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.
"Do It Baby" is probably the best-ever track by Redd Holt, with a stone cold breakbeat in the intro that was sampled by BDP and others, and some great grooves all the way through. His version of "I Shot The Sheriff" is pretty fantastically funky, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of the best early tunes by this sweet Philly group – a great entry into the "cop/love" genre, which flourished briefly in the early 70s – and a standout track that still grooves mighty hard! And why not – since the great Norman Harris wrote and produced? 7-inch, Vinyl record
One of the most beautiful soul singles of the early 70s! A great catchy chorus, and some stellar mellow soul production that just won't quit! The track was released later on Bobby's album on Buddah, but this is the earlier single on the Chain label, and it's got a b-side that wasn't on the LP. 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fantastic! Linda Jones' version of "For Your Precious Love" almost blows away the original Impressions version – she starts it with a long, southern-sounding monologue, crying out and speaking her mind over some slow backings long before the vocals come into play! "Don't ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
2 classics from the Olympics! "Philly Dog" is an excellent Northern Soul groover – one that begins with jangling vibes, and which has a hand clapping sound that will keep the dancefloor stomping all night long! "Western Movies" is one of the group's greatest cuts – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
