Joe Bataan II

LP (Item 4835) Salsoul, 1981 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the sweeeeet club groovers recorded by Joe Bataan in the the early 80s – and an album that has a bit more of a disco feel than before, but which still stays firmly in the Latinized Salsoul sound that Bataan helped to forge and name! Joe's vocals are great – still honest and with a lot of integrity, and filled with the themes of confused love and identity that have always made his records some of the best of the New York scene. There's some nice electro touches amidst the grooves – but not too many – and titles include "Mestizo II", "Super Girl", "When We Get Married", and "Ling Ching Tong".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Mongo Santamaria

Explosion
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+
Great stuff by Mongo – originally issued under another name during the early 60s, but presented here with a new cover in this late 60s reissue. The tracks are all hard, short, and jazzy – with that solid groove that Mongo brought to Latin music during the 60s. Players include Hubert ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tropical, Early 60s. Very Good
Nice lively early work from Cortijo – and most tracks have an uptempo dance groove to them! There's a mix of merengue and bomba styles here, and vocals are by Ismael Rivera and Nelson Pinedo. Titles include "El Yoyo", "Las Ingratitudes", "Saoco", "Zuembador ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nice bit of rockin' funky soul by a band that we know little about, but who seem to be an LA rock band that's obsessed with soul music. The LP contains a great 11 minute version of "Cold Sweat", played with a lot of funky vamping by the band in a JB's style. There's also a nice version ... LP, Vinyl record album

Curtom, 1978. Very Good+
Fantastic stuff – and one of the greatest albums ever by Chicago soul maestro Leroy Hutson!

20th Century, 1973. Very Good+
A beautiful swirling instrumental LP that features the classic "Love's Theme", the cut that made Barry a multi-millionaire, and which firmly established his sophisticated orchestral soul style as one of the trademarks of the 70s! This is the ultimate in 70s soul class – from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
