GNP, Late 50s. Very Good ... $24.99
A classic set of west coast Latin from Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo! The album's one of Jack's best from the early days – a hard-driving set of short and jazzy numbers that are filled with strong percussion and good solos – showing that LA could cut Latin every bit as great as ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Orfeon/Tico, 1967. Very Good ... $19.99
A late 60s album from Celia Cruz – but one with a sound that's very similar to her classic early recordings of the 50s!

Celia Cruz and Johnny Pacheco join forces with vocalist Justo Betancourt and pianist Papo Lucca – the latter of whom was making plenty big waves in music with Sonora Poncena at the time!

Spanoramic, Early 60s. Very Good ... $24.99
Romantic Latin from the Cuarteto Mayari and trumpeter Placido Acevedo – a set of well-recorded material from the group, possibly from the later years of their reformation!

Tico, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond. The record's a stone winner – filled with boogaloo tracks delivered by Joe's firey young sextet, a killer ensemble ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Xavier CugatBang! Bang! ... LP
Decca, 1966. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
A real turn to hipper territory for Xavier Cugat – a move away from more familiar Latin modes, and into a range of groovy sounds for the 60s! There's still a bit of the classic vamp we've come to know and love in Cugie – but the rhythms are leaner overall, and swing with some great mod ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, 1961. Near Mint- ... $4.99
We're not sure that this was actually a "greatest hits" because it's hard to find these tracks turning up elsewhere but it's a nice batch of lighthearted Latin dance tracks in any case. Tracks include "Mama Inez", "Tea For Two", "Taboo", "Sway", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Xavier Cugat turns his hit Latin sound to tunes from Mexico – working his way through medleys of traditional tunes, all given a late 50s zip, plus shorter numbers that work equally well in his choppy, percussive style.

Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Silly title – but a great album, with Cugie playing relatively straight Latin versions of 60s pop hits. A few of the tunes are a bit silly, but there's less of the goofiness that "caricatures" might imply. Titles include "Papa Loves Mambo", "Night Train", " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Cugie's more popular albums – and a record that has him re-recording older hits for the hi-fi generation.
