Salsamania

LP (Item 23565) Fania, 1976 — Condition: Very Good

Despite the salsa in the title, this one actually borrows a lot from more traditional sounds – and includes tipica style violin (by Eddie Drennon) and flute, next to lead vocals by Alberto Gonzales and Marco Motroni. Includes a few nice groovers, though – like the breezy "Mia Sera", and the lively "Mi Ritmo Bonito".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has surface and edge wear, a cut corner, and some aging.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Tico, 1966. Very Good
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond.
