LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 6

The "quad" here seems to be mostly conceptual – but the "live" part of the set is definitely in place! The album's a real stormer – one of the best mid 70s sides from Larry Harlow's excellent group, recorded in front of a small but enthusiastic crowd, and done with the same sort of energy as the best live albums on Fania at the time – a cooking sort of energy that connects that musicians and the audience wonderfully, and shows the sheer raw power of New York Latin during these legendary years. There's some really great live tracks on the set – including the massive 11 minute "Descarga Final" – worth the price of the record alone – the percussive "Tumba Y Bongo", and the cuts "Mayari" and "Jovenes De Muelle". Other tracks include "La Cartera", "Gracia Divina", and "Senor Sereno". (Multi-colored label pressing. Cover has a piece of clear tape on the spine.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

ABC, 1959. Very Good
One of the grooviest early albums recorded by Candido – done way before his later funky sides, and served up with plenty of unusual touches that set it apart from the usual 50s Latin set! Candi's very much in front of the arrangements on congas – hitting hard with a percussive fury ... LP, Vinyl record album

Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Stone lost Latin funk! This one's Candido's rarest – and it's a killer batch of conga-heavy grooves, recorded in the late 60s for Solid State, and featuring a very groovy set of mod Latin arrangements by Joe Cain. The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos ... LP, Vinyl record album
