Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo Vol 2 ... LP
Alegre, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An amazing follow up to Ricardo Ray's first album of Jala Jala and Boogaloo tracks – a real killer Latin soul set that's even better than the first! The record's got a full-on style that kicks in from the very first note – a blend of uptight Latin tracks and some very groovy 60s-styled numbers with plenty of sock-soul touches – a definite boogaloo influence, but still some strong Puerto Rican modes too. Lyrics are mostly in Spanish, but the grooves have a universal appeal that kicks in no matter what the language! Stormin and groovy all the way through – with tracks that include "Tin Marin", "Mr. Trumpet Man", "More Richie", and "Musica Ye Ye". LP, Vinyl record album

New Fania All-StarsOur Latin Thing (40th Anniversary Limited Edition DVD) (plus Live At The Cheetah Vols 1 & 2 with bonus tracks) (2CD/DVD) ... CD
Fania, 1972. Used 2CD+DVD ... Just Sold Out!
A landmark moment in the New York scene of the 70s – and a mindblowing document of the energy and lifestyle of the city's growing Latin scene at the time! The film combines live performances from the legendary Cheetah nightclub with amazing street footage – woven together in a rich tapestry of music and culture that documents the reality of life in Spanish Harlem at the time. Musicians featured include a veritable "who's who" of the New York Latin world – such as Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Johnny Pacheco, Bobby Cruz, Ricardo Ray, Bobby Valentin, and Hector Lavoe – but even without the music, the documentary footage alone makes the film an instant treasure! Spanish language film with English subtitles for the limited narration, with newly remastered sound. Also included are Live At The Cheetah Vols 1 & 2 on 2CDs. Vol 1 is easily one of the best by the group – and features long tracks that really capture the jamming intensity that occurred on stage when this many great artists were brought together in one space. Includes "Introduction Theme (Cheetah)", "Quitate Tu", "Descarga Fania", and "Anaconda". Vol 2 is just as great – and this set includes 3 previously unreleased tracks! Includes "Ponte Duro", "Estrellas De Fania", and "Ahora Vengo Yo" and more – plus the bonus tracks "Cocinando", "Abran Paso Part 1" and "Abran Paso Part 2". CD

New Al EscobarAl Escobar ... CD
Alma, Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Killer Latin soul from the great Al Escobar – maybe not one of the bigger names of the boogaloo generation, but certainly one of the best! The CD starts with work from Al's Modern Sounds album – a massive groover all the way through – filled with tight, choppy, soul-drenched sounds that easily rival the best from Joe Cuba or Ricardo Ray – with a similar blend of English and Spanish lyrics that really keeps things interesting! The instrumentation is superb – very sharp rhythms that almost veer towards funky at times – topped with great jazzy touches on horns, and some especially great lyrics on the English tunes. Titles include the massive original "Ape Walk" – plus great versions of "Tighten Up" and "The Horse", a medley of "Judy In Disguise/Chain Of Fools/Black Is Black", and the cuts "Mi Guajira", "Dejame Ya", and "Wave". Other tracks are from earlier vintage – more an early 60s Latin mode – but still pretty darn great, and titles include "Palm Springs Mambo", "Johnny's Special", "Oye Nicanor", "Lenny's Mambo", and "No Encuentro Palabras".
