Fat Mama/Work Song

7-inch (Item 16848) Tico, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Despite his proclaimed hatred of the Latin Soul genre, Tito Puente managed to score big with "Fat Mama", this tight little groover that has a totally catchy boogaloo riff. "Work Song" is a nice soulful Latin version of the Nat Adderley hit, too!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo. Label has a small sticker and some pen.)

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.

Marquee, Mid 60s. Very Good
Nice one! "Here Comes Da Judge" takes the famous comedic vocal refrain, and creates a nice rollicking funky number with some great rolling piano chords that kick off right as the song begins! "Big Red" is more of a heavy sax workout, but both tracks swing real nice nice nice. 7-inch, Vinyl record
King, Early 60s. Very Good-
This is Hank's first version of the track, not the one produced by James Brown. That doesn't stop it from being nice and soulful, though – with a great rolling R&B groove that made it one of his best early moments! Killer vocals on both sides, too! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Gerald McCauley with Cold Diamond & Mink

Wondering (voc, inst)
Timmion (Finland), 2019. Near Mint-
The sweet soul vocals of Gerald McCauley sound wonderful here – delivered with this slow, heartbreaking pace that really fits the mellow funk laid down by Cold Diamond & Mink – almost making the whole thing feel like a classic New Jersey/Philly gem from back in the day! 7-inch, Vinyl record
