Rough Guide To Latin Disco

CD (Item 115950) Rough Guide, Late 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
Funk and soul meet Latin rhythms – and the result is a really special moment in the New York scene – a time when disco rhythms helped the underground scene burn brightly in the midtown clubs! Back in the 60s, nightspots in the city would routinely host Latin bands – but by the disco generation, much of the Latin action had retreated uptown – until grooves like these got things going again in a whole new light – returning the artists to a wider audience through a swirling blend of strings, jazzy instrumentation, and soulful vocals! The style's one that was so strong back in the day, it's had plenty of power over the years – and the set here also brings together some later variants of Latin disco from around the globe. Titles include "Sunny" by Yambu, "Salsoul Hustle" by Salsoul Orchestra, "La Botella" by Joe Bataan, "Dancin & Prancin" by Candido, "C'Mon Baby Do The Latin Hustle" by Jose Fajardo, "Combate A Kung Fu" by Wganda Kenya, "Latin Lover" by Joe Bataan, "X-Perience" by Grupo X, "Firewalker" by Jungle Fire, and "Everlasting Love" by Los Charly's Orchestra.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
