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.
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.
Classic work from the postwar scene on Hastings in Detroit – tracks that include "When I'm Gone", "Stranger In Your Town", "Big Chested Mama", "I Tried", "Single Man Blues", "Wife Lovin Blues", and "Brownskin Woman". LP, Vinyl record album
A nice French collection – featuring a number of Bluebird and Victor Records 78s by Doctor Clayton with Blind John Davis on piano – plus his "buddy" Albert Luandrew also singing with Davis on piano and Big Bill Broonzy on guitar. LP, Vinyl record album
Muddy's grooving hard and funky – with help from Cadet studio funksters like Charles Stepney, Phil Upchurch, Louis Satterfield, and Morris Jennings – one of the best ever of the once oft-maligned, now oft-beloved funk era Chess/Cadet albums! After The Rain has more of Muddy's classic ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice little collection of Bo Diddley's earlier work for Chess – put together in the early 70s, when Bo was in his Black Gladiator phase, as pictured on the cover – but featuring the rawer, rougher grooves of his initial recordings in the late 50s and early 60s! The Bo Diddley groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
He may be blind, but he's plenty satisfied – and so are we, with this excellent package of rare 78rpm recordings from Willie Johnson! The sound quality is great – which is important, as Willie's got a style of guitar that's almost lighter in tone than some of his contemporaries – ... LP, Vinyl record album
With a record like this, it's clear that Shakey Horton's the soul of blues harmonica – if not the king as well! The album's filled with wonderful instrumentals that really focus Horton's talents strongly – not used just as flavoring or an occasional solo to spice up a tune – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
An early set from Louisiana Red – a singer who'd shine more brightly in the early 70s on Atlantic, but one who's already got a very definite style here on an early album for Roulette! The album's got a gritty electric blues vibe that's more Chess Records than you might expect – Red's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Damn great work from Curtis Jones – a set that's definitely blues, but inflected with plenty of jazz too – thanks to Jones' unique phrasing on the vocals, and the sweet use of Hammond organ on the session! The lineup features Curtis on piano, with Johnny "Moose John" Walker ... LP, Vinyl record album
