A. It Makes No Difference Now (2:27)
B. Fifteen Dollars A Week (2:35)

Condition: Visually, this record is in VG (Very Good) condition. The shellac is shiny and bright, with some scuffing and a little surface scratching. The labels are both clean and bright with no fading, markings, or wear, but there are some scratches and a little ding in the paper on side A. They also have some very mild wear on the outside edges. Both center holes are round with no wear at all on side B, and some minor wear on side A.

Play-ability: Side A starts with a couple ticks and some light distortion, but gets better quickly. There is a brief section with a loud ticking about half way through, and an occasional popping noise. Background hiss is very mild, and clicking noise is mild. Side A has a play-ability rating of VG (Very Good). Side B also has very mild background hiss and mild clicking noise. There are some scattered ticks and pops, but not a lot, and I heard very little distortion. This side has a play-ability rating of VG+ (Very Good Plus). The overall rating for the record is VG (Very Good).

Except for records that are still sealed, all our records are first cleaned by hand, and the 12” vinyl LP albums are further cleaned with a professional cleaning machine. After cleaning, all non-sealed records are played completely through and digitized onto our computer (the .WAV files are cleaned up using software). In our listings, we provide the standard VISUAL rating of the record, using the Goldmine rating system, but we also provide an accurate and conservative rating and description of the actual PLAY-ABILITY of the record, which will at least include whether the record plays through without skipping or repeating, and a description of the amount of background hiss, clicking noise, and louder popping noise. We may also mention other aspects of play-ability. Price is determined, at least in part, by the play-ability rating! We also provide generic replacements for any missing inner sleeves and/or album covers.

Please note: Digital WAV files with most of the play-ability problems cleaned up by software are available on request at no extra charge.
