Joe BataanSalsoul (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $4.99 13.99
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". 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

Clare Fischer with 2+2 PlusFree Fall ... CD
Discovery (Japan), 1986. New Copy ... $21.99
Very groovy work from keyboardist Clare Fischer – a musician we first fell in love with from Cal Tjader albums in the 60s, and continued to love for his MPS Records material in the 70s! Here, Clare's working with the 2+2 vocal ensemble – a gently swinging male/female harmony group that has a similar sound to the Singers Unlimited – warm harmonies that have a sunny, breezy finish alongside Clare's keyboards and the grooves. The production of the tracks is similar to the smooth MPS mode used by that group and Fischer – and there's also electric west coast Latin backing from a Latin jazz group that features Fischer on keyboards. The sound is great if you dig Clare's later electric work – and titles include "Sextet", "Blues Bossa", "Novios", "Samba Claro", "The Quiet Side", and "Free Fall". (Jazz, Latin) CD

La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina ... CD
Tico, Late 60s. Used ... $6.99
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".

Grupo XSongs From Our Latin Soul – The Best Of Grupo X ... CD
Loft (UK), 2000s. New Copy ... $13.99
Nice little retrospective bringing together some of best of UK Latin Soul combo Grupo X! From the beginning, the group's had an incredible knack for blending feverish percussion with the sometimes heavy, sometimes moody horns and unstoppable Latin rhythms of classic styles – from NY salsa to Afro-Cuban grooves – with a thoroughly modern UK live soul vibe, and that has held true on all their records from the early 00s onward. We'd be hard pressed to pick a finer collection ourselves, and the titles include "Brand New Love", "Share It Out", "Get Through To You (2015 mix)", "This Must Be The Place", "Sunshine", "Waiting", "X-Perience", "Won't You Stay?", "Mi Tumbao", "Jonny's Bugulu".
