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.
Rare later work from Machito – on the label that would soon become Salsoul Records! Titles include "Masacote", "Como Quieras", "Rumbantela", "Tibiri Tabara", "Yo Tengo Un Mate", and "Buena Noche Che Che". LP, Vinyl record album
A tight little Machito album from the 60s – produced by Leroy Holmes, and done with a bit more punch than some of his other records from the time! The format's similar to other Machito sessions – in that some tracks have Machtio singing with a larger backing group, and others focus on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fairly standard work from Machito, with a number of vocal cuts that feature either Machito or Graciela – but a record that really shines in the jazzy moments! These cuts include a version of "Pent-Up House", with a sax solo by Aaron Sachs, a reading of "Tenderly" with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A real corker from Machito – a set that's got a lot more bite and earthy fire than some of his other albums of the 50s – as you might be able to guess from the cover and the title! The record definitely lives up to the Afro-Cuban promise on the front – thanks to very hip ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love! The album's a crossover gem that has Ray working with Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder of The Crusaders – a trio who produced the record, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A landmark album, and the first-ever record on the young Alegre label – a sure-fire hit that put both the company and Pacheco firmly on the map! The record's a genre-setting batch of hard early charanga grooves filled with great flute work from a young Johnny Pacheco – recording here ... LP, Vinyl record album
The 9th album that Roena cut with his Apollo Sound combo – and they're still grooving hard! The set's got a strong 70s salsa feel, with a three trumpet lineup, bongos from Roena, and some nice tenor and flute work by Miguel Rodriguez. Titles include "Marejada Feliz", "Nadie ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of those great hard-hitting Latin albums on Brunswick from the 60s! Titles include "Las Claves", "Yemaya", "Fregao", "Por Que", "Campina Cubana", "Nina", "La Pachanga", and "El Sopon". LP, Vinyl record album
4th volume in this great series of classic Latin descargas, featuring some of the greatest players of the sixties running through crack material that gives them all a chance to showcase their talents.

Great early work from Joe Cuba! Sure, the tracks were recorded before Joe's legendary Latin Soul years – but the vibe is nice and fresh, and the tight stripped-down approach shows how much Joe was ready to revitalize Latin music in the 60s. The percussion's nice and strong, and many cuts ... LP, Vinyl record album
