LP (Item 585528) Tico, Late 50s/Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

Lots of Tico Records classics – work by Pete Terrace, Tito Puente, Joe Loco, La Playa Sextet, Machito, and Tito Rodriguez!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear, and a bit of tape on the top seam.)

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.

Gilberto Sextet

Yes, I Will
Tico, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A very soulful outing by this obscure Latin soul group! The record mixes heavy soul and Latin styles – with a much deeper feel than your average boogaloo album, and kind of a righteous vibe that you wouldn't expect on a Fania album from the time. The title cut – "Yes I Will" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1956. Very Good-
Very early merengue sounds from Ricardo Rico – served up with an earthy blend that really gets to the root of the genre! The tracks often feature strong percussion alongside these really bouncing basslines – but acoustic ones, without the too-heavy style of more contemporary merengue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tico, Mid 60s. Very Good-
The Soul of Spanish Harlem – and the upbeat sound of the Joe Cuba Sextet – a hard-to-find album recorded just before the dawn of the classic Latin soul era! This one has been underappreciated for years, which is a shame, because it's got a lot of very nice grooves with that tight Joe ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Early 70s. Very Good+
US issue of a set of vocal tracks that this Latin diva recorded in Madrid, with arrangements by Javier Vazquez and Osvaldo Estivill. Titles include "Estando Contigo", "Camina Y Ven", "El Malo", "Me Vas A Recordar", and "I Have Been Here". LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1968. Very Good
Two sides of La Lupe – one relaxed, the other a bit more formal – both presented in an album that's sort of half Latin Soul and half boleros – but with some other elements thrown in for good measure too! Side one is our favorite – as it's got Lupe picking up some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Barretto

Charanga Moderna
Tico, 1962. Very Good+
Stellar Latin grooves! This album is one of Ray's best from the early 60s, and it's an incredible batch of edgey tracks that far outshines most of his other work from the time! For the record, Ray took the standard Charanga format, and updated it by adding sweet jazzy touches, pushing the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Costanzo

Latin Fever
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the greatest albums of Latin Jazz ever recorded on the west coast during the 50s – and a landmark session from Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo! The album well earns its "fever" claim – as the set smokes from the very first note – Jack's bongos calling the pace ... LP, Vinyl record album
