Feelin' So Good

LP (Item 18683) Verve, Late 60s — Condition: Good+

One of the Verve albums that focuses on Willie Bobo's talents as a singer – still very much in the tight Latin Soul style of Willie's other work from the time, but with more vocals on the tracks – done in Willie's rough-styled soulful mode! Includes the groovers "Feelin' So Good" and "Sock It To Me", plus "Lil Red Riding Hood", "Sunshine Superman", "Call Me", "Dichoso", and "Sunny". Very nice pop Latin soul groove!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has moderate wear and moisture staining.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.
