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.
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.
Marvin Gaye gets some fantastic help here from Norman Whitfield – whose production gives the record a much more righteous sound than some of Gaye's sweeter soul of the 60s – a really heavy undercurrent that strongly hints at modes to come! The vibe here isn't as fuzzed-out as on some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Marvin Gaye's last album for Motown – and a wonderful cap to a great run of sexy soul for the 70s – filled with great mellow grooves that rival the genius of his earlier work in the decade!

One of the classics, and an album that's filled with a sense of majesty and power that will knock you dead – despite the kind of silly cover of Stevie sitting on a hill, playing in the dirt! By this point, Stevie knows he's on top of the world as well he should – and he's honing the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Best-of compilation containing tracks that the Isleys recorded during their mid 60s stint at Motown. Includes big hits like "This Old Heart Of Mine" and "Take Me In Your Arms", plus other nice stuff like "Take Some Time Out For Love", "There's No Love Left", ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Eddie's classic dancefloor groovers for Tamla, with production and arrangements by the hit team of Frank Wilson and Leonard Caston!

A legendary album from the great Eddie Kendricks – a set that not only has the singer soaring on the kind of sublime old school vocal numbers he always did so well – but one that also has Eddie stepping out into some great dancefloor modes that would have a huge impact for years to come! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love Breeze finds Smokey effortlessly cutting back and forth from a funky 70s dancefloor soul mode to more delicate, classic soul steeped numbers and slow jams. He does it all very well on a set we overlooked for too many years! Titles include "Why You Wanna See My Bad Side", "Feeli ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful work from Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston – done in a style that's perhaps a bit more intimate, and a bit more sophisticated than some of Marvin's other duets, but still in the great Motown tradition of the 60s! On the set, Weston seems to bring out the sweeter sound of Marvin's voice ... LP, Vinyl record album
More of the Marvelettes' classic Motown grooves, and a track list that includes "Seeing Is Believing", "Love Silent, Love Deep", "Rainy Mourning", "Too Many Tears, Too Many Times", and their cover of "That's How Heartaches Are Made". LP, Vinyl record album
Although Smokey and crew are pictured in the front in the usual staid Motown matching suits – their hipper garb on the back cover belies the nice direction they've taken with this album, which shows the band hitting a more heavy soul style that's touched by a lot of the grooviness going ... LP, Vinyl record album
A killer collection of 60s Stevie Wonder work for Motown – almost a greatest hit of the label's greatest hits series – given how wonderful most of the tunes are!

A pivotal album from Stevie Wonder – one of his first really heady records, and a tremendous little set from start to finish! The Wonder heard here is light years from the simple pop of the early days – really stretching out both as a songwriter and musician – coming up with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
