Ray Barretto - The Other Road (Fania, 1973)
Interesting write up about this LP and its impact here: "Revisiting Ray Barretto’s The Other Road"

I love this one and would love to own it.

It's an outstanding record. I found the LP at Euclid a few years ago. The vinyl is in excellent condition. Sound is MUCH better than the MP3 downloads I owned previously. 

Unfortunately, the cover is badly water-damaged. But still... better a damaged cover than a damaged record. ;)

We're spoilt as jazz fans. Second hand salsa records in good condition are a rare thing. All my salsa LPs are a wreck save for the reissues. Not as bad as reggae, but close.

Which just goes to suggest that the Salsa and Reggae albums get played a lot more...

Club culture DJ classics but without the market value of e.g. soul 78s. That's my guess.

None of which explains why LPs from these two genres always appear to have been stored underwater. This is one of the mysteries of the human condition.

I have this and bought it after I had bought the "Charles Mingus Quintet plus Max Roach" with the same personnel and recording date. Then, I was a bit disappointed since the title "plus Max Roach" let me expect that there will be two drummers. That was in 1978, the same year I saw Max Roach for the first time life.

You're right. ... And it's probably just a matter of scarcity (not that many made in the first place), but I'm discovering that many Latin records are expensive too -- compared to most jazz records.  Both LPs and CDs.

But they're worth it!  :g

I dunno if it's solely a function of frequency.

I bet salsa or reggae records are much more likely be played at parties, where folks (not necessarily the owner) are likely to spill their drink on the cover or scratch the vinyl lifting the tonearm.  Jazz?  As often than not, it's solo listening.  So there's less likelihood that the album cover is used as a beer coaster.

I would say that the records get treated differently because the music is designed for different contexts.

I missed out the :) on my original post. I was obscurely suggesting, in jest, that Salsa and Reggae albums are a lot more fun :)

That depends on the parties...I always take my Brotzmann LPs to parties, don't other folk?

I had both in a twoofer back then. I have both in the debut box set. I bought both in vinyl, Japan, lately. Think they are my fave “quintet like “ Mingus.

Speaking off Contemporary…. This one arrived in the mail yesterday. Fantastic session and again I’m hugely impressed by Barbara Donald’s playing.

That's the dangerous thing about this forum!  

So many knowledgeable listeners posting all sorts of diverse, interesting music.  The ears cheer, but the wallet weeps!  :g
