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.

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 groovy organ/vibes cuts by Johnny, caught live in a slightly Latin-ish vein, at the Village Gate during the height of it's 60's Latin scene, with the addition of conga player Patato Valdes!

One of the best albums ever by Curtis Amy, and a tasty live set recorded during the period when he was beginning to steep himself in Coltrane influences, and stretch out his tenor sound a bit. The album's also notable for being an early appearance on wax by Roy Ayers, who is incorrectly listed in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Remarkable Carmell Jones, indeed – and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by this up-and-coming force on the LA scene at the start of the 60s! Jones was a player who really showcased something new on the west at the time – a move away from cool jazz, and the start of a deeper, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bud Shank's icy alto has been credited as one of the prime influences on the bossa movement in Brazil (partly because of his early 50's recordings with guitarist Laurindo Almeida), and this beautiful set brings him into play with a trio of Brazilian musicians that includes Joao Donato on piano. ...

A beautiful album of crispy cool jazz from the LA scene of the 50s – one that features the octet of Bill Perkins recorded live in Hollywood, but in a "special hi-fi theater recording" that has sound as sublime as his studio work! The group includes Perkins on tenor, Bud Shank on ... LP, Vinyl record album
A quartet session that has Les playing with Leroy Vinnegar on bass, Ron Jefferson on drums, and Joe Pass on guitar. Pass' guitar opens the group up nicely – expanding Les a bit past some of the gospel drenched work of earlier yesr. Tracks include "Maichen", "Bernie's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brilliant work from one of the most important forces on the LA scene of the 50s – and one of the few early albums Red Mitchell cut under his own name!

Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied!

Wild electric work from Les McCann – an album of free, open sounds that's quite a change from his styles of the 60s – and from most of his other work of the 70s too! Side one features an extended 26 minute track titled "The Lovers" – a slow-building number that has Les ... LP, Vinyl record album
