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.
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.
A stone classic from pianist Eddie Cano – recorded at the time he was heading the house combo at PJs, one of LA's hippest clubs of the 60s! The album's got Eddie grooving in a looser, freer, and more stripped-down style than on his 50s sessions – hitting a nice mix of Latin, jazz, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
An incredible early album from Eddie Cano – one that features his Latin tinged piano amidst some incredibly sharp orchestrations, all cooking up a set of tight and rhythmic readings of Ellington standards! The feel isn't as Latin as some of Eddie's other albums, but there's still some Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album
What a great combination – the Latin piano of Eddie Cano and the magical compositions of Henry Mancini! Eddie's working here with a small combo that includes bass, drums, and conga – and he starts out slow and moody with Mancini's music, then starts kicking it up with that heavy-groovin ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty darn nice record – despite what you might think! Sure, the tunes are all pulled from the soundtrack to Sound Of Music – but Eddie Cano Latinizes each and every one of them, using his hard piano style and light percussion to turn them into jaunty groovers with a jazzy finish ... LP, Vinyl record album
Excellent stuff! Although Eddie Cano cut a lot of pop-Latin piano records, this hard jazzy groover is a firey bunch of instrumentals that stands as one of his best records ever! The set's got a tight west coast group that includes a tight trumpet frontline, plus timbales, bass, and congas – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mucho cha cha here – the reigning rhythm on the New York Latin scene at the end of the 50s – played by Tito Puente and group with some nicely jazzy styles! The combo features some excellent horn work alongside the percussion – both sax and trumpet sections, plus some leaner flute ... LP, Vinyl record album
Noro Morales' most ambitious recording, and a beautiful reading of Ernesto Lecuona's extended Afro Cuban Suite! The suite spans both sides of the album, and is done here in a beautiful orchestral intervweaving of Latin themes, with arrangements by George Siravo, and piano by Noro, who also leads ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Tito Puente's finest albums for RCA, with a tight hard bunch of cuts that have a Cuban big band sound, and a lot more drive to them than some of Tito's other work for the label. Ray Bryant wrote the great track "Cuban Fantasy", and Tito contributed most of the other tunes on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
