Louie RamirezIn The Heart of Spanish Harlem ... LP
Mercury, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $59.99
One of THE killers of the Latin soul years – and a record that sometimes doesn't always get its due because it was issued on Mercury, not one of the New York indies! But don't let that association fool you, because this record's every bit as hard – if not harder than – any of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

An early 70s killer from Louie Ramirez – and a striking return to traditional styles after his work in the Latin Soul era!

Chollo Rivera & The Latin Soul DrivesBy Chollo ... LP
Cotique, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An obscure classic from the Latin Soul generation – the standout set recorded by the young Chollo Rivera and his strangely-named group The Latin Drives!

A killer set of heavy Latin numbers from the great Hector Rivera – hiding under the guise of a simple dance record!

Numero, Mid 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $20.99 24.99
Really wonderful work from the Texas scene of the 60s – not the heady psych or garage usually associated with the state, nor the more Latin-inflected modes from the border – but instead a unique batch of music that feels more like work from either coast, and which comes across with a ...

Tico, Early 60s. Very Good ... $68.99
A great lost album of Latin jazz – played by legendary flautist Mauricio Smith!
