Fuerte!

LP (Item 27771) Concord/Picante, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-

Tight, hard and straight ahead Latin jazz from one of the greats of the 80s! Poncho's work on Concord/Picante is always a treat – and this record's a very nice batch of no-nonsense Latin jazz tracks, played with strong arrangements, and a sweet west coast vibe. Titles include "Co Co My My", "Fuerte", "Ixtapa", "Baila Mi Gente", "Alafia", and "No Llores, Mi Corazon".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Dance The Cha Cha Cha
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good
One of Tito's classic 50's recordings for Tico, all of which have a much rawer sound than his work for RCA from the same time.

Sones Del Humor Popular
Siboney (Cuba), 1987. Very Good-
Obscure recordings from Faustino Oramas – aka El Guayabero! Despite the date of the sessions, though, the material here is relatively traditional – a rootsy blend of percussion and guitar, topped by fast, clever vocals from El Guayabero – always presented in a relatively lively ...

Nice sampler of 60s Detroit soul produced by the fantastic Ollie McLaughlin.

Mazarati
Paisley Park, 1986. Very Good+
A short-lived Prince side project from the mid 80s – pretty tinny, and decidedly weaker than his own work, or that of groups like The Family or The Time. Titles include "Strawberry Lover", "Suzy", "Player's Ball", "Lonely Girl On Bourbon Street", and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Timmy Thomas

Magician
Glades, 1976. Very Good+
Timmy Thomas has always been a magician with his music – one of the first cats to really make the spare sound of a drum machine work in soul music, and a singer with a wonderful ability to make sweet little melodies appear out of thin air! Here, Thomas ups his game with some slightly fuller ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blow For Me, A Toot To You
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good+
After Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker came head to head with James Brown in the mid 70s, they broke off and formed the Horny Horns contingent – a tight funky backing section that's featured on a number of late 70s funk sessions, and which also recorded some extremely nice numbers on their own! ...
