Al Escobar

CD (Item 801443) Alma, Late 60s — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...

CD

Killer Latin soul from the great Al Escobar – maybe not one of the bigger names of the boogaloo generation, but certainly one of the best! The CD starts with work from Al's Modern Sounds album – a massive groover all the way through – filled with tight, choppy, soul-drenched sounds that easily rival the best from Joe Cuba or Ricardo Ray – with a similar blend of English and Spanish lyrics that really keeps things interesting! The instrumentation is superb – very sharp rhythms that almost veer towards funky at times – topped with great jazzy touches on horns, and some especially great lyrics on the English tunes. Titles include the massive original "Ape Walk" – plus great versions of "Tighten Up" and "The Horse", a medley of "Judy In Disguise/Chain Of Fools/Black Is Black", and the cuts "Mi Guajira", "Dejame Ya", and "Wave". Other tracks are from earlier vintage – more an early 60s Latin mode – but still pretty darn great, and titles include "Palm Springs Mambo", "Johnny's Special", "Oye Nicanor", "Lenny's Mambo", and "No Encuentro Palabras".  © 1996-2019, 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.
