Metiendo Mano

CD (Item 907412) Fania, 1977 — Condition: Used
$12.99 ...

CD

Willie Colon declares Ruben Blades as the champ on the cover of this early solo set – and for good reason too, as the album's one of Blades' best! There's a clear, clean simplicity to the record that's totally wonderful – a purity of vision before some of Ruben's later crossover efforts – and a standout sense of voice that's a bit different than the work he'd recorded with Willie Colon as a leader. Of course, given the image on the front, Willie's never too far off – arranging some tracks, producing the record, and playing trombone as well – yet somehow, there's a slight divergence here from the usual Colon groove – and an initial expression of Ruben Blades' grander Latin vision. In addition to Colon, arrangements are also by Louie Ramirez and Louie Cruz – and the band's as tight as can be, and features Yomo Toro on cuatro, Sonny Bravo on piano, and Jose Mangual and Milton Cardona on percussion. Titles include "La Maleta", "Fue Varon", "Pueblo", "Me Recordaras", and "Lluvia De Tu Cielo".  © 1996-2020, 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.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

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.

Eddie Palmieri

La Verdad – The Truth
Fania, 1987. Used
A great little salsa session – issued in kind of a cheapo cover, but with some of Eddie's best grooves of the 80s! The album's got a great jazzy touch, and the rhythm section is excellent – very subtle, and with a dark edge that works perfectly with Eddie's piano solos. Most tracks ... CD

Ismael Miranda con Orchestra Harlow

Abran Paso! (remastered edition)
Fania, 1971. Used
The last album that Ismael Miranda cut with Orchestra Harlow – but an extremely strong effort that draws from all the great work they did together! Larry Harlow's still very firmly at the helm of the set – producing, arranging, and playing piano with the classic Orchestra Harlow lineup ... CD
International/Fania/Codigo, 1973. Used
The mighty Apollo Sound combo at the height of their powers – hard-hitting on percussion, but also sparkling with some jazzier touches on tenor sax, flute, and trombone! Roberto Roena had a slightly looser groove than some of his contemporaries, and as you'll hear on this set, there's space ... CD

Cheo Feliciano

Sentimiento, Tu
Fania, 1980. Used
Sweet strings and sophisticated soul – a wonderful combination in the hands of Cheo Feliciano, who sounds equally great here on both mellow and upbeat material! The self-produced record shows a growing sense of grace and power in Cheo's music – and working here with musical directors ... CD
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
