Up, Up, & Away

LP (Item 1387) Cotique, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Heavy duty Latin Soul from Johnny Rivera – an excellent bandleader from the late 60s, with a sound that's a lot harder than you might guess from the Tijuana Brass in the title! True, Johnny's group's got a lot of work on horns – but in a style that's like the best of the boogaloo combos on the scene at the time – like the groups of Johnny Colon or Larry Harlow. Tunes are all jumpy little groovers – with plenty of solid boogaloo and shing-a-ling numbers, including many with soulful English lyrics! Includes a great version of "Light My Fire", plus the cuts "Cloud Nine", "The Clown", "I'm So Lonely", "Peyote", and the mad groover "Johnny On The Warpath"!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Japanese pressing, on P-Vine!)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
