Roberto Roena Y Su Apollo Sound 9

LP (Item 50004) International, 1977 — Condition: Very Good
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 Sabe", "Hay Que Saber Comenzar", "Los Demas", and "La Distancia".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Multicolor label stereo pressing. Cover has ringwear, heavy edge wear, and bent corners.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • 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.
