This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
(Mexican pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear.)
Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean,
and not too dirty.
May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play,
but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep.
Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well,
with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song,
but never throughout a whole song or more.
This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times,
but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.
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.
Cugat plays a host of cha cha versions of Spanish songs, like "Granada", "El Beso", "Playera", "Malaguena", and "Ritual Fire Dance". The sound is the same as his other 50's stuff, with excellent RCA production, and a good choppy groove in the cha ... LP, Vinyl record album
Landmark work from Eddie Palmieri – a stunning performance by his Harlem River Drive band, recorded live before a very wild crowd at Sing Sing Prison! The feel here is a blend of the sound heard on the legendary Harlem River Drive album – a unique fusion of Latin, soul, and political ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Mongo's good electric Latin fusion LPs for Vaya, and a nice batch of tracks with a good groove to them, and a nice jazzy feel. There's some nice electric piano moments, and the band grooves nicely on cuts like "TV", "Images", "Havana", and "Mucho Mas". LP, Vinyl record album
Perez turns his popular Latin sound to some even more popular 50s compositions – and even if it's not enough to swing the kids at the jukebox on the cover of the record, there's still some nice lively Latiny moments. Titles include "Isle Of Capri", "Three Little Words", ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
A great set by one of the best Latin vocalists of the 70s – a bold solo effort recorded after a number of successful recordings with other groups! The set was produced by Ray Barretto, with whom Adalberto sang famously in years past – and is done with a really solid salsa sound that ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice mix of cha cha and flute-driven grooves from the great Fajardo – with titles that include "Kikiriki", "La Jaula De Oro", "Presente Y Pasado", "Los Pintores", "El Monito", and "En La Carniceria". LP, Vinyl record album
Very groovy work from Chico – still very Latin at the core, but with lots of light 60s touches on top, ala the work of Gary McFarland, or some of the other groove-conscious arrangers for Verve and Impulse! Players on the set include Art Farmer, Clark Terry, JJ Johnson, Seldon Powell, and Pat ... LP, Vinyl record album
