Primitivo

LP (Item 4914) Roost, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good+

One of the best New York recordings made by Arsenio Rodriguez! The record has a strong rootsy feel, which lest Arsenio's hard raw sound come out nice and clear – and the overall approach is a good mix of traditional sounds and more modern production, which is a nice thing if you've ever been a bit disappointed by the quality of some of Arsenio's recordings of an older vintage. Tracks include "La Paison", "Fiesta En El Solar", "Guaguanco de Puerta Terra", "Rumba Guajira", and "Que Mala Suerte".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label stereo Royal Roost pressing with Audio Matrix stamp. Cover has some wear and aging.)

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.

Wonderful work from Little Anthony – and a great update to his smooth 60s harmony sound with The Imperials!
