✨✧ VariousSoul Of Spanish Harlem – Beautiful Soul Music From The Heart Of New York's Spanish Harlem ... CD
Fania/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
One of the hippest sets we've ever seen on Spanish Harlem – a collection that goes way past the Latin Soul hits, to dig deep in the uptown underground at the end of the 60s! The package is compiled with gems from the Fania catalog, but rally moves past the obvious – going for some of the more obscure artists who recorded singles for some of the smaller Fania-held labels – and often focusing on tunes that drew more from late 60s soul and funk than they did from any Latin rhythms of the time. The singers are especially wonderful – and often hit a vibe that's right up there with some of Joe Bataan's best of the period – richly soulful, but often deeply personal too – never as polished as chart soul, and often showing a grittier, more realistic style that's totally great – especially when mixed with instrumentation as tight as this! Titles include "Reflections Of My Life" by 125th Street Candy Store, "On Old Broadway" by 107th Street Stickball Team, "Don't Be Afraid" by Lebron Brothers, "Central Park" by Harvey Averne Dozen, "Heaven" by Tito Ramos, "Your Smile" by Parris, "Some Lonely Heart" by Ronnie Marks, "There's No Girl" by Olivieri, "Maria Maria" by King Nando, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Nitty Boo Boo" by The Nitty Sextette, "Lonely Has Been My Day" by Ralphie & The Latin Lovers, "I'm Gonna Leave You" by Russell Cohen & The New Yorkers, and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Ralfi Pagan.

✨✧ Tito RamosWhere My Head Is At ... CD
Cotique, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic late Latin Soul by Tito Ramos – one half of the TNT Band, stepping out here on his own with a really mindblowing style! Tito's "head" was definitely at the same point as many soul artists in the early 70s – on one hand, concerned with the fate of the world, and hitting a more righteous vibe, but on the other, also getting sweet and mellow on some great ballad/harmony styled tracks. The mellow tracks are really the best – with a fragile approach that sits well next to Joe Bataan and Ralfi Pagan's Latin soul work of the period – and all of the lyrics on the set are in English, giving the album a bit wider-ranging appeal. Tracks include "Let Me Tell You (Where My Head Is At)", "She's Been Hurt Before", "Did Anyone", "So You Need Someone", and "Heaven (Is Not For Everyone)". CD
(Out of print. Front insert has some small stains on the back.)
