Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Killer early work from Bobby Valentin – one of his few Latin Soul recordings, cut back when he was leading the band on trumpet! The album's got a lyrical side that's different from some of Bobby's other work – with a number of tracks in Spanish, but a few even better numbers in English ...

New Bobby ValentinRey Del Bajo ... CD
Fania, 1974. New Copy ... Around August 10, 2014
Bobby Valentin was certainly the king of the bass by the time of this record – and a player who'd helped bring the electric instrument from its strong 60s use in Latin Soul to one of the key components in salsa rhythms of the 70s! The set follows very strongly in bold sound of Valentin's ... (Latin) read more CD

Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
Massive work from the great Bobby Valentin – his first-ever album, issued back when he was a jazzy trumpeter!

Fania, 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure batch of funk tracks from Fania – recorded in Paris, and most likely licensed to the label in some strange trade of releases with a French label. Whatever the case, the record's got a very different sound than the usual fare on Fania – a groove that's part sound library funk ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album
