THIS WEEK we have an amazing jazz collection. All records came from the same owner. Most of the LP's are in original shrink with original sleeves. Most items are in Mint Minus condition. We do not like to grade M- due to certain collectors, though we will stress that these LP's are a step above the Jazz LP's we normally encounter. No initials on the labels or jackets. Most of the sleeves appear excellent with little to no signs of shelf wear. Please read items for descriptions on any conditions or pressing specifications. Good luck.

*All items are original issues (or vintage issues) unless otherwise stated. Please carefully read descriptions and ask us questions.
COVER / VINYL /// our records are listed as cover first, then vinyl. In cases of 45's or 12"s this is also used if there is a difference between one side and the other.
SEALED /// check descriptions for any specifics about a sealed record.
M- /// a fine copy, could include minuscule damage but overall effect is shiny and new. could be opened and played only a few times. in the event it never had shrink wrap or has been shelved for a few years, minor dust.
VG++ /// a strong copy, cover having light signs of wear or age. possible issues may include spindle wear, light pen writing, faint creasing, papers scuffs, light surface marks that don't affect play.
VG+ /// a decent copy, cover may have pen writing, creasing, small splits, ringer, light to mid edgewear. vinyl may have surface marks, play with some spots of noise, but overall decent and 100% playable.
VG /// an ok copy, cover may have ringwear, edgewear, splits, pen, tape, etc. obvious signs of wear and age. vinyl will have many light marks and usually an even amount of surface noise. labels could have damage, pen writing, spindle wear.
VG- // not a good copy. this is a good option for dj's and novice collectors. we try to only sell vg- records that are playable on our system. these will all have a fair amount of noise, but the music will be "winning the war" is what we aim for. Covers may be very worn aged and damaged. water damage. label damage. if a vg- record is cracked and playable, it will be noted in the listing.
TERMS /// swnap (slight warp not affecting play), wlp (white label promo), b/w (backed with, b side)
SEALED /// again, records are 100% buyer responsibility. Please, ask questions before bidding.
