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! The result was a great blend of new styles and respectful traditionalism – one that comes off especially well on this record, which features some great work on tres by Charlie Rodriguez. Titles include the tasty groover "Quimbara", plus "Tengo El Idde", "Toro Mata", "El Tumbao Y Celia", and "Lo Tuyo Es Mental".

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Only They Could Have Made This Album
Vaya, 1977. Near Mint-
The title certainly gets it right – as the album's a near-perfect effort from these 70s Latin superstars – one that seems to bring out the best from both! Celia's the lead vocalist in a set of musical backdrops strongly crafted by Willie Colon – soaring with salsa energy, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Understanding Latin Rhythms Vol 1
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the very first sessions recorded by the Latin Percussion label – a groundbreaking record that features very heavy rhythms throughout! The group's co-led by Jose Mangual and Carlos Patato Valdez – each of whom handle plenty of percussion, alongside Manny Oquendo on timbales, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vaya, 1980. Very Good
One of Mongo's good electric Latin fusion LPs for Vaya, and a nice batch of tracks with a good groove to them, and a nice jazzy feel. There's some nice electric piano moments, and the band grooves nicely on cuts like "TV", "Images", "Havana", and "Mucho Mas". LP, Vinyl record album
Irakere
Columbia, 1979. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fuerte!
Concord/Picante, 1987. Near Mint-
Tight, hard and straight ahead Latin jazz from one of the greats of the 80s! Poncho's work on Concord/Picante is always a treat – and this record's a very nice batch of no-nonsense Latin jazz tracks, played with strong arrangements, and a sweet west coast vibe. Titles include "Co Co My ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tornado
El Sondido, 1976. Near Mint- (reissue)
There's a tornado on the cover, and a tornado in the grooves as well – as the mighty Ocho step off their first three albums for UA Latino, and move into even headier territory here on the El Sonido label! The group are really at the top of their game – effortlessly blending jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tremendo Cumban
Seeco, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
One of the best mid 50s LPs by Machito – with a raw tight sound, vocals by Machito and Graciela, and a mix of tracks that features a lot of lively mambos, done in a guaracha groove. Nice stuff, and without the sleepiness that can sometimes mar other Machito albums from the same time. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Jewels
Fantasy, Early 60s. Very Good
Classic mellow Latin groovers from Joe, and one of the nicer sides he ever cut for Fantasy. The record's got Joe working with his quintet on a mixture of Latin standards – like "Frenesi", "Sin Ti", "Perfida", and "Amor, Amor, Amor" – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Afro Rhythms
Kimbo, Late 60s. Very Good
A rare set of heavy percussion from Montego Joe – done right around the same time as his work with the Har-You Percussion Ensemble! LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1958. Very Good
Tight groovy cha cha tracks by Tito, recorded with more edge than his similar stuff for RCA, and presented here in a reissue of a record that's darn rare in the original (we've never seen a copy!) Tito's joined by vocalist Pepe Luis, and the set list includes nice ones like "Cha Cha ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boogaloo Con Los Tres Grandes
Puchito, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Given the vintage of the artists, you can imagine that the record doesn't live up to its promise of being a boogaloo/Latin Soul LP – but it's still a great batch of older tracks with a raw Cuban feel, even if it is hiding under a title that promises younger sounds! Titles include "Se Va ... LP, Vinyl record album
