"Don't Act Surprised" "5 Up - 1 Down"
Original Sweet Soul Harmony Rare Beauty Label

Record:  VG+ (storage warp, does not affect play) Sleeve:  New White Sleeve Label:  BEAUTY RECORDS # B-2144 (see photos for both sides) Format:  45 RPM (7 inch) Country:  United States Released:  1977 Matrix / Runout:      Side A -- B-2144-A      Side B -- B-2144-B


Mint/Sealed (M/S) – Only sealed records will be presumed M/S. 


Near Mint (NM) – The record shows no sign of wear, appears unplayed. NM looks like you just got it new from a record store and took off or slit the shrink wrap to take the record out.


Excellent (EX) – May show faint paper scuffs on the surface of the record, otherwise a very desirable copy. 

Very Good Plus (VG+) – Shows signs that it was played and handled by an owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces may show some slight wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that do not affect the listening experience. Other than light background noise, a VG+ record should have no loud pops or skips. 

Very Good (VG) –  Many of the signs found in a VG+ record are more noticeable in a VG record. Surface noise is noticeable (without skips) when played, especially in soft passages and during the intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise.

Very Good Minus (VG-) – A VG- grade is for a record that has more wear and noise than a VG, but still plays without skips.

Good (G) and Good Plus (G+) – A record in G or G+ condition can play through without skipping, yet it will have significant surface noise, scratches and/or visible groove wear. The only reason I would list a record in this condition is because of its rarity (considered a filler until a suitable copy shows up).

It is always recommended to clean vintage records prior to play.  This will enhance your listening experience by minimizing the typical background noise/static inherent in all vinyl records.
