PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING:
I ONLY SHIP TO PAYPAL VERIFIED ADDRESSES ONLY. Please don't order asking me to ship ANYWHERE else. If I have to provide you a refund because of YOUR mistake, or oversight, Paypal WILL NOT refund me ANY commissions or fees that I paid to complete this transaction. Therefor I WILL DEDUCT those fees from your refund. I WILL NOT be out of pocket because of your mistake.
‐‐---------------------------------------------
In light of the high cost in shipping, I decided to provide a reduced shipping cost of $22.00 outside of the USA (Except for Mexico) for a maximum of 2 vinyl records. But if you're going to order more than 2 records, PLEASE DO NOT AUTOPAY. I will work with you, and give you a shipping discount. But
PLEASE WAIT FOR MY CORRECTED INVOICE.
NOTE: SORRY BUT IN LIGHT OF PROBLEMS WITH THE MEXICAN POST OFFICE, THIS REDUCED SHIPPING METHOD IS NOT AVAILABLE TO MEXICO.

NOTE: Shipping discounts or Free posting within the USA, or outside of the USA IS NOT applicable on ANY accepted offers.
-----------------------------------------------
NOTE TO BUYERS: Discogs has implemented a Shipping Policy. If you see ANYTHING of interest within my inventory that DOES NOT include the words: Free posting within the USA, or Worldwide within my description, PLEASE DO NOT ORDER thinking that I will ship for free. IT WILL COST YOU $22.00 TO SHIP OUTSIDE OF THE USA. Please DO NOT PAY UNTIL I INVOICE YOU. And please, since there are contributors here who flagrantly change pictures, change descriptions, and unwittingly request merges, PLEASE, BEFORE you order, contact me for any questions, edition verification, pictures, and anything else.

OjO: Ordenes afuera de los EEAU, excepto a Mejico, pagan un envio de $22.00. FAVOR DE NO PAGAR ANTES DE YO PODER FACTURAR.
-----------------------------------------------
I DO NOT sell ANY counterfeit records THAT HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED HERE AS UNOFFICIAL REISSUES, or ANY Discos Melser Records which 99% ARE ALL PIRATED. The only legitimate editions are those Vaya and International Records which include the symbols of (p) and (c) on the respective center record labels. Regardless of whatever release year is shown on the center record label and/or jacket, NONE were released prior to 1970.

-----------------------------------------------
To all old and new buyers: If you don't understand the Goldmine Record Grading System that is used here, PLEASE PURCHASE ELSEWHERE😡
------------------------------------------
Please keep checking your tracking, and ask your post office for any delivery updates regarding. This corona virus has affected ALL deliveries Worldwide.
------------------------------------------
If you are an absolute audiophile perfectionist who listens to your records on headphones and have the most technologically advanced stylus, please don't order a VG+ graded record from me with the expectation that they will play in absolute VG+ condition, they will not. These old records were made with old technology, and I don't want you to be disappointed. If you understand the difference between a NM and VG+ graded record, and you're typically happy with VG+ graded records, you'll be happy with mine. But, "If YOU DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, PLEASE PURCHASE ELSEWHERE," I don't need ANY after sale headaches.
-----------------------------------------------
If you're relatively new to purchasing used vinyl records online, I suggest that you understand the universal grading system:

https://www.goldminemag.com/collector-resources/record-grading-101
-----------------------------------------------
NOTE: I mail my records with their original inner record sleeves which may be torn, aged, taped, etc. If a problem, please purchase elsewhere.
-----------------------------------------------
My records are original pressings manufactured for use on equipment of that period, and may have a different playback on your Super Duper Dandy Equipment.
-----------------------------------------------
OjO: Most of my prices are higher than most for a very specific reason; "They ARE NOT a Repress or a Reissue" disguised as and being sold as an original. If you see anything of interest, you have the option of making a reasonable offer, but please don't make any low ball offers, as I will immediately decline the offer, and block you from making ANY future offers, or purchases.
-----------------------------------------------
Note regarding Shipping Prices to buyers "Outside" of the US, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and Hawaii where shipping will ALWAYS be only $4.00, or free. I NEVER inflate actual shipping cost in order to increase any profits.
-----------------------------------------------
No le cojan miedo a mis precios, haz me una oferta, pero ya saben que son los originales, y no reproducciones, o sea Reissues.
-----------------------------------------------
Welcome to Salsaland, As far as I know, I own the largest collection of used original 1st editions of Latin music for sale. I've been selling to serious audiophile collectors Worldwide before the internet. And unlike many other sellers here, I Pre-Play all of my Latin and Jazz records before I list them for sale. If you have ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SOUND QUALITY OF ANY OF MY ROCK RECORDS, PLEASE ASK BEFORE ORDERING. I don't need the headache!
-----------------------------------------------
NOTE: I have a 4 day grace period in place which provides an adequate time for any buyer to complete their transaction. If you can not complete payment within this 4 day period, PLEASE DON'T ORDER. I sell on multiple sites, and it is time consuming to delete, and waste my time time in re-entering that inventory for sale again. Again, there is a 4 day Automatic "Non-Paying Buyer" Cancellation, and the Feedback is automatically placed by Discogs as a Non-Paying Buyer.
------------------------------------------
THE MAJORITY OF MY RECORDS ARE ORIGINAL PRESSINGS UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED. I do not disguise any Reissues to be an Original. If it's a Reissue or a Repress, I will disclose that fact within my description. And rather that just use a grading system and call it a day, I try to disclose every iota of any flaws so that you'll know what to expect. I don't like surprises or let downs either. Any questions, just ask.
-----------------------------------------------
Back in the late 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's I promoted Latin Dances, and Live Doo Wop Shows in NY, Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, Miami, and in Richmond, Va. I've met and was friends with many of the great orquesta leaders and musicians like: Kako, Rafael Cortijo, Machito, Charlie Palmieri, Joe Cuba, Cachao, Jerry Hernandez of Orch. Dee Jay, George Rodriguez and his New Swing Sextet and many more. Those whom are no longer with us, I miss them everyday!
I have been a collector since 1967, and selling since 1980, before the Internet. Please understand that I am about the business of selling my collection of original records before I drop dead and my wife throws them out.

I owned 2 After-Hours Night Clubs in the Bronx. I was the 1st to convince Joe Bataan to come out of retirement when we met at my old Le Noirs After Hours Club, and in 1985 I did his Come-Back dance at the old Club Cacique in the Bronx, and in 2007 I finally convinced Jerry Hernandez to make his "Come Back" with Orquesta Dee Jay, and he's doing GREAT. Another old orchestra I had the pleasure of being a pain in his ass since 2008, FINALLY made his Come Back, Gus Colon from the great Orch. Colon he made his official Come Back in Colombia, and in an arena with other great orchestras, and thousands of spectators.
-----------------------------------------------
I still have THOUSANDS of many rare, original LP's in various genres that I'll never live to list. If you have a Want/Wish list of ANY records in ANY genre, please share it with me and I will include it within my inventory here.
And if you're in Facebook, I'm there at:
https://www.facebook.com/izzy.nofue/

And finally...
I reserve the right in very rare circumstances to cancel an order which I believe would be too much of a shipping and financial risk.
Salsaludos siempre, Izzy
