World's Greatest Latin Band

LP (Item 33287) GNP, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Fairly standard work from Machito, with a number of vocal cuts that feature either Machito or Graciela – but a record that really shines in the jazzy moments! These cuts include a version of "Pent-Up House", with a sax solo by Aaron Sachs, a reading of "Tenderly" with a trumpet solo by Jimmy Zito, and "Bernie's Tune", a nice ensemble groover.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover is bent a bit around the edges, with discoloration from age and a vintage price sticker on back.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Perez Prado

Havana 3 AM
RCA, 1956. Very Good+
A real Latin standard of the 50s – packaged with a title and a cover that perfectly evoke the lure of pre-Castro Cuba at its best – and played by Perez Prado with a style that's more open and flowing than some of his earlier singles! The album's got a really unified feel overall – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo Santamaria

Watermelon Man!
Battle, 1962. Very Good+
A seminal moment in the career of Mongo Santamaria – and probably the first record to show that he was destined for greatness! As you might guess from the title, the set features Mongo's key recording of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man" – served up here in a sharp-edged ... LP, Vinyl record album

King, 1967. Good
Raw soul, indeed – a term that could have been coined for James Brown's vocal approach, and which probably makes one of its first appearances here on a record! The album's kind of a grab bag of earlier sides that James recorded for King, but it's a perfect showcase for his amazing sound in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eloise
ABC, 1977. Near Mint-

Eloise's vocals are really wonderful here, exuding warmth something of relaxed approach to her singing that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Urbie Green

Fox
CTI, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Smooth and silky jazz funk from trombonist Urbie Green – a record that's much more in a mainstream R&B fusion mode than his earlier work – yet also arranged by David Matthews in a soulful style that still keeps things pretty real on the best cuts! The group's a good one for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
