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.
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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Nice album of some of the fantastic jamming by this great band of some of the best musicians who ever recorded for Alegre Records.

Great stuff by Mongo – originally issued under another name during the early 60s, but presented here with a new cover in this late 60s reissue. The tracks are all hard, short, and jazzy – with that solid groove that Mongo brought to Latin music during the 60s. Players include Hubert ... LP, Vinyl record album

By the mid 70s, the New York Latin scene was boomin' so large it could easily fill venues like Yankee Stadium – as you'll hear on this excellent live set from the Fania All-Stars, a monster record that easily ranks with the best live Latin sides of the time – like Eddie Palmieri at Sing ...

Nice album of classic Latin tracks, and one that offers a mix of material from Charlie Palmieri, Emilio Reyes, and La Playa Sextet. Despite the obvious thrown together nature of the release, the material's all quite strong, and lots of hit has a very hard, very percussive sound. Charlie and his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Funky mid 70s Herbie Hancock – one his funkiest albums of the era! Herbie plays a host of cool keyboards – like Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – and he's joined by a group that includes just about all of the Headhunters – including Paul Jackson on bass and Mike Clarke on ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little record made by this obscure modernist group! The quartet seems to begin with an MJQ inspired kind of groove – but they're much more soulful than that, and the tracks have a nice jagged sound that well earns them their "contemporary" tag. The lineup is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Seminal late 80s righteous hip hop from KRS and Boogie Down Productions! By All Means Necessary shows remarkable change in lyrical style from Criminal Minded, delivering a eavy dose of knowledge at a time when so much hip hop was all about rocking the party.
