LP (Item 16755) Blue Note, 1977 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A really unique chapter in the career of percussionist Willie Bobo – a rare one-off album for Blue Note – done with a sweet Cali vibe all the way through! Bobo plays his usual percussion, but also sings a bit too – in this charming style that's never too overdone – a deeply personal approach that sounds great next to the album's electric arrangements – all in a vibe that mixes Latin with 70s funk and fusion – all with that beautiful 70s Blue Note balance between polish and poise, groove and soul! The range of sounds is mighty nice – and titles include "Suitcase Full Of Dreams", "Wacky Tobacky", "Dreamin", "Keep On Walkin", "Funk De Mambo", and the "Kojak Theme". (Cover has a cut corner and some wear & waviness near the bottom seam.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Spanish Blues Band
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Forget the "blues" in the title – this is another one of Willie Bobo's groovy Latin soul albums for Verve, with a good set of New York soul arrangements by Bert Keyes, Bert DeCoteaux, and Sonny Henry. Willie does a number of soul covers, like "Bad Bad Whiskey", "Walk ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nice stuff from Willie – maybe not as hard and funky as his early 70s work, but very nice in kind of a Latin Club mode, thanks to some great production by Wayne Henderson! Includes his classic take on "Always There" – which is a great dancefloor jazz jammer – plus ... LP, Vinyl record album
Unfinished Masterpiece
Coco, 1975. Near Mint-
Eddie Palmieri's work for the Coco label is some of his best of the 70s, and this album is no exception – and while the title may call the record "unfinished", it sounds pretty darn well done to our ears – far better than most other Latin sides of the time! The album includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Uno Dos Tres
Verve, 1966. Near Mint-
Killer material, and one of Willie's best-ever albums for Verve! The album's filled with groovy numbers that hit the good mix of soul and Latin that was coming out of the New York scene at the time – and Willie delivers all of it with a tight jazzy sound that works great with the titles. ...

Live At The Cheetah Vol 1
Fania, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
Killer early work by the Fania All Stars – caught live at the legendary Cheetah club, which was the heart of the New York salsa scene at the start of the 70s! The album is easily one of the best by the group – and features long tracks that really capture the jamming intensity that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1967. Very Good+
An early classic from vocalist Jimmy Sabater – one of the greatest singers of the New York scene, and a vocalist who was equally talented with both English and Spanish lyrics! The record's got a nicely soulful feel – not really Latin Soul, but in the kind of sophisticated approach that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Salsoul, 1977. Very Good+
Excellent collection of tracks from Salsoul's great Latin series from the mid 70's! Despite the "disco" in the title, most of the tracks on here are straight salsa, and the LP features tracks like "La Trompeta y La Flauta" by Cachao, "No Critiques" by Libre, "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sun Of Latin Music
Coco, 1974. Very Good
A seminal bit of 70s Latin from Eddie Palmieri – a rull, rich session that really earns its "sun" title! Eddie's working here in that complicated approach to jazzy rhythms from the later Tico years – inflected by a bit of straighter salsa rhythms – in a style that ... LP, Vinyl record album
