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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
A killer collection of work by Garnet Mimms – one of our favorite soul singers of the 60s, and a talent that we'd rank in the highest of the high in our soul book!

A solid bit of heavy funk – and one of the last strong-selling soundtracks of the blacksploitation era!

A lady in the streets – and a freak in the bedroom! Hey, that's not us making that claim – it's Denise, on the leadoff track of this excellent early 80s set! Denise really pushes herself for the record – almost reinventing her sound, and coming up as one of the Queens of ... LP, Vinyl record album
A bit later than classic vintage for Slave – although most of the group's best elements are still in place!

Nice and nasty work from Millie Jackson – a great illustration of the way her live shows were always rated-X compared to her studio work! Titles include "Lovers & Girl Friends", "Ugly Men", "This Is It", "Don't You Ever Stop Lovin Me", and "I ... LP, Vinyl record album
Muddy Waters definitely put the "unk" in funk – although back in his day, the word meant something different than in the 70s!

The first rumblings of the pop genius in Yello's music – a record that still has all the best quirky electronics of their first two sets, but which also focuses that energy into a sound that's often more direct and oddly hook-oriented on the best numbers!
