Pete With A Latin Beat

LP (Item 22093) Tico, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+
Pete in a very Latin Beat – playing vibes with heavy percussion, in a style that has equal parts jazz and equal parts Latin, and which moves past the sleepier sound of some of his earlier, mellower records. Cha cha is the basic groove of the tunes, but the execution and the heavier style of instrumentation takes many of the numbers past the stock formula of the era – thanks to Pete and his sweet work on vibes! Titles include "Terrace Jump", "Playboy", "Blen Blen Blen", "Toni's Cha Cha", and "The Baker".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some wear and aging, with a large stain at the bottom right, split bottom seam held with clear tape, and a shop stamp in back.)

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.
