Pops & Prado
RCA, 1959. Very Good
Perez turns his popular Latin sound to some even more popular 50s compositions – and even if it's not enough to swing the kids at the jukebox on the cover of the record, there's still some nice lively Latiny moments. Titles include "Isle Of Capri", "Three Little Words", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Puerta Del Sur
Vampi Soul (Spain), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
One of the coolest contemporary combos in the Latin scene – a group who bristle with all the fire of a classic New York or Puerto Rican ensemble – and one who really keep the salsa dura flag flying high! Almost every cut here is a winner – just the kind of heavy-hitting gems that ... CD

Un Gran Dia En El Barrio
Ropeadope, 2002. Used
A surprisingly great batch of modern salsa tracks – recorded with a really classic feel! The group's led by pianist/arranger Oscar Hernandez – and it features work by a number of older salsa legends, including Jimmy Sabater, Ruben Rodriguez, and Bobby Allende. Tight all the way ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
RCA, 1958. Very Good-
A fantastic session of jazzy instrumental Rhumba tracks – played with lots of excellent saxophone flourishes, and a tight percussive groove that never gets to soppy. This is one of the best of the RCA Latin sides from the late 50s – and it's a no-nonsense album that features a tight ... LP, Vinyl record album

Se La Comio
Fania, Late 60s. Used
If a cover was enough, this album would already be great – but it's also one of the hardest-grooving sets from Bobby Valentin, cut at the end of the 60s with a heavy early salsa groove! Bobby's really stepping off his Latin soul work nicely with the set – moving into a realm of longer, ... CD

Alexander Review
Vaya, 1975. Used
One of the coolest, hippest Latin soul sets ever – and a rare funky version of the style from the early 70s! The group's headed up by Mark Alexander, who works here in a unique blend of Latin, funk, and soul – but with elements that are way different than the Spanish Harlem grooves of ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ecue – Ritmos Cubanos
Pablo/OJC, 1978. Used
A strangely wonderful Latin set with a very drum-heavy approach! Cuban percussionist Walfredo plays in a large group with Louie Belson on the regular kit and "moog drum" – and the rest of the group features strong Latin players like Francisco Aguabella, Clare Fischer, Emil Richards ... CD

Egrem/Vitral (Cuba), 1983. Used
Early 80s material from this legendary Cuban group! They're working in a mode that relies heavily on traditional forms and rhythms like Son, Bolero and Cha Cha, rather than some of the fiery fusion or hard Afro-Cuban electric funk of their 70s years, but this album reveals a subtle side to the ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Melaza
Chulo, 2014. New Copy
A crack salsa combo from New York – contemporary, but with a very old school vibe – and a really rich sense of arrangement! The group's got two trombones and two trumpets – but arrangements are by pianist Mike Eckroth, who's got a really broad sense of color – and uses the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Gypsy Woman
Fania, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
Stunning soul from the great Joe Bataan – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that's right up there with the best of the Spanish Harlem scene of the late 60s! The album is Joe Bataan's debut for the Fania Records label – and the start of an incendiary run of Latin classics that ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Riot
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A real killer from the legendary Joe Bataan – an album of righteous power that really lives up to the dynamic promise of the title and cover! Joe Bataan's in top form throughout – serving up a blend of Latin grooves and 60s soul influences that few other artists of the time could touch ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good-
Killer Latin soul from one of the all-time greats – a collection of greatest hits from Mongo Santamaria, but a set that's every bit as essential as his full length albums for Columbia! Most of the cuts on the album were arranged by Mongo's key right-hand man – the great Marty Sheller, ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mama Calunga
Fonseca/Andale, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A rare gem from the legendary Fonseca catalog of the 60s – a smoking set from saxophonist Johnny Sedes – a player who really gets to soar on his solos! In a world of brass-led Latin combos, Sedes horn really makes a difference – and brings a strongly jazzy sensibility to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Feeling The Pain
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
One of the weirdest, coolest Latin Soul albums we've ever heard – the only offering ever from the duo of Dianne & Carole – two female singers who come off with a great deal of enthusiasm on the set! That's our way of saying that the ladies are a bit rough on the vocals – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Message
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
One of Ray Barretto's hardest-hitting salsa albums of the 70s – a raw set of grooves that's got Ray moving away from the playfulness of the Latin Soul years, into a more righteous mode that's easily guessed at from the title of the set! The vibe here is very straightforward – with Ray ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
In Line/En Linia
Fania, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A killer bit of Latin Soul – one of the few albums ever recorded by conga player George Guzman, working here with a very cool, very hip, late 60s ensemble! The group sport 3 trumpets, piano, bass, and some very strong percussion – plus vocals in both English and Spanish, which makes ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Tipico
West Side Latino, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
An early 70s killer from Louie Ramirez – and a striking return to traditional styles after his work in the Latin Soul era! Louie shows that he can keep the groove as well as any young salseros, and the record's a mix of tracks done in an early 70s trad groove, with a few more jazzy elements. ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Fonseca/Andale, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
An early cooker from the young Bobby Valentin – a record cut even before his initial outings for Fania, and done with the same trumpet-heavy groove! There's a raw crackle to the set that's mighty nice – not really Latin soul, but the kind of small combo energy you'd find in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Barretto Power
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A great Ray Barretto album from 1972 – one that beautifully showcases the master percussionist as he effortlessly shifts between Latin soul and 70's salsa styles! The group's nice and lean – with Adalberto Santiago on vocals, Papy Roman on trumpet, Louis Cruz on piano, and the great ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Lenni Sesar
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A lost slammer from the Fania catalog of the 60s – the one and only album from the highly dynamic Lenni Sesar! Lenni's got a sound that's quite different from other Latin leaders of his time – very jazzy overall, especially on the uptempo numbers on the set – with a really full ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Camel Walk
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Killer Latin soul! This record is one of the hardest to find from the late 60's boogaloo era, and it's a massive stormer filled with tasty grooves! The band is small and tight, with a 2-sax frontline, for an extra-soulful sound. Vocals are in English and Spanish, and the album wails away like a ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Columbia (Japan), 1965. New Copy
Mongo Santamaria at the height of his Latin Soul years – working on a cool Columbia session titled after an earlier hit, but served up with his new lean sound of the late 60s! The album's got that perfect Santamaria combo from the time – a group that features trumpet and these ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mozambique
Tico, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
An important early album from Eddie Palmieri – one in which he introduces the "mozambique" rhythm – essentially a conga-styled approach to the tune, and one that features a lot more percussion than on his earlier sides! The group that supports him is strong enough to carry ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Young Man With A Horn
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Massive work from the great Bobby Valentin – his first-ever album, issued back when he was a jazzy trumpeter! The record offers the "best in boogaloo" – as the cover states – and features a very mod mix of tunes that really gets at the mish-mash crossover energy of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ali Baba
Fania, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
One of the wildest albums in the history of Latin music – a crazy batch of Latin soul tunes made by Louie Ramirez under the alter ego of Ali Baba! The album starts with Ali saying "I hope you buy this album. I need the bread to buy a couple of camels. You see, I haven't had a hump in ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Hey Sister
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Oooooo-weee – a monster album by one of our favorite talents of the Latin soul era! Monguito Santamaria had a really great way of putting the electric bass right up front in his tracks – kicking things up with a bouncing groove that's as sock-boogaloo as boogaloo can get, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Latin - Soul - Rock
Fania, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Acid
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A monster! If you buy one Latin record this year – make it this one – because it's one of the greatest ever recorded! Ray's late 60s Acid album is a landmark recording – a sublime mixture of Latin jazz, percussion, and soul – grooving hard in a variety of styles, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ralfi
Fania, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Sublime falsetto soul from the great Ralfi Pagan – one of the most unique artists on the New York Latin scene at the start of the 70s! Ralfi shares some of the sweet soul modes of Joe Bataan – when Joe's in the right mood – but he also goes further, too – and really pushes ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Mucho Puente (RCA)
RCA, 1957. Very Good
A nice RCA stormer from Tito, and one that has him hitting a nice jazzy groove on a mix of Latin tunes and standards. Tito plays drums and timbales – and titles include "Ecstasy", "Noche De Ronda", "Tito's Guajira", "Duerme", and "Un Poquito De Tu ... LP, Vinyl record album
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Salsa Fever Orchestra
TH, 1978. Very Good
70s salsa, but with a bit of a nod to the clubs – sort of the same mode the Fania All-Stars were hitting on their Columbia albums of the latter part of the decade, but a bit looser overall! From the cover, you might expect there to be a few Latin Hustle elements on the set – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
