Plenas

LP (Item 849432) Ansonia, Mid 60s — Condition: Very Good-
An early set of plena work from Puerto Rico – served up by Manuel "Canario" Jimenez! Titles include "Que Se Va Jose", Tanta Vanidad", "Llego De Roma", "Hecisera", "Buscando A Malen", "Cortaron A Elena", and "Que Tabaco Malo".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(NOTE: One track has a mark that might skip – but the rest of the record is much better, closer to VG+. Green label original pressing.)

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.

Ansonia, Early 60s. Very Good+
Great stuff – and one of the purest examples we can find of the Latin piano style of the great Noro Morales! Noro plays here without any of the trappings of some of his other records – just working with a small rhythm combo on an all-instrumental set – with tremendous solo work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Timeless (Netherlands), 1982. Near Mint-
This early 80s recording comes quite late in Machito's career, kind of a companion set to the Live At North Sea LP recorde the same year– and a great set featuring hard-hitting big band Latin jazz arrangements! Unlike the live set, the numbers here are tight and short, but feature the great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orquesta Novel

Salsamania
Fania, 1976. Very Good+
A set with "salsa" in the title, but also one of those New York 70s records that gets back to basics too – bringing in a bit of charanga elements, including flute and violin – the latter of which is played by Latin disco maestro Eddie Drennon! The group features lead vocals ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green

Belle Album
Hi Records, 1977. Very Good+
Al takes over the whole deal with this one – as the record features him writing, producing, arranging, and even playing lead guitar – stepping out from under the protective wing of Willie Mitchell, and doing a surprisingly great job overall! Al does get a bit of help in the studio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Valerie Capers

Portrait In Soul
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good
The first album ever recorded by this obscure blind female pianist! The set has great original compositions that have a nice deep soul jazz feel – and players include Vincet McEwen on trumpet, Frank Perowsky on tenor, and a young Robin Kenyatta on alto sax – who comes off with some ...
