(Orange label stereo pressing. Cover has a split top seam and some surface wear.)
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.

A bold statement from Pacheco – and an album recorded to commemorate an early tour in Africa! The music on the set has a stark percussive quality – similar to Pacheco's other Fania albums of the time, but done with perhaps a bit more of an edge, especially on the slower tracks. Vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album
A rare Mexican album from Perez Prado – nicely cooking, with a really sharp edge, and plenty of the saxes promised in the title! Includes "Mambo a la Kenton", "Mambo en Sax", and "Mambo No. 8". LP, Vinyl record album
A great little 80s album by Manny Oquendo's Libre group – recorded after their classic Salsoul LPs, but every bit as great! The group are in incredible form – very tight, with loads of jazzy touches, and an approach to the groove that won't quit. Players include Andy Gonzalez, Jerry ... LP, Vinyl record album
