Cesar AscarrunzCesar 830 ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $39.99
Lost Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the 70s – and an album that may well blow away better-known work by groups like Malo, Azteca, or El Chicano!

Columbia, 1973. Very Good ... $19.99

✨✧ Ray BarrettoLatino Con Soul ... LP
West Side Latino, Mid 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!

✨✧ Ray BarrettoMessage ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of Ray Barretto's hardest-hitting salsa albums of the 70s – a raw set of grooves that's got Ray moving away from the playfulness of the Latin Soul years, into a more righteous mode that's easily guessed at from the title of the set!

Jack BurgerLet's Play Congas ... LP
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... $19.99

Time, 1962. Very Good ... $24.99
One of the few albums ever issued as a leader by the great Joe Cain – a wonderful Latin arranger with a really mad ear for a groove!
