Pacheco Y Su Charanga – By Popular Demand

LP (Item 3654) Fania, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

One of Pacheco's last charanga albums – with an expansion of the sound considerably from the earlier years, moving into territory that sounds even groovier than before! The album's got a great instrumental version of "Sunshine Superman", done in a Latin Soul pachanga mode – plus the tracks "Bilongo", "Mi Carreta", "Suaviloo", and "El Jardinero".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Venezuelan pressing with sunset labels.)

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.

Hard Hands
Fania, 1972. Very Good
Killer stuff all around! This album's a monster – one of Ray's greatest, with the same sort of Latin Soul groove heard famously on his classic LP Acid.
