Ubane

CD (Item 944524) Vaya, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A classic collaboration between singer Justo Betancourt and percussionist Mongo Santamaria – who gives Justo some of his strongest backings of the 70s! Marty Sheller produced, conducted, and arranged most of the tracks – and gives the record the same sort of rock-solid sound he'd brought to Mongo's music from the 60s onwards – and the players are a stellar list of Latin talents, with Barry Rogers on trombone, Justo Almario on tenor and flute, Victor Paz on trumpet, Andy Gonzales on bass, Steve Berrios on timbales, and Mongo himself on congas and bongos! Most tunes are originals by Mongo, and Justo's vocals soar mightily over the grooves – on titles that include "Manana", "Cantandole Al Amor", "Cumbia Tipica", "Ubane (Canto Abacua)", "Miedo", "Kindimbia", "No Me Importa", and "Serpentina".  © 1996-2020, 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.
