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.
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.

One of the sweetest new artists we've heard on the Sonar Kollektiv label in a long long time – one who's working here in the more abstract mode that SK's been putting down of late, but who also manages to do so with the deeper soul that we first loved in the label years back! The style's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Modern tunes – but with a very classic groovy feel! Of all the Italian efforts to take an older lounge sound and update it for the modern dancefloor, the work of Nicola Conte and the Schema label has been some of the best. This 13 track set offers proof of Conte's genius – and offers ... LP, Vinyl record album
A sweetly soaring trumpeter, with a mighty nice groove – one that seems to make equal use of flowing lines on keyboards as well as it does his own lead sound – served up here in a mode that uses electric elements to make Sefi Zisling's acoustic trumpet really shine! The rhythms are ... LP, Vinyl record album
The cover's got sort of an imagined urban landscape on the front, and there's definitely an imaginary sense to the music – a blending of Brazilian elements with contemporary touches, but all at a level that still keeps things relatively intimate throughout! Fachada plays drums and a range of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great album from the late 70's, featuring the excellent jazz vocalist backed by a totally tight group led by Gildo Mahones. The sound is deep and loud, and there's some nice phat bass on here, particularly on the intro to "Baltimore Oriole", which has a nice break sound at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
