Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Toots & The Maytals

Funky Kingston (Island version)
Island/Mango, 1971. Near Mint-
The second album from Toots & The Maytals to bear the title Funky Kingston – and a set that's arguably even more classic than the first – as it takes the best tunes from that set, then adds in some killers from other records too – all wrapped up in an Island Records package ...

Toots & The Maytals

Just Like That
Mango, 1980. Near Mint-
It's the early 80s, but Toots Hibbert still has lots of older rocksteady modes in his music – maybe warmed up a bit by some of the wider reach that was allowed by the Island Records placement of albums like this! Yet despite any temptation to make things sound a bit more crossover, the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Cliff & Others

Harder They Come
Island, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
A record that's not only a landmark in Jamaican music – but also a set that was to reggae what Curtis Mayfield's Superfly was to 70s soul! In other words, the set not only raised the bar for all the competition, it also ended up in a lot more record collections than most of them too – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dynamic (Jamaica), Early 70s. Very Good

African Herbsman
Trojan (UK), 1973. Very Good+
Great early work by Bob Marley & The Wailers – some of it produced by the legendary Lee Perry, too! Some of the tunes are early takes on later famous versions – but in a way, they're actually more definitive – in that they tie Marley back to the rich Kingston culture, instead ...

Peter Tosh

Mama Africa
EMI, 1983. Near Mint-
One of the most righteous albums ever recorded by Peter Tosh – as you might guess from the title and cover! Tosh could be great on other themes – but this set has him picking up even more politics than usual – maybe a bit late in the roots game, but able to find a way to bring ... LP, Vinyl record album
