Sabroso! - A New Box of $5 Latin Records

Hello Y'all,

Did all right at the Record Fair. I was a bit lost at first with the absence of the "Dollar Record" guys from DC. As luck would have it Robin Edgerton over heard one of the dealers say that all his records were $5 regardless of sticker. He had about 8 boxes of Latin records and below is a list of what I snagged. Most of what he had was from the 50's or in a Salsa groove but that's OK with me.

A HUGE thank you to Robin!

$5 each - Almost all in mint condition:
Coritjo & Su Combo con Ismael Rivera (Rumba Records)
Charranga Moderna Ray Rarretto y su Orquestra (Tico)
Pacheco - 10 Great Years (Fania)
Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz - el Diferente (United Artists - UA Latino Series)
Best of Fajardo - (Panart)
Fajardo vs. Sensacion - (Adria)
Orchestra Harlow - Salsa (Fania)
Jerry Masucci presents Vol. 1 Salsa Greats (Fania)
Johnny Pacheco with Pete (Conde) Rodriquez - la Perfecta Combinacion (Fania)
Kako y Azuquita - Union Dinamica (Allegre)

Got these from his Jazz Boxes:
Kai Winding - Dirty Dog (Verve)
Bill Black's Combo Forever (Spring Board/Mega)

Ray from Scorpio hooked me up with these:
Armando Peraza - Wild Thing - (Skye Discovery Series)
Babs Gonzales - The Be-Bop Story (Expubidence Records)

These two unplayed 45's for a total of $9:
James Brown - "My Part/Make It Funky" - Part 3 and 4 (Polydor)
The Village Soul Choir - "The Cat Walk" b/w "The Country Road" (Abbott)

Clean copy of this for $10:
Maceo and all The Kingsmen - "Southwick" b/w "Funky Women" (House of The Fox)

Got this as an advance of a big trade I made with Bob Irwin. I've got a nice size credit with Sundazed:
NRBQ - Interstellar - Live 1970 (10") (Sundazed Kustom Shop)
