Hi Ebay Enthusiasts,

This record is part of an amazing selection of vinyl which I have inherited. The music spans from 50's - 90's including rockabilly,country,classical, rock'n'roll, blues, rock, jazz,funk, soul/northern soul, reggae, ska and afrobeat, hip hop and r&b... which I will be listing over the next few months. There are lots of rarities, although there are some reproductions of hard to find records. I am not a connoisseur neither do I claim to be an expert. I am just a music lover who appreciates good music. I will be grading by visual inspection and listening to the record. If you have any questions concerning a particular record feel free to contact me. I will try, as best I can, to give an accurate and honest description. If you feel my description has been inaccurate, please contact me first before leaving negative feedback..so we can resolve the issue speedily.

I endeavour to entertain customer satisfaction, should a problem arise with your item please contact me immediately by e-mail. A full refund is available on return of the item within 7 days of receipt.

Unless buying a vinyl record that  is SEALED, or in NEAR-MINT condition,there will always be some type of surface sounds, or background noise, known as pops and crackling.
If the LP has been played a couple of times, it can never be perfect. This is especially noticeable in classical and jazz records, which have quiet passages.
You are buying vinyl LPs because they sound better than CDs, however the pops and crackling come with an LP.

M = Never been played or used.
NM = This record appears virtuously flawless. If there is a flaw, it should be very hard to see. Very minor scuffs and very little else can appear on the vinyl. It should play clean with a crisp fidelity throughout, without any noise over the flaw.
EX = Minor scuffs,marks or light scratches which are only slightly visible. There may be more than a few, but, it should play clean with a crisp fidelity throughout, with some minor background noise permissible.

VG =Record shows wear and has surface scuffs or light hairline marks. The vinyl still has a good luster, but the flaws will be noticeable to the naked eye and may cause some surface noise.
G = Loss of lustre to vinyl. several scratches and heavy marks (deep enough to feel with fingernail) that will affect the sound and groove wear will be noticeable. Will play without  sticking or jumping but will have surface noise throughout.
F = Looks and plays bad, possibly skips. Plenty of hiss, clicks, or pops.

P = Just a collection filler, to look at.


Mint (M) = No stickers ,address labels or writing on the covers or labels. No tears or seam splits or wear to the cover. Flawless.
Near Mint (NM) = The cover appears virtuously flawless, with only very minor signs of wear and/or age.
Excellent (EX) = Artwork is clean and still close to perfect as can be. Some impression to the cover (minor ring wear) but not the ink is permissable. Light creasing is permitted,no wrinkles or bends or anything obtrusive to the eye.
VG =Artwork is clean with slightly more aging. The back of the cover usually gives away the age of the cover. Flat white paper will be somewhat yellow yet no stains or mildew from water damage. Some minor wear to the seams or spine, but no tears or holes popping through.
G =Several (but not all of the following flaws may apply): Seam splits,large marker writing,major seam splits,significant ring wear, damaged corners,tears cuts, gouges ,masking or duct tape seam repairs or other flaws and damage. Probably only used as a collection filler until a better copy can be found.

Please note there may be a difference between grading with a (+/-) , all this means is that there is a very slight upgrade/downgrade.
