Cugat Plays Continental Hits

LP (Item 610865) Mercury, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

(Nice F:35d "Perfect Presence Sound" pressing.)

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.

Xavier Cugat Today!
Decca, Late 60s. Very Good+
Very groovy stuff from Cugie! It's the late 60s, and he's got more of a pop Latin groove than earlier – and lays down some nice peppy covers of pop material, plus a few other Latin standards. Not exactly Latin soul – but not that far off, either. Includes a great version of "Samb ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pacheco

Latin Jam
Fania, 1965. Near Mint-
The title's no lie, since this is one of Pacheco's hardest swinging Latin jazz albums! The record's got a number of nice long tracks played by a very tight band, and it features loads of Pacheco's jazzy flute work on tracks like "Latin Gravy", "Asi Son Bonco", "Sugar Frost ...

Ray Barretto

Guajira Y Guaguanco
Tico, 1964. Good
An early stunner from Ray Barretto – and an album that really has the percussionist coming into his own! There's only a bit of a trace of more popular Latin modes on this set – as Ray really takes off in this new territory of bold rhythms, dark inflections, and jazzy touches that ...

Orquesta Aragon

Me Voy Para La Luna
Musart, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Orquesta Aragon's set to hit the moon on this one – posed on the cover in front of a cheesy rocket ship, bags packed, and instruments ready to go. The album's one of the group's more obscure ones, but it features plenty of prime mid 60s jamming, and a set list that includes "Aladino" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Palmieri and the Coco label were a team that couldn't be beat – and this beautiful album is complete proof of that fact!
