Fania, 1975. New Copy ... $9.99 10.99
A roots-oriented 70s classic from Willie Colon – one of his standout albums of the decade! Willie continues his "life of crime" approach for the early 70s – moving into an old west look on the cover, and matching that with a slightly rootsier sound on the album! The real ... read more CD

RCA, 1957. Very Good- ... $4.99
Lush Cuban material, recorded by the Conjunto Casino in the years before Castro's regime, when RCA could still get its hands on material like this, and package it for release in the US.

Johnny ConquetRaisins & Almonds Cha Cha Cha & Merengues ... LP
RCA, 1958. Very Good+ ... $23.99
A great little record – and a prime example of the strong Jewish/Latin crossover that was going on in the late 50s and early 60s.
