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.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.
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.
70s charanga grooves from Orquesta Broadway – not nearly as savage as the title might imply, but a strong set nonetheless – cut in the best style of the Coco label! Harvey Averne produced, and he's got a nice way of making the group's traditional approach sound oddly fresh in the 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great work from his most classic years – titles that include "Si La Vieras", "Yo Soy El Son Cubano", "El Hijo De Dios", "Ya No Te Quiero", "Eres Mala Cabeza", "La Paella", and "Esa Va". LP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite albums ever from El Gran Combo – largely because it's a smoking Latin Soul set! The group were known for a more traditional groove on other records, but here they nicely jump on the younger bandwagon of the time – and step out with a crackling batch of boogaloo ... LP, Vinyl record album
This early 80s recording comes quite late in Machito's career, kind of a companion set to the Live At North Sea LP recorde the same year– and a great set featuring hard-hitting big band Latin jazz arrangements! Unlike the live set, the numbers here are tight and short, but feature the great ... LP, Vinyl record album
A set with "salsa" in the title, but also one of those New York 70s records that gets back to basics too – bringing in a bit of charanga elements, including flute and violin – the latter of which is played by Latin disco maestro Eddie Drennon! The group features lead vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
