Amore Cha Cha & Merengue

LP (Item 564668) Roper, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 11.99
One of the obscure Latin sets on the Roper label – originally done for dance instruction, but pretty great overall – with one side of cha cha tracks, the other of merengue!  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Ruben Blades

Bohemio Y Poeta
Fania, Mid 70s. Very Good
A collection of important early work by Ruben Blades – and easily one of the best examples of his tremendous talents in the 70s! The title is very well put, as Blades is both poet and bohemian on the record – hitting themes that are both personal and political in a way that other Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1978. Very Good
A hokey cover but a really classic album from Hector Lavoe – one of his biggest records of the 70s, and a great mix of modes that showcases the full range of his talents!

In The Mood
Columbia, 1979. Very Good
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... LP, Vinyl record album

How Will I Remember You?
Discovery, 1977. Very Good
A great album from the late 70's, featuring the excellent jazz vocalist backed by a totally tight group led by Gildo Mahones. The sound is deep and loud, and there's some nice phat bass on here, particularly on the intro to "Baltimore Oriole", which has a nice break sound at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Impulse, 1961. Very Good Gatefold
Quite a different album than usual for John Coltrane, but a classic one too – and a set that has the great one exploring his ideas in a set of longer tracks recorded with an expanded jazz orchestra! The format's hardly the mainstream big band of the time – as Coltrane's filled the ... LP, Vinyl record album
