Tropical Heatwave

LP (Item 1493) Hi Fi, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

A Tropical Heat Wave from the Rene Paulo Group – actually a very cool record by an obscure little combo featuring a guitar/piano/bass/drums lineup – with a sound that's a mix of tight jazz and exotic lounge. We don't know much about them, but they groove very nicely on all the tracks on this set, with some warmly cooking numbers nicely described by the album title, and also some nicely paired down and laidback groovers, too! The set includes a number of Irving Berlin compositions, but they manage to get a lot more out of them than most groups – and the titles include "Reaching For The Moon (Bossa Nova)", "Soft Lights & Sweet Music", "Rhapsody", "How Deep Is The Ocean", "Alexander's Rag Time Band" and "I Never Had a Chance".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)

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.
