(UK pressing in the foil cover, with some edge wear and sticker remnants on one corner.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • 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.

Legend
Island, 1970s. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the best-selling albums ever from Bob Marley – a classic collection of work from his all-too-short career – and one that's gone onto become as famous as Marley's individual records themselves!

Columbia, 1982. Near Mint-
After leaving Island and moving onto Columbia, Third World got a bit more slick, and continued to work a reggae/pop/soul groove.

Second volume of sweet, soulful dubs, with Harry Mudie turning over the choicest pieces from his catalog of rhythms to the great King Tubby to dub up, and he does so in fine, fine form. Tubby's respectful but still radical reworking of these numbers is one of our favorite, though lesser known dub ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Marley & The Wailers – Live
Island, 1975. Near Mint-
A great global showcase for the growing power of Bob Marley – an excellent live set recorded in London in 1975, and a date that shows Bob and The Wailers working with the crowd in this really universal spirit! The group's almost got a funkier current here than on some of their studio record ... LP, Vinyl record album

McCoy Tyner

Expansions
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good
A really mindblowing session from McCoy Tyner – perfectly titled "Expansions" to showcase the change in his style at the time!
