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.

A really nice album of trippy rock tracks with lots of nice folksy touches! The group's a trio, all of whom sing lead vocals from time to time – and instrumentation includes organ, harmonium, piano, percussion, guitars, electric harpsichord, mandolin, and cello – all swirling around in ...

A rare US release by one of Japan's hippest combos of the 70s – The Sadistic Mika Band, a group who'd absorbed a heck of a lot of prog rock styles, but who also had a weird sound all its own.

The young Kate Bush is in fantastic form here – looking a bit goofy on the cover, sure – but firmly establishing that sound that would make the lady a genre unto herself!

A live set recorded in Paris in 1977! The Soft Machine of the period included John Marshall on drums and percussion, Karl Jenkins on piano and keyboards, John Etheridge on guitars, Rick Sanders on violin, and Steve Cook on bass.

The end of the road for the Velvet Underground – but a set that's also one of the group's best-remembered albums too! The record marked a big shift for the group – a move to Atco from Verve, continuing to work without John Cale – and the sound is possibly more rockish and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Thin Lizzy's 70s rock masterpiece! Sure it's the mainstream radio fare of the period, but this is one of those albums that put the classic in classic rock! The definitive Gorham-Robertson twin guitar attack keeps this set rocking nicely and Lynott's in prime form with a batch of extra classy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Laura Nyro's second album in her legendary early run for Columbia Records – and an effort that's a bit more dramatic than the first! Laura's handling all arrangements herself this time, and they're conducted by Jimmy Haskell – but the overall sound is almost as spare as if Nyro were ... LP, Vinyl record album
Some of the darkest acoustic work that Dylan ever recorded – and filled with beautiful songs like "With God On Our Side", "North Country Blues", "Only A Pawn In Their Game", "The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll", "Boots Of Spanish Leather", ... LP, Vinyl record album
