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.

Verve, 1968. Very Good
A really unique little 60s Latin session from Verve – recorded with a surprisingly stripped-down feel that you wouldn't expect from the label, given that they mostly went for a groovier pop-Latin approach at the time!
