Tipica 73 Orchestra – Tipica 73 Vol 2

LP (Item 473934) Inca, 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

Tipica 73 at their early best – filled with life, fire, and imagination – a mighty approach that tries to grab up many different Latin styles at once, and which makes most of them come out pretty darn great! There's a nice return to tradition on most tunes here – but the approach differs slightly from track to track – sometimes very back to basics, sometimes filled with the looser, more expressive modes of the times. Adalberto Santiago is on vocals on most numbers – and instrumentation includes piano from Sonny Bravo and tres from Nelson Gonzalez. Titles include the excellent "Watergate" – about the closest the group ever came to cutting a Latin funk number – plus "Amalia Batista", "Carahuico", "Asi No Se Quiere A Nadie", "A Mi Que", and "Where Is The Love".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Vinyl is in great shape, but cover has some surface wear on front and a number of drip stains on back.)

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.

Mr Bongo
Clarion, Early 60s. Very Good+
A rare bit of Latin jazz from this mighty percussionist – the man also known to the world as Mr Bongo!

Tico, Late 50s. Very Good+
There's been more than a few excellent Latin sets based upon the work of Irving Berlin – but this album may well be the finest! Machito's in top top form here, working in that late 50s heavy-jazz mode that we treasure from some of his best Tico/Roulette albums – and the all-instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Why Not Cha Cha Cha?
Imperial, Late 50s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1958. Very Good
By the end of the 50s, Machito was a king of the Latin scene – and had an ability to both groove hard, and lay down sophisticated arrangements that were a lot stronger than those of other throwaway cha cha cha groups. This album's one of his best from the era – and it includes lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Bobo

Feelin' So Good
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good
One of the Verve albums that focuses on Willie Bobo's talents as a singer – still very much in the tight Latin Soul style of Willie's other work from the time, but with more vocals on the tracks – done in Willie's rough-styled soulful mode! Includes the groovers "Feelin' So ... LP, Vinyl record album

Irakere

Irakere 2
Columbia, 1980. Very Good
The second Columbia album for this amazing Cuban combo – and a record that really helped get the talents of Irakere a lot of overdue exposure here in the US! The record's surprisingly tight – especially for a major label effort of the time – really committed to the deepest sides ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Boss Is Back!
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
In "back", the title is pointing to the fact that Gene Ammons is back on the scene, after being released from 7 years of a tragic 15 year narcotics sentence in prison. The album marks a proud return for Jug – who'd not recorded since a very successful flurry of sides recorded in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clarke Boland Big Band

Latin Kaleidoscope (US pressing)
MPS/Prestige, 1968. Very Good+
One of the greatest records ever by this hip jazz ensemble – and one of their most unique! The record has the band grooving hard through two incredible suites of Latin music – Gary McFarland's "Latin Kaleidoscope" and Francy Boland's "Cuban Fever" – each of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Complete Yusef Lateef
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint-
A soulful late 60s outing for Brother Yusef – one of his first, and one of his best, albums for Atlantic! Despite the misleading title, this isn't really the "complete" Yusef Lateef (it would have to be a 50 LP set for that!) – but the record is a nice slice of Yusef's ... LP, Vinyl record album
