Jammin' Live

LP (Item 12149) Vaya, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+
Exactly the kind of album that reminds us how great Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz were in their early days – a live set that features introductions from Izzy Sanabria, and a smoking sound throughout! At this point in their career, the duo were definitely starting to reach out with a more mainstream vibe – but still have lots of their raw, soulful elements intact – those qualities that made them a key Puerto Rican inclusion on the New York scene of the 60s – with a sound that influenced so many in the salsa generation to come! This album captures the duo right at the juncture of the two eras – something you can definitely hear in Ricardo's sharp arrangements – and Bobby gets a bit of vocal help from female singer Miki Vimari. The set includes a Latin version of "Let It Be", plus the great "Descarga El Bajo", and the cuts "La Zafra", "Matiagua", "La Cosita", and "Te Quiero Te Quiero".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing – a nice copy!)

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.
