Los Shakers: "La Conferencia Secreta Del Toto's Bar" 1968, Argentina/EMI-Odeon Pops LDX-309 Mono. Disc is in nice EX to M- shape except for a scuffed area at the end of side one, I listened closely to this and only heard a few faint ticks as a song was fading out; the disc gets a VG+ grade to be strict. To clarify, playback is almost entirely M-. The cover has some rubbing on the seams, a small split starting at the pocket opening on the top, and a rubber stamp on the back panel reading "Sample Not For Sale"; this cover gets a VG+ grade. Ultra-rare Mono original pressing of their third LP, and it's the superior Argentina edition which has the best pressing quality! This is an exceptionally high-grade example; if you collect records from Latin America you know how tough it is to locate clean copies of rock releases from this era. Originally from Uruguay, the Shakers had relocated to Buenos Aires by the mid-1960s so this is the original home country issue. Stupendous melodic pop-psych sung in English with a strong Beatles influence; this LP has long been coveted by collectors in every corner of the world. The charm of most South American 1960s groups is their amateurish take on Western rock music, but there's no pretending with these guys. They were a world-class rock band.

Everything I offer is guaranteed. I try to note any flaws with the disc and the cover so that there are no surprises when the box arrives. Be sure to view my other iamthewitch auctions as I have other interesting items up for grabs this week.
I ship all records in strong cardboard mailers with cardboard flats added to increase stability. Thediscs are always removed from the jackets to prevent seam splits, and all albums are dressed in plastic sleeves for travel.
