This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Warm, wonderful work from Irakere – a combo who are working here in a style that's more straightforward than some of their material from the 70s – but equally nice, and played with a rock-solid blend of Latin and jazz that comes off perfectly throughout! Chucho Valdes is at the head of ... LP, Vinyl record album
The late 50s and early 60s were certainly the golden era of this famous Latin vocal trio – and this nice Columbia issue (part of their obscure "Ex 5000" series) brings together some classic material in a sparkling package that features a cover with the Panchos toasting each other ...

A great Milton Banana LP from the mid 70s – filled with lots of short, tight bossa tracks, and lots of nice electric piano solos with a good 70's groove! Milton's tight and punchy on the drums, as usual, and the sound is a nice mix of bossa, samba, and a bit of funky jazz. Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album
A landmark album – even if it was the only session that Cannonball Adderley ever cut for Blue Note! The album was recorded at a time when Adderley was working with Miles Davis – and as such, the session features a group that includes Miles, blowing trumpet in a cool tone that's a ...
