De Mi Para Ti (From Me To You)

LP (Item 26780) Tico, 1965 — Condition: Good
The groovy 60s orchestra of Tito Puente gets some romantic vocals from the great Santos Colon – and the result is this classic Tico album that we hardly ever see on vinyl these days. Titles include "El Agitador", "Imagenes", "El Plato Roto", "Esperame", "Timbalito", and "Vete Pa'La Luna".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono orange label pressing. Vinyl has a number of marks and plays with some pops and crackle. Cover has light surface wear, edge wear, and some very faint stains and moisture damage.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

Mambo Fantasy
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good-
One of Joe Loco's most haunting albums, and a moody mix of spare Latin percussion with haunting off-kilter piano solos, in a swirling blend of tracks that form Joe's Mambo Fantasy.

Pete With A Latin Beat
Tico, 1960. Very Good+
Pete in a very Latin Beat – playing vibes with heavy percussion, in a style that has equal parts jazz and equal parts Latin, and which moves past the sleepier sound of some of his earlier, mellower records.
