ORQUESTA EXPOSE 1~RARE ORIG 1973 4 POINTS LP~MELENDEZ~GUAGUANCO~SALSA~STRONG VG+
Condition: Strong VG+
Cover Condition: VG+
Label: 4 POINTS
Reference Number : FP 1244
SUPER RARE ORIGINAL 1973 GUAGUANCO / SALSA LP from Orquesta Expose on 4 Points. ORIGINAL 1st press!
Vinyl has some light surface marks holding grade down, but plays strong throughout with only a couple light pops on "Flor de Arrabal." Wonderful music end to end.
Cover has ringwear, edgewear, cornerwear.
Labels show very light wear.
NOTE: It's been a VERY long time since this LP appeared on auction. Starting price is reflective of RARITY. Listing it on auction just this once.
NOTE 2: INSURANCE is required on this record. YOU MUST WAIT for my invoice. International buyers, this means shipping via PRIORITY MAIL, which is much more expensive.
AGAIN, PLEASE WAIT FOR MY INVOICE--not the generic ebay invoice.
I will NOT ship this without insurance and if need be, will cancel the sale if you don't agree. Never happens, just saying.... THANK YOU.

Here is the standard PlanetarySounds grades records by (with help from Goldmine).
Remember, even with such a guide, grading is still subjective. Most albums, unless noted, are visually graded under bright lights. We strive to provide as much information as possible about each album. Please ask questions if unsure about anything BEFORE you bid.
Still Sealed (SS) As good as it gets. Unopened and most likely perfect all around.
Mint (M) Absolutely perfect in every way. Maybe played once. Handled with utmost care.
Near Mint (NM or M-) A nearly perfect record. The record shows no obvious signs of wear. Covers show no more than the most minor defects. The same holds true for inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves, etc.
Near Mint Minus or Very Good Plus Plus (NM- or VG++) Just a hair more wear than NM, but still very close to Near Mint overall. Vinyl may have nominal sleeve or paper scuffs, cover may have hint of wear. VG++ will be just a fraction below NM- due to one additional tiny defect.
Very Good Plus (VG+) Album and cover show some light signs that it was played and otherwise handled with care of it. Record surfaces may have slight surface scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect play. If not for a couple things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint.
Very Good (VG) Increased scuffs or light scratches, surface noise evident upon playing. Covers and labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers, or minor seam splits.
Very Good Minus (VG-) Certain background noise, possible click or pop, flawed item. Covers heavily damaged, major splits, tears, writing, etc.
