Pacheco Presents Monguito

LP (Item 908946) Fania, 1971 — Condition: Very Good+

The debut album of Monguito Quian – not to be confused with Monguito Santamaria – who was also recording for Fania around the time, and who was also a Cuban singer recording in New York in the early 70s. This Monguito's more of a straight ahead Latin singer – presented here by Johnny Pacheco in a set of traditional-styled numbers that have a very solid feel. Monguito's a heck of a vocalist who was already well known in Cuba by the time of this set, and the album's got a very versatile sound overall. Titles include "La Pelotera", "Los Tres Juanes", "Junto Al Canaveral", "Esto Si Se Llama Querer", and "Me Voy Contigo".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Gold label pressing! Cover has splitting.)

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.
