Salsamania

LP (Item 23565) Fania, 1976 — Condition: Very Good+
A set with "salsa" in the title, but also one of those New York 70s records that gets back to basics too – bringing in a bit of charanga elements, including flute and violin – the latter of which is played by Latin disco maestro Eddie Drennon! The group features lead vocals by Alberto Gonzales and Marco Motroni – and titles include the breezy "Mia Sera", and the lively "Mi Ritmo Bonito".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes Fania inner sleeve. 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.

Ray Barretto

Eye Of The Beholder
Atlantic/Fania, 1977. Very Good+
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love!

United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good+
An overstuffed album that features 15 of Tito's Latin groovers for United Artists – not necessarily "hits" in the chart-bound way, but all of them solid senders for the Latin audience of the early 60s. Titles include "Penasa En Mi", "Cara De Payso", "Machaca ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint-
A really killer set from Joe Quijano – one of the most overlooked leaders of the early 60s, and a tremendous talent on these early Columbia albums! The album's got a raw, highly percussive groove – one that goes way past the simple pachanga groove of the time, and which bristles with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
