A landmark moment in the New York scene of the 70s – and a mindblowing document of the energy and lifestyle of the city's growing Latin scene at the time! The film combines live performances from the legendary Cheetah nightclub with amazing street footage – woven together in a rich tapestry of music and culture that documents the reality of life in Spanish Harlem at the time. Musicians featured include a veritable "who's who" of the New York Latin world – such as Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Johnny Pacheco, Bobby Cruz, Ricardo Ray, Bobby Valentin, and Hector Lavoe – but even without the music, the documentary footage alone makes the film an instant treasure! Spanish language film with English subtitles for the limited narration, with newly remastered sound. Also included are Live At The Cheetah Vols 1 & 2 on 2CDs. Vol 1 is easily one of the best by the group – and features long tracks that really capture the jamming intensity that occurred on stage when this many great artists were brought together in one space. Includes "Introduction Theme (Cheetah)", "Quitate Tu", "Descarga Fania", and "Anaconda". Vol 2 is just as great – and this set includes 3 previously unreleased tracks! Includes "Ponte Duro", "Estrellas De Fania", and "Ahora Vengo Yo" and more – plus the bonus tracks "Cocinando", "Abran Paso Part 1" and "Abran Paso Part 2".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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 ... CD

A roots-oriented 70s classic from Willie Colon – one of his standout albums of the decade! Willie continues his "life of crime" approach for the early 70s – moving into an old west look on the cover, and matching that with a slightly rootsier sound on the album! The real ... CD

Fania, 1969. New Copy

Wild early work from Willie Colon – a record that's equally poised between the Latin Soul and later salsa era, and which features great lead vocals from Hector Lavoe! The album's got some very strong tracks that percolate in Willie's dark trombone-led groove – like the mighty 7 minute ... CD

Latin Jam
Fania/Uniko (Canada), 1965. New Copy
The title's no lie – as the album's one of Pacheo's hardest-swinging albums! The set is miles away from the more composed style of Pacheco's charanga years – and has him really opening up with a descarga style that has lots of jazzy touches. Jose Chombo Silva plays some great tenor on ... CD

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
