Easy To Dance Cha Cha Cha – Recorded In Cuba

LP (Item 547412) Tico, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging, clear tape holding the top seam, and some light stains on back.)

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.

Ray Barretto

Eye Of The Beholder
Atlantic/Fania, 1977. Near Mint-
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love!

Perez Prado

Havana 3 AM
RCA, 1956. Very Good-
A real Latin standard of the 50s – packaged with a title and a cover that perfectly evoke the lure of pre-Castro Cuba at its best – and played by Perez Prado with a style that's more open and flowing than some of his earlier singles! The album's got a really unified feel overall – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Cano

Taste Of Cano
GNP/Crescendo, Late 50s. Very Good-
Excellent stuff! Although Eddie Cano cut a lot of pop-Latin piano records, this hard jazzy groover is a firey bunch of instrumentals that stands as one of his best records ever! The set's got a tight west coast group that includes a tight trumpet frontline, plus timbales, bass, and congas – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dock Of The Bay
Harmony/Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
Smoking Latin soul from Mongo! This one's issued on Harmony, the budget label of Columbia – and we're never sure if it's an exclusive album, or a collection of tunes from other Mongo sides on Columbia. Who cares, though? The music's so tasty, and the grooves are so heavy, we can never get ... LP, Vinyl record album

A killer album from Mongo Santamaria's classic 60s run for Columbia – and a record that also features some wonderful alto work from a young Sonny Fortune!
