Workin' On A Groovy Thing

LP (Item 8249) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Very Good

Another one of Mongo Santamaria's strong Latin Soul LP's for Columbia, with a tight band that includes Sonny Fortune, Louis Gasca, and Joe Farrell. The record features smokin' versions of late-60's soul hits, plus a good original "We Got Latin Soul". Other tracks include "Get Back", "It's Your Thing", and "Getting it Out Of My System". Fortune and Gasca lay down some very nice solos, and Marty Sheller did all the arrangements, with his classic Latin Soul sound!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo 360 Sound pressing. Cover has some wear, a center split bottom seam, and a sticker on the center of the spine.)

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.
