El Dulce Aroma Del Exito

LP (Item 699253) Fania, 1980 — Condition: Very Good+

Features arrangements from Luis Cruz, Louie Ramirez, Marty Sheller, and Charlie Palmieri!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mexican pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Tribute To Arsenio Rodriguez
Fania, 1972. Very Good-
A gem of a record from Orchestra Harlow – a set that's a tribute to Cuban music great Arsenio Rodriguez, and one that has the group hitting some much rootsier modes than before!

Ray Barretto

Rican/Struction
Fania, 1979. Very Good+
A great album of salsa tracks recorded at the end of the 70s – when Ray was returning to the scene after a prolonged hand injury kept him out of music for a while. Despite this time off, though, Ray's in top top form – coming back to basics with a really heavy groove, picking up right ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Barretto

Hard Hands
Fania, 1972. Very Good
Killer stuff all around! This album's a monster – one of Ray's greatest, with the same sort of Latin Soul groove heard famously on his classic LP Acid.

Metiendo Mano
Fania, 1977. Very Good
Willie Colon declares Ruben Blades as the champ on the cover of this early solo set – and for good reason too, as the album's one of Blades' best!

Fania, 1980. Near Mint-
Killer new charanga work from Tipica 73 – a record issued a bit later on their run for Fania, but filled with wonderful tunes that get at all the traditional energy of the group! Tracks here are loose and free, really in the spirit of the jam session mode that first produced the group – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fania, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of Pacheco's last charanga albums – with an expansion of the sound considerably from the earlier years, moving into territory that sounds even groovier than before!
