Joe BataanSalsoul ... LP
Mericana, 1973. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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".

✨✧ TierraTierra (Salsoul) ... LP
Salsoul, 1981. Used ... Out Of Stock
The first Salsoul album from Tierra – a great west coast Latin soul combo who followed strongly in the tradition of Malo and El Chicano! Like those groups in their later years, Tierra's focus here is more on tunes that have a mellow-grooving soul approach – still Latin in some of the instrumentation, rhythms, and phrasing – but also aimed at more of a crossover soul market, and sung with a great East LA appreciation for a gentle harmony. Titles include "Stranded", "Baila Simon", "Land Of The Free", "Don't Be So Sure", "Some Kind Of Woman", "Knowing You Loving You", and the great groover "Sun God", which has a wicked mix of electronics and congas!

✨✧ Grupo Folklorico Y Experimental NuevayorquinoLo Dice Todo ... LP
Salsoul/Mericana, 1976. Very Good- ... $9.99
The second album by this wonderful Latin music project – an ensemble who really live up to their name in the way they work with both folksy styles and more experimental modes – all while hitting the best sort of hip New York 70s vibe! The list of artists here is like a "who's who" of some of the hippest on the scene at the time – percussion from Jerry Gonzalez, Virgilo Marti, and Milton Cardona, timbales from Manny Oquendo, trumpet from Chocolate Armenteros, bass from Andy Gonzalez, and violin from Alfredo De La Fe – who work in a shifting array of musicians who bring new life and energy to each track, in a way that's even more focused and spirited than the group's debut! But like that record, there's plenty of long percussive passages here – definitely rootsy elements, but handled with a more modern sensibility – on titles that include "Cinco En Uno Callejero", "Dime La Verdad", "Aguemimo", "La Mama", and "Trompeta En Cuero".

LibreIncreible ... CD
Salsoul/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1981. Used ... $18.99
A very well-titled set from Libre – as the group were one of the more incredible acts on the New York scene of the 70s – always a bit more underground than the salsa mainstream, and able to easily bridge so many generations with their music! Leader Manny Oquendo has a great ear for unusual sounds – and finds a way to blend contemporary jazzy currents with some deeper Afro-Cuban rhythms – with a sound that's both holding to tradition, but able to really push things forward – without some of the more reactionary tendencies found in some of his scenemates. The quality of the musicians is one of the great strengths of the record – as the set features work from Dave Valentin on flute, Jerry Gonzalez on congas and trumpet, and Papo Vasquez on trombone – under the direction of bassist Andy Gonzalez, who handles arrangements with Marty Sheller and Luis Cruz. Titles include "Tracionera", "Decidete", "Yo No Vuelvo Contigo", and "Goza La Vida". CD

✨✧ Joe BataanSaint Latin's Day Massacre ... LP
Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

✨✧ VariousTani – Disco Rumba & Flamenco Boogie 1976 to 1979 ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Late 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Funky disco from 70s Spain – a wonderful collection of upbeat, hard-grooving titles that owe plenty to the sound of New York and Philly – but which also have their own sort of groove too! There's elements here that take off from the early 70s Spanish rumba mode of blending flamenco roots with more soulful elements – as many of these tunes have strong guitar flourishes, and these soaring vocals that are certainly inspired by the older modes – but also set to the kinds of rhythms, basslines, and strings that you'd hear from the American disco indies at the time – which makes for a fantastic blend of sounds that's completely unique! The only thing that might come close is Charo's record for Salsoul, but all this work is way better than that album – and titles include "Ahora Que" and "Ya Estoy Parao" by Rumba Tres, "Yo Me Siento Muy Feliz" and "Esta Noche Te Perdi" by Sangre Gitana, "Estrella" by Los Gachos, "Oye Chiquilla" by Tobago, "Puedes Buscarte Un Nuevo Amor" by Barracuda, and "Mala" by La Marelu.
