Merengue By Cugat

LP (Item 585565) Columbia, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

A nice shift in style for Cugat – some very unusual rhythms!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s CBS International pressing in a yellow border cover.)

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.

Chile Con Cugie
RCA, 1959. Very Good+
Xavier Cugat turns his hit Latin sound to tunes from Mexico – working his way through medleys of traditional tunes, all given a late 50s zip, plus shorter numbers that work equally well in his choppy, percussive style. Titles include "Cielito Lindo", "Ay Jalisco No Te ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Cugie turns his classic Latin sound to a number of older compositions from films – like "Moon River", "High Noon", "La Dolce Vita", "Guns Of Navarone", "Al Di La", and "Flying Down To Rio". Not entirely a classic Latin session, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cugi's Cocktails
Mercury, 1963. Very Good+
Cugat and cocktails – what could be better? The set's a bit later than Xavier Cugat's classic vintage – but in a really nice way, one that has him opening up with some groovy 60s rhythms! The style is still heavily Latin, but there's also some nice influences from bossa nova and some ... LP, Vinyl record album

A set recorded by RCA in 1958 – featuring a few new numbers, plus a number of classics, redone by Cugie in a nice jazzy style that we like better than his earlier work! Sid Ramin did a few arrangements for the record – and titles include "Mambo No 5", "Baia", "G ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mongo Santamaria at the height of his Latin Soul years – working on a cool Columbia session titled after an earlier hit, but served up with his new lean sound of the late 60s!

Mongomania
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
Killer Latin soul from Mongo, and a great batch of original tracks, played by a groovy little combo that includes Bobby Capers on alto, Ray Maldonado on trumpet, and a young Hubert Laws on flute, who also did some of the arrangements! The sound is hard, tight, and jazzy – with the kind of ... LP, Vinyl record album
