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.
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.
Darn nice record by Tito – and one with a soulful 60s feel, hinted at by the "en Harlem" in the title. The record's not really a Latin soul album, but it's got certain groovy 60s elements that are done very very nicely. Includes great Latin versions of "Downtown" and ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent set from Tito – very funky, unlike most of his other work from the time! The record has a great electric vibe to it – thanks to a hip bass player in the group, to Charlie Palmieri, who plays organ and electric piano on the record, and to Tito himself, who's never sounded ... LP, Vinyl record album
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great 60s work from Tito! The material here shows Tito at his best, past his big band years, and hitting the tighter harder sound that made this period so great. El Rey's totally at home with the group, and tracks include "Batacumba", "Malanga Con Yuca", "Donde Vas", ... LP, Vinyl record album
An excellent little set from Tito – recorded in the late 50s for Tico, with a groove that's harder than much of his 60s work for United Artists! The lineup includes some nice jazzy vibes work on a few tracks – and the album includes the great percussive track "Suena Tu Bongo (Beat ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Tito's classic 50's recordings for Tico, all of which have a much rawer sound than his work for RCA from the same time. The tracks on here represent some Tito's best work in the Cha Cha Cha format – played with a hard sound and a good percussive drive aimed towards a very appreciative ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tight groovy cha cha tracks by Tito, recorded with more edge than his similar stuff for RCA, and presented here in a reissue of a record that's darn rare in the original (we've never seen a copy!) Tito's joined by vocalist Pepe Luis, and the set list includes nice ones like "Cha Cha ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flautist Lou Perez leads his band through the "Our Heritage" suite, plus a bunch of montunos and son tracks with a fairly traditional feel. The band includes Lou's flute, plus violins, Spanish guitar, cello, and piano. LP, Vinyl record album
Pete in a very Latin Beat – playing vibes with heavy percussion, in a style that has equal parts jazz and equal parts Latin, and which moves past the sleepier sound of some of his earlier, mellower records. Cha cha is the basic groove of the tunes, but the execution and the heavier style of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great work from his most classic years – titles that include "Si La Vieras", "Yo Soy El Son Cubano", "El Hijo De Dios", "Ya No Te Quiero", "Eres Mala Cabeza", "La Paella", and "Esa Va". LP, Vinyl record album
