Epoca de Oro De Johnny Albino Y Su Original Trio San Juan – Vol 9

LP (Item 822205) Verne (Puerto Rico), Early 60s — Condition: Very Good-

(White label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a name in marker on back.)

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.

Mongo Santamaria

Fantasy, Early 60s. Very Good-
Heavy charanga work from Mongo Santamaria – a really early west coast take on the genre, and a record that features a slightly bigger group than usual for Mongo! Early partner Willie Bobo is in the combo on Timbales – and other players include Pupi Legarreta and Jose Chombo Silva on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good+
Although this one was issued as part of the cheesy Arthur Murray dance series on Capitol, it's actually got a great set of rhumba tracks played by Chuy Reys and his orchestra. The overall sound is nothing fancy, but the instrumentation is quite tight, and the whole album's a strong no-nonsense ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Playa Sextet

Bailando El Boogaloo
Musicor, 1967. Fair
Although not a boogaloo album all the way through, this is really one of the group's strongest efforts – and a record that does include some really fantastic Latin soul numbers! Arrangements are by Louie Ramirez and Ray Santos, both of whom bring a really darkly grooving sound to the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Casablanca, 1978. Very Good
Cool picture disc of the Motor Booty album, with a photo of George Clinton water skiing on two dolphins on one side, and a sketch of him fighting a bird on the other. Housed in a sleeve that lists the tracks on the album, but which doesn't have the same pop-up landscape as the non-pic disc version. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Humphrey

Me & My Drums
Stanson, 1979. Very Good+
A later album by Paul Humphrey, and with production that's a little bit rawer than some of his other 70's releases. The music's made by just Paul and Tony Drake, and the two of them play drums, bass, and lots of electronic keyboards and Arps – in this kind of scatter-shot approach to jazz ...
