Very Good (VG)
A-side plays with some light surface noise most notable at the run-in which is soon pushed below a strong sounding playback, remaining present but lessening in prominence as the track progresses. Music remains in the foreground from start to finish.
B-side plays stronger in a similar fashion, a richer sound with less noise.
Visual Grade: VG. Conservative grading on the basis of slight haziness from pressing, but still far from dull with plenty of shine! Otherwise clean VG+.

system with generalised descriptions of each grade
Please refer to the above Listing Information for specific information regarding the condition of this record
Grades are given on a visual basis, if two grades are given in the format Grade 1/Grade 2, these correspond to the A-side/B-side respectively.
Near Mint (NM)
Surfaces appear unplayed. Used with hesitation, even for many brand new records.
In typical indoor
lighting an EX graded record will appear to be near mint until
very closely inspected.
If there’s a mark you can easily point out in typical indoor lighting, it’s not EX.
Strong Very Good Plus (Strong VG+)
As per the qualities of EX and NM, a record which has seen only light play at most. Allowance for a low number of light marks. The typical Strong VG+ is some 2 or 3 light/inaudible lines from EX to NM.
Very Good Plus (VG+)
some light marks but still retaining a generous sheen and
respectable overall cleanliness.
Well cared for with occasional light use. Shouldn’t leave you longing for a cleaner copy.
Strong Very Good (Strong VG)
In order to maintain a respectable standard set for the VG+ grading, records on the lower end of VG+ are graded as Strong VG.
Very Good (VG)
Surfaces still hold a healthy sheen with a lesser cleanliness than a VG+ graded record. Played but full of play yet.
Very Good Minus (VG-)
display a lessened but still present sheen, light marks in a higher frequency
or may fit the descriptions of the above grades with the presence of feelable
marks (within reason).
The majority of VG- graded records will be enjoyed by myself on a sensitive Hi-Fi and will often be fit to DJ.
Good Plus (G+)
As per the above
description with a higher tolerance for marks, lessened sheen but typically
still reflective in appearance. Quite often plays above expectations and
depending on the pressing may very well be fit to DJ.
G+ is a well-established grade which is still to be respected for playable copies of desirable records.
Lessened sheen, light marks throughout or the presence of larger pronounced feelable marks.
Heavily used. Marked throughout or with a number of larger feelable marks, will usually play without skipping.
Cracked or warped beyond repair, skips, sticks, hitches.
