Cosa Nuestra

LP (Item 370209) Fania, 1972 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 6

A monster album of 70s salsa – and one that has bad boy Willie Colon taking the Latin world by storm – forging the new sound that would push him and the New York scene into the frontline of 70s Latin! Willie's got a strength on the set that's very much in keeping with his machine gun pose on the cover – a no-nonsense salsa groove that's overflowing with righteous pride and youthful energy – consciously aware of its new direction, and not afraid to show it! The album features the classic dancefloor groover "Che Che Cole", plus the tracks "Lo Me Llores Mas", "Sonero Mayor", "Sangrigorda", "Ausencia", and "Te Conozco".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
