Great sounding copy. The record is clean and shiny but there are lots of light marks and hairlines but no heavy marks. Gave this a quick test play and it still sounds great with crystal clear audio playback, very light background crackle on occasion. Plays Excellent.

Thank You for looking at my auction. I wish you good luck in your bidding and hope to hear from you soon. 


I use the record collector grading system when grading records with the addition of a + or - when appropriate in order to give the most accurate description possible. I have also provided my own interpretation of what the gradings mean to me. All records are visually graded in normal light and under artificial light to ensure the item is correctly advertised.

I have 20 years experience of collecting and grading records and do as much as possible to ensure buyers are happy with their purchases.


The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any exta items, such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition.

My interpretation - Shop Condition. At most a handful of the tiniest hairline marks might be visible under bright light. Very very minor edge/corner wear to cover may be present (as usual from a new LP picked up from a record shop rack) is accceptable.


The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.

My Interpretation - Very well cared for and hardly played. Lovely gloss to vinyl which is clean. No scratches but a handful of light surface marks acceptable. One or two light scratches that cannot be felt and don't affect play in any way are also acceptable. Cover etc may have normal light storeage wear or minor creasing and ageing.


The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects, is accepttable.

My Interpretation - Lots of light surface marks and scratches. Some light clicks and/or minor distortion etc are acceptable. Fingermarks and dirt on the vinyl may also be acceptable. Cover etc in normal condition for age with average wear and tear, some creasing and minor staining, writing on labels and cover may be acceptable.


The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration etc.

My Interpretation - Vinyl is badly marked with scuffs/scratches/surface marks etc. Vinyl plays with lots of hiss/clicks/jumps etc. May also have extensive groove wear. Cover etc will be bent/scuffed/stained/torn etc.


The record is still just playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise etc:it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.

My Interpretation - Vinyl is knackered and sounds like a frying breakfast when it ain't jumping or clicking. Cover etc will be badly worn, torn, stained or defaced etc.


The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.

My Interpretation - Awful! Only offered for sale if extremely rare.


The record is unplayable or might even be broken and is only of use as a collection filler.

My Interpretation - Speaks for itself.

Sometimes a record may be graded visually and aurally. This usually applies to a record that looks badly marked but plays superbly. This is common, particularly with 1950's & 1960's records that can look 'Good' but play 'Excellent' or above. In these cases I would normlly assess the grading as being somewhere between the two.

NOTE:- The above gradings differ from Goldmine and other publications grading systems so please read carefully before bidding.

Some of the items that I offer will be play-graded, but some will not. This is purely to do with the amount of time I have available and nothing else. Therefore if the description does not state the record has been play-graded then it has not been so. All play-graded descriptions are based on how the record sound on my system.

I do have a vacuum cleaning machine which I may use when cleaning records. This is used with top quality L'Art Du Son cleaning fluid. If a record has been cleaned with this beforehand then I will detail this in the listing. I am unable to vacuum clean all listings due to time constraints, however I will clearly indicate this in any listings.
