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.
Killer work from this legendary vocal group – a key percursor in the development of soul! Although it's easy to write the Dominoes off as some sort of weak pop/soul doo wop group, because they cut some singles that sounded more like the Platters than hardcore R&B, don't forget that the ...

Hank Ballard definitely falls into the "one and only" category – especially with work as great as his sounds on this classic album for King Records! Hank sings in a style that's as badass as his look on the cover – as raw in these cuts as James Brown was during the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
James' moving tribute to the late Little Willie John – a big influence, and a fellow label mate at King. There are some great deep soul tracks on here, and lots of groovy instrumentals. Plus, the cover's got a picture of James holding a Little Willie John album, and looking very touched. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Obscure bit of soulful gospel produced by James Brown for King. Kay Robinson's got a great voice, and the arrangements are similar to some of James' hard soul albums from the time. There's no breakbeat cuts here, but the music is quite strong, and given the strength of the arrangements, you'll ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice stuff from one of our favorite R&B bandleaders of the 50s! These excellent tracks pop along with a tight rolling groove and a lively sense of rhythm that was often unmatched by some of the other sleepier groups of the time – and Bradshaw did a good job of recruiting some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Killer work by one of King's best singers! This set features classic Hank Ballard singles from the 50s – compiled into one LP with an image of Hank on the front, stretching out under a spotlight. Titles include some hits – like "Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go" – plus ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great album of mellow modern soul tracks recorded in Chaka's post-Rufus years! The record was produced by the great Arif Mardin, the man who made so many of the 70s Atlantic soul records work so well – and he handled Chaka's voice with a sweet sweet sound that you don't always get on her ... LP, Vinyl record album
Not the greatest album by this East Coast funk band – and one that shows them hitting a bit more of a crossover club sound, with lots of up-tempo funk tracks that kind of aim for a disco groove. Fortunately, the instrumentation's pretty good – and the album actually has some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
