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.
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.
Classic Joe Loco material for Tico from the 50s – hard and heavy piano work, leaping around with almost as much inherent rhythm as the percussion that accompanies it! Loco's style gets a bit, well, "loco" at times – but never too much so – and titles include "Happy ... LP, Vinyl record album
A solid groover from Joe Loco – cut in a pachanga style, as you'd guess from the title – but like all of his work at the time, the kind of a session that's really driven by his tight work on piano, no matter what the rhythm! Joe's heavy hand on the keys makes any sort of a record a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great set of Latin grooves – and despite the "calypso" in the title, this is pretty much a straight Latin album from Joe Loco, and it ranks as one of his best from the 50s. The grooves are nice and straight ahead, with searing percussion, and nice heavy piano from Joe. Who ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very nice album of tight hot Latin instrumentals, played by Joe Loco with his tremendous choppy approach to the piano! The title and notes seem to imply that there's a "rockin" sound to this one, but that's only because Joe wails so much, Mercury was trying to align the record with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Joe's firey Latin piano turns towards a number of tracks that are best known as standards, but which are given a nice Latiny tinge here in this classic Tico session. Titles include "Lover", "Cuban Nightingale", "Body & Soul", "September In the Rain", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Years before Eddie Palmieri started adding some very "out" touches to his solos during the 70's, Joe Loco was transforming Latin jazz piano with a style that was a bit tighter, but no less "out". The tracks on this record are a perfect example of his well-earned "Loco" ... LP, Vinyl record album
The second Columbia album for this amazing Cuban combo – and a record that really helped get the talents of Irakere a lot of overdue exposure here in the US! The record's surprisingly tight – especially for a major label effort of the time – really committed to the deepest sides ... LP, Vinyl record album
Killer Latin grooves from the mid 70s – a sweet Columbia session from percussionist Jose Areas that easily rivals some of the better-known Chicano grooves from the west coast! There's a nice mix of guitar and keyboards bubbling through the group's Latin lineup – which includes lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice stuff from Willie – maybe not as hard and funky as his early 70s work, but very nice in kind of a Latin Club mode, thanks to some great production by Wayne Henderson! Includes his classic take on "Always There" – which is a great dancefloor jazz jammer – plus ... LP, Vinyl record album
