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 very nice record from the early 60s that marked Tito's first for the Tico label – and which was a hot set of pachanga grooves with a tight small combo feel, in a manner that really blew away his RCA work! Tracks include "Un Telegrama", "A Bailar Pachanga", "La ... LP, Vinyl record album
An overstuffed album that features 15 of Tito's Latin groovers for United Artists – not necessarily "hits" in the chart-bound way, but all of them solid senders for the Latin audience of the early 60s. Titles include "Penasa En Mi", "Cara De Payso", "Machaca ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love! The album's a crossover gem that has Ray working with Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder of The Crusaders – a trio who produced the record, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really killer set from Joe Quijano – one of the most overlooked leaders of the early 60s, and a tremendous talent on these early Columbia albums! The album's got a raw, highly percussive groove – one that goes way past the simple pachanga groove of the time, and which bristles with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hot on the heels of the highly acclaimed Latinaires 12" series on Ubiquity, this cool compilation compiles the series' efforts to mix classic Latin grooves with modern electronica production – into a dancefloor blend that's been quite popular with DGA customers these days!

A wonderful space disco classic from the years before house music – and a record that's gone on to have a huge influence on generations of dancefloors over the years!

One of Ramsey's excellent late 60s funky piano records for Cadet – featuring his second trio with Cleveland Eaton on bass and Morris Jennings on drums, and a sound that's nicely expanded from the mid 60s hit years. Charles Stepney plays a bit of organ on the album, and Henry Gibson gives the ... LP, Vinyl record album
