New CortijoCortijo y Su Combo ... LP
Tropical, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the many great early 60s stormers from Cortijo – and a record that features vocals by Ismael Rivera, Nelson Pinedo, and Roy Rosario. The tracks are a mix of styles, but they all have a fairly traditional Afro-Cuban groove. Titles include "Que Coco", "El Mantequero", "Micaela", "Maria Teresa", and "Borinquen". And just in case you were wondering, the cover of this one is green, with Cortijo alone, hitting a conga! LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Tropical pressing. Cover and label each have a small name – and top seam has a small split.)

New Sonora Mantancera/Cortijo Y Su ComboDuelo Musical ... LP
Seeco, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Latin Battle Of The Bands – as Cortijo's combo and Sonora Matancera go head to head! The album alternates between tracks by each of the groups – so that there's 6 of each, and the listener comes out the winner! (Of course, a real "duelo" would feature one band in the left channel, and one in the right channel – and let them work it out at the same time!) Cortijo plays "Las Ingratitudes", "Palo Que Le Das", "Dejalo Que Suba", "Juan Jose", and "Lo Tuyo Es Cronico". Sonora Matancera perform "Ave Maria Lola", "Oye Mima", "Toitico Tuyo", and "Micaela".

New Cortijo & Su ComboLa Quiniela Del Dia ... CD
Tico/Fania, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A classic collection of grooves from the legendary Cortijo – most of which feature lead vocals from Ismael Rivera – mixed with a few other great tracks from later years too! Cortijo's combo was one of the leading lights of the pre-salsa scene – and his firey percussion really keeps things going here – helping to lay down some excellent rhythms that are perfect for the soaring vocals from Rivera, and other singers who include Azuquita, Pepito Negron, Jorge Millet, and Nacho Sanabria. Titles include "Sacame De Aqui", "Fuerza E Cara", "Coje Pa La Cola", "Calambre", "Bombon De Canela", "Agua Que Va A Caer", "Se Escapo Un Leon", "Aqui Estoy Ya Llegue", and "Arrecotin Arrecotan". CD

RamoncitoRamoncito Y Su Salsa ... LP
Discofon/Wah Wah (Spain), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Killer Latin sounds from the 70s Spanish scene – and a record that would be much more at home in the New York scene of the 60s! The percussion is very lively – in a way that takes us back to the sound of Cortijo's combo in the 60s – and is mixed with a sweet range of salsa flourishes on saxes and trumpets, and held together with some great electric bass work too! A few tunes bring in a slight South American flourish, but in ways that seem to illustrate a wider Latin vision from Ramoncito – and titles include "Severa", "Dejalo Que Suba", "Avisale A Mi Compay", "Plechanga", "Con La Punta Del Pie", and a sweet version of "Che Che Cole". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited to 300 copies.)

New VariousSaoco – The Bomba & Plena Explosion In Puerto Rico 1954 to 1966 (3LP set) ... LP
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1950s/1960s. Used 3LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A treasure trove of 50s and 60s music from Puerto Rico – and a killer compilation centered around the pioneering work of percussionist Rafael Cortijo and singer Ismael Rivera! Essentially, this a blueprint for the global salsa, tropical and Latin scenes to come – and it's invigorating, tightly grooving and wonderful stuff all the way! Wall-to-wall Afro and West Indian-indebted percussion and rhythms, with tight horns and incredible vocals. It's filled pioneering work, but this is hardly a history listen – it's a fun set, and a sprawling one at that! Includes "Cortaron a Elena" by Cortijo (as Canario & Su Grupo con Raful), "En Orbita" by Baltazar Carrero, "Habla Cuembre" by Los Caballeros Del Ritmo, "El Plenero" by Mon Rivera Y Su Orquesta, "Dejalo Que Suba" by by Cortijo (as Canario & Su Grupo con Raful), "Belinda" by Chivirico, "Cucala" by Cortijo Y Su Combo con Ismael Rivera, "Ron Con Coco" by Mon Rivera Y Su Orquesta and more. 30 tracks on 3LPs!
