MaloDos ... LP
Warner, 1972. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
A seminal bit of Latin funk from the Bay Area scene of the early 70s – the second album from Malo, and an even harder-hitting jam session than the first!

Tito PuenteCuban Carnival ... LP
RCA, 1956. Very Good+ ... $19.99
One of Tito Puente's finest albums for RCA, with a tight hard bunch of cuts that have a Cuban big band sound, and a lot more drive to them than some of Tito's other work for the label.

RCA, 1957. Very Good+ ... $5.99
It's easy to cha cha when Tito Puente's in the house – especially when he's working in his near-perfect RCA mode of the late 50s!

Tito Puente with AzuquitaCe Magnifique ... LP
Fania/Tico, 1980. Very Good+ ... $9.99
This one's got kind of a campy cover, but it's a surprisingly great little set – not the Parisian-styled record you might expect from the title and image, but a crackling set of New York salsa played by Tito Puente with vocals by Azuquita!
