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.
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.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Distinct and different work from the Lebron Brothers – a great 70s salsa set, but one with some warmly soulful touches too! The bulk of the set is in their already-great style of the time – tight salsa, but with a deep sound that hints back at their Latin Soul roots. And then the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Good fishing from this cool salsa combo – led by bassist Roberto Rivera, with vocals from Jaime Rivera and Anthony Martinez, and titles that include "derroche", "Sinceridad", "Dios Mio que Estupido Fui", and "Tu Beso Tiene Otro Sabor". LP, Vinyl record album
A nice one by Joe Loco – one of his strongest of the 60s, and a tight batch of Latin soul tracks that has a lot more fire than some of his other records! The group's bigger too – with a crackling sound that's got all the youthful integrity you might expect from a title like Puerto Rico ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ice T's third album, and a set that still has all the nicely biting style of his early best! The approach here is great – as political as the cover implies, but with a nice sense of wit, too – that quality that already made Ice stand so far apart from others who were getting mired down ... LP, Vinyl record album
The monumental debut of BT Express – and an excellent funk album that often gets overlooked by fans of the music because of the band's bigger fame as a disco group! This first record has the combo grooving hard and instrumentally – in the mode of a tight blacksploitation soundtrack, ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the great albums that Red Rodney recorded on his comeback in the late 50's, and one that features the great Philadelphia tenor player Billy Root. Root's playing is one of the highlights of this LP, and the tracks include "5709", "Red Hot and Blue", "Whirlwind", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Paid In Full, indeed! Eric B & Rakim's seminal debut still pays off in so many ways, and it was such a vital link between the party rockin' style of the old school and the terse, hard-hitting beats and rhymes of the nascent school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise it's due. ...
