Charangueando Con La Tipica 73

LP (Item 44353) Fania, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Killer new charanga work from Tipica 73 – a record issued a bit later on their run for Fania, but filled with wonderful tunes that get at all the traditional energy of the group! Tracks here are loose and free, really in the spirit of the jam session mode that first produced the group – referenced by producer/arranger Sonny Bravo in the liner notes, and followed through beautifully by a lineup that includes Jose Alberto on vocals, Rene Lopez on trumpet, Dick Meza on tenor sax and flute, Alfredo De La Fe on violin, Jose Grajales on the congas and Mario Rivera on baritone sax. Titles include "Busco Una Chiquita", "Adonde Vas", "Cachita", "Yo No Camino Mas", "Tunas", "Chanchullo", "Galletana", and "Comparsas".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sunrise label pressing.)

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.
