Pacheco Y Su Charanga

LP (Item 27098) Alegre, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good-
A landmark album, and the first-ever record on the young Alegre label – a sure-fire hit that put both the company and Pacheco firmly on the map! The record's a genre-setting batch of hard early charanga grooves filled with great flute work from a young Johnny Pacheco – recording here with a sharp, focused sound that really set a whole new level for the New York scene! The album's got a stripped-down sound that really paves the way for new inventions to come in 60s Latin – and other members of the group include violinist Jose "Chombo" Silva and vocalist Elliot Romero. The cover's a great Izzy Sanabria modernist ink drawing – and titles include "El Chivo", "La Melodia", "La Malanga", and the nice descarga "Tema De Pacheco".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a half split top seam, wide center splits in the spine and bottom seam, with a small corner tear in the back paste-on.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.
