Numero Uno

LP (Item 900416) Sitar Sound, 1983 — Condition: Very Good+

...

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Mongo Santamaria

Stone Soul
Columbia, 1969. Very Good
A killer album from Mongo Santamaria's classic 60s run for Columbia – and a record that also features some wonderful alto work from a young Sonny Fortune! Sonny's the key soloist on the record – bringing some sharp jazz elements to an album that's equal part Latin and 60s soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, Early 70s. Very Good
A split album of work from La Lupe – with one side of dramatic pop numbers, and another side that hits a much more salsa-based bag! Given the range of Lupe's talents, the split here is no surprise – and the material on the pop side are mostly overblown ballads and love tunes that use ... LP, Vinyl record album

Xavier Cugat and His Orchestra

Viva Cugat!
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Nice later material by Cugie – recorded slightly before his 60s pop excursions, and with a sound that retains a lot of his original conception, but which touches it with some nice exotic hi-fi production. Titles include "Siboney", "Anna", "Jungle Drums", "Ju ... LP, Vinyl record album

Beny More

Asi Es Beny
Discuba, Early 60s. Very Good
Beny More's a hell of a singer – one of the strongest voices of his generation, and an artist who can sound especially strong on an upbeat number! More's got a way of stretching out and inflecting his vocals that was a huge inspiration on the Latin Soul and salsa generations to come – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Rosario

Boogaloo & Guaguanco
Atco, 1968. Very Good+
A wicked batch of Latin groovers from Willie Rosario – one that takes all the energy of his rare indie sides from the 60s, and fuses it with the tight approach to Latin Soul being hipped up by Atlantic at the time! The whole thing's great, and has a vibe that's very lively overall – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cotique, 1968. Near Mint-
Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Barretto

Energy To Burn
Fania, 1977. Very Good+
A really smoking set from Ray Barretto – recorded at a later date than his Latin Soul classics, but a beautifully imaginative batch of tracks that shows that Ray never stopped perfecting his art! The centerpiece of the album is the long track "Canto Abacuba", which has an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Latin Village
Liberty, 1964. Very Good
Martin Denny changes the rhythms from tropical to Latin here – but the overall groove is still highly in his best exotica mode, and nicely augmented by some additional instrumentation! There's some traces here of the shift in production for instrumental music from the time – a bit of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Strange, Les Baxter, Hall Daniels & Others

Secret Agent File (80s pressing)
GNP, 1960s. Very Good
Although there were plenty of easy and studio musicians who tried to cash in on the success of the Bond-era spy soundtracks, few did it as well as Billy Strange! He gets a helping hand here from Les Baxter and a boatload of west coast session greats like Carol Kaye, Tommy Tedesco, Dennis Budimir, ... LP, Vinyl record album
