Let's Turn On/Arrebatarnos

LP (Item 373512) Fania, Late 60s — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 6

Stone slamming boogaloo – and one of the greatest albums from a young Bobby Valentin! Bobby's really cooking on all burners here – mixing together a bit of Latin jazz with a headier, trippier style of Latin soul – one that features lots of sinister undercurrents in the rhythms, making for a sense of darkness that's really counterbalanced by the joyous feel of the grooves. This sublime mix can be heard to perfect effect in the amazing "Use It Before You Lose It", a monster track that's sure to fill any dancefloor – but the whole album's wonderful, and other tracks include "Boogaloo y Shingaling", "Keep the Faith", "Funky Big Feet", and "Descarga En Mozambique".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Chant
Prestige/Tru Sound, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
One of the best albums ever recorded by this groundbreaking Latin jazz combo – and a magnificent blend of jazz instrumentation and deeper Latin roots!

Tell It Like It Is!
Decca/El Sonido, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A heck of a great little boogaloo album – and one of the few 60s sides by the legendary Johnny Zamot! Although cut for Decca, the album's every bit as tight and soulful as contemporaneous work for Tico, Fania, or Cotique – and the set features a similar blend of English lyrics, Latin ...

West Side Latino, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A classic set from Hector Rivera – one in which he shifts back to more traditional Latin styles after his Spanish Harlem sets of the 60s!

El Exigente
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning album from Orquesta Harlow – one of their wildest of the 60s, and filled with delights!

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!

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!

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

Heavy Smokin
Fania, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A great early record by Larry Harlow's famous combo – every bit the "smokin" set that the title might imply! Harlow and the group are in full force here – ripping through a set of short tracks that really groove with a darkly percussive edge. There's a surprising amount of ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

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

Alegre, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
