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.
A surprisingly hard to find record by this popular Latin pair – and one of their sharpest 70s sets, too! Titles include "Mi Amigo Juan", "Richie Ray 1975", "Juan Sebastian Fuga", "Mi Mayoral", and "Jesus En El Jardin". LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best-selling albums ever from the team of Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz – and a key set that marked a sharp dedication to spirituality in their music!

Hard grooving salsa tracks, with a bit of Latin Soul thrown in for good measure! The album includes the sublime "part 2" version of "Trumpetman", one of Ray's best groovers from the late 60s, and an excellent party Latin tune – plus the tracks "Wakamba", "Ba ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wonderfully jazzy work from Tito Rodriguez – and further proof that his live albums are often some of the best he ever recorded! The set's got an earthy feel that's quite different than some of Tito's studio albums – still that tight groove he brought to Latin music at the end of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very cool album that has Tito leaving his more traditional Afro Cuban groove for a more Brazilian one. Tito and band do some nicely groovy versions of bossa standards and more obscure material – including "Otra Vez", "Doralice", "O Pato", "Un Abraco No ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ostensibly another West Side Story pop ripoff album, this is actually a strong album of Latin tracks that uses the popularity of the musical to draw a parallel with the "west side" grooves of the New York Latin scene. The album includes a small amount of covers from the musical, but also ... LP, Vinyl record album
A stunner of a record from the Fania All Stars – a tremendous attempt to move into a 70s soul vein, complete with Satin Soul arrangements from Gene and Billy Page!
