Tico, 1976. Near Mint- .... $26.99
A really great record by Joe Cuba – recorded a few years later than his Latin Soul material, but a tight batch of salsa cuts that proves that Joe sure wasn't sleepin' in the 70s! Arrangements are all great – by the likes of Joe, Sonny Bravo, Louie Ramirez, and Marty Sheller – and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Joe CubaComin' At You ... CD
Seeco, Early 60s. New Copy .... $12.99
The young Joe Cuba's coming on plenty strong here – working with a stripped-down sextet that was his answer to the larger, stuffier Latin groups of the previous generation! Cuba's combo has plenty of fire right from the start – and a sublime mix of jazz and percussion that's a key link ... read more CD

Joe CubaEl Alma Del Barrio – The Soul Of Spanish Harlem ... LP
Tico, Mid 60s. Very Good+ .... $43.99
The Soul of Spanish Harlem – and the upbeat sound of the Joe Cuba Sextet – a hard-to-find album recorded just before the dawn of the classic Latin soul era!

Seeco/Pimienta, Early 60s. New Copy .... $13.99
A nice little collection of early work by the Joe Cuba Sextet – recorded before Joe's Latin Soul years, when he was recording for the Seeco label, and turning out some of the best small combo Latin of his time!

Tico, Mid 60s. Near Mint- .... $19.99
Great Joe Cuba set from the mid 60's. This one was recorded slightly before Joe hit it big with his Latin soul hit "Bang Bang", and the sound's a mix of Latin jazz and tracks that have more of a Latin soul sound. The lineup includes the classic sextet, and tracks include "Oye ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+ .... Just Sold Out!
Silly title – but a great album, with Cugie playing relatively straight Latin versions of 60s pop hits. A few of the tunes are a bit silly, but there's less of the goofiness that "caricatures" might imply. Titles include "Papa Loves Mambo", "Night Train", " ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of the weirdest, coolest Latin Soul albums we've ever heard – the only offering ever from the duo of Dianne & Carole – two female singers who come off with a great deal of enthusiasm on the set!

We're not sure if Jose Fajardo actually recorded this album in Japan, but we can say that it's a great little smoker that stands with his best from the early 60s – filled with lively pachanga rhythms, and graced with plenty of his own deft work on flute!
