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.

Stellar Latin grooves! This album is one of Ray's best from the early 60s, and it's an incredible batch of edgey tracks that far outshines most of his other work from the time! For the record, Ray took the standard Charanga format, and updated it by adding sweet jazzy touches, pushing the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nice jazzy Latin groovers from Marco – played on hard heavy piano, with lots of tight spare percussion in the background! The tracks push past the usual Cha Cha sort of groove – and seem to encompass a number of complicated themes and styles, agumented by some extra exotic percussion. ... LP, Vinyl record album
