Amore Cha Cha & Merengue

LP (Item 564668) Roper, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
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.

Tito Rodriguez Hits
United Artists, Early 60s. Very Good+
An overstuffed album that features 15 of Tito's Latin groovers for United Artists – not necessarily "hits" in the chart-bound way, but all of them solid senders for the Latin audience of the early 60s. Titles include "Penasa En Mi", "Cara De Payso", "Machaca ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Barretto

Eye Of The Beholder
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! The album's a crossover gem that has Ray working with Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder of The Crusaders – a trio who produced the record, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1962. Near Mint-
A really killer set from Joe Quijano – one of the most overlooked leaders of the early 60s, and a tremendous talent on these early Columbia albums! The album's got a raw, highly percussive groove – one that goes way past the simple pachanga groove of the time, and which bristles with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Goin' Down Slow
Prestige, 1972. Very Good-
Sonny Stitt's going down slow here – hitting a groove that's a bit more laidback than some of his funkier albums for Prestige, but one that's still pretty darn great overall! The sound is almost in a Stanley Turrentine mode at CTI – with fuller arrangements behind his saxophone solos, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rinder & Lewis

Seven Deadly Sins
AVI, 1977. Very Good
A wonderful space disco classic from the years before house music – and a record that's gone on to have a huge influence on generations of dancefloors over the years! The duo of Rinder & Lewis did a number of other projects for the AVI label back in the 70s, but this one may well be ... LP, Vinyl record album
