Alan Vega, Collision Drive, Vinyl LP [Celluloid, VG 408, 529813, France]
Vinyl is VG. Record clicks for a few revolutions on the opening track, and there is some background here and there, but otherwise no marks and only the faintest of hairlines. Looks great actually, though has obviously been played.
Cover is VG+ with minor shelf wear and no creasing. See photos.
Please read the descriptions carefully, I've tried to keep them concise. I use the Record Collector Goldmine Standard for grading: M, M-, VG+, VG, G+, G.
Records are graded conservatively
Mint (M) Absolutely perfect in every way. Certainly never been played, possibly still sealed.
Near Mint (NM or M-) A nearly perfect record and sleeve. An LP in near mint condition looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and removed the shrink wrap.
Very Good Plus (VG+) Record shows some signs of play, otherwise taken good care of. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Picture sleeves and LP inner sleeves will have some slight wear, lightly turned up corners, or a slight seam split. An LP cover and inner sleeve may have slight signs of wear also and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation or corner indicating it was taken out of print and sold at a discount.
Very Good (VG) Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. LP Cover and Inner sleeve will show signs of shelf wear, creasing and sticker removal.
Good (G), Good Plus (G+) A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear. A cover or sleeve will have seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm the object.
You can read more about the Standard on the Record Collectors Guild website.
