Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor 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.
More recent than Machito's classic recordings, but done with a tight adherence to jazz that really makes the album sparkle! In a way, this set's much more of a no-nonsense Latin jazz affair than many of Machito's sides from the late 50s, 1960s, or 70s – as he's got kind of a back to basics ... LP, Vinyl record album
Very cool album that has Tito leaving his more traditional Afro Cuban groove for a more Brazilian one. Tito and band do some nicely groovy versions of bossa standards and more obscure material – including "Otra Vez", "Doralice", "O Pato", "Un Abraco No ... LP, Vinyl record album
An early 70s classic from vocalist Chivirco Davila – a set that's nicely balanced between two generations of Latin music! At one level, the arrangements by Jorge Millet often have the salsa groove you'd expect for the era – but at another level, Chivirco's own presentation of the songs ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic material from Cortijo's legendary combo with Ismael Rivera on vocals – one of the first records to really showcase the great sounds coming from the Puerto Rican scene in the early 60s! Rhythms are plenty lively – as Cortijo's group has the same sharp focus as the early Joe Cuba ... LP, Vinyl record album
Perfect proof that the New York Latin Soul sound of the 60s had moved to LA during the 70s! El Chicano are a wonderful blend of styles – from sweet harmony soul, to breezy West Coast Latin, to 70s electric funk, and a whole lot more. This early album's a wonderful slice of east side soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
A later set from this group who famously recorded for Salsoul during their Latin years – with tracks that include "Saoco", "Let The Story End", "Que Tal", "No Abandones Tus Hijos", "Panama", and "Musica De Antano". LP, Vinyl record album
Maybe not as all-out psychedelic as you'd expect from the title and cover – but nonetheless, a really memorable late 60s album from El Gran Combo! The set's got the group hitting some of their Latin Soul modes at times – a clear direction for their psychedelic impulses – changing ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the few standout 70s sessions by Ornette Coleman – a wonderfully rhythmic record that shows Ornette's expanding musical vision at the time! Most of the record is dominated by the guitar-heavy "Theme From A Symphony" – a very harmelodic number that takes up all of side ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swedish recording that pairs the great tenor player with a tight local group, and has them laying down a number of standard jazz tracks like "Lester Leaps In", "Now's The Time", and "Body & Soul" in nice long relaxed versions. Budd also reprises his older "Ya ... LP, Vinyl record album
