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.
Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have
some signs of use (although not major ones).
May have slight surface noise when played.

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 ...

An incredible record by Lennie Tristano – one that features him playing solo piano, but in a way that's so inventive, so creative, so pyrotechnic, that Atlantic Records had to include text on the back cover saying "No use is made of multi-tracking, over-dubbing, or tape-speeding" ...

A brilliant album that proves that even at the height of his success, Lee Morgan was one of the freest thinkers on Blue Note – always coming up with fresh ideas that continued to grow his talents!

A brilliant title for this brilliant album from Thelonious Monk – a set that really has him coming back strongly in the second half of the 50s – with a new talent for arrangements that really goes past his previous work!
