Joe CubaWe Must Be Doing Something Right (Estamos Haciendo Algo Bien) ... LP LP format
Tico, Mid 60s. Very Good- ... $18.99
The group were certainly doing something right – as this album has Joe Cuba's sextet at the top of their game, easily showing why they were one of the best groups on the New York scene of the 60s! The album's a pivotal one in the development of Latin Soul – as it sports the incredible track "El Pito" – one of those Latin jammers that grabbed everyone right away, and which has barely ever been matched since! The album's also got some great use of English language lyrics – crucial to the unique crossover sound that Joe was forging, and a real bridge between Spanish and African American Harlem in the 60s. Titles include "My Wonderful You", "El Pito (I'll Never Go Back To Georgia)", "Pruebalo, OK?", "Bochinchosa", "Incomparable", and "Clave Mambo". LP, Vinyl record album
(Vinyl is clean, with light marks. Cover is decent.)

New VariousBeginners Guide To Cuban Music (3CD box set) ... CD CD format
Nascente (UK), 2009. New Copy 3CD ... $12.99
Cuban music makes a mighty comeback here – in a well-done 3CD set that explores some of the freshest sounds in a variety of genres! Each disc features a slightly different theme – CD 1 is cuts in the classic son mode, CD 2 features Cuban salsa and timba, and CD 3 shows a strong absorption of sounds from beyond the borders – including a fair bit of hip hop and Caribbean elements in the rhythms! As with others in this "introduction to" series, you get a hell of a lot of music for the price – 43 tracks on 3CDs, with titles that include "Hay Madresita" by Felix Baloy, "El Rejol De Pastora" by Grupo Sierra Maestra, "Manteca De Corojojo" by Calle 23, "Cienfuegos Tiene Su Guaguanco" by Cienfuegos Allstars, "Princesa" by Calle Real, "Tranquilo Mota" by Los Van Van, "La Temba" by Charanga Habanera, "La Madre Maria" by Tirso Duarte, "No Vengas" by Papo Record, "La Maestra" by Cubanito 20.02, "Rebuelo" by Philipsman, "Toca Me" by Instincto, and "Conga Latina" by El Gremio.

VariousPalenque, Palenque! – Champeta Criolla & Afro Roots in Colombia 1975 to 1991 ... CD CD format
Soundway (UK), Late 70s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy ... $10.99 16.98
A killer collection of champeta work from the Caribbean coast of Colombia – music that still has plenty of local touches, but also shares a lot with African imports of the time – a really unique little hybrid that makes for plenty of heavy rhythms! The sound is quite unique – a slight echo of more familiar Colombian music at points, but often a more full-on approach to rhythm – with plenty of heavy percussion at the bottom, driving Afro rhythms, and some occasional Caribbean touches in terms of the production – which can make things nicely trippy at just the right points! Soundway have done a great job of introducing us to this unique genre – thanks not only to a wicked selection of tunes, but also a full complement of notes and photos, which really open up our understanding of the music. Titles include "Yoro" by Wganda Kenya, "El Scususu" by La Nelda Pina, "Tetero" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Esclavo Moderno" by Manuel Alvarez Y Sus Sangers, "Bumburumbumbum" by Cassimbas Negras, "Naga Pedale" by Cumbia Siglo XX, "Pim Pom" by Wganda Kenya, "Tetero" by Cumbia Moderna De Soledad, "Palenque Palenque" by Son Palenque, and "Shacalao" by Lisandro Meza & Su Conjunto.

La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina ... CD CD format
Tico, Late 60s. New Copy ... Around August 1, 2014 (delayed)
While Pete Rodriguez and Pete Terrace were battling it out for the "King Of The Boogaloo" title – La Lupe went ahead and dubbed herself "The Queen Of Latin Soul"! Oddly, though, the album's less of a strict Latin Soul effort than you might guess from the title – and is more of a mix of different modes, including some more heartfelt ballads that were more typical of Lupe's work – sung here with that heartfelt sense of soul that's most likely the real reason for her claim to the title! Arrangements are by Hector DeLeon, and bring a good focus on Lupe's incredible vocals through creative use of strings and percussion. Titles do include a Latin Soul version of "Fever", plus more traditional Latin tunes that include "Amor Gitano", "Aun", "Negruna", "Este Ritmo Sabroson", "Soy Sonerita", "La Tirana", and "Busamba".

New VariousIt's A Scream How Levine Does The Rhumba – The Latin/Jewish Musical Story 1940s to 1980s ... CD CD format
Idelsohn Society, Late 40s/1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest collections of Latin music we've ever seen – and one of the first to really demonstrate the importance of the Jewish market during the postwar years! The New York scene wasn't just fed by a hotbed of Cuban and Puerto Rican customers – and Jewish listeners were a key part of its success in the 40s, 50s, and 60s – especially as a rising middle class found new time to enjoy itself both at clubs in the city and resorts up in the Catskills! The Jewish/Latin connection has been a big part of recording from the start – no real secret to anyone who's been buying Latin records for years – but this package goes out of its way to bring it all into sharp focus, with a really big booklet of notes, and a revolutionary selection of tracks that traces different elements through a variety of different Latin styles, plus a few other genres as well. Easily one of the most playful, powerful packages so far from the excellent Idelsohn Society – with 41 tracks that include "Exodus" by Ray Barretto, "Hava Nageela" by Celia Cruz, "El Molestoso" by Eddie Palmieri, "Cheek To Cheek" by Candido, "Arriba (part 1)" by The Barton Brothers, "Miami Beach Rhumba" by Xavier Cugat, "Matzoh Ball Merengue" by Jonny Conquet, "Pan Amor Y Cha Cha Cha" by Abbe Lane & Tito Puente, "My Yiddishe Mambo" by Mickey Katz, "Cucaraca Macara" by Harvey Averne, "Just Another Guajira" by Mark Weinstein, "America" by La Lupe, "Twist Of Hava Nageela" by Perez Prado, "Loco" by Don Tosii with Raul Diaz, and "Raleigh Riff" by La Plata Sextet.

New Perez PradoMambo Mania ... LP LP format
RCA, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
Jazzy mambos from the king – and easily the most successful of Perez Prado's albums for RCA in the 50s! The album showcases the Latin mode that Prado crossed over big with on his hit "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White" – a tune that almost single-handedly grabbed the energy and audiences of the late swing years, and grafted them onto the growing New York Latin scene of the time! Prado's got that great growl in his chants, as usual – pushing the band to even more rhythmic heights and brassy horn flourishes with his trademark calls – and titles include the classic "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White", as well as tracks like "Tomcat Mambo", "Mambo Ala Kenton", "The High & The Mighty", "Marilyn Monroe Mambo", and "Skokiaan". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light wear.)
