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.
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.

The game changing Def Jam classic! Profane party anthems galore, and the Beasties would distance themselves from much of the attitude of this album, making their career arc from stoopid (as opposed to stupid) to thoughtful and playful innovators one of the more interesting artistic evolutions of ...

Major label debut from the Memphis innovators. Waaay before winning an Oscar, these guys were watching too many late night horror flicks, and it shows. Classic M-Town buck that influenced the entire Southern Rap genre. Contains "Prophet Posse", "Spill My Blood", "Tear Da ... LP, Vinyl record album
21 tracks deep, and with a lot of guest appearances by folks like De La Soul, Q-Tip, Chantay Savage, Erykah Badu, and Cee-Lo. No I.D. Produced most of this, and a few tracks were done by Doug Infinite. Includes "1 '2 Many", "Reminding Me Of Sef", "My City", "Real ... LP, Vinyl record album

A stellar collection of some of GMF and the Furious Five's best early cuts for Sugarhill, all with the legendary Doug Wimbish, Keith Le Blanc, Skip McDonald rhythm section!

Remember the days when rappers would put pictures of their dancers on the cover of their records? Another Kane classic, with cold chillin' beats by Kane, Marley Marl, Prince Paul, Easy Mo Bee, Mister Cee, and a pre-new jack (well, barely) Teddy Riley. Classic middle school hip hop from the days ... LP, Vinyl record album
Their second album, and though not quite as nice as Original Stylin', still an essential piece of Philly hip hop history. The group's no longer associated with the Hilltop Hustlers, and have adopted a slightly more slick approach to their sound, producing themselves on this effort. Includes " ... 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
