Joe Cuba (Embajador)

LP (Item 22655) Discos Embajador, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good-
Great early work from Joe Cuba! Sure, the tracks were recorded before Joe's legendary Latin Soul years – but the vibe is nice and fresh, and the tight stripped-down approach shows how much Joe was ready to revitalize Latin music in the 60s. The percussion's nice and strong, and many cuts have a very cool Latin vibes sound! Titles include "Joe Cuba's Mambo", "Con Ni Mambo", "Alegre Mambo", and "Carita Sucia". Very tasty!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear, tape on the spine, and a few names across the top.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Soaring 70s salsa from Ismael Miranda – cut at a time when he was making some great waves with the Fania All Stars, but sounding even better on his own!
