✨✧ Ray BarrettoEl Ray Criollo ... LP
United Artists, 1966. Very Good+ ... $39.99
Ray Barretto just before the Latin Soul era – working in the excellent style he used on his Charanga Moderna album – a choppy groove that has plenty of weird twists and turns – always rhythmic, and always plenty darn soulful! The instrumentation here is a mix of small combo jazz ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – in great shape, save for one very short click in one spot. Cover is great!)

✨✧ Jack Bongo BurgerLet's Play Bongos ... LP
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Near Mint- ... $13.99
A very groovy little set – bongos, with lots of great spare moments – presented under the auspices of a percussion instruction record! Jack "Bongo" Burger was similar to Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanza – that is, he was a west coast studio player who also made a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jazzman (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $25.99 29.99
A killer collection of work from percussionist Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo – a cat who's way cooler than you might guess from his gimmicky nickname – not only one of the most powerful forces on the west coast Latin scene in the 50s, but also one of the jazziest too! Jack's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes a very cool "How To Play Bongos" instructional booklet – replicating one that was included in one of Jack's classic albums!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Fania All StarsLatin Connection ... LP
Fania, 1981. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A full-on set from the mighty Fania All-Stars – a session that matches some of the larger arrangements of their Columbia Records albums, but which also returns the group to more of a salsa-focused groove! Tracks are somewhat short – none of the jam sessions of the group's earliest ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ IrakereIrakere ... LP
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
A landmark album from this powerhouse Cuban group of the 70s – their first record issued formally to an American market, and quite possibly their greatest effort of the decade! The sound here is a lot more focused than on the group's Cuban sessions from previous years – not commercial ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Lat-TeensBuena Gente/Good People ... LP
Cotique, 1968. Sealed ... $9.99
Good people, these Latin Teens – a very cool group that was young enough to not worry about names or labels, and who jammed in the best open-ended style of the time! As their name might imply, the group was mostly made up of kids – and as such, they had kind of a freewheeling approach ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has a small cutout hole.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Hector LavoeRevento ... LP
Fania, 1985. Good+ ... $1.99
A beautiful little record from Hector Lavoe – one deepens his sound and emotion, but manages to do so without going into any schmaltzy territory! Some tracks here are full-on groovers, and others are mellower – but even these have a depth of feeling that really commands our attention ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Fania/Sonotec Columbian pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Jose Mangual & Carlos ''Patato'' ValdezUnderstanding Latin Rhythms Vol 1 ... LP
Latin Percussion Ventures, 1974. Sealed Gatefold ... $19.99

Tower, Mid 60s. Near Mint- (reissue)... $9.99
A very unique little record – and one with a sublime blend of Latin, soul, and vocal styles! The record's a fair bit more sophisticated than most other efforts like this from the 60s – thanks to a strong batch of talents that includes Gil Fuller on arrangements, Phil Moore III on piano ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tito RodriguezTito Tito Tito ... LP
United Artists, 1968. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A better Tito Rodriguez session than usual – one that's got 2 great descarga tracks! The album features the cuts "Descarga Cachao" and "Descarga Malanga" – both of which are hard-hitting, fiercely-jamming tunes that really push past the usual Latin fluff of Tito's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 60s pressing!)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
✨✧ Mongo SantamariaUp From The Roots ... LP
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good ... $7.99
A really surprising turn in the career of Mongo Santamaria – especially after a run of successful mainstream Latin sides for Columbia and Atlantic! The album's definitely "up from the roots", and features Mongo in a percussion-heavy exploration of older Afro-Cuban rhythms – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $26.99
A second wonderful look at the world of female pop in Spain – a nation that's not gotten nearly the same sort of global exposure over the years! We've stocked plenty of groovy French pop, in many formats – and even Italian gal pop has gotten lots of play recently – but the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
