Con Salsa Y Sabor

LP (Item 494648) Cotique/Fania, 1977 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A late date for the Cotique label – but a cooker of a set from the time when the imprint was one of the standout sources for salsa on the New York scene! Charlie Palmieri's united here with legendary Panamanian singer Menique – in a batch of tracks that has all the lively energy of Charlie's better-known albums from the 70s, but which is much more obscure overall! Charlie produced, and plays piano and a bit of percussion – and all lead vocals are by Menique, often with a slightly playful feel that clearly reflects the joy he and Charlie had in the studio putting the set together. Other players include Roy Roman and Lou Laurita on trumpets, Keith O'Quinn and Tom Malone on trombone, and Bobby Nelson on saxes – and titles include "Con Salsa Y Sabor", "El Amante", "Mi Tierra Lejana", "De Panama A Borinquen", "Tributo A Pedro Flores", and "Remordimiento". (Cover has light wear, small seam splits, and a sticker on back.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Atlantic/Fania, 1977. Very Good
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love!

Latin Percussion Ventures, 1977. Near Mint-
This one's really living up to the "down to basics" in its title – as the record really just features spare percussion jams, mixed with a bit of electric piano – a really cool blend that's unlike anything else we can think of! The session features spoken introductions to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vaya, 1980. Very Good
One of Mongo's good electric Latin fusion LPs for Vaya, and a nice batch of tracks with a good groove to them, and a nice jazzy feel. There's some nice electric piano moments, and the band grooves nicely on cuts like "TV", "Images", "Havana", and "Mucho Mas". LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Essential grooves from Tito Puente – a really unique record for the time, and a set that's only grown in power over the years!
