Celia CruzBravo Celia Cruz (remastered edition) ... CD
Tico/Fania, 1967. Used ... $16.99
A late 60s album from Celia Cruz – but one with a sound that's very similar to her classic early recordings of the 50s! The feel here is quite similar to those – recorded in Mexico, with backings from the orchestras of Memo Salamanca and Juan Bruno Tarraza – both of whom support ... read more CD

Tico, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $14.99
Great Joe Cuba set from the mid 60's.

Decca, 1969. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The definitely got the "quiet excitement" in the title right here – because the Cugie featured on this record is a long way from his harder, heavier 50s sides!

A strange concept – possibly because of the disco popularity of Beethoven's 5th – but sounding nothing like that, and instead a wonderful album of strong salsa cuts!
