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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Recorded in 1962, and a mix of classic baiao and forro tracks by Gonzaga, done with a bit more sophistication than on other albums – and some excellent production that has a strong echoey quality. Titles include "O Veio Macho", "Passaro Carao", "Forro De Ze ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wickedly wonderful record from Luiz Bonfa – one that has his bossa-inflected guitar style supported by larger arrangements by Marty Manning. The feel is kind of bossa meets 60s easy meets early CTI – as Manning's work reminds us a lot of the larger orchestrations penned by Don ... LP, Vinyl record album
A sweetly mellow album from singer Maria Creuza – recorded with a bit more of a modern feel than some of her previous albums for RCA, less bossa touches, and a more romantic sound overall – one that has her vocals drifting over serious arrangements that have kind of a sad and late night ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tight orchestral material from Zaccarias, and featuring a set of bossa and samba groovers played by a heavy ensemble reed section. The multiple reed approach works well, and gives the tracks a good punch that while not sounding exactly like classic bossa, does make them groove in a swinging way. ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Antonio Carlos Jobim's greatest records – and a perfect blend of his subtle bossa genius with the moody electric sound of CTI! Jobim plays electric and acoustic piano, guitar, and sings a bit – and Deodato handled the arrangements with a breezy brilliance that matches all the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic work from this Brazilian singer – with titles that include "Suas Maos", "Mundo Vazio", "Saudades De Mim", "Bom E Querer Bem", "E Preciso Dizer Adeus", and "Maria Que E Triste". LP, Vinyl record album
Heavenly work from this Brazilian singer of the early bossa years – working here with lush backings from Simonetti and the Orquesta RGE – on titles that include "Diplomacia", "Sonho Feliz", "Bom Dia Tristeza", "Bouquet De Izabel", "Mundo ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pure vocal magic – featuring the lovely Flora Purim at the height of her California powers – working in a sublime mix of jazz, fusion, and Brazilian rhythms – a sound that she virtually invented! The group on the set is one of her greatest of the time – with players that ... LP, Vinyl record album
