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.
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.

It's easy to cha cha when Tito Puente's in the house – especially when he's working in his near-perfect RCA mode of the late 50s! The tunes are nothing fancy, but the execution is sublime – tight Latin rhythms at the bottom, done in a way that's never too bombastic – topped with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Four long tracks with a much more traditional Latin vibe than you'd guess from the image on the cover – served up with vocals from David George and Chico Rivera, flute from Luis Samo and Freddy Miranda, violin from John Martin Miranda, and plenty of percussion too – on titles that ...
