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 Ricardo Ray & Bobby CruzEl Sonido De La Bestia (remastered edition) ... CD
Vaya/Fania, Late 70s. Used ... $12.99
Don't let the title fool you, because it's similar to the album that Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz started off the 70s with – El Bestial Sonido – but the record's something quite different indeed! This set has Ricardo and Bobby exploring a more spiritual side of their music – one that's still socially conscious, and still plenty heavy on the Puerto Rican salsa of their fame – but one that also features all original material with themes of faith and redemption. Of course, if you're not a Spanish speaker, all you'll really notice is that the album's got plenty of salsa grooves – and at some level, that's really the genius of the album – as Ray and Cruz pushed a new sensibility into mainstream salsa audiences. Titles include "Eres Tu", "El Relajo", "Juan En La Cuidad II", "Pra Tra Y Pa Tra", and "El Sonido De La Bestia". CD

New Al EscobarAl Escobar ... CD
Alma, Late 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily 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".
