2nd Festival De La Cancion Latinoamericana De San Francisco

LP (Item 862985) Nucleus, Early 80s — Condition: Sealed

A compelling collection of underground Latin tracks recorded on the San Francisco scene – issued here by the Nucleus Records label, who were best known for their Bay Area Brazilian releases! The set features selections from a festival of Latin American styles in SF – and includes tuneful numbers in a variety of styles, all with vocals in the lead, and a mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation. You might think of these tracks as the indie side of Latin pop – especially for the period – and titles include "Mujer Joven" by Lorenzo Avila, "Promesa" by Patricia Leal, "Buscando Un Futuro" by Juan Rosales, "Vete" by Manuel Posada, "Amor Cobarde" by Juan Gomez, "Atras De La Montana" by Gloria Serrano, "Tu Fuiste Mi Primer Amor" by Lorenzo Avila, Abrazame" by Jorgte Salvador, and "Que Lastima" by Raymundo Lopez.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Malo

Ascencion
Warner, 1974. Very Good+
This one's a bit tighter than some of the group's earlier albums – but still equally funky, and still very nice!

Warner, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Malo may be evolving a bit, but they're still right in the pocket as far as we're concerned!

Surprisingly nice album that has Tito Ramos and Tony Rojas reuniting in a crackling session of 70s salsa that mixes English and Spanish lyrics, both with the kind of soul that the band was famous for in the 60s. Tracks include "Hello My Love", "Los TNT", "La Mujer ... LP, Vinyl record album

California Jam
Fania, 1980. Very Good+
A cheesy cover, but a killer album from the Fania All-Stars – one that's quite different than most of their other work at the time, with an open-ended jam session feel that really takes us back to the old days! The group here is really just a sextet – the core combo used to launch the ... LP, Vinyl record album
