Thousand Finger Man

LP (Item 2770) Solid State, 1969 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
Stone lost Latin funk! This one's Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way! Titles include "Thousand Finger Man", which has some especially firey conga breakdowns, plus "Jump Back", "Soul Limbo", "Tony's Theme (from Lady In Cement)", and "Come On Choo Choo Train".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Scorpio reissue.)

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.

Timeless (Netherlands), 1982. Near Mint-
This early 80s recording comes quite late in Machito's career, kind of a companion set to the Live At North Sea LP recorde the same year– and a great set featuring hard-hitting big band Latin jazz arrangements! Unlike the live set, the numbers here are tight and short, but feature the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orquesta Novel

Salsamania
Fania, 1976. Very Good+
A set with "salsa" in the title, but also one of those New York 70s records that gets back to basics too – bringing in a bit of charanga elements, including flute and violin – the latter of which is played by Latin disco maestro Eddie Drennon! The group features lead vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Belle Album
Hi Records, 1977. Very Good+
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall! Al does get a bit of help in the studio ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold
An instant classic the day it was released – and a perfect blending of the group's older freaked-out style with a slick late 70s funk sound that started showing up in the work of many other groups. "One Nation Under A Groove" is a monster cut with a hook that won't quit, and the LP ... LP, Vinyl record album

Warner, 1981. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the coolest soundtracks ever for a Burt Reynolds film – an a hip mix of soul and jazz tracks that's gone onto become a classic over the years!

Prince Phillip Mitchell

Top Of The Line
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint-
A classic set of smooth 70s soul from an under-recognized genius! Phillip Mitchell is a bit like his Atlantic Records contemporary Sam Dees – in that he wrote a lot of material for other singers, recorded a handful of singles, and worked mostly in the southern scene – but he also had a ...
