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.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout notch and DMM sticker.)
Near Mint - (minus)
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.
A short-lived group, but a great one too – a quartet that features post-Free work from guitarist Paul Kossof and drummer Simon Kirke – each of whom sing a bit too! But the real strength of the album comes from the wicked keyboard work of John Rabbit Bundrick – who also sings a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A huge album from Traffic – a set that was first given to the world in a strange-shaped cover – which seemed to grace countless record collections back in the 70s! The group is expanded to a sextet here – with bass from Rick Grech and percussion from Rebop Kwaku Baah – both ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wild work from this offbeat UK group – a lineup that includes Neil Innes on piano, electric piano, and vocals – plus Ollie Halsall on guitar, and John Meggison on piano and organ – and more vocals by a lot of other members! LP, Vinyl record album
The record that pushed U2 over the top – thanks in part to production from Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois – on titles that include "Pride", "Unforgettable Fire", "Sort Of Homecoming", "Bad", "Elvis Presley & America", "MLK", ... LP, Vinyl record album
The debut album from the band that brought you that classic hit "In The Summertime". The rest of the record follows in the same vein – bluesy but with lots of kazoo, harmonica, jug playing and western saloon piano playing which makes it all pretty entertaining. Almost all of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
The first album from Steely Dan, and already a leading light in the world of 70s rock! The album's got a bit less of the polish of later years, but is still filled with gems – the kind of tunes that nobody ever seemed to pen before, and which few other groups could match later – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hey Spud boy! You need this record. Definitely underrated in the grand scheme, Oh No! finds the boys rocking a much more straightforward, nerdy computer funk sound. It sort of takes a page from the 80s Kraftwerk playbook with the grid-patterned 80s computer tomfoolery, albeit with a far more ... LP, Vinyl record album
