Columbia, 1963. Near Mint- ... $24.99
One of Joe's best albums from the 60s, and a lively batch of Latin tracks done up in some of the favorite flavors of the day – pachanga, bolero-cha, bossa nova, and the weirdo "wobble-cha"!

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

Chuy ReyesRhumbas – Arthur Murray Favorites (10 inch LP) ... LP
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $2.99
Although this one was issued as part of the cheesy Arthur Murray dance series on Capitol, it's actually got a great set of rhumba tracks played by Chuy Reys and his orchestra.

Ricardo RicoDance The Merengue With Killer Joe ... LP
Tico, 1956. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Very early merengue sounds from Ricardo Rico – served up with an earthy blend that really gets to the root of the genre!

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! The set's got equal parts soul and equal parts Latin – in a way that's similar to some of Joe Bataan's albums for Fania from the same ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie RodriguezLa Versatilidad De Freddie Rodriguez ... LP
United Artists, 1967. Very Good ... $9.99
As the title might imply, this is a varied set of grooves from Latin guitarist Freddie Rodriguez. Some of the tracks are more like pop guitar instrumentals, with an electric 60's feel to them. But the best cuts are some nice Latin groovers, with a good hard sounds from Freddie's guitar, and a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Atco, 1968. Very Good ... $39.99
A wicked batch of Latin groovers from Willie Rosario – one that takes all the energy of his rare indie sides from the 60s, and fuses it with the tight approach to Latin Soul being hipped up by Atlantic at the time!

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaDock Of The Bay ... LP
Harmony/Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good ... Just Sold Out!
Smoking Latin soul from Mongo! This one's issued on Harmony, the budget label of Columbia – and we're never sure if it's an exclusive album, or a collection of tunes from other Mongo sides on Columbia. Who cares, though? The music's so tasty, and the grooves are so heavy, we can never get ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

One of Mongo Santamaria's best albums from the 70s – and one of his funkiest too!
