King & I/El Rey Y Yo

LP (Item 2194) Tico, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A late 60s outing from the team of Tito Puente and La Lupe – and a record that has some nice groovy touches! We're not the biggest fans of Lupe's vocals, but in Tito's company she really swings nicely – and the whole album keeps things moving along in a sweet 60s Tico Records groove. Tunes are done in a mix of styles, and titles include "Steak o Lean", "Rezo-a-Yemaya", "Mi Gente", "Cumba, Cumba", and "Jala Jala Panameno".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mexican pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

That Latin Touch
Tico, 1959. Very Good+
A dreamy album of Latin instrumentals, played by pianist Marco Rizo and his orchestra, in sort of a pop-Latin sound with a nice easy sound. There's some nice covers on here – like a version of Martin Denny's "Quiet Village", and a take on the "I Love Lucy" theme, which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Piano & Percussion
Tico, 1960. Very Good+
Nice jazzy Latin groovers from Marco – played on hard heavy piano, with lots of tight spare percussion in the background! The tracks push past the usual Cha Cha sort of groove – and seem to encompass a number of complicated themes and styles, agumented by some extra exotic percussion. ... LP, Vinyl record album
