A spicy mix of Latin styles from the Peruvian scene of the late 60s – a wonderfully mixed up batch of modes that goes way beyond the more familiar grooves of the New York scene! The work here is a bit like some of the most inventive styles from Colombia and Panama at the same time – music that definitely gets an inspiration from up north, but then really grooves away in its own direction – changing up rhythms, instrumentation, and production styles – all with lots of groovy twists and turns that really keep things interesting! The track selection is great – with a strong focus on upbeat, lively numbers – and (dare we say it?) this volume may well be the best so far in the Gozalo series – filled with lots of stuff we've never heard before. Titles include "Bailando Boogaloo" by El Combo De Pepe, "Volando" by Coco
Lagos, "Gozalo" by Al Veldez, "Macedo's Boogaloo" by La Sonora De Lucho Macedo, "Boogaloo Girl" by Alfredo Linares Y Su Sonora, "Shake Baby" by Los Hiltons, "Que Sera" by Compay Quinto, "Sabor Tropical" by Alfredo Linares, "El Negro Bembon" by Nico Estrada, "Me Quedo Con El Shing-a-Ling" by Bossa 70, "Me Voy A Morir" by Silvestre Montez, "Louie Louie" by Mario Allison, "Mr Trumpet Man" by Tito Chicoma, "Mulata A Go Go" by Sonora Lucho Macedo, and "Oye Mi Descarga" by Carlos Munoz.
