New Fania All-StarsLatin - Soul - Rock ... LP
Fania, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
After a disastrous attempt at recording a live show, the Fania All-Stars went in the studio with guests like Billy Cobham and Manu Dibango and created their funkiest and one of their finest albums of the seventies! A few cuts are more straight Latin sounding, some of these tracks have a nice hard funky jazz feel, and sound like they could have been recorded for Prestige. There's great versions of "Soul Makossa" and "Viva Tirado", plus a very nice track called "Smoke". Other titles include ""El Raton", "Congo Bongo", "Chanchullo", "There You Go" and "Mama Guela".

Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this second volume include "Kikapoo Joy Juice", "If This World Were Mine", "Richie's Bag", "Red Garter Strut", and "Son Cuero Y Boogaloo". Firey stuff, and one of their best records!

New Fania All-StarsRhythm Machine ... CD
Columbia/Discos 605, 1977. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the proudest moments of the New York Latin underground – a time when some of its best players wound up playing for Columbia, through a brief affiliation between Fania and the larger label! And although you might think that the album would totally sell out the group's best points, it's actually a great batch of cuts that mixes the All-Stars' strong salsa and jazz grooves with some nice club-oriented rhythms – a blend that was perfect to show the growing sophistication of the Nuyorican scene in the late 70s! All the right touches are still strongly in place – and the record features work from Pacheco, Roberto Roena, Mongo Santamaria, and Louie Ramirez, as well as guests Bob James and Eric Gale. Titles include "En Orbita", "Awake", "Juan Pachanga", "Steady", "Jubileo", and "Ella Fue". CD

VariousBig Ol' Bag O' Boogaloo Vol 4 (with download) ... LP
Andale, Late 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
A massive batch of Latin soul from the late 60s – all pulled from the deeper corners of the New York underground – from a range of fresh, young musicians who go way beyond the bigger names on Fania and Tico! The tunes here really show the sharpest changes in Latin music at the time – the strong embrace of soul and jazz sounds from other stretches of the uptown scene – and the move to smaller, tighter groups after years of bigger bands – which makes for the kind of lively instrumental interplay you're more likely to hear from a funk combo! Some numbers here have swinging soulful vocals, others are really cooking on the instrumental tip – and titles include "The Aztec Theme" by The Aztecs, "Having Fun" by Pepe Fernandez, "Ain't That Right" by Arthur Sterling, "Mi Guajira" by Frankie Nieves, "El Gallo" by Al Gonzalez, "Damelo Baby" by The Aztecs, "C-Rations & Cornbread" by Pepe Fernandez, and "Do The Boogaloo" by New York All Stars & Orquesta Novel. LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus download for the whole album!)

Fania/Strut, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A sprawling collection of classic Fania – featuring a pretty adventurous set of salsa, boogaloo, Afro-Latin, funkier numbers and all around incredible material put together by our friends at Strut Records – going beyond the classics! It features numbers by many of the most iconic names on Fania – Johnny Pacheco, Joe Bataan, Ray Barreto, Willie Colon, Bobby Valentin, Hector Lavoe and more – loosely chronicling the stylistic genesis at Fania during the time period, but compiled with an ear to the dancefloor rather than academia. A great set of classics on an uber-iconic label, put together by one of our favorite contemporary labels! 19 tracks on the 2LP version: "Dakar, Punto Final" by Johnny Pacheco, "Mercy Mercy Baby" by Ray Barretto, "Anacaona" by Cheo Feliciano, "Quimbara" by Celia Cruz & Johnny Pacheco, "Bomba Carambomba" by Sonora Poncena, "Pedro Navaja" by Willie Colon & Ruben Blades, "Cuando Despiertes" by Fania All Stars feat Celia Cruz and more.
