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.

A stone 60s smoker from Mongo Santmaria – and a great little set that really lives up to its title! The "soul" reference points to the record's host of 60s soul tunes, which are given a hip Latin spin by Mongo – working here with killer boogaloo arrangements from the great ...

A strange little record – a bit different than usual from percussionist Sabu Martinez, and with a slight exotica feel too! There's a groove that's still mostly Latin – but, like most of Sabu's wonderful music, things go way past the obvious – as percussion takes hold, and Sabu ... LP, Vinyl record album
Xavier Cugat takes on the tango mode, and handles it with his great flair for the dramatic – on titles that include "Charisse", "Orchids In The Moonlight", "Adios Muchachos", and "La Cumparsita". LP, Vinyl record album
