✨✧ Joe BataanSalsoul (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Joe Bataan – so great, that it made the entire record company change its name! The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny". CD features bonus tracks – "Continental Square Dance", "Latin Strut (mono single)", "Peace Friendship Solidarity (mono single)", "Aftershower Funk (mono single)", and "Fin (mono single)". CD

Joe BataanAfrofilipino ... LP
Salsoul, 1975. Good+ ... $14.99
An amazing crossover moment of the 70s Latin scene! During the 60s Joe Bataan had been experimenting with the many different mode of Latin Soul – crossing over styles in a way that not only reflected his complicated roots, but which also tried to break Latin music out of the small uptown market it was getting locked into. On the album before this one, Joe coined the term Salsoul, which he used to describe his unique mix of salsa and soul – which on this record also gets a bit of an infusion of disco, which was a brilliant move by Joe, and broke the album out of the ghetto, onto dancefloors around the world. The centerpiece of the record is Joe's funky cover of Gil Scott-Heron's classic "The Bottle" – but just about every track is great, and there's loads of excellent titles like "Chico & The Man", "Women Don't Want To Love Me", "X-Rated Symphony", "When You're Down (Funky Mambo)", and remakes of older Latin Soul tunes "What Good Is A Castle" and "Ordinary Guy". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around – especially as his music moved into the 70s – but here, he really takes off with some sublime disco arrangements – full clubby grooves that are some of the best Salsoul sounds of the time, yet which still leave plenty of room for Candi's congas! The congas participate in the rhythms at every level – and often take on a nice solo spotlight too – and all tracks are nice and long, with killers that include a club remake of "Thousand Finger Man", plus "Dancin & Prancin", "Jingo", and "Rock & Shuffle". CD features a massive amount of bonus tracks – more than on the album – with gems from singles that include "Jingo (original 12" version)", "Thousand Finger Man (12" ext version)", "Jingo (Shep Pettibone mix)", "Thousand Finger Man (single)", "Jingo (single)", and "Jingo (inst)".

Joe BataanLatin Funk Brother ... CD
Fania/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1967/1972. Used ... $22.99
Some of the most soulful Latin tunes ever recorded – brilliant work by Joe Bataan, the self-styled Latin Funk Brother who forever changed the course of the music! The tracks on the set date from Joe's late 60s and early 70s sides for Fania – pre-Salsoul work that had Joe working in a variety of styles that blended together Latin rhythms and influences from American soul – including doo wop harmonies, sock-soul lyrics, and some unbelievably touching ballad styles. This set's a great introduction to Joe's work – with more soul than the funk in the title might imply, but extremely great stuff nonetheless! Titles include "Cry", "Ordinary Guy", "It's A Good Feeling (Riot)", "Shaft", "Johnny's No Good", "Make Me Smile", "Chili Beans", "Special Girl", "Too Much Lovin", "Gypsy Woman", and "I'm Satisfied".

✨✧ Joe BataanSaint Latin's Day Massacre ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A real turning point for Joe Bataan – and the beginning of his funky Latin sound of the 70s! The album was one of the first in Joe's "Salsoul" style – a sweet blend of Latin rhythms, late 60s Latin soul influences, and some of the hipper styles bubbling through the NuYorican scene. A few cuts are in the sweet soul ballad mode of Joe's earlier years – but there's others that pick up the groove nicely, and add in some guitar and vibes for a sweet electrified groove. Includes a great remake of "Theme From Shaft", plus the two-part "I Wish You Love", "If I Were A King", "Coco E", "El Regreso", and "Charangaringa". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charanga Chicago/Eddie Drennon & Charanga SoulCharanga Chicago/Eddie Drennon & Charanga Soul ... CD
Alma, 1977/1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A really sweet charanga session from the 70s – one that mixes in some of the warmer instrumentation of the Latin disco generation, but which still keeps most of the older styles intact! The result is a really unique set – an album that has some of the clubby elements you'd find on Salsoul, mixed with the sort of elements you might find on the Fania or Vaya labels – as violin and percussion mix with warmer keyboard lines and guitar. Eddie Drennon put the project together – and it's definitely got elements of his other soulful work from the time – and titles include "Raindrops", "Descarga", "Isn't She Lovely", "Son Montuno Instrumental", and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life". CD also features four more tracks from Eddie Drennon in a similar mode – "Soul Montuno", "Proud Mary", "Llego La Charanga", and "Theme From Taxi". CD
