Mongomania

LP (Item 19844) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Killer Latin soul from Mongo, and a great batch of original tracks, played by a groovy little combo that includes Bobby Capers on alto, Ray Maldonado on trumpet, and a young Hubert Laws on flute, who also did some of the arrangements! The sound is hard, tight, and jazzy – with the kind of heavy rhythms and ripping solos that made Mongo's best Columbia albums such a treat. Titles include "I Wanna Know", "Bossa-Negra", "Mongo's Boogaloo", "Cuco & Olga", "Melons", and "The Goose".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(360 Sound stereo pressing. Cover has some ring and edge 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.

Sorcery!
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A strange little record – a bit different than usual from percussionist Sabu Martinez, and with a slight exotica feel too! There's a groove that's still mostly Latin – but, like most of Sabu's wonderful music, things go way past the obvious – as percussion takes hold, and Sabu ... LP, Vinyl record album

The Soul of Spanish Harlem – and the upbeat sound of the Joe Cuba Sextet – a hard-to-find album recorded just before the dawn of the classic Latin soul era!
