Willie BoboJuicy (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Hard soulful Latin from the great Willie Bobo! The record's an extremely tasty blend of cuts that mix hard Latin grooving with a swinging 60s pop feel – all filtered through the crossover genius of late 60s Verve. There's lots of great boogaloo groovers, shing-a-ling rhythms, and a tight no- ... read more CD

CachaoCachao y Su Descarga 77 Vol 1 ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), 1977. New Copy ... $21.99
An excellent batch of descarga tunes – very much in the same spirit as Cachao's groundbreaking Cuban work of the early 60s – but done here as a wonderful return to roots in the mid 70s – part of that key shift back towards tradition on the New York scene, yet one that was still ... read more CD

Blue Corn Music, 2015. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
That's a mighty trippy cover on this album from Grupo Fantasma – and it kind of sums up the more expansive, experimental sound the group is taking this time around – an approach that mixes their Latin roots with bits of psych, funk, and a whole range of global elements too – all ... read more CD

La Fantastica2001 ... CD
Mericana/Octave (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $21.99
The only album we've ever seen by this cool New York combo of the 70s – quite a shame, as they're really cooking on all levels – with the kind of youthful energy that matches some of their best contemporaries during the early Latin years of the Salsoul label!

La Playa SextettePachanga Cha Cha Cha – Anyone? ... CD
Mardi Gras, 1965. New Copy ... $12.99 13.98
Pachanga? Cha Cha Cha? We'll take it – especially with results this great!

Orlando MarinOut Of My Mind ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $19.99
A Latin Soul classic – but one that's a lot more obscure than some of the better-remembered albums on Fania and Tico from the late 60s! Orlando Marin is probably mostly known as an arranger, and a leader from the earlier years of the New York scene – but during the Latin Soul years he ... read more CD
