Eddie Palmieri

LP (Item 7392) Barbaro, 1981 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


One of the most sophisticated sessions by Eddie Palmieri from the time – and one of the most deeply emotive as well! Alongside the creative piano and jazz-bases sensibility you'd expect from Eddie, the album's also got a set of fuller arrangements as well – orchestrations that build some richer colors, complicated tones, and a shifting set of musical images that really make for one of the most memorable Palmieri albums of the 80s – despite a rather cheap-looking cover. Arrangements are by Rene Hernandez and Francisco Zumaque – and the album features great contributions from Victor Paz on trumpet and Barry Rogers on trombone – as well as vocals from Ismael Quintana and Cheo Feliciano. Tracks are longish, and titles include ""Paginas De Mujer", "No Me Hagas Sufrir", "Ritmo Alegre", "Ven Ven", and "El Dia Que Me Quieras".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
