Joe BataanSalsoul ... CD
Salsoul/Unidisc (Canada), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
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 the bonus track "Continental Square Dance"! CD

CandidoDancin' & Prancin' (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy ... $8.99
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)".

LibreCon Salsa . . . Con Ritmo – Vol 1 ... LP
Salsoul, 1976. Very Good+ ... $33.99
A fantastic bit of 70's Latin jazz by the great Manny Oquendo and his legendary Libre group. The sound is prime 70's New York, and the record's filled with great players like Andy Gonzalez, Dave Valentin, Ronnie Cuber, Milton Cardona, and Marty Sheller, who does the arrangements. The record's got a great version of Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee", done in a Latin medley with "A Gozar Y Bailar". Other tracks include "Saoco", "Risque", "Lamento Borincano", and "Bamboleate".

✨✧ Joe BataanMestizo ... LP
Salsoul, 1980. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best later albums from Joe Bataan – a really wonderful little set that takes off strongly from the salsoul experiments he first began on the Afrofilipino album! The album's got a great blend of clubby rhythms and Latin soul touches – all arranged by Marty Sheller, and carried off by Joe with soulful vocals that still retain a fair bit of the heartbreaking qualities of the older days. There's a punch and funky undercurrent here that was often missing from other Salsoul albums – and titles include the great "Rap O Clap O", which is kind of a remake of Cheryl Lynn's "To Be Real" – plus "Sadie (She Smokes)", "Mestizo", "Rock Me All Night Long", and "Latin Lover".

✨✧ CandidoDancin' & Prancin' ... CD
Salsoul/Charly (UK), 1979. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Candido's big disco album for Salsoul, and for some fans, as great of a record as any he ever made! Candi had already experimented with funk a lot during the early 70s, so he was in prime form to groove with the Salsoul crew on this set, which took a basic Latin funk form and expanded it a lot with disco touches. Includes a club remake of "Thousand Finger Man", plus "Dancin & Prancin", "Jingo", and "Rock & Shuffle". 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

✨✧ VariousRough Guide To Latin Disco ... CD
Rough Guide, Late 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 14.98
Funk and soul meet Latin rhythms – and the result is a really special moment in the New York scene – a time when disco rhythms helped the underground scene burn brightly in the midtown clubs! Back in the 60s, nightspots in the city would routinely host Latin bands – but by the disco generation, much of the Latin action had retreated uptown – until grooves like these got things going again in a whole new light – returning the artists to a wider audience through a swirling blend of strings, jazzy instrumentation, and soulful vocals! The style's one that was so strong back in the day, it's had plenty of power over the years – and the set here also brings together some later variants of Latin disco from around the globe. Titles include "Sunny" by Yambu, "Salsoul Hustle" by Salsoul Orchestra, "La Botella" by Joe Bataan, "Dancin & Prancin" by Candido, "C'Mon Baby Do The Latin Hustle" by Jose Fajardo, "Combate A Kung Fu" by Wganda Kenya, "Latin Lover" by Joe Bataan, "X-Perience" by Grupo X, "Firewalker" by Jungle Fire, and "Everlasting Love" by Los Charly's Orchestra.

✨✧ BatacumbeleBatacumbele – Con Un Poco De Songo ... LP
Tierrazo, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really smoking jammer from Puerto Rico – cut by a group who could effortlessly mix salsa and more traditional rhythms – in an extremely lively mode that made the best use of production and arrangement changes at the time! In a way, the album reminds us of some of the "new traditional" work on Salsoul/Mericana from the mid 70s – in that at times, it's got a heavy rootsy feel, thanks to lots of great percussion – but at other times, it's got a freer, jazzier, and more fluid groove that takes off nicely. Instrumentation include "guiro jibaro", Fender Rhodes, organ, bass, trumpet, flute, and lots of percussion – plus chorus vocals on many tracks. Titles include "Se Le Va", "La Jibarita", "A La I Ole", "Batacumbele", and "La Piye". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSon Cubano NYC – Cuban Roots New York Spices 1972-1982 ... CD
Honest Jons/Astralwerks, 1970s/Early 80s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The rebirth of the Afro-Cuban groove on the New York scene of the 70s – a dozen recordings in the "new traditionalist" sound of the time! After the boom of the Latin Soul sound of the late 60s, and the rise of salsa in the early 70s, there was also a "back to basics" movement within the players of the New York Latin community – a shift that stripped down the sound, reintroduced traditional instrumentation, and worked in rhythms that might have been used on older sessions, but which were slightly updated for the newer recordings. The work of that period, although strong, has often been overlooked in favor of some of the flashier sounds of the scene – and this set wonderfully corrects that fault by bringing together a great sampling of work from the traditional spectrum of the Salsoul and SAR record labels, along with the kind of notes and commitment to quality that makes the Honest Jon's reissues so great! Titles include "Son Sabroson" by Rey Roig, "Cuchillo Para La Pina Cubana" by Charlie Rodriguez, "Chocolate En C7" and "Trumpet En Montuno" by Chocolate, "Oriente" and "Tiene Sabor" by Henry Fiol, "Yo Perdi El Corazon" by Lita Branda, "Camina Y Ven Pa La Loma" by Roberto Torres, "Celosa" by Angelo Y Su Conjunto Modelo, and "Los Dos Hermanos" by Los Jimaguas.
