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.
An excellent bit of modern soul from Chicago – a group featuring lead vocalist Joyce Faison, who'd also done some backup work on other records at the time. Like some of the other titles on the Erect label, the groove here is a mix of mellow soul and 80s groove – and the best tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
A damn great bit of work from the legendary Al Green – maybe one of his best records ever – and in fact, maybe one of greatest soul albums of all time! The set's got a style that's really genre-defining – not the previous southern soul of a few years before, but also not the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great early work from Jose Feliciano – and definitely the "bag full of soul" promised in the title, as the album's got a wonderfully heartfelt feel all the way through! Jose's voice is warm and beautifully melodic, and the arrangements are a bit more straight ahead than on later ... LP, Vinyl record album
Not to be confused with Donny Hathway Live, this album was issued after Donny's untimely death, and features rare live material from his classic years – most recorded during the same concerts on Donny Hathaway Live! As the fame of his first concert album will attest, Donny's an extremely ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very weird bit of stoner rock with a slight soul edge, and kind of a rock version of the Isaac Hayes baroque approach to pop covers. Danny Cox performs a number of Dylan and Beatles tunes – like "Dear Prudence", "My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Baby Blue", "Hey ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantastic is right – a gem of an early set from Jose Feliciano, and just the sort of record that helped set him apart from his contemporaries! The tracks are mostly Anglo pop tunes and standards, but Jose delivers the material with a really unique sound – heartfelt vocals with a really ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic testament to the genius of Stevie Wonder – a collection that brings together some of his most important work of the 70s, plus a few new tracks too – all graced with a back cover note that proudly states "written, arranged, and produced by Stevie Wonder"! That note ... LP, Vinyl record album
A mad bit of soul psychedelia from Prince – a record that sounds better and better over the years, and which stands out from most of his 80s work thanks to some really unique production and songwriting! After Purple Rain, Prince did anything but wince in the face of living up to such a ... LP, Vinyl record album
This was the moment when it seemed like Go Go was really going to break out huge – Trouble Funk recording for a major label, with lots of wide exposure, and plenty of critical acclaim that made GoGo seem like it really was the next big thing in black music. The album captures the group live ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great post-Scepter album by Dionne Warwick – one that still has her working with Burt Bacharach, but at a level that's somehow more mature, more adult than even before! There's a gentle quality here that gets beyond the straighter pop of Warwick's 60s hits, and moves into the realm ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Eric Dolphy's lasting classics – and possibly the ultimate album of "new thing" jazz from the mid 60s! The record's got an even sharper edge than previous Dolphy recordings for Prestige – a really unique combination of instrumentation that includes Freddie Hubbard on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mellow Gravy is right! Brother Jack swings it nice and cool with help from Joe Dukes, Gene Ammons, and Harold Vick – using his patented two-tenor sound for a very full-on groove that makes this one of the best of his early 60s Prestige sessions. The tracks are all around the 5 to 7 minute ... LP, Vinyl record album
