Concierto Para Bongo

LP (Item 50155) United Artists, 1967 — Condition: Very Good

A wonderfully wild set from the great Perez Prado – and a set with some very cool rockish elements in the mix! The album's got some twangy guitar and mod organ lines – but also has that sort of romping rhythm approach you'd expect from Prado's earlier records – really recast here in a cool 60s groove! Perez shouts out with his "ugh!" exclamation on some numbers – urging on the tight, playful instrumentation even further – and in a way, the whole thing's got a feel that's almost like the garagey Latin vibe of the shing-a-ling generation. The one exception to this is the great extended title cut – "Concierta Para Bongo" – which has a rich, exotic feel that's completely sublime – and other titles include "A Go Go", "Mamma A Go Go", "Estoy Acabando", "Claudia", and "Fantasia".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

One of the best entries in RCA's classic "our man in..." series – and a nice one by Perez that has him breaking the format of his other releases for the label. In this one, he hits a lot of more modern grooves than on his 50's work – and he also introduces the "bongoson&q ... LP, Vinyl record album
