Brilliant early work from a young Willie Colon – a true hustler if there ever was one! The album has an amazing energy that really bridges a number of Latin scenes – it's part descarga jamming, part Latin soul, and part traditional Latin – put together with a no-nonsense approach that makes the whole thing come off like magic. A young Hector LaVoe is on lead vocals, but the real star here is the group – who have a lean, mean, stripped-down sound that's really great! Includes the jammer "The Hustler", plus "Eso Se Baila Asi", "Havana", "Guajiron", "Montero", and "Que Lio".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Fania, 1975. New Copy (reissue)
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing work from the Spanish Harlem underground of the late 60s!

Tell It Like It Is!
Decca/El Sonido, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A heck of a great little boogaloo album – and one of the few 60s sides by the legendary Johnny Zamot! Although cut for Decca, the album's every bit as tight and soulful as contemporaneous work for Tico, Fania, or Cotique – and the set features a similar blend of English lyrics, Latin ...

Lenni Sesar
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A lost slammer from the Fania catalog of the 60s – the one and only album from the highly dynamic Lenni Sesar! Lenni's got a sound that's quite different from other Latin leaders of his time – very jazzy overall, especially on the uptempo numbers on the set – with a really full ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hard Hands
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
Killer stuff all around! This album's a monster – one of Ray's greatest, with the same sort of Latin Soul groove heard famously on his classic Acid LP. The record has Ray cutting across many genres – blending Latin, soul, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – all into a set of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Young Man With A Horn
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Massive work from the great Bobby Valentin – his first-ever album, issued back when he was a jazzy trumpeter! The record offers the "best in boogaloo" – as the cover states – and features a very mod mix of tunes that really gets at the mish-mash crossover energy of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

In Line/En Linia
Fania, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
A killer bit of Latin Soul – one of the few albums ever recorded by conga player George Guzman, working here with a very cool, very hip, late 60s ensemble! The group sport 3 trumpets, piano, bass, and some very strong percussion – plus vocals in both English and Spanish, which makes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hey Sister
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Oooooo-weee – a monster album by one of our favorite talents of the Latin soul era! Monguito Santamaria had a really great way of putting the electric bass right up front in his tracks – kicking things up with a bouncing groove that's as sock-boogaloo as boogaloo can get, and which ...

Heavy Smokin
Fania, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
A great early record by Larry Harlow's famous combo – every bit the "smokin" set that the title might imply! Harlow and the group are in full force here – ripping through a set of short tracks that really groove with a darkly percussive edge. There's a surprising amount of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)
A real turning point for Joe Bataan – and the beginning of his funky Latin sound of the 70s! The album was one of the first in Joe's "Salsoul" style – a sweet blend of Latin rhythms, late 60s Latin soul influences, and some of the hipper styles bubbling through the NuYorican ...

Take A Trip Pussycat
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A wild wild album of Latin soul – one of the maddest albums ever recorded for the legendary Speed label!
