Taste Of Education

LP (Item 944538) CP, 1972 — Condition: Very Good

One of the most obscure albums from Latin piano giant Eddie Cano – recorded after his famous groovers of the 60s! The record's an odd one, but it's got some great moments – partly a Spanish language instruction record, but with music by Eddie – so that you'll have these spoken parts teaching spanish, while Eddie grooves along with some rhythms and piano. The mix is strangely compelling, and the album does feature two nice instrumentals too.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear, and a small bit of pen.)

Very Good

  • 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.
