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".  © 1996-2022, 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.

An amazing achievement for Ruben Blades – a full suite of tracks conceived and composed by Ruben as a "disco drama" on wax!

Love Is Seguida
Fania, 1974. Very Good+
Fierce and funky grooves from the glory days of the NuYorican scene! The album's a killer – filled with uptempo tracks that mix together Latin funk, jazz, and salsa – into an electrified groove that burns mightily across all the tracks! The album's got a great blend of electric keys ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestra Harlow

Hommy – A Latin Opera
Fania, 1973. Very Good
Orchestra Harlow's answer to the Who's Tommy – Hommy, a Latin Opera, and one of the few concept albums we know from the New York Latin scene of the time! The tracks are fairly short, and they're separated by short "interludes" throughout the album that feature some cool spoken bits ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestra Harlow

Salsa
Fania, 1974. Near Mint-
Orchestra Harlow were already at the top of their game by the time of this classic early 70s album – yet they also managed to leap forward strongly too – both embracing and lending a name to the growing salsa movement of the time! The streetwise sounds that Harlow created in the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
Alegre, Early 60s. Very Good-
A landmark album, and the first-ever record on the young Alegre label – a sure-fire hit that put both the company and Pacheco firmly on the map!

Discos Embajador, Early 60s. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo Santamaria

Soca Me Nice
Concord, 1988. Near Mint-
Late 80s Latin from Mongo Santamaria – but still pretty darn nice! The set's got Santamaria stretching out in the rhythms a bit more from the early days – and also picking up some of the jazz flavors of the Concord label as well – but overall, the proceedings are still quite ...
