A seminal bit of 70s Latin from Eddie Palmieri – a full, rich session that really earns the "sun" in its title! Eddie's working here in that complicated approach to jazzy rhythms from the later Tico years – inflected by a bit of straighter salsa rhythms – in a style that proved that it never hurt to put a bit of intellectual approach in the grooves! The album's got one wonderful standout track in the 14 minute long "Una Dia Bonita" – a massively complex number that initially features some really dark, spare piano – but then has Eddie stretching out a highly progressive groove. Players on the set include Victor Paz, Ronnie Cuber, and Jose Rodriguez – and the album also features a bit of vocals from Lalo Rodriguez. Other tracks include "Mi Cumbia", "Nada De Ti", "Deseo Salvaje", and "Nunca Contigo".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Drum Fever
Polydor, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
One of Candido's funkiest albums! The record's got a similar sound to Candido's great albums for Blue Note and Solid State – with short, hard funky tunes that have a really great 70s edge! Chico O'Farrill did the arrangements, and the record chops along nicely with some very funky tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bwana
Caytronics, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
An insanely wonderful bit of Latin funk! The groove is super heavy, and falls somewhere in between NuYorican soul and Chicano Power rock – with a sound that's pretty close to Black Sugar, but a little bit more psychedelic, due to the heavy guitars and keyboards in the grooves. Hard congas ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ali Baba
Fania, Late 60s. 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!

Latino Con Soul
West Side Latino, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Killer material from the mid 60s – recorded for United Artists after Ray's initial watusi work for Tico – and in a similar style that has mixes together Ray's Charanga Moderna sound with some more boogaloo and Latin Soul numbers! The record's a key bridge between these two chapters of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boogaloo Blues
Cotique, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark record that should be in any Latin collection! At the time of this album, Johnny Colon was a young trombonist just getting his start – working in the turbulent late 60s Spanish Harlem scene, and picking up on the wide range of styles going down in the hood. At one level, he was a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Great obscure boogaloo album recorded on Decca (and if you know this stuff, you know how hard the Decca albums are to find!) The record indeed lives up to the title in its excitable moments, with some firey playing and an all around propulsive atmosphere, but there are also some pretty delicate ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavyweight
Freestyle (UK), 2013. New Copy
A definite heavyweight set from Frootful – one that's every bit as funky as before, but which also shows the group picking up some new flavors too! At the core is some tight deep funk energy that makes the whole thing crackle – and there's also a great blend of different soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Unity Is Power
Elevation/Pressure Sounds (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best records ever by Joe Higgs! Higgs is one of classic reggae's best songwriters and one of it's most distinctive voices – having written for, performed with or simply influenced some of the biggest names in the game – but his own great records didn't really crossover to ...

Tribal Ghost
No Business (Lithuania), 2013. New Copy
The set's got a really beautiful sound – one that comes from the ringing guitar tones of Garrison Fewell, and the twin reeds of John Tchicai and Charlie Kohlhase – each of whom plays in a different channel of the recording! This approach gives the record a great sense of space from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
