💿 former long time collector of original 80's and 90's Compact Discs if its added to my collection then its on CD 💿

VG+💿

“Will Show Signs That It Was Played And Otherwise Handled By A Previous Owner Who Took Good Care Of It”
(should be near mint then)

Descriptions like VG++++++ baffle me if it was that good of a plus then why not grade it near mint?
most VG+ i have bought on Discogs are in dreadful condition.

As for NM the last batch of NM CD's I have bought have been yellow on the top due to tarnished cigarette smoke, broken jewel cases (that sellers blame the post service) however I find strange because the snapped prongs are never in the packing or case do they suddenly vanish? more like they are sent out already smashed...

There are only a few good sellers on Discogs the rest sell battered, smelly, yellow tobacco stained CDs full of scuffs as NM.

however a small few sellers actually sell VG+ graded items that have actually been better than NM and closer to Mint! 💿

I own CDs over 27 year old that have been “Played and handled” and are just that still as new and have sold them as such with 💯feedback

handle CDs this way they will last a life time 💿

CD’s… 💿…Cloud services fail, Hard drives crash. LPs wear out., as long as you don't scratch them, CDs stay put. 💿

There Is A Star (Galactic Space Race) I thought was the better version on the remix CD and even beats the the original.

yet another pointless set of mixes! eventually the constant remakes and remixes it will just end up sounding like a totally different track!!
