Treasure Hunt

CD (Item 539046) Essential, Early 70s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 6

A lost classic from Pearly Queen – definitely a record that's been a true treasure hunt for crate diggers over the years! The set's best-sought for its funkier numbers – about half the set, in which Pearly Queen smoke nicely with a blend of Cuban roots and 70s modes – showing a nice sort of criss-crossing of Latin modes, with qualities that you might normally find in the LA scene – but pitched a bit here towards a south Florida sort of groove! Lyrics are in English and Spanish, and there's a great sense of variety in the grooves – as you'll hear on cuts that include "Alta Mira", "Move On", "Pachanga En Sepia", "El Reloj", "Super Star", and "Jungle Walk". (This is an on-demand title printed in limited quantities.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
