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.

If you ask us, this is Larry Heard's finest moment, combining the raw energy of early Chicago house with a jazzy sensibility, warm tones on the keyboards and a spare approach that gives all the elements room to breath. A modern classic! 12-inch, Vinyl record
Another great early house record on Trax, by Mickey Oliver, one of the original Hot Mix 5 who's built a reputation more on mixing than on his records, though this one's no slouch. Who'd have thought you could build such an irresistible groove with just a drum machine, bass synth and 8 bit sampler? 12-inch, Vinyl record
"Disco Nights" is one of the greatest grooves ever from GQ – a tightly-stepping number that's every thing a rollerskating track should have been at the end of the 70s! The tune builds wonderfully from the very first beat – keeping time with a very sharp focus, but also ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
A great little club track from Vaughan Mason – cut years after his rollerskating hit, but with a similar sense of space and time! The track's clearly picking up on a house groove, but has a nice spare approach, with beats that never go too over the top – and more of a focus on a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
