CD


4.70 6

Funky Latin psychedelic soul from Perez Prado from the dawn of the 70s – a totally killer batch that we love from the opening note the last second – and a rare one, to boot! 70 has loads of walloping Latin funk instrumentals, incredibly groovy bits and strains of the psychedelia of the time in the swirling organ and guitar. It's never predictable, taking stylistic left turns into mellower and trippier bits, only to return to the tightly snapping funkier sound. It's a really amazing little record, largely instrumental with a couple of vocal tunes, call & response shouts and soul grunts – with titles that include "Simplemente Maria", "Traces", "Guada Guadaloupe", "Vuelveme A Querer", "Mexico 70", "Los Dos Laredos", "La Octavia Religion", "Fanny Bump","Mambo Bump" and more. (Comes a great little LP style sleeve!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bwana
Acid Symposium, 1972. New Copy
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 ... CD

Encendido
JZ Productions, 2006. New Copy
Salsa with class from congolero Johnny Ray – a set that's got many of the same tight edges used in his 70s work as Johnny Zamot, but which comes across with a sound that's slightly more contemporary overall! The group here features Johnny on congas, plus horns, piano, percussion, and a bit ... CD

Yo Soy Boricua
JZ Productions, 2007. New Copy
Johnny Ray's combo is cooking nicely on this set – steeped in Puerto Rican salsa sounds, but carrying off the music with lightly grooving quality! The instrumentation here includes trumpet, trombone, piano, and percussion – plus a bit of more contemporary keyboards on a few tracks, but ... CD

Reggaeton Con Salsa
JZ Productions, 2007. New Copy
Johnny Ray's got a new groove here – one that takes his older salsa mode and changes it up for the younger generation by bringing in a fair bit of reggaeton rhythms! The backings are often a bit more programmed and electric than Johnny's other records, but there's still a bit of live salsa ... CD

40 Anos De Canonazos
JZ Productions, 2006. New Copy
A mighty tribute to Johnny Ray's many years in music – including his early work as Johnny Zamot – and proof that the percussionist is still one hell of a cooker after all these years! The charts are tight, upbeat, and very jazzy – served up with a really classic feel throughout, ... CD

Columbia/Big Break (UK), 1972. New Copy
A crowning moment for the west coast Latin scene in the 70s – a wonderful Bay Area set that brings together some of the best talents working on that scene at the time! The set's got a great blend of modes – Latin soul, touches of funk, and plenty of the jazzy inflections you'd expect ... CD

Reach Out
Creole Stream (Japan), Early 80s. New Copy
Brilliant brown-eyed soul from Ray Camacho – an artist who was previously known for more border-styled work with his Teardrops band, but who steps out here with a surprisingly great blend of electric jazz and boogie! The approach is wonderful – a real re-direction of Ray's earlier ... CD

Other Sounds (UK), Late 50s. New Copy
50s futurist sounds from the pioneers – Raymond Scott, Jean Jacque Perrey, Edgard Varese and others – early computer grooves, synthesizer experimentalist eeriness and symphonically styled soundscapes! Sci fi sounds, oddly melodic electronics, gigantic computer sounds and living, ... CD

Io E Mara
Easy Tempo (Italy), 1969. New Copy
Wild! Another beautiful release in the Easy Tempo series of lost Italian music from the late 60's and early 70's.
