✨✧ Ruben BladesFrom Panama To New York ... LP
Alegre, 1970. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Ruben Blades's first album – recorded shortly after his arrival in New York from Panama, with top-notch backing by the band of Pete Rodriguez! The album's an interesting one, in that it catches Ruben shortly before the salsa era, singing in a mix of styles that reminds us of some of Jimmy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Cabrerita Y Sus IdeasExplorando El Ambiente ... LP
Alegre, 1974. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Great work from this sharp Latin trumpeter – working here in a combo that also features tenor from Crispin Fernandez and trombone from Barry Rogers – plus vocals from Joan Cornel! Cabrerita arranged and produced the whole thing – and titles include "Te Voy A Punchar", ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has light wear, and light tape on the top seam – but this is a nice copy overall.)

✨✧ Cabrerita Y Sus IdeasSobre Salsa ... LP
Alegre, 1972. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A mad little album put together by producer Joe Cain – and featuring the Ideas group of trumpeter Cabrerita! Cabby's got a sound that's pretty full-on – often blowing for all he's worth, and really taking things over the top of the tunes. The album's got one 6 minute descarga number ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Angel CanalesSabor (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Alegre/Craft, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99 28.99
Possibly the greatest album ever from Angel Canales – a 70s salsa classic through and through, and one with great links between the New York scene and Canales' Puerto Rican roots! The tunes are wonderfully heartfelt throughout – sung with a youthful sense of soul that's far different ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriAdelante, Gigante ... LP
Alegre, 1975. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
A 70s corker from Charlie Palmieri – and a record that has him stretching out from piano, playing a bit of organ, and a bit of Fender Rhodes! The tracks are relatively straight salsa, but the use of these different keys really gives them an edge – one that's honed even further by Bobby ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriEither You Have It Or You Don't/Hay Que Estar En Algo ... LP
Alegre, 1967. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
One of Charlie's best albums of the 60s – a hard-wailing session that's one of his few straight Latin Soul efforts! Charlie really lets loose with a bouncy groove on the whole set – bringing in lots of English language lyrics, and giving the whole thing a nice party feel that pushes ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Nice 60s pressing, with Sterling stamp – vinyl and cover are nice.)

✨✧ Charlie PalmieriEl Gigante Del Teclado ... LP
Alegre, 1972. Near Mint- ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent – and hard-to-find – album by Charlie from the early 70s! The album features Charlie's focus opening up a bit more, with longer tracks, more complicated arrangements, and some very nice unusual touches – like organ, melodica, and electric bass. Charlie's work on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original 70s pressing – a nice copy!)

✨✧ Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo Vol 2 ... LP
Alegre, 1968. Very Good+ ... $28.99
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! The record's got a full-on style that kicks in from the very first note – a blend of uptight Latin tracks and some very groovy 60s-styled ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(60s pressing. Cover has light wear, and a piece of tape on the top – vinyl is nice.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Ricardo RayLet's Get Down To The Real Nitty Gritty ... LP
Alegre, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $38.99 44.99
A very wild album from Ricardo Ray – sort of a mix of Latin soul styles in the mode of work by Mongo Santamaria, but a lot more messed up! The album's got a number of 60s soul covers – but they're done here by Ricardo in kind of a party Latin mode, touched with a bit of garage soul ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing – a great copy! Label has a small bit of pen, and cover has a small cutout hole – but this is a great copy overall.)

✨✧ Ricardo RayOn The Loose – Se Solto ... LP
Alegre, 1966. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Ricardo Ray/Bobby CruzIn Orbit ... LP
Alegre, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of the hardest-hitting records from Ricardo Ray and Bobby Cruz – a key link between Ricardo Ray's late 60s boogaloo, and his later salsa classics with Bobby! The album grabs us right away – with a stunning descarga track called "Ricard Ray In Orbit" – bubbling over ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Mon RiveraMon Y Sus Trombones (aka Que Gente Avirigua) ... LP
Alegre/Vaya, 1976. Near Mint- ... Out Of Stock
70s issue of this classic – a great blend of Puerto Rican roots and some of the more sophisticated modes going down in the New York scene of the 60s – and a classic pre-salsa album from Mon Rivera! Rivera's got a small combo here who represent the hippest Alegre players of the time ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Alegre, Late 60s. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
Oh That's Nice – indeed! Pete Rodriguez and crew serve up one of their best albums ever – a non-stop boogaloo party that gets you from the word "go"!
