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.
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.

Sonny's probably better known for his later work as an arranger, but here he's the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Excellent stuff from Eddie Benitez and his jazzy Latin soul combo of the 70s! The band had a very unique blend of Latin fusion, jazzy musicianship, and soulful vocals – and in a way, they were continuing experiments begun in the early days of the Nu Yorica era, but which had been cast aside ...

There's been more than a few excellent Latin sets based upon the work of Irving Berlin – but this album may well be the finest! Machito's in top top form here, working in that late 50s heavy-jazz mode that we treasure from some of his best Tico/Roulette albums – and the all-instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album
By the end of the 50s, Machito was a king of the Latin scene – and had an ability to both groove hard, and lay down sophisticated arrangements that were a lot stronger than those of other throwaway cha cha cha groups. This album's one of his best from the era – and it includes lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album
