Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Mongo Santamaria

Sabroso
Fantasy, Early 60s. Very Good-
Heavy charanga work from Mongo Santamaria – a really early west coast take on the genre, and a record that features a slightly bigger group than usual for Mongo! Early partner Willie Bobo is in the combo on Timbales – and other players include Pupi Legarreta and Jose Chombo Silva on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
Although this one was issued as part of the cheesy Arthur Murray dance series on Capitol, it's actually got a great set of rhumba tracks played by Chuy Reys and his orchestra. The overall sound is nothing fancy, but the instrumentation is quite tight, and the whole album's a strong no-nonsense ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Playa Sextet

Bailando El Boogaloo
Musicor, 1967. Fair
Although not a boogaloo album all the way through, this is really one of the group's strongest efforts – and a record that does include some really fantastic Latin soul numbers! Arrangements are by Louie Ramirez and Ray Santos, both of whom bring a really darkly grooving sound to the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca, 1978. Very Good
Cool picture disc of the Motor Booty album, with a photo of George Clinton water skiing on two dolphins on one side, and a sketch of him fighting a bird on the other. Housed in a sleeve that lists the tracks on the album, but which doesn't have the same pop-up landscape as the non-pic disc version. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Criss

Saturday Morning
Xanadu, 1975. Very Good+
A beautiful album from the wonderful reedman Sonny Criss – one of the first albums in his brief stretch of return to recording in the late 70s – and quite possibly the best! Criss has a sound that's completely amazing, right from the start – every bit as sharp toned as in his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Kind Of Blue
Columbia, 1959. Very Good-
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, ... LP, Vinyl record album
