Cugatango (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 948150) Columbia, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good+

Xavier Cugat takes on the tango mode, and handles it with his great flair for the dramatic – on titles that include "Charisse", "Orchids In The Moonlight", "Adios Muchachos", and "La Cumparsita".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In nice shape!)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Best Of Cugat
Mercury, 1961. Near Mint-
We're not sure that this was actually a "greatest hits" because it's hard to find these tracks turning up elsewhere but it's a nice batch of lighthearted Latin dance tracks in any case. Tracks include "Mama Inez", "Tea For Two", "Taboo", "Sway", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Xavier Cugat Today!
Decca, Late 60s. Very Good
Very groovy stuff from Cugie! It's the late 60s, and he's got more of a pop Latin groove than earlier – and lays down some nice peppy covers of pop material, plus a few other Latin standards. Not exactly Latin soul – but not that far off, either. Includes a great version of "Samb ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Owens

Oliver! Ole!
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good+
Insanely wonderful Latin soul album recorded by Frank Owens that has the surprising (and goofy) bonus of being a Latiny rendition of the hit musical Oliver! Don't be put off by that cockney musical aspect of the source material, though – because the sound here is great New York Latin Soul, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint-
A really special record from a really special group – one of two sublime 70s gems from Azteca – a wicked blend of jazz, funk, Latin, and soul – all put together by a young Coke Escovedo! Coke's ostensibly the leader of the group, but there's also a richly collaborative feel going ... LP, Vinyl record album

A Bailar La Cumbia
Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good
Tight record of earlier Cumbia stuff, recorded by Columbia as part of their great Latin series from the early 60's (when the Catskills market was big enough to make it worthwhile for major labels to put this stuff out). And although the liner notes claim that the Cumbia's great because you can ... LP, Vinyl record album

Latin Fever
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the greatest albums of Latin Jazz ever recorded on the west coast during the 50s – and a landmark session from Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo! The album well earns its "fever" claim – as the set smokes from the very first note – Jack's bongos calling the pace ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Bataan II
Salsoul, 1981. Very Good+
One of the sweeeeet club groovers recorded by Joe Bataan in the the early 80s – and an album that has a bit more of a disco feel than before, but which still stays firmly in the Latinized Salsoul sound that Bataan helped to forge and name! Joe's vocals are great – still honest and with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Santitos
Fania, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Santos is singing to backings by Tito Puente – who does a great job of keeping the pace strong on this second album of vocal tracks for Fania. Titles include "Roberta", "Huellas De Amor", "Mi Llanto Y La Lluvia", "Nina – Mujer", "Negro ... LP, Vinyl record album
