LP (Item 19844) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Good

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".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono 360 Sound pressing. NOTE – Vinyl has a heated edge and skips on the first track on each side.)


  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.
