Going Loco – Pete Terrace Plays Joe Loco Arrangements

LP (Item 732941) Fantasy, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good-

Classic 50s Latin from the Pete Terrace Quintet – working here with Joe Loco arrangements of "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White", "April In Paris", "Pete Mambos On The Terrace", and "Loco Chris".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Heavy red vinyl pressing with maroon label and deep groove. Cover has light wear and some aging.)

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.

Tico, Late 50s. Good+
One of the greatest albums ever recorded by vibist Pete Terrace – a mellow set of Latin tracks with a dreamy late nite feel! The percussion is slow but hard, clocking out some moody rhythms that are a perfect foil for Pete's hard and chromatic touch on the vibes. Tracks include "Speak ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tito Puente

El Rey
Picante/Concord, 1984. Near Mint-
80s work from Tito – but very nicely grooving, with a small combo that has a nice jazzy finish, and lots of strong west coast Latin work from the likes of players like Francisco Aguabella, Jorge Dalto, Jose Madera, and Johnny Rodriguez. The set was recorded live in SF – and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hector Lavoe

Fania, 1978. Near Mint-
A hokey cover but a really classic album from Hector Lavoe – one of his biggest records of the 70s, and a great mix of modes that showcases the full range of his talents! The standout number here is the 10 minute groover "El Cantate" – a driving salsa tune penned by Ruben ... LP, Vinyl record album


Warner, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first!

La Voz
Fania, 1975. Near Mint-
A classic bit of 70s salsa gold from vocalist Hector Lavoe – a record done in close collaboration with Willie Colon, with whom Lavoe had worked on a great run of albums during the late 60s and early 70s! The set's got a slightly warmer and more straightforward feel than some of Willie's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fania, 1979. Near Mint-
A tribute to the famous romantic singer Felipe Pierela – once known as the Bolero Star Of The Americas!

Cugat Caricatures
Mercury, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Silly title – but a great album, with Cugie playing relatively straight Latin versions of 60s pop hits. A few of the tunes are a bit silly, but there's less of the goofiness that "caricatures" might imply. Titles include "Papa Loves Mambo", "Night Train", " ... LP, Vinyl record album
