One of the Verve albums that focuses on Willie Bobo's talents as a singer – still very much in the tight Latin Soul style of Willie's other work from the time, but with more vocals on the tracks – done in Willie's rough-styled soulful mode! Includes the groovers "Feelin' So ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Back cover has discoloration due to age on the back.)
Willie Colon's last album for Fania Records – and a well-rounded hit that ensured his success into the 90s! Despite the cheesy cover and title, the music is actually quite strong – a bit of a departure from the classic Colon sound, with some added keyboards and stronger use of ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Moncho Lena really cooks here on timbales – leading a tight little combo that easily rivals Tito Puente's group of the time! There's a jazzy flourish to most numbers here – as the group is driven by Moncho's rhythms, then opens up on trumpet and piano! Hector Rivera handles the keys, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
A great set of Latin grooves – and despite the "calypso" in the title, this is pretty much a straight Latin album from Joe Loco, and it ranks as one of his best from the 50s. The grooves are nice and straight ahead, with searing percussion, and nice heavy piano from Joe. Who ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has wear and staining on the back.)
A pretty lively set of tracks from Joe – handled in his classic mode, with a small percussion combo behind him, and firey piano grooving hard and free right up front! Side one features compositions by Rafael Hernandez – including "Silencio", "Campanitas De Cristal", ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
70s work from Machito – still very much in the mode of his classics from earlier years, but with an undeniable punch on a few numbers, thanks to the smoking salsa groove of the Coco Records label! The album's got one really standout track entitled "Macho" – a 13 minute ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Dos ... LP Warner, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold ....
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first! The group are really in top form here – taking off with Santana-inspired riffs that are filled with heavy percussion, soaring organ, ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has an unglued bottom seam & some light wear.)
A fantastic record that's truly one of Tito Rodriguez's best from the 60s – a very jazzy affair, and one that breaks the pattern of most of his other albums of the time! As the title implies, Tito's working here live at Birdland nightclub – with a jazz-based lineup to match the setting ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy original pressing. Vinyl is nice and clean, and cover is nice.)
Pretty straight Latin work from Alfredo Vargas, and most tracks feature vocals by Ferdibu. However, the real winners are a few short unnamed tracks (there's about 3 of them), all of which are hard short percussion-driven tunes – almost with a descarga feel to them, except that they're a bit ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
