Ray BarrettoHead Sounds ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
"Head Sounds" is a heck of a great way to describe this album – as it's filled with some of Ray's most mind-expanding cuts! The album kicks off with the tune "Acid", which you probably know from the album of the same name, but which still really does a great job of setting the pace here – and then it rolls into some fantastic longer cuts that really have a very strong jazz component. Ray and the group stretch out tremendously, hitting off-color notes and tones that almost make the record feel like one of Eddie Palmieri's jammers from the same time. 3 tracks on the set are over 8 minutes long, which should give you a good feel of the openness of the work – and titles include "Abidjan", "Espiritu Libre", "Drum Poem", and "Tin Tin Deo".

Willie Bobo & the Bo-GentsDo What You Want To Do ... LP
Sussex, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Incredible work by Willie Bobo – a slamming record of hard funky instrumentals, one that sounds different than any of his other albums! The record's a killer all the way through – a mixture of Latin and deep 70s funk, one of the few perfect fusions of the styles, held up beautifully all the way through the set. We've always liked Willie a lot, but honestly, we don't know how he managed to make a record this funky – but we're also not arguing, just enjoying the grooves with tremendous delight and surprise. Great all the way through, and includes the break cuts "Do What You Want to Do", "Broasted or Fried", and "Soul Foo Young" – plus a version of "Dindi", which, for some reason, Willie seemed to record every chance he got! Other titles include "Shut Up & Pay Attention", "Come Together", and "Never You Mind". (Soul, Latin) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Eddie Cano & His QuintetBrought Back Live From PJ's ... LP
Dunhill, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Stunning stuff – and one of the best-ever Latin soul albums of all time! Despite the fact that Eddie Cano's earlier albums are more in a Latin easy mode, this late 60's side for Dunhill is totally smoking – and probably his greatest album ever! Forgive the superlatives, but we're totally serious on this one – as the set's a firey batch of Latin instrumentals, with a slammin' boogaloo groove all the way through – filled with mad percussion, jazzy piano riffs, and a non-stop groove that's totally great. The set was recorded live at PJ's nightclub, and it's a non-stop Latin Soul party that includes massive originals like "Slip Slip", "Brown & Blue", "Miro Como Es", and "Don't Ever Change" – plus smoking covers of "El Pito" and "Louie Louie". The set screams with excitement, and is as great as the album is rare! LP, Vinyl record album

ChakachasChakachas (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Avco/Music On Vinyl (UK), 1972. New Copy (reissue)... About January 5, 2018 (delayed)
The coolest, funkiest, and most soulful set ever issued by Chakachas – a record that's way different than most of their Latin-based music – with a strong American funk vibe all the way through! There's still lots of percussion in the mix, but it's often used in ways that echo more of a pan-global and African approach – plenty of congas at the bottom, next to some riffing guitars, sweet reed lines, and some occasional strong soulful vocals. The cut "Jungle Fever" isn't on here, but the whole album definitely feels like that one – with that killer sense of spacing and percussion that makes the group really funky on that hit. Titles include the killer "Stories", plus "Oye Mi", "Bantu", "Love Love Love", "Oye Mi Guaguaco", "Soledad", and "By The Way". (Soul, Latin) LP, Vinyl record album

Dianne & CaroleFeeling The Pain ... LP
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the weirdest, coolest Latin Soul albums we've ever heard – the only offering ever from the duo of Dianne & Carole – two female singers who come off with a great deal of enthusiasm on the set! That's our way of saying that the ladies are a bit rough on the vocals – but that's also part of the charm of the set – as the record's got a really messed-up feel, of the sort that we really love from Latin Soul records like this! The great Louie Ramirez handled a good number of the arrangements, with help from Joe Simmons on the other tracks – and many of the numbers have that upbeat, catchy groove that was the Speed label trademark at the time – a sound that was quite different than the modes at Fania or Tico. Titles include excellent tracks "The Fuzz" and "Latin Rhythm" – plus "Feelin' The Pain", "I See the Lovelight", "The Boy Across The Street", "Water Brown", and a hip cover of "Do You Know The Way To San Jose". Very groovy stuff! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Kako's After Hour OrchestraTributo A Noro Morales ... LP
Alegre, Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An amazing album that's one of the greatest-ever descarga sessions to come out of the New York scene! The album's supposedly a tribute to pianist Noro Morales – but it's got a fire and energy that goes way beyond even Morales' best work, one that has the group recording in a long-format approach that was very different, and much harder-jamming than any of Morales' recordings from the 50s. The tracks are mostly Morales originals, but you'd hardly recognize them in the way the band takes off from their simple structure – using the room of the full recording to groove hard on the album's best long tracks – "Mi Guajira", "Ponce", and "Vitamina" – all of which are the kind of Latin jammers you buy reissues like this for! Players include Louie Ramirez, Charlie Palmieri, Cachao, and Hector Rivera – and other tracks include "Perfume De Gardenia", "Desvelo De Amor", and "Malditos Celos". LP, Vinyl record album
