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 may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw,
such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-,
or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount,
and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has
been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing.
Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Some of the heaviest work to come from the African scene of the 70s – the initial offering of the Ngozi Family – a group who clearly take strong inspiration from the Cream years of the UK scene, but who also come across with a grittier, punkier vibe overall – thanks to lean, ...

A strange and beautiful session of tracks that mix african percussion with jazzy rhythms, and slight touches of exotica. The album features the group of Chick Foster, a highly percussive combo with a lineup that includes bass, drums, percussion, and flute. Prince Onago plays conga with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic session of pounding percussion – quite possibly the most successful entry into this earthy genre that hit the recording scene at the end of the 50s!

One of those records that definitely lives up to its cover – as it's not only a great mish-mash of styles, it's also got some 80s instrumental currents that might come as a surprise if you know other records on the Soundway label!

One of the most mindblowing albums of Indian music we've ever heard from the early 60s – a set that doesn't focus on sitar or sarod, but on the deft tabla work of Chatur Lal – a really stunning musician! The spare set features long tracks, and just Chatur's tablas and voice alongside ... LP, Vinyl record album
The group's name means "village people" in their native Java – but the sound here is way different than the big disco act of the time!

One of the greatest albums on the Bethlehem label – and one of the first albums as a leader by the legendary Booker Ervin! At the time of the set, Ervin had come off a great stint with the Charles Mingus group – one that inflected his rootsy Texas tenor tones with a sharper modern edge ... LP, Vinyl record album
This is some of the most wonderful stuff that Ike Quebec ever recorded, but oddly, it was not issued until 1981, and even then, it only appeared briefly (this really is a tough one to find). Ike at the helm of a great hard bop sextet, with Stanley Turrentine playing as his fantastic young self, ... LP, Vinyl record album
