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 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), 1950s/1960s. New Copy 2CD ... 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 2CDs.
