Nice one! This set's a great mix of Chicano grooves from the early 70's – and despite the "rock" in the title, the sound spans the gamut from jazz
fusion, to Latin funk, to full on jamming! You may know some of the bands on the set – like Black Sugar, Sapo, and Azteca – from reissues or originals we've gotten in, but there's also a lot of groups that you'll have a darn hard time finding elsewhere. Like Soul Jazz
's fantastic NuYorica sets, this one's an overstuffed set of material, filled with essential cuts that define a classic sound, and full notes on the music which are a treat to newcomers and old fans alike. Get set as Soul Jazz
once again dig into the past, and come up with a soon-to-be-classic set of grooves that includes "Been Had" by Sapo, "Mira Pa Ca" by Chango, "Sun God" by Tierra, "Ron Con Con" by El Chicano, "Raomona" by Toro, "Viajecito" by Black Sugar, "Butterfly" by Benitez, and "Chauca" by The Antiques. Great stuff, great notes, and a real treat throughout!
