12-inch, Vinyl record

...

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.

Chicago Connection, 1986. Very Good (pic cover)
A nice soulful bit of Chicago house – with very heavy drums, and great vocals by Jimi Polo! The cut's got a nice hook, and has that crossover sound that got house played more than usual on the Chicago soul stations. All mixes are good, except for the horrible "celebrities like it" ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Atlantic, 1990. Near Mint- (pic cover)
One of the first strong R&B cuts to go hip hop, with beats that are great, and which mix together perfectly with so many other tracks from the time. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Mercury, 1981. Very Good
THE standout cut from Central Line – a track so big that it got the group noticed over here on our side of the Atlantic, and forever gave them a place in the hallowed halls of 80s groove! The tune chugs along at a great roller skating rhythm – with some spare use of keyboards that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
