Fiesta Con El Conde

LP (Item 576300) Fania, 1982 — Condition: Very Good+

Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez was always one of the richest voices to sing on the New York Latin scene in the 70s – a talent with this way of going deep, and really stretching out his notes – but at a level that was quite different than so many other singers of his generation! Pete's approach is never overdone, nor filled with flowery touches – but has this magnificent flow that gives his music this really lasting appeal – even on an early 80s album like this, which other folks might overlook. There's a really classic vibe throughout, thanks to arrangements from Jose Febles – and titles include "Fiesta En El Barrio", "Tu Rumba", "Pastorcillo", "Tristeza", "Punto Bare", and "Quincalla".  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Los Compadres
Fania, 1972. Very Good-
About as tight as you can get from the team of Pacheco and vocalist Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez – a record cut after a strong run of sides from Pacheco's Nuevo Tumbao, a finely-honed unit that moved with supple grace few other groups could match!

Latin Connection
Fania, 1981. Very Good
A full-on set from the mighty Fania All-Stars – a session that matches some of the larger arrangements of their Columbia Records albums, but which also returns the group to more of a salsa-focused groove!

Aqui Se Puede
Fania, 1987. Near Mint-
Ray Barretto's peeking out from behind a door on the cover of this album – and the image is a great illustration of the general feel of the album!

Cheo
Fania, Mid 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wonderful mid 70s comeback from singer Cheo Feliciano – a set that still holds onto the soul of earlier years, but which also has a few wonderful touches of jazz in the mix! Arrangements here are by Bobby Valentin and Nick Jimenez, and they're played by a small combo that includes some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Los Amigos
Fania, 1979. Very Good
A nice mix of 70s salsa and more traditional themes – part of the ever-evolving Pacheco sound during the great years of Fania, served up here with richly-ranged vocals from Hector Casanova! Casanova seems to push things a bit more than Pete El Conde Rodriguez did with Pacheco before – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Love Story
Fania, 1971. Near Mint-

Dos
Warner, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first! The group are really in top form here – taking off with Santana-inspired riffs that are filled with heavy percussion, soaring organ, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bobo Motion
Verve, 1967. Very Good
Bobo Motion is groovy motion – heard here on one of Willie's best albums for Verve from the late 60s – a really unique blend of jazz, Latin, and soul-based rhythms! The set's even tighter than some of Willie's other Verve records – and like the classic Uno Dos Tres, it's got some ... LP, Vinyl record album
