Ensalada Tropical

LP (Item 914880) Lamejor Musica (Mexico), 1983 — Condition: Very Good+

(Cover has a promo ink stamp on back.)

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.

Cook, Early 50s. Near Mint-
A nice little session of Latin jazz – percussive at the bottom, but with an overall jazz mambo feel that's similar to early 50s work by Chico O'Farrill. Tracks are shortish, but have some nice solos by unnamed players – and titles include "Hi Fi Mambo", "Mambo A La ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

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

Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
A masterpiece – and don't pass it up! Sure, the date's a bit later than some of Roy's classic work, but the record's got a sound like no other – with a slow mellow jazzy style that shows Roy working at the height of his powers! There's some wonderful spacey production on the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Silver

Cape Verdean Blues
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint-
A classic set from Horace Silver – one in which his quintet is expanded by some great guest work from trombonist JJ Johnson!
