CD (Item 930490) Athens Of The North (UK), 2018 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock



An album recorded in Scotland, but done with all the strong fire as some of our favorite Latin classics from the New York scene! These guys are fantastic, right from the start – tight percussion, mighty sharp horns, and this great use of Fender Rhodes that recalls those late 70s moments when Mongo Santamaria was employing the keyboard to such great effect – further enriching the jazzy currents in the music, while the rest of the combo comes down hard with plenty of soul! There's a few Spanish Harlem touches in the lyrics – but most of the set is percussively salsa, and super-strong throughout. Titles include "Vulcano V El Gato", "Hermanos Latinos", "Bailalo Y Muevelo", "Somos Latinos", "Enciendelo", "The Sun From Above", "Papa Was A Rolling Stone", and "Vampiras".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
