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.
Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.

David Bowie's late career peak arrived just days before he left us!

Here it is! Once again ... LP, Vinyl record album
King Curtis brings the sound of Memphis up to the New York studios of Atlantic Records – working here in an all-instrumental mode that serves up his own sax-heavy takes on the big 60s hits of Stax Records! The album's maybe a bit telling – given the way that a year later, Atlantic took ... LP, Vinyl record album
James Brown plays organ on this one, but it's mostly an effort to showcase various other artists that he was producing at the time, and who traveled with him on the road. Includes cuts by Baby Lloyd, The Jewels, James Crawford, and a young Vicki Anderson. This stuff was cut years before the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Although Archie Bell & The Drells had recorded earlier with Gamble & Huff on Atlantic, this is their first album for the team's own label – and it's a killer!
