La Perfecta Vol 2 – El Molestoso

CD (Item 664232) Alegre, Early 60s — Condition: Used
$12.99 ...


One of Eddie's early gems with his La Perfecta group – a hard-hitting ensemble with a sound that encompassed the charanga era, yet which also pointed the way towards many styles past it. Eddie's strong piano is a very big part of the group's success – jazzing things up at the right moments, and adding in some blue tones that pitch the whole album slightly to the left – but the rest of the players are equally skilled, and the remarkable thing about the record is how well it comes off as a full team effort. Lead vocals are by Ismael Quintana, and titles include"El Molestoso", "Sabroso Guaguanco", "Yo Sin Ti", "No Critiques", "Asi Es La Humanidad", and "En Cadenas".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Alegre, Early 60s. Used
A landmark album that shaped Latin jazz for years to come! The format of the set borrows heavily from the previous Cuban Jam Session LPs, but gives it a real New York twist that made the Alegre albums much stronger overall – and much more influential in a wider spectrum. A core group fo ... CD

Fania, 1988. Used
Don't let the cheesy 80s cover of this album put you off, because the album's got a classic Fania All-Stars groove all the way through – and is quite possibly one of the last great sessions by the combo! The title cut "Bamboleo" is the group's great version of the Gypsy Kings hit ... CD
