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.
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.
Tight orchestral material from Zaccarias, and featuring a set of bossa and samba groovers played by a heavy ensemble reed section. The multiple reed approach works well, and gives the tracks a good punch that while not sounding exactly like classic bossa, does make them groove in a swinging way. ... LP, Vinyl record album
A bit later vintage than some of Milton's 60s bossa work, but one of his nicest albums from the 80s – and filled with great little jazzy tracks that are tighter than some of his other albums from the time! The group's a trio, and the tracks include many nice ones by some of the better MPB ... LP, Vinyl record album

Great work from this legendary Brazilian musician – titles that include "Abri A Porta", "Viajante", "Quem Me Levara Sou Eu", "Xotenava", "Forro Em Rolandia", "Essel Velho Sol", "Caxinguele", and "Esse Mato Essa ... LP, Vinyl record album
A tasty session of west coast Brazilian grooves – cut by the great percussionist Paulinho Da Costa, with a group that includes Claudio Slon, Larry Williams, and Lee Ritenour. The record's got a very nice breezy feel – with a sound that's similar to some of the Fantasy Brazilian LPs of ... LP, Vinyl record album
