Bobo Motion

LP (Item 12142) Verve, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

Bobo Motion is groovy motion – heard here on one of Willie's best albums for Verve from the late 60s – a really unique blend of jazz, Latin, and soul-based rhythms! The set's even tighter than some of Willie's other Verve records – and like the classic Uno Dos Tres, it's got some nicely greasy numbers that slide around wonderfully in the groove – next to others that are cleaner, leaner, and plenty darn jazzy! Willie sings a bit on the record, but not much – and the real highlight is the heavy timbales on most of the rhythms, and the crack small combo Latin sound throughout. All tracks are great – and even familiar numbers sound fresh under the Bobo touch! Titles include "Ain't That Right", "Cute", "Evil Ways", "Show Me", "Black Coffee", "Night Walk", and "La Bamba".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cutout hole, some aging along the opening, and light wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
