Mambo En Sax

LP (Item 6037) RCA (Mexico), Mid 50s — Condition: Near Mint-
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


A rare Mexican album from Perez Prado – nicely cooking, with a really sharp edge, and plenty of the saxes promised in the title! Includes "Mambo a la Kenton", "Mambo en Sax", and "Mambo No. 8".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Later Colombian pressing. Cover has light surface wear and is slightly wavy.)

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.

Twist Goes Latin
RCA, 1962. Very Good+
Perez was always willing to alter his groove to fit the times and the mood – and this set is one of his first forays into the groovier sound that would dominate most of his 60s work for other labels. The core sound is still in that "ugh!" mode of earlier RCA sides, but there's also ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1958. Very Good
A great little record – and a prime example of the strong Jewish/Latin crossover that was going on in the late 50s and early 60s. The record features the kind of crack cha cha sound that was bringing couples into the Palladium from Long Island, but it's also touched with occasional yiddish ... LP, Vinyl record album
