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.
Killer keyboards from the legendary George Duke – and one of his most righteous albums for the MPS label! The album's a spectacular set that showcases both sides of Duke's genius at the time – his spacey, soulful approach to a laidback tune – and his more jamming styles on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pretty wild stuff from Michal Urbaniak – a mixture of hard-jamming fusion tracks and some funkier numbers, performed with a group that also includes Urszula Dudziak scatting away nicely on vocals! There's also some nice keyboards and electric percussion on the set – all of which makes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Don't blame us for the typo in the title – just thank us for carrying such groovy record! The album's a hi-fi space jazz spectacular – featuring some of Eruope's hippest players of the 60s, all coming together under the leadership of Roland Kovac, who composed and arranged this 17-part ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic European date from Freddie Hubbard – recorded right around the vintage of his Red Clay years, but with a sound that hearkens back more towards his Blue Note sessions of the mid 60s! There's a nicely angular feel to this set – that bold, modern quality that really set Hubbard ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic session for MPS, one of the few labels smart enough to ever make bassist Richard Davis a leader on a session! The set is arguably his best record as a leader, and it features a great group, playing in a number of different configurations. Players include Freddie Hubbard, Roland Hanna, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A surprisingly wonderful 70s session from pianist Red Garland – thanks to the presence of saxophonist Jimmy Heath on the set! Although Red's most commonly heard in a trio setting, the presence of Heath here really makes the session stand out – as Jimmy's playing with all the best sense ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Ponty's best albums – a more straight-ahead late 60s session for MPS, without the fusion noodling of later years! The group's a hip quartet – with Ponty on violin, Wolfgang Dauner on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pederson on bass, and Daniel Humair on drums – and Ponty's ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of George Duke's best albums for the MPS label – and a set that has a sound that's a little bit more soul than before! The album uses a fair bit of vocals alongside Duke's funky keyboards – but in a way that's not nearly as smooth as some of his albums for Epic, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very edgey big band session from German tenorist Hans Koller – originally recorded in 1968, but unissued until the end of the 70s – and even then, only briefly! The session's an unusual one for Koller, who normally works in small group format – and it features an extended suite ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of THE greatest Verve albums of the 60s – an incredible set that's one of the few older records made as a leader by drummer Ed Thigpen! The sound here is incredibly hard to describe – a light mix of guitar from Kenny Burrell, piano from Herbie Hancock, and trumpet from Clark Terry ... LP, Vinyl record album
A tight swinger from Sonny Stitt – one of the standout 60s dates he recorded for the Impulse label, a place where he seemed to get even more care and focus in the studio! The record's got all the soulful swing of Stitt's classics for Roost, but also hits a slightly more lyrical groove at ... LP, Vinyl record album
