This auction is for Ricky G. & The Rhythm Rockers My Life is a Mystery / I'm Gonna Leave Tejano Soul 7" 45 rpm Single on RicK Records (VG to VG+). This small label Tejano Soul 45 has some scratches and scuffs particularly on My Life is a Mystery but it plays very well with a little background but no skips or jumps. I'm Gonna Leave plays great with no apparent background. Please see the Goldmine Grading System below.
Mint (M) - Perfect in every way. Certainly never been played, possibly even still sealed.
Near Mint (NM or M-) - Shows no obvious signs of wear.
Very Good Plus (VG+)- A Very Good Plus record shows some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK". The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. The center hole will not have been misshapen by repeated play.
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. Groove wear will start to be
noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail)
that will affect the sound. Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or
stickers (or their residue) attached.
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
