Adalberto Featuring Popeye El Marino

CD (Item 894386) Fania, 1979 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD

❔

Forget the cartoony cover image of this one, because the record's got a tremendous depth and very little gimmicks – a reall standout set of work by one of the greatest salsa vocalists of the 70s! Sure, the title track does reference the Popeye cartoons a bit, but overall the record's got a soulfulness and sensitivity that stands out even among Adalberto Santiago's contemporaries at Fania – a range of material and flexibility that comes off wonderfully, thanks to a top-shelf batch of arrangers and the sense of feeling that Santiago brings to the lyrics. Titles include "Popeye El Marino", "La Tierra Da", "PR Brindo Por Ti", "Ay Caray", "Mucho Corazon Y Enferma Del Alma", "Mujer Celosa", and "Fuego De Amor".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Pacheco

Artist
Fania, 1977. Used
Johnny Pacheco's still one hell of an artist well into these late 70s years of his career – one of the key talents in the transformation of the New York Latin sound in the early 60s, and still equally vibrant in his work for the younger generation too! The album's got that cool, cooking ... CD

Hector Lavoe

Comedia
Fania, 1978. Used
A hokey cover but a really classic album from Hector Lavoe – one of his biggest records of the 70s, and a great mix of modes that showcases the full range of his talents! The standout number here is the 10 minute groover "El Cantate" – a driving salsa tune penned by Ruben ... CD
Fania, 1972. Used

Tico/Fania, 1980. Used
Ismael's still going strong at the end of the 70s – working with a set of arrangements by pianist Javier Vazquez – all in a tight salsa mode, but with some nice rootsy touches! Mario Hernandez plays tres on the record, giving some tunes a really nice bottom rhythm – and the group ... CD
Inca/Fania, 1977. Used
Beautiful work from this crack 70s New York group – produced by Louie Ramirez with a soulful style that really fits the group's new traditionalist groove! Arrangements are by Papo Lucca, and feature a blistering barrage of his feisty piano work, mixed with percussion, and topped off by some ... CD
Cotique/Fania/Codigo, Early 70s. Used
A stone kicker by the Lebron Brothers – not as all-out Latin soul as the group's first few records, but a heck of a great session nonetheless! The album's got the brothers moving into more of a 70s salsa mode, but still keeping the small combo edge of their earlier albums – singing in ... CD
Fania, 1971. Used
The third LP from supremo salsa combo Sonora Poncena under Papo Lucca's direction and a wonderful early production effort from the great Larry Harlow, to boot!

Sofrito (remastered edition)
Vaya/Fania, 1976. Used
A classic Mongo Santamaria record from the late 70's – one of the best of his albums for Vaya, filled with nice electric-tinged grooves, and some great work in the Latin fusion mode! The sound's different from his 60's recordings, with more of a jazzy vibe, and a sound that's a little bit ... CD
Fania, Mid 60s. Used
Killer material from the mid 60s – recorded for United Artists after Ray's initial watusi work for Tico – and in a similar style that has mixes together Ray's Charanga Moderna sound with some more boogaloo and Latin Soul numbers! The record's a key bridge between these two chapters of ... CD
