Singing Cha Cha Cha

LP (Item 734119) Kapp, 1961 — Condition: Very Good

An obscure Latin set on Kapp – with Horace Diaz and Los Amigos – a group with a nice touch of jaz! Titles include "Kissproof Lips", "Oh Johnny Oh Johnny Oh", "Take It Easy", "Charley My Boy", "Watermelon Heart", and "I Want A Guy Who Can Dance Me The Cha Cha Cha".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Patato & Totico

Patato & Totico
Verve, 1968. Very Good
A really unique little 60s Latin session from Verve – recorded with a surprisingly stripped-down feel that you wouldn't expect from the label, given that they mostly went for a groovier pop-Latin approach at the time! Percussionists Patato Valdez and Totico join with Arsenio Rodriguez, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1967. Near Mint-
An early classic from vocalist Jimmy Sabater – one of the greatest singers of the New York scene, and a vocalist who was equally talented with both English and Spanish lyrics!

Tito Puente

Mucho Cha Cha
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Mucho cha cha here – the reigning rhythm on the New York Latin scene at the end of the 50s – played by Tito Puente and group with some nicely jazzy styles!

Tres De Cafe Y Dos De Azucar
Fania, 1973. Very Good
One of the last albums from the team of Johnny Pacheco and Pete El Conde Rodriguez – and one of the best, too!

Rumba, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Killer sounds from Cortjio and his classic combo – a group who really helped to redefine the sound of Latin music in the 60s!

Perfect Angel
Epic, 1974. Very Good+
Minnie Riperton's first album for Epic – and the record that broke her from a hip Chicago underground artist into one of the seventies' biggest female soul stars!

James Brown

Hot
Polydor, 1975. Very Good+
One of the lesser-known albums from the mid 70's, and one that includes a mix of remakes of old stuff, and some faster tracks that seem to be aimed at the dancefloor. Dave Matthews arranged a number of tracks, including "Hot", "So Long", and "(I Love You) For Sentimental ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista, 1975. Very Good+
A strong 70s set from Linda Lewis – her first for Arista, and a date that has her picking up a fuller style than before! The arrangements here are by Bert DeCoteaux, who brings in plenty of soul – and Linda's working in modes that run from the simple, personal style of her Warner years ... LP, Vinyl record album
