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.

Killer Latin soul from Mongo, and a great batch of original tracks, played by a groovy little combo that includes Bobby Capers on alto, Ray Maldonado on trumpet, and a young Hubert Laws on flute, who also did some of the arrangements! The sound is hard, tight, and jazzy – with the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Xavier Cugat takes on the tango mode, and handles it with his great flair for the dramatic – on titles that include "Charisse", "Orchids In The Moonlight", "Adios Muchachos", and "La Cumparsita". LP, Vinyl record album
Hard early work by Joe Loco – featuring the piano fo the mad genius set in spare striking percussion arrangements with some occasional extra horn playing.

Joe Quijano was one of the greatest all-around Latin bandleaders of the early 60s – and this rare session for Columbia shows him capably moving through a wide range of material, from mambo, to bossa, to cha cha cha! The bossa material is especially interesting – in that it's got more ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the last albums from the team of Johnny Pacheco and Pete El Conde Rodriguez – and one of the best, too! The set's got an all-solid feel all the way through – a well-crafted approach to the tunes that's simple, and almost effortless – but which comes from Pacheco's years of ... LP, Vinyl record album

A great little groover from the La Playa Sextet – with a sharp approach on the instrumentation that mixes guitar, bass, and trumpet underneath the vocals. The album's recorded after their cha cha years, with a driving groove that's right out of the pre-Latin Soul era – and tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little record by Tito! Recorded live in Puerto Rico, with a very hard sound, and some great short groovers that stand among the best of his early 60s output. Titles include "Ay Que Bueno", "Pa Borinquen", "El Paso", "Veba Baja", and "Babarabatir ... LP, Vinyl record album
Firey 50's mambo tracks by Tito – nicely jazzy, and with hard heavy percussion driving the whole thing along. This one's super-rare on vinyl, and it's one of the many great lost Tito albums currently being reissued. Titles include "Mambo Suavecito", "Esto Es Coco", " ... LP, Vinyl record album
