LP, Vinyl record album

(€3.38 || £3.00 || ¥448) (approx.)

Nice stuff from Willie – maybe not as hard and funky as his early 70s work, but very nice in kind of a Latin Club mode, thanks to some great production by Wayne Henderson! Includes his classic take on "Always There" – which is a great dancefloor jazz jammer – plus Henderson's groovy stepper "Keep that Same Old Feeling", and the tracks "Together", "Dindi", and "Pisces". (White label promo. Cover has a promo stamp, tracklist sticker, and some wear. Top seam has tape residue & splitting.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Spanish Blues Band
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Forget the "blues" in the title – this is another one of Willie Bobo's groovy Latin soul albums for Verve, with a good set of New York soul arrangements by Bert Keyes, Bert DeCoteaux, and Sonny Henry. Willie does a number of soul covers, like "Bad Bad Whiskey", "Walk ... LP, Vinyl record album
Uno Dos Tres
Verve, 1966. Near Mint-
Killer material, and one of Willie's best-ever albums for Verve! The album's filled with groovy numbers that hit the good mix of soul and Latin that was coming out of the New York scene at the time – and Willie delivers all of it with a tight jazzy sound that works great with the titles. ...

Conjunto Batacha
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+
A very tasty little set from this 60s Mexican combo – a lively rhythmic group with lots of bass and percussion at the bottom of their groove, topped off by male harmony vocals on most numbers! There's some really jazzy piano that sets a mood that makes the album differ from other Latin sides ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade!

A great album of salsa tracks recorded at the end of the 70s – when Ray was returning to the scene after a prolonged hand injury kept him out of music for a while. Despite this time off, though, Ray's in top top form – coming back to basics with a really heavy groove, picking up right ... LP, Vinyl record album

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
