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.
(Cover has some ringwear, splitting in the bottom seam, and a small stain on back.)
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.
Killer material, and one of Willie's best-ever albums for Verve! The album's filled with groovy numbers that hit the good mix of soul and Latin that was coming out of the New York scene at the time – and Willie delivers all of it with a tight jazzy sound that works great with the titles. ...

We don't know much about Dave Bacal, but we do know that this is a nice album of Latiny groovers, played by Dave on the Hammond, with backing that has a good percussive sound. The style's a mix of Latin and Exotica, and since the record was recorded in the Hollywood scene of the 50s, you can ... LP, Vinyl record album
A rare cross-cultural session from 1979 – one in which Columbia Records was allowed to record live performances involving a number of American jazz musicians playing alongside Cuban groups like Irakere and The Cuban Percussion Ensemble! The blend of modes here is really great – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tito Rodriguez returns to the Palladium – in a smoking set that's got all the great jazzy touches of his first volume at the famous club, but a bit more of a charanga groove overall! The core combo elements that make Tito great are firmly in place – that strong sense of rhythm and ... LP, Vinyl record album
80s work from Tito – but very nicely grooving, with a small combo that has a nice jazzy finish, and lots of strong west coast Latin work from the likes of players like Francisco Aguabella, Jorge Dalto, Jose Madera, and Johnny Rodriguez. The set was recorded live in SF – and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Cannonball Adderley's late funky sessions for Fantasy – and a record that still features some mighty heavy production from David Axelrod! The album's got that core groove that Axe and Cannon first crafted together at Capitol in the 60s – but the sound here has some definite 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best CTI albums from the early 70s – and one of Stanley Turrentine's funkiest records as well! The album's got a sharper edge than most other Turrentine albums of the time – a quality that goes beyond Stan's already soulful approach to the tenor, and which brings in some ...
