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.
One of the greatest tracks ever by this wonderful Chicago soul group! "Feel Kind Of Bad" is one of the all-time non-LP greats – with a "should have been huge" hook, and harmonies that don't quit! "Anything You Do" is pretty good too – and is a version of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A classic early tune from Muddy Waters – one that might not have changed the world when it was released at the start of the 50s – but later gave the famous group their name! The tune's a wonderful mix of raw rural and early electric Chicago blues modes – spare, but extremely ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Stunning! "Mellow Mood" is anything but mellow! Floyd Morris lays down a hard rolling piano groove that doesn't stop until it hammers away for a hard 3 minutes, with a dark crashing hook that's the sort of thing that will haunt your dreams. It's a great track, and it's really one of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two excellent rare sides by the Notations! The material predates their recordings for Curtom – and it's got a much rawer sound that's sort of a mix of sweet harmony soul with some of the rougher elements of the Twinight production style. Syl Johnson produced, and both cuts are written by ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great one from Brenton Wood! "Gimme Little Sign" is an obvious follow-up to his "Ooogum Boogum Song" hit, with a very similar beat and groove – but hey, that one's so great, we hardly mind the similarity, as it sounds like a very groovy part 2! "I Think" is a ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
