Auction Description

Jimi Hendrix
"Smash Hits" LP

Original 1969 USA stereo pressing.
Giant poster is not included.

Reprise Records # MS 2025


Looks strong VG (close too VG+) with a few light scratches and sleeve scuffs on each side that did not show up in photos. Both sides played well for me with excellent sound and no skips.

Has scuffs as seen in photos.
No seam splits.


Grading Scale:

All grades are based on close visual inspection under a bright light source.  Records are not play tested unless stated otherwise in the listing (i.e. "played well for me," or "had excellent sound").  You may also sometimes see a record or album cover with a split grade, for example "VG++ to NM" or "VG to VG+."  Split grades are given because we base our grading on a number system from 1-10, with ten being the highest grade.  So, for example, since VG++ is from 8.0 to 9.0 and NM is 9.0 to 10, a record that we grade as being a "9" is at the borderline between VG++ and NM.  In our estimation, this item is at the very least a strong example of the lower grade - or possibly a slightly lesser example of the higher grade.  A split grade is also sometimes given if one side of the record or cover is better than the other.  In that case, it will be noted in the listing as "VG / VG+" or "VG++ / NM" indicating one side is better condition than the other.

Mint (M) = A perfect 10.  Only used for sealed items - record sealed inside is assumed to be mint, but please note we will not open a sealed item to inspect for any possible manufacturing defects
NM = 9 to 10.  Excellent; very little if any wear.  Top grade for used items.
EX = 8 to 9. Has very minor wear. Will still look and sound excellent.
VG+ = 7 to 8.  Has minor wear.  Still looks nice - still sounds nice - might have light surface noise in some places.
VG = 6 to 7.  Has moderate wear.  Scuffs/scratches are more noticeable.  Music still sounds fine, but you will also hear background surface noise in places.
G+ = 5 to 6.  Moderate to heavier wear.  Has surface noise, but should not drown out music or skip.  Might not be for serious audiophiles, but more casual listeners will still enjoy despite the flaws.
G = 4 to 5.  Heavy wear.  The vinyl and/or cover will have many scuffs, scratches and/or other defects.  Audiophiles should probably avoid.
