Charlie PalmieriImpulsos (Impulses) ... CD
Coco/Bomba (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $14.99
A fantastic 70s session from Charlie Palmieri – featuring some of his best keyboard solos of the decade, and some very cool work on organ that almost makes us think Sun Ra is in the group! The style is quite unusual, even for Charlie – with a weird sound from his organ that really gives the record an edge – played alongside straighter piano lines, heavy percussion, and lots of warm horn work overall. Charlie's organ really stands out best on the descarga cut "No Esta En Na" and the groovy midtempo "Estoy Friza'o" – but the whole thing's great, and other cuts include "Comelon Hustle", "King Charles", "Dame Tu Corazon", and "Sobando El Piano Merengue".

Ray BarrettoCan You Feel It ... LP
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Sweet sounds from the days when Fania Records was one of the greatest things going on the New York scene – and some of its key artists got a chance to work for other labels! This set's one of the best examples of that moment – as Ray Barretto steps out here in some sweet soulful territory for Atlantic Records – on an album that mixes his Latin roots with warmer soul backings that have the same sort of full, rich sound of the best Atlantic R&B of the time. Ray's conga is still part of the sound – especially on the funkier cuts – but the album's also got some strong soul vocals, too – sung by Prince Phillip Mitchell on one of the album's best cuts, and by Cissy Houston and Googie Coppola on a few others. Tracks include "Sting Ray", "Can You Feel It", "What Part Of Heaven Do You Come From", "Stargazer", and "Confrontation". LP, Vinyl record album

La LupeQueen Of Latin Soul/Reina De La Cancion Latina (remastered edition) ... CD
Tico/Fania, Late 60s. Used ... $14.99
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".

AmbergrisAmbergris ... LP
Paramount, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A genre-busting batch of tunes from Ambergris – a group with styles that range from Memphis soul, to New York Latin, to some of the heavier sides of the underground rock scene of the time! The ensemble features Latin Soul maestro Larry Harlow on piano, organ, and percussion – working with a rock-based group that still has lots of jazzy touches on their instrumentation. Steve Cropper produced the set – but in New York, not Memphis – and the whole thing explodes with a rich range of musical influences, all bubbling together in one pot! Includes the funky rock tracks "Soul Food" and "Forget It I Got It", plus "Endless Night", "Sunday Lady", "Home Groan", "Chocolate Pudding", and "Gotta Find Her". (Rock, Latin) LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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".

El Combo NacionalEsto Si, Es Boogaloo ... LP
Seeco, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
A great boogaloo jammer! These guys are about as obscure as you can get – but that doesn't stop them from turning out some wonderful Latin Soul tunes – jumping percussive rhythms peppered with a lot of piano, and featuring some hard-wailing horn solos that cook up the groove nicely. The album's got a rough edge that makes the playing sound even more compelling than you might think – and it's filled with great numbers like the boogaloo cuts like "Senor Boogaloo" and "Boogaloo Carinoso", plus Latin jazz versions of "Caravan" and "Sunny" that both groove hard!

✨✧ Fania All-StarsLive At Yankee Stadium Vol 1 ... LP
Fania, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
By the mid 70s, the New York Latin scene was boomin' so large it could easily fill venues like Yankee Stadium – as you'll hear on this excellent live set from the Fania All-Stars, a monster record that easily ranks with the best live Latin sides of the time – like Eddie Palmieri at Sing Sing, the Tico-Alegre All Stars at Carnegie Hall, or Mongo Santamaria at Yankee Stadium! Tracks are nice and long – a real mix of soul and Latin, with slight funk and electric touches – and players include Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Bobby Valentin, Mongo Santamaria, Ricardo Ray, and Roberto Roena. Vocals are by a host of singers that include Santos Colon, Hector Lavoe, Ismael Rivera, and Celia Cruz – and titles on this first volume include "Pueblo Latino", "Mi Gente", and "Soy Guajiro".

Grupo XSongs From Our Latin Soul – The Best Of Grupo X ... CD
Loft (UK), 2000s. New Copy ... $8.99
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".

✨✧ Latin SoulsBoogaloo & Shingaling ... LP
Kapp, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
One of the grooviest groups of the Latin Soul scene – but they'd have to be, given their name! The Latin Souls are a vocal group with a really soulful feel – a great link between the earlier harmony sounds that were bubbling under in Spanish Harlem, and some of the hipper rhythms that were hitting the scene in the late 60s – particularly the two dance modes pushed strongly in the title of the record! Many of the cuts have a nicely dark undercurrent – a bit like the best work of Ralph Robles – but the harmonies give the record a somewhat more sincere feel too, with echoes of Joe Bataan in the mix. The whole thing's great – with production from Pancho Cristal that's right up there with his other great Latin sides of the 60s. Titles include "Guajira Controversial", "Que Va", "Hey Lulu!", "The Party Is Over", "Place In the Sun", "La Banda", and the slammin' "Latin Souls Descarga"! LP, Vinyl record album
