Lo Ultimo

LP (Item 26141) Embajador, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 34.99
Nice album of classic Latin tracks, and one that offers a mix of material from Charlie Palmieri, Emilio Reyes, and La Playa Sextet. Despite the obvious thrown together nature of the release, the material's all quite strong, and lots of hit has a very hard, very percussive sound. Charlie and his Duboney group contribute "Hermanos En Mambo" and "Charlie's Cha Cha"; Emilio Reyes performs "Alegra Cha Cha" and "Cafe Mambo"; and La Play Sextet play "San Luisera" and "Guaguanco En Tropicana".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has some edge wear.)

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.

Eye Of The Beholder
Atlantic/Fania, 1977. Very Good+
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love!

Columbia, 1962. Near Mint-
A really killer set from Joe Quijano – one of the most overlooked leaders of the early 60s, and a tremendous talent on these early Columbia albums!

Great stuff by Mongo – originally issued under another name during the early 60s, but presented here with a new cover in this late 60s reissue.

Gema, Mid 60s. Very Good+
One of the best tenor sax players in Latin music performs a mellow set of instrumental ballads with a moody late night feel. Jose "Chombo" Silva's got a great tone – almost the Coleman Hawkins of the Latin tenor – and the moody feel of this one has him working in a small ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album
