Celia Cruz & Johnny Pacheco — Celia & Johnny (180 gram pressing) ... LP 21.99

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".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Vaya, 1972. Good+
Soaring trumpet-heavy salsa from the combo of Ernie Agosto – a great little album with the tightness and focus of some of the best early 70s work from producer Willie Colon!

One of the real standouts in the career of Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz – a record of incredible tightness, and one that set a whole new level for Puerto Rican salsa in the 70s!

Fania, 1972. Good
Supposedly the end of Willie Colon's early "crime" career – as the title and cover imply that he's finally been brought to trial!

Wild!
Tower, Late 60s. Very Good+
Madly romping Latin from this obscure group led by pianist Phil Moore III – a combo who effortlessly groove through a blend of boogaloo, Latin jazz, and plenty of percussion-heavy exotica – all in a style that's very much their own! There's a loose and free feel here that's far ... LP, Vinyl record album
Together
Disco International, 1977. Sealed
Surprisingly nice album that has Tito Ramos and Tony Rojas reuniting in a crackling session of 70s salsa that mixes English and Spanish lyrics, both with the kind of soul that the band was famous for in the 60s. Tracks include "Hello My Love", "Los TNT", "La Mujer ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alegre, 1972. Good+
An excellent – and hard-to-find – album by Charlie from the early 70s!
