Festival De La Cancion Latinoamericana De San Francisco

LP (Item 867293) 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. Titles on this volume include "La Muralla" by Carlos Del Mar", "En Algun Lugar Del Mundo" by Guillermo Hernandez, "Chiquilladas" by Tony Orellana, "Te Propongo" by Edymo, "Quiseira" by Maria Rebeca, "Hoy" by Hilda Amador, "Desde Que Te Conoci" by Oscar Orellana, "Mil Rencores" by Carlos Del Mar, and "Rumores" by Gloria Serrano.  © 1996-2020, 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.

Danny Gonzalez Y Su Orquesta Sensacional
Astro, Early 70s. Very Good
A solid salsa session, featuring the alto work of Danny Gonzalez, plus vocals by Junior Diaz and Papo Lebron. There's some great instrumentation on the album – snaking along in a mode that's clearly copped from the Latin soul crowd, but done here in a mode that's straighter Latin. Titles ...

A duo from Chile, but one with a good ear for American pop of the 60s – which they sing in their own groovy way, with a style that's a bit different than usual late 60s Latin soul! The set features versions of "Mind Excursion", "Younger Girl", "Jelly Jungle", ... LP, Vinyl record album
