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.
(Green label pressing. Cover has a cut corner and surface wear.)
Very Good + (plus)
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.
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.
Blues harp player James Cotton is in strong Chicago form here – very much the kind of setting that matches his early work of the 60s – with work from two bands – one with Magic Slim on guitar and Pinetop Perkins on piano – the other with Douglas Fagen on tenor, Eddie Harsch ...

Small group work from the 40s into the 50s – with accompaniment from Roosevelt Sykes on piano on many tracks, plus work from Eddie Chamble on tenor, JT Brown on alto, Big Bill Broonzy on guitar, and Willie Dixon on bass – each of whom play a bit. LP, Vinyl record album
