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.
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

This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
A nice collection – not the over-collected 50s hits of Perez Prado, but more obscure later work – most likely only issued in Mexico. Titles include "La Tomica", "Mambo Latino", "Caballo Negro", "Jumbo Jumbo", "Alekum Salem", and "Br ... LP, Vinyl record album
Not the all-out percussion affair you might guess from the title – but still a plenty great little album of late 50s Latin from Havana – done with a sweetly syncopated sound on all the tunes! Instrumentation is heavy on flute, violin, and piano – alongside the percussion promised ... LP, Vinyl record album
Perez was always willing to alter his groove to fit the times and the mood – and this set is one of his first forays into the groovier sound that would dominate most of his 60s work for other labels. The core sound is still in that "ugh!" mode of earlier RCA sides, but there's also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Nice work by this Mexican saxophonist – instrumentals set to some nicely crackling rhythms, and some vocals too. Titles include "Guapacha De La Universidad", "El Que Sabe Sabe", "El Carinoso", "Me Extrana", and "Guapacha Del Politecnico". LP, Vinyl record album
Ray's taking it back to the beginning on this one – getting a bit more spare and percussive, showing off a strong understanding of the history of the roots of the Afro-Cuban sound. Adalberto Santiago's on vocals on the album – and tracks include "Oye La Noticia", "Hipocre ... LP, Vinyl record album
