Silver Rockets

LP (Item 910838) Trebol (Mexico), 1982 — Condition: Near Mint-


Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Patato & Totico

Patato & Totico
Verve, 1968. Very Good
A really unique little 60s Latin session from Verve – recorded with a surprisingly stripped-down feel that you wouldn't expect from the label, given that they mostly went for a groovier pop-Latin approach at the time! Percussionists Patato Valdez and Totico join with Arsenio Rodriguez, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1967. Near Mint-
An early classic from vocalist Jimmy Sabater – one of the greatest singers of the New York scene, and a vocalist who was equally talented with both English and Spanish lyrics! The record's got a nicely soulful feel – not really Latin Soul, but in the kind of sophisticated approach that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tito Puente

Mucho Cha Cha
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Mucho cha cha here – the reigning rhythm on the New York Latin scene at the end of the 50s – played by Tito Puente and group with some nicely jazzy styles! The combo features some excellent horn work alongside the percussion – both sax and trumpet sections, plus some leaner flute ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tres De Cafe Y Dos De Azucar
Fania, 1973. Very Good
One of the last albums from the team of Johnny Pacheco and Pete El Conde Rodriguez – and one of the best, too! The set's got an all-solid feel all the way through – a well-crafted approach to the tunes that's simple, and almost effortless – but which comes from Pacheco's years of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rumba, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Killer sounds from Cortjio and his classic combo – a group who really helped to redefine the sound of Latin music in the 60s!

Tito Rodriguez

Tico, Late 50s/1978. Very Good+
We're not entirely sure, but we have a feeling that the material on this set is older than the 1978 date on the album – as it feels a lot like classic Tito from the early days, possibly from his first few LPs at Tico. Tracks are short, with distinct choppy late 50s-styled grooves – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1957. Near Mint-
Candido's firey conga is backed by a tight jazz group conducted by Ernie Wilkins. The players include Art Farmer, Jimmy Cleveland, Hank Jones, and Ernie Royal, and although they don't get to solo much, they play nice and hard, and give Candido great support in the background. Tracks include " ... LP, Vinyl record album
