Candela

LP (Item 115002) RMM, 1989 — Condition: Sealed
...

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

... LP, Vinyl record album
Fania, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of Pacheco's last charanga albums – with an expansion of the sound considerably from the earlier years, moving into territory that sounds even groovier than before! The album's got a great instrumental version of "Sunshine Superman", done in a Latin Soul pachanga mode – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tito Rodriguez

Live At Birdland
United Artists, 1961. Very Good+
A fantastic record that's truly one of Tito Rodriguez's best from the 60s – a very jazzy affair, and one that breaks the pattern of most of his other albums of the time! As the title implies, Tito's working here live at Birdland nightclub – with a jazz-based lineup to match the setting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orquesta Aragon

Cha Cha Cha
RCA, 1950s. Very Good+
Cha cha cha material – as the title might imply – classic sides by Orquesta Aragon, and one of their stronger albums for RCA! Songs include "Nosotros", "Cachita", "Silencio", "Yo Tengo Una Muneca", "Curatro Vidas", "El ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cook, Early 50s. Very Good+
A nice little session of Latin jazz – percussive at the bottom, but with an overall jazz mambo feel that's similar to early 50s work by Chico O'Farrill. Tracks are shortish, but have some nice solos by unnamed players – and titles include "Hi Fi Mambo", "Mambo A La ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orquesta Broadway

Salvaje (Savage)
Coco, 1975. Very Good+
70s charanga grooves from Orquesta Broadway – not nearly as savage as the title might imply, but a strong set nonetheless – cut in the best style of the Coco label! Harvey Averne produced, and he's got a nice way of making the group's traditional approach sound oddly fresh in the 70s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tipica Novel

Sabrosa
TR, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Produced by Louie Ramirez – with cuts that include "Organizence", "Solo Fue Un Error", "Cielito Lindo", "Vamos Pa'L Monte Company", and "Juan El Bobo". LP, Vinyl record album

Santos Colon

Love Story
Fania, 1971. Very Good+
Better than you might think, and not the straight romantic album you might expect – thanks to arrangements by Marty Sheller and Tito Puente – with titles that include "Mil Congojas", "No Es Posible", "Encuentrame", "Hay Que Recordar", "Love ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann

Layers
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
This might well be the best album that Les McCann ever cut during the 70s! It's got some killer electric piano riffs, of the sort that are being sampled heavily today by the kids, and which are getting his music to a whole new af generation. The tracks have a tight spacey funk sound, and they don' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Laid Back

Keep Smiling
Sire, 1983. Near Mint-
It takes a record like this one to remind us just what a magical crossover time the post-disco, post-punk days of the early 80s could be! Take two white guys from Denmark – Tim Stahl and John Guldberg – give them a drum machine and some funky beats, and out comes the breakdance classic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Twins
Atlantic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint-
A key album for any fan of classic Ornette Coleman – a 1971 Atlantic release that pulled together tracks from the late 50's and early 60's that didn't make it onto Ornette's earlier records for the label! Why these tracks weren't released at the time is a mystery to all, because the material ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wynton Kelly

Kelly At Midnite
Vee Jay, 1960. Near Mint-
Midnite is right – as the session's a moody, mellow late nite one – just spare trio material by Wynton, played in a group that features Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums! The titles are all nice and long – and really let Kelly stretch out on the keys – ... LP, Vinyl record album
