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.
Single from RZA in his early days as Prince Rakeem, before any Wu-Tang releases, but with a nod to the future in the titles. It's sounds surprisingly nice in this day and age. RZA's delivery is loud, measured and clear – like a lot of late 80s, early 90s MC's. The beats are straight up, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
NERD makes a catchy hip hop/electro funk jam about a subject you don't often hear about on modern pop radio – namely the girls' trip to the powder room at the club and what's really going on there. A-choo! A-choo! "Everybody Nose" has a jittery production to say the least – ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Nice, slow pre-Chronic production by Dr. Dre. The noisy mix includes added samples in the Bomb Squad style. Somethingtabumpinyacar is an instrumental version with a short monologue by DOC. Portrait of A Masterpiece is an uptempo lp cut. 12-inch, Vinyl record
3rd Bass' biggest commercial hit, taking on Vanilla Ice, if not by name, at least in concept, but the cut to check for here is "Derelicts..." , produced by Prince Paul and remixed by the Stimulated Dummies. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Both produced by KRS. "Freedom of Speech '88" is completely different, and better, than the LP version. "Na Touch The Just" 7-minute extended dub-style version of the LP version with new lyrics. 12-inch, Vinyl record
A nice little soul tune from Ronny Jordan – lifted from the Light To Dark album, and featuring heavy beats and a warm lead vocal. The best bit's the instrumental one, though – where Ronny's guitar comes to the forefront! 12-inch, Vinyl record
