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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

One of Joe Loco's most haunting albums, and a moody mix of spare Latin percussion with haunting off-kilter piano solos, in a swirling blend of tracks that form Joe's Mambo Fantasy.

A sweet little session from the Bay Area scene – a set that features English and Spanish language vocals from guitarist Memo – plus backing in a mix of funky jazz and clubby soul! The album's a unique fusion of modes – maybe like some of the Spanish disco rumba material of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
The cover lists Sabu – but we've been told that it's not Sabu Martinez, but someone named Subri Moulin, with the name misprinted from the original RKO recording. Still sounds like some of Sabu's exotica albums, though, with lots of heavy percussion, in a loud jungle drumming kind of frenzy. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sublime work from Frankie Beverly and Maze – smooth, mellow, and perfectly put together, with a level of care and class that you'd be hard pressed to find in many of the group's contemporaries!
