A landmark moment in the New York scene of the 70s – and a mindblowing document of the energy and lifestyle of the city's growing Latin scene at the time! The film combines live performances from the legendary Cheetah nightclub with amazing street footage – woven together in a rich tapestry of music and culture that documents the reality of life in Spanish Harlem at the time. Musicians featured include a veritable "who's who" of the New York Latin world – such as Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Johnny Pacheco, Bobby Cruz, Ricardo Ray, Bobby Valentin, and Hector Lavoe – but even without the music, the documentary footage alone makes the film an instant treasure! Spanish language film with English subtitles for the limited narration, with newly remastered sound. Also included are Live At The Cheetah Vols 1 & 2 on 2CDs. Vol 1 is easily one of the best by the group – and features long tracks that really capture the jamming intensity that occurred on stage when this many great artists were brought together in one space. Includes "Introduction Theme (Cheetah)", "Quitate Tu", "Descarga Fania", and "Anaconda". Vol 2 is just as great – and this set includes 3 previously unreleased tracks! Includes "Ponte Duro", "Estrellas De Fania", and "Ahora Vengo Yo" and more – plus the bonus tracks "Cocinando", "Abran Paso Part 1" and "Abran Paso Part 2".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
