An excellent set by Latin percussionist Milton Cardona – very rootsy, with a spare Afro Cuban sound that reminds us a bit of the Grupo Folklorico y Experimental, although perhaps stripped down even more. Much of the album features Cardona's percussion group working through songs dedicated to Lucumi and Santerian Orishas – and titles include "Chango", "Elengua", "Ogun", "Yemaya", and "Babalu Aye". (Includes the printed inner sleeve.)  © 1996-2016, 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.

Coco, 1974. Very Good
A seminal bit of 70s Latin from Eddie Palmieri – a rull, rich session that really earns its "sun" title! Eddie's working here in that complicated approach to jazzy rhythms from the later Tico years – inflected by a bit of straighter salsa rhythms – in a style that ... LP, Vinyl record album
