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.
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.

Another stunner from Malena Perez – the lovely Latin-tinged diva who's ready to take the dancefloor by storm! "Praise The Day" is served up here with plenty of production touches from Osunlade – so much so that the track feels like some of the best on his own Yoruba label, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Nothing invisible here – because the single's a great one in the recent Schema mode – served up with lots of jazzy touches by the duo of Paolo Fedreghini and Marco Bianchi! Fedreghini and Bianchi are well known from their great debut on Schema – but they've teamed here with ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Kenny Dope's touch is all over this tasty little single – a good blend of house rhythms and Latin influences, served up with a very soulful finish! Kenny makes the thing percolate nicely, but never too over the top – sometimes with slightly acidish electronics that slip in the mix ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
