If your boy is the record dealer from NY that is in Panama right now I am sure he is gonna have a better shot finding records on his own down there than anyone from SoulStrut will from behind their desks here in the states.
HELLO STRUT!I thought you guys knew? City and Country is called P-A-N-A-M-A.There must be a Record Dealer.
There's a dealer "Panama Jose" with pretty solid crates. He carries mostly local material, but it's cheap and usually in excellent condition. Exciters LPs sell for maybe $10, but most of them are unplayed store stock. He hangs around the docks, mostly--he's chummy with the stevedores. Look for a guy about 6'2" with a pony tail and a slightly lazy eye. If you bring him a bottle of Canadian Club, he may knock 50% of the price. Tell Jose I send my regards. Oh yeah, DON'T talk about the canal with him. It's a sore spot.
He was a bitch to find in the docks too; you didn't warn me about not going at night!

HELLO STRUT!I thought you guys knew? City and Country is called P-A-N-A-M-A.There must be a Record Dealer. With an attitude like that, I'm sure as hell not about to help out with an actual contact I have there. Strut is not the Yellow Pages.
