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
Amazing sounds from the Puerto Rican scene of the 60s – a key link between the music of Cuba and New York – and an outlet that became even more important after the fall of Havana! Back in the day, there was steady traffic between San Juan and uptown New York – as styles traded, ... CD
