Dance With Xavier Cugat

LP (Item 13755) Columbia, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good

Classic stuff from Cugie, with a mix of tracks in different rhythms – from mambo, to rhumba, to Afro-Cuban, to guaracha. Titles include "Bim Bam Bum", "Good, Good, Good", "Oye Negra", "Cuba Libre", and "Babalu".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono 6 eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has 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.

Xavier Cugat Today!
Decca, Late 60s. Very Good+
Very groovy stuff from Cugie! It's the late 60s, and he's got more of a pop Latin groove than earlier – and lays down some nice peppy covers of pop material, plus a few other Latin standards. Not exactly Latin soul – but not that far off, either. Includes a great version of "Samb ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dance Party
Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Groovy batch of instrumental Latin cuts, with a sound that's a mixture of Latin soul and pop 60's instrumentation. Cugie's usual sound isn't that much in place, but that's ok, because tracks like "Thunderball", "Hang On Sloopy", "Tabasco", and "Soul Sauce" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tight record of earlier Cumbia stuff, recorded by Columbia as part of their great Latin series from the early 60's (when the Catskills market was big enough to make it worthwhile for major labels to put this stuff out).
