then checkout as usual.
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 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,

Killer Latin soul from Mongo, and a great batch of original tracks, played by a groovy little combo that includes Bobby Capers on alto, Ray Maldonado on trumpet, and a young Hubert Laws on flute, who also did some of the arrangements! The sound is hard, tight, and jazzy – with the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cugie turns his classic Latin sound to a number of older compositions from films – like "Moon River", "High Noon", "La Dolce Vita", "Guns Of Navarone", "Al Di La", and "Flying Down To Rio". Not entirely a classic Latin session, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty darn nice album of Latin tracks – despite the obvious cheeseball theme of the record. Sure, it seems a bit of a cop-out for Tito to be doing a My Fair Lady album – but keep in mind that just about everyone was doing one of them at the time (after Shelly Manne had his big hit ... LP, Vinyl record album
A stripped-down rootsy session – similar to some of the sparer Afro-Cuban traditionalist sides that were coming out of New York in the early 80s. Ponce put the set together, and other players include Paquito D'Rivera, Jose Trapaga, Joe De Jesus, Nelson Rodriguez, and Bill Laswell. Most ... LP, Vinyl record album
Xavier Cugat turns his hit Latin sound to tunes from Mexico – working his way through medleys of traditional tunes, all given a late 50s zip, plus shorter numbers that work equally well in his choppy, percussive style. Titles include "Cielito Lindo", "Ay Jalisco No Te ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice Prestige 2-fer collecting two early sides Mongo cut for Fantasy in the late 50s. The first, released under the title Mongo, is a no-nonsense batch of Latin jazz tracks, arranged by himself and Francisco Aguabella, who's sort of the co-leader of the group on the set! Players include Emil ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful later work from Sonera Poncena – a record that softens the edges a bit from their brassier sessions of the 70s, but which also comes across with an even deeper sense of soul! The salsa here is really wonderfully balanced – emotive, but never too much so – and set amidst ... LP, Vinyl record album
