La Perfecta Combinacion

LP (Item 45980) Fania, 1971 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 6

A stellar Latin groover from Johnny Pacheco & Pete Colde Rodriguez – rightfully dubbed a perfect combination – recorded in 1969 and released in 1971, and we can think of no reason to have delayed such a smoking set! It's one of the better albums in the successful series of them that Pacheco cut with vocalist Rodriguez – with styles that stick mostly in a traditional Latin mode, with a few salsa touches that would become much more pronounced in the 70s. Titles include "La Esencia Del Guaguanco", "Blanca", "Sin Cana Y Sin Platanal", "Sonero", "Mi Nuevo Amor", and "Lo Anoro". Nice cover, too – with the pair toasting and playing dice! (Original multi-color label pressing. Cover has a small split on the top seam and light wear, with some stains and ripped corner on the back paste-on.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kudu, 1975. Very Good
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever!
