Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 6

Old school cumbia tunes – with plenty of raw rhythms and acoustic instrumentation in the mix! The package is a wicked batch of rare numbers from Colombia's legendary Discos Fuentes – most of which are from the early and mid 60s, recorded at a time when the imprint was really making some great waves in Latin music – coming up with a regional sound that was quite different than the popular New York modes of the time – and than the host of other scenes that tried to copy it! Instead, the tunes here work in these romping rhythms that really get to the heart of the cumbia vibe – often touched with a blend of jazz inflections and folkloric instrumentation, wrapped up beautifully together. Titles include "Lorenza" by Los Gavilanes De La Costa, "Cumbia Costena" by Alejandro Duran, "Ocaso Marino" by Los Satelites, "La Pollera Colora" by Los Corraleros De Majagual, "Remolino De Oro" by Abel Antonio Villa, and "Al Amanecer" by Los Cumbiamberos De Pacheco.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A contemporary Latin combo, but one with a really unique feel as well – a mix of 60s charanga modes, 50s Cuban roots, and some definite modern phrasing! The group has a really wonderful blend of flute, violin, trombone, tres, and percussion – and congolero Hector "Papote" ... LP, Vinyl record album

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!

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

Tico, 1963. New Copy (reissue)
An excellent set from Willie – recorded in the years before he moved to Verve, with a very different sound! The Willie Bobo here is less of the pop instrumentalist on some of his later sides – and is more of a hard-hitting Latin leader with a heck of a lot of soul. There's an early ...

A landmark album of Afro Soul! Orlando Julius was one of Nigeria's biggest soul artists in the 60s – and has been credited with virtually inventing the Afro Funk sound, and for being the inspiration to some of James Brown's funkier work of the late 60s! Julius came to the US at the end of ... LP, Vinyl record album
