Good – The Bad – The Ugly

LP (Item 551910) Fania, 1975 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 6

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 difference is the presence of Yomo Toro – who plays cuatro on the album, and gives it a sound that stretches back to earlier Afro-Cuban styles – a groove that's a lot more rootsy, mixed in with the soaring salsa style of Colon in the 70s. Lead vocals are by Willie, Hector Lavoe, and Ruben Blades – and arrangements are by Marty Sheller and Willie. Tracks include "Toma", "Dona Tona", "Potpourri III", "Cua Cua Ra, Cua Cua", "I Feel Campesino", and "Que Bien Te Ves".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Bennito Sextet Plus One
Mardi Gras, 1968. New Copy (reissue)
Boogaloo – and nothing but! This is the kind of groovy Latin soul record you always hope to find when digging for Latin sides – and it's got that perfect mix of soul vocals and sock-boogaloo grooves that some of the best young combos were turning out in the late 60s.
