Caliente = Hot – Puerto Rican And Cuban Musical Expression In New York
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.

The great Latin big band arrangements of Chico O'Farrill meet the groovy production of late-60's Verve – and the result is an excellent album of groovy instrumentals that just won't quit!

One of our favorite Cameo albums of all time – a record that still has the group sounding plenty funky, but also maybe hitting a more sophisticated one – one that comes through perfectly on the message-oriented title track! There's a sense of compression going on here – ... LP, Vinyl record album
