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 split seams held with clear tape, some aging, and a name in pen.)
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.

A rare Mexican album from Perez Prado – nicely cooking, with a really sharp edge, and plenty of the saxes promised in the title! Includes "Mambo a la Kenton", "Mambo en Sax", and "Mambo No. 8". LP, Vinyl record album
A great little 80s album by Manny Oquendo's Libre group – recorded after their classic Salsoul LPs, but every bit as great! The group are in incredible form – very tight, with loads of jazzy touches, and an approach to the groove that won't quit. Players include Andy Gonzalez, Jerry ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warm and tender work from the mighty Tyrone Davis – really singing here at the height of his early powers, in that wonderful blend of the rough and smooth that made him so unique! Davis has a gritty touch in his singing style, but the backings have that perfect Brunswick Chicago soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
A massive amount of fast funk groovers from the mighty Hamilton Bohannon – just the kind of skittish, upbeat, and totally amazing tracks that have made him a legend for years! The sound is really stripped down – usually just bass, drums, and guitar – wrapped together in this ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jaki Byard proves that he's a pianist steeped in rich tradition – capable of reaching back to shake hands with the style of traditionalist Earl Hines, and clever enough to insert a dash of his own modernism into Hines' own style. Most tracks are done as piano-only duets – but a few on ... LP, Vinyl record album
