Pacheco & Pete 'El Conde' RodriguezLos Compadres ... LP
Fania, 1972. Very Good ... $11.99
About as tight as you can get from the team of Pacheco and vocalist Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez – a record cut after a strong run of sides from Pacheco's Nuevo Tumbao, a finely-honed unit that moved with supple grace few other groups could match!

Coco, 1974. Very Good ... $11.99
A great little record from Charlie Palmieri – and one of his oddest! The "electro" in the title refers to a strange tinny organ that Charlie plays on many cuts on the record, a cool little instrument that gives the songs a nice twist.

If there's anything Eddie isn't, it's straight ahead – as even a basic session like this bristles with free thinking energy!

A 70s masterpiece from Eddie Palmieri – a brilliant set of Latin tracks with a modern jazz edge that's really astounding!

A great little salsa session – issued in kind of a cheapo cover, but with some of Eddie's best grooves of the 80s! The album's got a great jazzy touch, and the rhythm section is excellent – very subtle, and with a dark edge that works perfectly with Eddie's piano solos. Most tracks ... read more CD

Coco, 1975. Near Mint- ... $24.99
Eddie Palmieri's work for the Coco label is some of his best of the 70s, and this album is no exception – and while the title may call the record "unfinished", it sounds pretty darn well done to our ears – far better than most other Latin sides of the time!

The genius of Eddie Palmieri never seems to dim at all as the years go on – and, if anything, the genius only seems to flower even more – finding new ways of expression that maybe even blow away some of Eddie's classic work from the 60s and 70s!

Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo ... LP
Alegre, 1967. Very Good ... $19.99
Very groovy work – and one of the best-selling albums of the Latin Soul era! During the 70s, Ricardo Ray was best known for his salsa work – but back in the 60s, he was really swinging around in the early blend of boogaloo and shing-a-ling styles! The set's got a really frenetic feel ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo Vol 2 ... LP
Alegre, 1968. Very Good+ ... $14.99
An amazing follow up to Ricardo Ray's first album of Jala Jala and Boogaloo tracks – a real killer Latin soul set that's even better than the first!

Ricardo RayOn The Loose – Se Solto ... LP
Alegre, 1966. Very Good- ... $29.99
One of the first albums ever from Ricardo Ray – a really sharp-edged set that's quite different than any of his later work with Bobby Cruz! The groove here is a mix of Latin jazz and boogaloo modes – a really strong sound that draws heavily on Ray's bold piano lines, and which also ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Vaya/Fania, 1971. Used ... $14.99
One of the real standouts in the career of Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz – a record of incredible tightness, and one that set a whole new level for Puerto Rican salsa in the 70s! There's still a few traces here of the Latin Soul years – sometimes in the rhythms, at other times in the ... read more CD

United Artists, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $11.99
Hard grooving salsa tracks, with a bit of Latin Soul thrown in for good measure! The album includes the sublime "part 2" version of "Trumpetman", one of Ray's best groovers from the late 60s, and an excellent party Latin tune – plus the tracks "Wakamba", "Ba ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo Ray/Bobby CruzLos Durisimos ... LP
Alegre, 1968. Very Good+ ... $11.99
The hard ones serve up a great blend of Latin soul, late 60s pop, and some heavy-hitting touches!

Cotique, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $34.99
Heavy duty Latin Soul from Johnny Rivera – an excellent bandleader from the late 60s, with a sound that's a lot harder than you might guess from the Tijuana Brass in the title!

A dreamy album of Latin instrumentals, played by pianist Marco Rizo and his orchestra, in sort of a pop-Latin sound with a nice easy sound.

An incredible record and very unique – cut around the same time as Arsenio's rare boogaloo album for Tico Records!

One of our favorite 70s albums by Bobby Rodriguez – mostly for the first two tunes on the set!

A fantastic album of soulful jazz – and one that's got a lot more staying power than the macrame craze of the 70s! Don't confuse this Bobby with the Rodriguez who put out some mid 70s salsa albums on Vaya in New York – because this Bobby's a trumpet player from the LA scene, one who ...
