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.
A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface,
and will most likely play with surface noise throughout.
May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.
Additional Marks & Notes

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.
The best Tony Allen project we've ever heard – largely because of the work by both artists involved! Hypnotic Brass Ensemble take on Allen's "Losun" – but they play the tune anew, as if it were one of their own – in an amazing style that features stepping rhythms from ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Kokolo pick up a bit more of a Latin groove than usual – mixing it in with their fierce Afro Funk riffing, and making for a very sweet little tune!

Nice 12" single pressing of the classic "Dusic", a great electric funk groover, made famous by a million west coast hip hop samples! The single also features the long version of the track! 12-inch, Vinyl record
The other single from one-hit-wonders Indeep. The cut has almost the same feel as "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life", with an insistent beat and a propulsive bass pedal, and a sort of chirping funky guitar line, but at a slightly slower tempo. The scratch versions don't actually have ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
2 stone stunners from Salsoul Orchestra – both of them great! "Magic Bird" has a very similar feel to Earth Wind & Fire's "Getaway" – stepping out with a soaring and righteous groove. And "Getaway" is a darker tune – lots of bass at the bottom, ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
An amazing groover from Juicy – one of those tunes that carries with it all the sounds of its era, yet makes them resonate with the feel of a classic! "Sugar Free" is a tune that bumps along slowly on a wicked bassline – stepping its way to a sweet little chorus that really ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
