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.
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.
A not-so-surprisingly (given the pedigree!) later EPMD effort, and a smartly-titled one to boot – here they are, living up to their substantial legacy with a pretty strong, and these days underappreciated set – still going strong in the latter half of the 90s! Quite a few cuts on here ... LP, Vinyl record album
How 50 manages to stand out as such a genuinely exciting MC is in such a crowded field of street hip hop is as mysterious as it is beside the point. Dr. Dre's love for that minimalist ghetto synth orchestra sound is in full depth here, this is probably as strong as any production work he's ever ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the greatest hip hop acts from the early days of Sugar Hill – but a group who don't often get the same sort of cred as the label's bigger names at the time! The Crash Crew have a youthful energy that really lives up to their name – a loose approach to rhyme that sounds ... LP, Vinyl record album
If 2 mixes of the seminal electro/jazz classic "Rain Forest" isn't enough to sell you on this album, you might like to know you'll really get your fix for 808 and 909 on these nice jazzy tracks, that really did sound like the future of music to us back in the 80s. Also includes "King ... LP, Vinyl record album
Too Short's follow up to Born To Mack, with the same raw, stripped down Bay Area vibe. It's too bad that gangsta, pimp and street rhymes have gone on to become such a cliche, but when we hear these early classics, we're reminded of how fresh this stuff was at the time. Still sounds great today, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Battle record courtesy Darth Fader, for your cutting pleasure. No tracks listed, but plenty of breaks and beats. Features some crazy cover art from Dug One, who went on to make the Wave Twisters movie along with Q-Bert. LP, Vinyl record album

Streetwise raps from Freddie Gibbs, backed by inventive production from Madlib – here on one of the best records yet on 'Lib's own Madlib Invazion imprint! If you'll forgive us a little bit of repetition – because we KNOW we've written this before – there's just something extra ... LP, Vinyl record album
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
