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.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Sealed.)

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.

A sweet little session from the Bay Area scene – a set that features English and Spanish language vocals from guitarist Memo – plus backing in a mix of funky jazz and clubby soul!

Jack Costanzo

Mr Bongo
Clarion, Early 60s. Very Good+
A rare bit of Latin jazz from this mighty percussionist – the man also known to the world as Mr Bongo! The date's Jack's only one for Atlantic Records – and the cuts are short, hard, and fast, with Jack's nimble hands on the bongo highlighted on most cuts, with tight backing behind, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1968. Very Good+
A smoking bit of Latin Soul from pianist Sonny Bravo – one of the few albums of its type ever issued on Columbia Records, but a classic cooker that easily matches the best on Fania or Tico from the 60s! Sonny's probably better known for his later work as an arranger, but here he's the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benitez

Essence Of Life
Vaya, 1977. Very Good+
Excellent stuff from Eddie Benitez and his jazzy Latin soul combo of the 70s! The band had a very unique blend of Latin fusion, jazzy musicianship, and soulful vocals – and in a way, they were continuing experiments begun in the early days of the Nu Yorica era, but which had been cast aside ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Late 50s. Very Good+
There's been more than a few excellent Latin sets based upon the work of Irving Berlin – but this album may well be the finest! Machito's in top top form here, working in that late 50s heavy-jazz mode that we treasure from some of his best Tico/Roulette albums – and the all-instrumental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Why Not Cha Cha Cha?
Imperial, Late 50s. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1958. Very Good
By the end of the 50s, Machito was a king of the Latin scene – and had an ability to both groove hard, and lay down sophisticated arrangements that were a lot stronger than those of other throwaway cha cha cha groups. This album's one of his best from the era – and it includes lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Bobo

Feelin' So Good
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good
One of the Verve albums that focuses on Willie Bobo's talents as a singer – still very much in the tight Latin Soul style of Willie's other work from the time, but with more vocals on the tracks – done in Willie's rough-styled soulful mode! Includes the groovers "Feelin' So ... LP, Vinyl record album

Irakere

Irakere 2
Columbia, 1980. Very Good
The second Columbia album for this amazing Cuban combo – and a record that really helped get the talents of Irakere a lot of overdue exposure here in the US! The record's surprisingly tight – especially for a major label effort of the time – really committed to the deepest sides ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Anderson

Our Man In Africa
FM, 1963. Very Good+
Folksy soul from George Anderson – an African singer by birth, recording here in a Paris studio, and singing in a mode that's a bit like some of Miriam Makeba's recordings from the time. George is on lead vocals and acoustic guitar – and most tracks have rather spare backings, with ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Sunny Ade

Juju Music
Mango, 1982. Near Mint-
King Sunny Ade's first major label LP, that helped him bring his juju music to the world. The blueprint of juju's laid down hear, with loads of intertwining guitar lines and tallking drums chattering away in a driving but never-too-busy fashion underneath. Includes "Sunny Ti De Arya", ...
