Latin Heat – Cha Cha Cha

LP (Item 923126) Omega, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Stereo pressing. Cover has some splitting in the top seam.)

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.

Epic, Late 60s. Very Good+
A very early album by this seminal songwriter from the late 60s! The record's the first we can find by Jimmy, and it's got him singing in a kind of pop vocalist style, with arrangements by Hank Levine, and backing on some tracks by a small vocal group. The record lacks the off-beat hipness of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Happy Moog
Pickwick, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Man, this moog sure is happy! And who wouldn't be? The groovy lil' instrument's got some excellent backings here – all spare, rhythmic, and filled with cool electronic effects. The overall level of the electronics is more sophisticated than Perry-Kingsley, but in the end the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass

Beat Of The Brass
A&M, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Beautifully compressed pop from Herb Alpert – a session that's still got the traditional Tijuana Brass style, but which also displays a more restrained, more adult approach to instrumental pop! The rhythms are nicely changed out more than before here – stretching out with interwoven ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie Gleason

Riff Jazz
Capitol, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
We're not exactly sure what "riff jazz" is, but we can definitely say that the album's one of Jackie Gleason's jazziest from the 50s – a really hard-hitting affair that gets past the sleepier arrangements of other records, and makes great use of breakout solo work from Jimmy ...

Spellbinder
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
Breezy brilliance from the legendary Gabor Szabo – and one of the grooviest albums the Hungarian guitarist recorded during the 60s! The set's almost a tightening up of the style that Szabo first brought to prominence in his work with Chico Hamilton – a sound that's got roots in gypsy ... LP, Vinyl record album
