracks – darkly tinged, but bubbling, strident, and wonderful – the kind of hard-driving numbers that make a soundtrack like this so ... LP, Vinyl record album
The kind of soundtrack they hardly ever make any more – one that's as full, rich, and dramatic as the film for which it was written! Dimitri Tiomkin really outdoes himself here – drawing on his long legacy of bold orchestral scores for Hollywood epics, and inflecting it with a slightly ... LP, Vinyl record album
An amazing 60s soundtrack – one that's infinitely better than the film for which it was written! Johnny Mandel's at the height of his powers here – blending in jazzy elements from his west coast 50s roots with lush strings, shimmering orchestrations, and some complex touches that are ...
