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.

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

Steppin' Out
Seeco, Early 60s. Very Good+
Seminal early work from the legendary Joe Cuba – highly percussive Latin tracks, served up in a small combo mode that really helped pave the way for the Latin Soul generation!

Fania, 1972. Very Good+
Fantastic stuff from Ray Barretto – and one of his most sophisticated albums of the 70s! The album mixes together rootsy percussion and smoother jazzy arrangements – in a manner that keeps things fresh at all points, and which shifts the focus nicely from track to track – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cotique, 1975. Very Good
Nice "best of" set of work by this excellent Latin combo – featuring tracks that are mostly pulled from the years when they were changing their bag from Latin Soul into 70s salsa. The album's got a cool cartoony basketball cover – and tracks include "Son Sabroson", ... LP, Vinyl record album
