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.

Pete Rugolo conducted these lush orchestrations for this classic June Christy record. This EP contains the tracks "Day Dream", "Sing Something Simple", "The Wind", and "This Year's Kisses". Christy's presentation is beautifully poignant. 7-inch, Vinyl record
The Reflections were a great lost soul group who cut one album for Capitol, plus a handful of singles. This nice one from 1975 features 2 strong cuts by the band – both with arrangements by Bert De Coteaux. "Three Steps" is a midtempo number, written by JR Bailey – and the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Fantastic work by Lou Rawls – recorded live and produced by David Axelrod! "Southside Blues" is mostly a monologue by Lou – really great stuff about our home, the southside of Chicago – and oddly, the single cuts out before the song actually begins! "Shadow Of ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Post-Brunswick work by Barbara Acklin – and pretty darn nice! "Raindrops" has a great little groove – very similar to the loping Chi-soul approach that Barb virtually invented at Brunswick in the late 60s, and a perfect fit for her righteous and bubbling vocals. "Here ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
