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.
Very heavy duty Afro-Cuban material, with a focus on carnaval grooves – played by 2 different groups: Carlos Barbeira's Banda Kubavana, and Alberto Zayas Grupo Afro-Cubano. We like the Grupo Afro-Cubano the best, as they have a nice raw percussion sound, and a very hard groove with ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ray's taking it back to the beginning on this one – getting a bit more spare and percussive, showing off a strong understanding of the history of the roots of the Afro-Cuban sound. Adalberto Santiago's on vocals on the album – and tracks include "Oye La Noticia", "Hipocre ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice collection – not the over-collected 50s hits of Perez Prado, but more obscure later work – most likely only issued in Mexico. Titles include "La Tomica", "Mambo Latino", "Caballo Negro", "Jumbo Jumbo", "Alekum Salem", and "Br ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bobo Motion is groovy motion – heard here on one of Willie's best albums for Verve from the late 60s – a really unique blend of jazz, Latin, and soul-based rhythms! The set's even tighter than some of Willie's other Verve records – and like the classic Uno Dos Tres, it's got some ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of a number of successful pairings of vocalist Celia Cruz with another act – in this case the mighty La Sonora Matancera, who support Celia's vocals with a really full and focused sound! Titles include "Quinto Mayor", "Camina Para Volver", "Herencia Africana" ... LP, Vinyl record album
