Willie Colon — El Malo ... LP 9.99

Great stuff – and a very sharp album cut by Willie during the Latin soul era, featuring a bunch of tracks that veers more towards the boogaloo side of things than his later albums! The groove is nice and hard – stripped down with the youthful energy that Willie brought to the scene at the time – and the record features great vocals by Hector Lavoe, Yayo El Indo, and Elliot Romero. Features the wonderful piano-bassed groover – "Jazzy" – which spirals out with descarga-like energy! Other great tracks include the boogaloo numbers "Skinny Papa", "Willie Baby", "Willie Whopper", and "El Malo" – but the whole album's a winner! (Multicolor label pressing. Cover has ring & edge wear with clear tape along the bottom seam.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Other Road
Fania, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Ray Barretto's definitely going down different road here – and sounding amazingly great in the process! The record is unlike anything else that Ray did at the time – a stunning batch of fusion tracks, with more of an electric jazz approach than usual – one that's a soaringly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gracias
Fania, 1979. Near Mint-
Good salsa session from the 70's, with the long jammer "Indestructible" (eleven minutes long!), plus "Hipocresia Y Falsedad", "Alma Con Alma", and "Ay No". Lots of nice grooves, and a very tight band that includes a firey twin-sax frontline, plus some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Latin Piper
Fania, 1972. Very Good
Another departure for Pacheco – as he kicks off the 70s with a set of funky instrumental tunes! The tracks on this set are quite different from either his earlier charanga records, or his later salsa ones – and sparkle with the kind of "soul meets Latin instrumental" style of ...

A wonderful early album by Orchestra Harlow – a real criss-cross of styles, done with the kind of energy that made this group one of the most popular on the New York scene! Larry Harlow's at the head of the group on piano, and a young Ismael Miranda sings lead vocals – mostly in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cotique, 1968. Sealed
Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

What Now My Love
Tico, Late 60s. Sealed
One of a few sides cut by singer Shawn Elliott for Tico during the late 60s – with backing by Tito Puente that really makes the album worth having! The bulk of the tracks on the album are Spanish-language romantic tunes – but there's two surprising gems near the end of each side: ... LP, Vinyl record album
