Dilo (Ugh!)

LP (Item 40543) RCA, 1958 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


The title says "ugh!" and there's lots of that in this record! Perez plays in that tight hard way that he used on his best 50s recordings, making his trademark grunt of "ugh!" as the songs change rhythms – in a style that the notes describe as "the only vocal baton in music." Titles include "Patricia", "Why Wait", "Cuban Rock", "Lonely", "Bandido", and "Cose Cose Cose". (Original black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has a split top seam.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Evolution
Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Malo may be evolving a bit, but they're still right in the pocket as far as we're concerned! This excellent west coast Latin ensemble mixes together jazz, funk, soul, and slight touches of Chicano rock – into a heavy groove that was one of the best-conceived at the time. Jorge Santana lays ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ascencion
Warner, 1974. Very Good
This one's a bit tighter than some of the group's earlier albums – but still equally funky, and still very nice! Malo are at the top of their form here – grooving hard with great guitar from Jorge Santana, tight congas from Francisco Aquabella, sweet organ from Ron De Masi, and great ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cook, Early 50s. Very Good-
A nice little session of Latin jazz – percussive at the bottom, but with an overall jazz mambo feel that's similar to early 50s work by Chico O'Farrill. Tracks are shortish, but have some nice solos by unnamed players – and titles include "Hi Fi Mambo", "Mambo A La ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rough Guide, Late 60s/Early 70s/2015. Sealed
Heavy Latin grooves – served up with plenty of funk, jazz, and soul in the mix – and put together as a collection that's even better than the first volume in this series! DJ Pablo Yglesias seems to get sharper ears each time we tune into one of his projects – and this time around ... LP, Vinyl record album
Irakere
Columbia, 1979. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
Nice stuff from Willie – maybe not as hard and funky as his early 70s work, but very nice in kind of a Latin Club mode, thanks to some great production by Wayne Henderson! Includes his classic take on "Always There" – which is a great dancefloor jazz jammer – plus ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feelin' Alright
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good
One of Mongo's biggest records of the early 70s – and an important early side for Atlantic Records! Moving to Atlantic from Columbia, Mongo hipped things up even more – picking up on important trends in soul, rock, and the Latin underground of the time. Atlantic gave Mongo the freedom ...

Con Todos Los Hierros
Tico, Late 60s. Very Good
"Everything But The Kitchen Sink" – or so says the title of this groover! But who needs the kitchen sink, when you've got the great vocals of Ismael Rivera, backed by the lively band of Cortijo? Rivera and Cortijo are always a good combination – and this album's one of their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fluta Nova
Tico, Early 60s. Very Good
A great lost album of Latin jazz – played by legendary flautist Mauricio Smith! Smith only cut a few records under his own name – all of them great – and this early 60s album definitely has the flute player riding high on the charanga wave, but also hitting some great notes of ...
