then checkout as usual.
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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Ray's last album for Fania, but it's by no means a contract-filler – as Barretto keeps the group in tight formation as they make their way through a trumpet-heavy batch of tunes that only uses a bit of electric instrumentation from time to time. Vocals are by Carlos Torres, and most of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Good salsa session from the 70's, with the long jammer "Indestructible" (eleven minutes long!), plus "Hipocresia Y Falsedad", "Alma Con Alma", and "Ay No". Lots of nice grooves, and a very tight band that includes a firey twin-sax frontline, plus some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
The mighty Willie Bobo's feelin plenty good here – so much so, he even sings a bit in addition to his work on percussion! Willie's got a nice raw vocal approach – one that works great for the Latin soul vibe of the rhythms – and titles include the groovers "Feelin' So ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the excellent overlooked Latin albums recorded by Atlantic during the 60's – most of which were never issued again. Rene Bloch leads a nice little orchestra through a lively set of mambos and Latin jazz tracks, with a set that's mostly instrumental, and which has a different sound, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little record – and a prime example of the strong Jewish/Latin crossover that was going on in the late 50s and early 60s. The record features the kind of crack cha cha sound that was bringing couples into the Palladium from Long Island, but it's also touched with occasional yiddish ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best New York recordings made by Arsenio Rodriguez! The record has a strong rootsy feel, which lest Arsenio's hard raw sound come out nice and clear – and the overall approach is a good mix of traditional sounds and more modern production, which is a nice thing if you've ever been ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fairly standard work from Machito, with a number of vocal cuts that feature either Machito or Graciela – but a record that really shines in the jazzy moments! These cuts include a version of "Pent-Up House", with a sax solo by Aaron Sachs, a reading of "Tenderly" with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of a few rare 60s albums from pianist Dick Morgan – a player from the Washington DC scene who didn't make it onto record that much back in the day! Joe Benjamin plays bass and Ben Riley plays drums, and the set includes a good mix of Morgan originals like "Bash!" and "Settl ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clifford Brown only recorded a handful of sides for Blue Note – but all of the best ones are included in this excellent album – a full length set that culls together Brown's material from the 10" years, issued as a memorial to his early death in 1956! Side one features Brown with ... LP, Vinyl record album
The one and only album by Exit 9 – an obscure funk combo who recorded this rare set for Brunswick in 1975! The group is extremely tight instrumentally – working at a very fast funky clip that's kind of similar to work by Bohannon or Sound Experience – both of whom shared Exit 9's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Groovin' set of tracks that has the lady organist in two settings – one with her trio with Jimmy Cobb on drums, the other with a hard swingin' big band led by Oliver Nelson. She's great with Nelson's band, and swings in the same hard way that Jimmy Smith does in the same setting. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
