(Cover has a partially split spine.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Santero – Cuban Cult Music
Panart, Early 60s. Very Good+
A very haunting set of Santeria tracks, recorded for the Panart label with vocals by Celia Cruz, Mercedes Valdes, and the singers of Obdulio Morales. We're not sure who does the backing, but the sound is nice and spooky, and the album has a very nice dark rootsy sound to it. Titles include "E ... LP, Vinyl record album
Comparsas Cubanas
Gema, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A beautiful rootsy session of Afro-Cuban grooves! Justi Barreto's group has a distinct folkloric tone – and they were working years before the legendary Grupo Folklorico y Experimental, but with the same sound. The overall feel is very percussive, with bold trumpet solos over the top, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Happy Together
Fantasy, 1978. Very Good
Tight and soulful grooves from the team of Pete and Sheila Escovedo – a set that still has elements of the pair's Latin roots, but which also explodes in a flurry of funk, soul, and fusion moments too! As with their first Fantasy album, the duo have Billy Cobham on deck to produce – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pops & Prado
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Perez turns his popular Latin sound to some even more popular 50s compositions – and even if it's not enough to swing the kids at the jukebox on the cover of the record, there's still some nice lively Latiny moments. Titles include "Isle Of Capri", "Three Little Words", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1964. Sealed
A supremely rare Latin side on Prestige – featuring congolero Montego Joe, who was the guiding force behind the Har-You Percussion Ensemble, and so many other great groups. The album's a striking batch of tracks that perfectly illustrate how strongly the New York Latin scene was at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Concord/Picante, 1987. Near Mint-
Tight, hard and straight ahead Latin jazz from one of the greats of the 80s! Poncho's work on Concord/Picante is always a treat – and this record's a very nice batch of no-nonsense Latin jazz tracks, played with strong arrangements, and a sweet west coast vibe. Titles include "Co Co My ... LP, Vinyl record album
That Latin Beat
RCA, Mid 50s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Vaya, 1980. Very Good
One of Mongo's good electric Latin fusion LPs for Vaya, and a nice batch of tracks with a good groove to them, and a nice jazzy feel. There's some nice electric piano moments, and the band grooves nicely on cuts like "TV", "Images", "Havana", and "Mucho Mas". LP, Vinyl record album
El Rebelde
Top Hits, 1975. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Eye Of The Beholder
Atlantic/Fania, 1977. Very Good
A really wonderful album from Ray Barretto – more jazz fusion than his usual 70s salsa – but in a way that we really really love! The album's a crossover gem that has Ray working with Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wilton Felder of The Crusaders – a trio who produced the record, ... LP, Vinyl record album
El Sondido, 1976. Near Mint- (reissue)
There's a tornado on the cover, and a tornado in the grooves as well – as the mighty Ocho step off their first three albums for UA Latino, and move into even headier territory here on the El Sonido label! The group are really at the top of their game – effortlessly blending jazzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sun Of Latin Music
Coco, 1974. Very Good
A seminal bit of 70s Latin from Eddie Palmieri – a rull, rich session that really earns its "sun" title! Eddie's working here in that complicated approach to jazzy rhythms from the later Tico years – inflected by a bit of straighter salsa rhythms – in a style that ... LP, Vinyl record album
