Salsa At Woodstock

LP (Item 23799) Vaya, 1976 — Condition: Very Good+

An ultra-hip Latin session from the mid 70s – recorded up at Woodstock by reedman Bobby Roriguez – a player we know first from his work with Joe Bataan during the Latin soul years, but who is also a heck of a great leader on his own! Bobby plays flute, tenor, and a bit of clarinet – and the rest of the combo includes trumpet, trombone, and some very nice piano work from Al Dorsey – soaring out with almost a Bataan-like groove at times. The group features some great work by Eddie Hernandez, who does the trombone solos, and who also sings English lyrics on the tracks "Sunday Kind Of Love" and "What Happened", a goofy kind of Latin soul track. Also great is the descarga cut "Workout", with nice solos by everyone involved! And as a bonus, the back cover says "Thanks to all the stoned people at Woodstock"!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover has some splitting and stains along the bottom.)

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.

Celia & Johnny
Vaya, 1974. Very Good+
One of the many great recordings that Celia and Johnny cut together during the 70s – in a really great combination that had her soulful vocals giving a new injection of energy to the Pacheco sound of the time!

Killer Latin soul from one of the all-time greats – a collection of greatest hits from Mongo Santamaria, but a set that's every bit as essential as his full length albums for Columbia!

Soul Bag
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
A stone 60s smoker from Mongo Santmaria – and a great little set that really lives up to its title!

Classic modern soul from the legendary Frankie Beverly!

The record also features the wonderful "Southern ... LP, Vinyl record album
