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.
A great little harmony soul track – produced and arranged by Van McCoy, with a sad sweet feel that's every bit the best side of his early style! The track bubbles along in that great east coast AM radio feel – with a really catchy hook, and a slow sad style that's very different than ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two totally excellent cuts by the second version of The Bar-Kays – both with a super-dope vocal soul style that's more fitting of the Dramatics! "You're The Best Thing" isn't the famous female soul song, but a different cut – with great guitar behind some stellar harmonies! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
A great one by Jimmy – one of the best under-discovered soul writers of the 70s! The track has a stone mellow sound, with a great message delivered in a very heartfelt vocal, backed by some warm arrangements written and produced by Jimmy himself! 7-inch, Vinyl record
