Senor Charanga

LP (Item 919994) Fania (Mexico), 1980 — Condition: Sealed

(Mexican pressing in a unique cover.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Saludos From Fajardo
Panart, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Great work from one of the hippest Latin flute players of his time – a jazzy set that's heavy on cha cha rhythms! Tracks include "Pinocho", "No Te Quedes Con Las Ganas", "Particia", "La Sallita", "Bonito Y Sabroso", and "Aclarame Eso" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania All-Stars

Delicate & Jumpy
Fania/Columbia, 1976. Near Mint-
A stunner of a record from the Fania All Stars – a tremendous attempt to move into a 70s soul vein, complete with Satin Soul arrangements from Gene and Billy Page! The record bubbles over with the funky orchestrations you'd expect from the best Barry White work at the time – strings ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania All-Stars

Lo Que Pide La Gente
Fania, 1984. Very Good+
A mid 80s studio set from the Fania All Stars – and proof that the group was still going great at this time – almost reverting to their older modes of the early 70s, and shaking free of the more electric, more soul-based styles that group was using during their time at Columbia Records! ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Barretto

Rican/Struction
Fania, 1979. Near Mint-
A great album of salsa tracks recorded at the end of the 70s – when Ray was returning to the scene after a prolonged hand injury kept him out of music for a while. Despite this time off, though, Ray's in top top form – coming back to basics with a really heavy groove, picking up right ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania All Stars

California Jam
Fania, 1980. Very Good+
A cheesy cover, but a killer album from the Fania All-Stars – one that's quite different than most of their other work at the time, with an open-ended jam session feel that really takes us back to the old days! The group here is really just a sextet – the core combo used to launch the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Pacheco & Hector Casanova

Los Amigos
Fania, 1979. Very Good
A nice mix of 70s salsa and more traditional themes – part of the ever-evolving Pacheco sound during the great years of Fania, served up here with richly-ranged vocals from Hector Casanova! Casanova seems to push things a bit more than Pete El Conde Rodriguez did with Pacheco before – ... 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
Fania, 1975. Near Mint-
By the mid 70s, the New York Latin scene was boomin' so large it could easily fill venues like Yankee Stadium – as you'll hear on this excellent live set from the Fania All-Stars, a monster record that easily ranks with the best live Latin sides of the time – like Eddie Palmieri at Sing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestra Harlow

Hommy – A Latin Opera
Fania, 1973. Very Good+
Orchestra Harlow's answer to the Who's Tommy – Hommy, a Latin Opera, and one of the few concept albums we know from the New York Latin scene of the time! The tracks are fairly short, and they're separated by short "interludes" throughout the album that feature some cool spoken bits ... LP, Vinyl record album

Orchestra Harlow & Ismael Miranda

Con Mi Viejo Amigo
Fania, 1976. Very Good-
Larry Harlow's groovy group was still hitting strong in the mid 70s, and they're captured here with their best lead vocalist – the great Ismael Miranda! The session features guest appearances by Tito Puente, Ismael Quintana, Pupi Legarreta, and Milton Cardona – and titles include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania All-Stars

Rhythm Machine
Columbia/Fania, 1977. Very Good
One of the proudest moments of the New York Latin underground – a time when some of its best players wound up playing for Columbia, through a brief affiliation between Fania and the larger label! And although you might think that the album would totally sell out the group's best points, it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Celia Cruz, Johnny Pacheco, & Justo Betancourt

Recordando El Ayer
Vaya, 1976. Very Good+
Celia Cruz and Johnny Pacheco join forces with vocalist Justo Betancourt and pianist Papo Lucca – the latter of whom was making plenty big waves in music with Sonora Poncena at the time! Pacheco's the leader of the group on flute and percussion, but Lucca's piano has plenty of force in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
