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".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo MGM pressing. Cover has some ring and edge wear, light aging, and some sticker spots on front.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Married Well
Verve, 1967. Near Mint-
The great Latin big band arrangements of Chico O'Farrill meet the groovy production of late-60's Verve – and the result is an excellent album of groovy instrumentals that just won't quit!
