Cuerda Para Rato

LP (Item 976875) Lad, 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover is bent at the top left corner.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Fairly standard work from Machito, with a number of vocal cuts that feature either Machito or Graciela – but a record that really shines in the jazzy moments! These cuts include a version of "Pent-Up House", with a sax solo by Aaron Sachs, a reading of "Tenderly" with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Bobo

Bobo Motion
Verve, 1967. Very Good+
Bobo Motion is groovy motion – heard here on one of Willie's best albums for Verve from the late 60s – a really unique blend of jazz, Latin, and soul-based rhythms! The set's even tighter than some of Willie's other Verve records – and like the classic Uno Dos Tres, it's got some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arsenio Rodriguez

Primitivo
Roost, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the best New York recordings made by Arsenio Rodriguez! The record has a strong rootsy feel, which lest Arsenio's hard raw sound come out nice and clear – and the overall approach is a good mix of traditional sounds and more modern production, which is a nice thing if you've ever been ...

Tito Puente

20th Anniversary
Tico, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great compilation of Tito's work for the Tico label – put together in celebration of his 20 years in show biz, and mostly featuring tunes recorded around the time of the release of the record.

Fania All-Stars

Delicate & Jumpy
Fania/Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
A stunner of a record from the Fania All Stars – a tremendous attempt to move into a 70s soul vein, complete with Satin Soul arrangements from Gene and Billy Page! The record bubbles over with the funky orchestrations you'd expect from the best Barry White work at the time – strings ... LP, Vinyl record album

1979 session recorded in Stuttgart, with Talib Qadr on reeds and the occasional vocal, Greg Brown on bass, and John Betsch on drums.

Charles Earland

Live At The Lighthouse
Prestige, 1972. Very Good+
A real killer from Hammond hero Charles Earland – a record that stretches out as much as his studio gems for Prestige, but in a slightly different way!

Isley Brothers

Isleys Live
T Neck, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of the hippest 70s albums by the Isley Brothers – a set that has them playing live with a stripped-down group, in a manner that's similar to other live albums of the time by Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, and Bill Withers. The format is great, and really gets to the core of the Isley's ... LP, Vinyl record album
