New Ruben BladesMaestra Vida – Segunda Parte ... LP
Fania, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold .... $9.99
An amazing achievement for Ruben Blades – a full suite of tracks conceived and composed by Ruben as a "disco drama" on wax! The work isn't the disco-styled album you might think from this description – and is more of a mini-opera or concept album by Blades, one that features ambitious arrangements from Louie Cruz, Marty Sheller, and Carlos Franzetti – using strings and more standard Latin backings to expand the tunes tremendously, and make the whole album work with the full drama it requires. There's a few spoken bits on the set, which give way to some great songs – and the album also has a few instrumental passages. Willie Colon produced and supervised the whole effort – and tracks on this second part include "Epilogo", "El Velorio", "Manuela Despues", "El Entierro", "Hay Que Viver", and "Maestra Vida". LP, Vinyl record album

Ruben BladesNothing But The Truth ... LP
Elektra/Wounded Bird, 1988. Near Mint- .... $6.99
One of Ruben Blades' key crossover efforts of the 80s – and an album that has him stepping far from the salsa ghetto of the 70s, into a much wider range of styles! Most of the lyrics here are in English – as on other Blades from the time – and although the instrumentation echoes some Latin styles, there's also a more contemporary pop approach going on too. The album includes some songwriting contributions from Lou Reed, Sting, and Elvis Costello – and titles include "Chameleons", "Shamed Into Love", "In Salvador", "The Calm Before The Storm", "The Miranda Syndrome", "Letters To The Vatican", "I Can't Say", and "The Hit". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch & a promo stamp.)
