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.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging.)
Very Good + (plus)
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.
One of Cugie's more popular albums – and a record that has him re-recording older hits for the hi-fi generation. There's not that much hi and fi on the record, as the groove's pretty much in the older style – but the newer recordings were done in a stereo setting, which makes for a bit ...

Cugie turns his classic Latin sound to a number of older compositions from films – like "Moon River", "High Noon", "La Dolce Vita", "Guns Of Navarone", "Al Di La", and "Flying Down To Rio". Not entirely a classic Latin session, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Xavier Cugat turns his hit Latin sound to tunes from Mexico – working his way through medleys of traditional tunes, all given a late 50s zip, plus shorter numbers that work equally well in his choppy, percussive style. Titles include "Cielito Lindo", "Ay Jalisco No Te ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cugat and cocktails – what could be better? The set's a bit later than Xavier Cugat's classic vintage – but in a really nice way, one that has him opening up with some groovy 60s rhythms! The style is still heavily Latin, but there's also some nice influences from bossa nova and some ... LP, Vinyl record album
A set recorded by RCA in 1958 – featuring a few new numbers, plus a number of classics, redone by Cugie in a nice jazzy style that we like better than his earlier work! Sid Ramin did a few arrangements for the record – and titles include "Mambo No 5", "Baia", "G ... LP, Vinyl record album
A mellow album of Latin tunes, offered as sort of a "break" from dancing – and done very much in the easy style of Luis Arcaraz's other 50s RCA recordings! The works were mostly composed by Arcaraz and Gabriel Ruiz – and titles include "Mar", "Noche", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Well, since we're partial to Eddie's boogaloo material, we wouldn't exactly say that this was the best of Eddie's work – but it is a great batch of his RCA sides, with a spare, no-nonsense piano and percussion style that Eddie applies to a nice mix of pop and standards. Titles include "L ... LP, Vinyl record album
