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.
(Yellow label pressing with red diamond logo. Cover has some light stains and seam splits.)
Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
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.
One of the best tenor sax players in Latin music performs a mellow set of instrumental ballads with a moody late night feel. Jose "Chombo" Silva's got a great tone – almost the Coleman Hawkins of the Latin tenor – and the moody feel of this one has him working in a small ... LP, Vinyl record album
An overstuffed album that features 15 of Tito's Latin groovers for United Artists – not necessarily "hits" in the chart-bound way, but all of them solid senders for the Latin audience of the early 60s. Titles include "Penasa En Mi", "Cara De Payso", "Machaca ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love! The album's a crossover gem that has Ray working with Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder of The Crusaders – a trio who produced the record, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really killer set from Joe Quijano – one of the most overlooked leaders of the early 60s, and a tremendous talent on these early Columbia albums! The album's got a raw, highly percussive groove – one that goes way past the simple pachanga groove of the time, and which bristles with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hot on the heels of the highly acclaimed Latinaires 12" series on Ubiquity, this cool compilation compiles the series' efforts to mix classic Latin grooves with modern electronica production – into a dancefloor blend that's been quite popular with DGA customers these days!

Great stuff by Mongo – originally issued under another name during the early 60s, but presented here with a new cover in this late 60s reissue. The tracks are all hard, short, and jazzy – with that solid groove that Mongo brought to Latin music during the 60s. Players include Hubert ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rudy Ray Moore's second album, and almost hipper than the first – thanks to some key musical backings from The Fillmore St Soul Rebellion! The vibe here is as rough and raw as you'd expect – a no-holds-barred version of party records, with Rudy using plenty of language hardly heard ... LP, Vinyl record album
