Joe BataanAfrofilipino ... LP
Salsoul, 1975. Good+ ... $14.99
An amazing crossover moment of the 70s Latin scene! During the 60s Joe Bataan had been experimenting with the many different mode of Latin Soul – crossing over styles in a way that not only reflected his complicated roots, but which also tried to break Latin music out of the small uptown market it was getting locked into. On the album before this one, Joe coined the term Salsoul, which he used to describe his unique mix of salsa and soul – which on this record also gets a bit of an infusion of disco, which was a brilliant move by Joe, and broke the album out of the ghetto, onto dancefloors around the world. The centerpiece of the record is Joe's funky cover of Gil Scott-Heron's classic "The Bottle" – but just about every track is great, and there's loads of excellent titles like "Chico & The Man", "Women Don't Want To Love Me", "X-Rated Symphony", "When You're Down (Funky Mambo)", and remakes of older Latin Soul tunes "What Good Is A Castle" and "Ordinary Guy".

Joe BataanLatin Funk Brother ... CD
Fania/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1967/1972. Used ... $22.99
Some of the most soulful Latin tunes ever recorded – brilliant work by Joe Bataan, the self-styled Latin Funk Brother who forever changed the course of the music! The tracks on the set date from Joe's late 60s and early 70s sides for Fania – pre-Salsoul work that had Joe working in a variety of styles that blended together Latin rhythms and influences from American soul – including doo wop harmonies, sock-soul lyrics, and some unbelievably touching ballad styles. This set's a great introduction to Joe's work – with more soul than the funk in the title might imply, but extremely great stuff nonetheless! Titles include "Cry", "Ordinary Guy", "It's A Good Feeling (Riot)", "Shaft", "Johnny's No Good", "Make Me Smile", "Chili Beans", "Special Girl", "Too Much Lovin", "Gypsy Woman", and "I'm Satisfied".

Joe BataanLost Sessions – New York 1976 ... CD
BGP (UK), 1976. New Copy ... $14.99
Joe Bataan working in a pronounced dancefloor soul mode! While the legendary Bataan was no stranger to the fusion of Latin, soul and funk, this some of the most club soul oriented sounds from Joe we've ever heard – and the sessions are seeing official release for the first time ever! The recording feature players who worked on Joe's stellar Afrofilipino and features a backdrop of wonderful Afro and Latin percussion and rhythms with the best sounds of the NYC dancefloor soul in the mix – with uptempo and midtempo vocal numbers flirting with disco and modern soul very nicely – with solid lead vocals and groovy female backup! Most tunes bring a bit of harp into the mix for a little more of a soar that plays off the percussion in really cool way. Titles include "Sadie", "When We Get Married", "My Cloud", "I Need Love", a take on the Isaac Hayes "Theme From The Men", "Let Me Kove You", "My Opera" and "I Do Love You". CD

✨✧ Joe BataanMr New York & The East Side Kids ... LP
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Amazing work from the Spanish Harlem underground of the late 60s! From the title, to the cover, to the beautiful blend of songs, this album perfectly sums up the rich energy and raw power bubbling in the NuYorican scene of the time – effortlessly blending together soul, Latin, jazz, and funk – making the whole thing work perfectly because that's the way it was! These cats didn't know anything about rules – at least not until the big bad older Latin mafia snapped them in place – and the result is a freewheeling album of hard grooving jammers and sweetly emotive soul tunes! Tracks include "Puerto Rico Me Llama", "Make Me Smile", "Es Tu Cosa", "The Prayer", "Aguanta La Lengua", and "Chili Beans". LP, Vinyl record album

Two of Joe Bataan's greatest soul tracks ever! "Crystal Blue Persuasion" was a big hit for Joe, and is a moody Latin soul cover of the big hit. "Ordinary Guy" is even better, and features some of the saddest soul lyrics you'll ever hear! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Joe BataanRiot ... CD
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy ... Around August 10, 2014 (delayed)
A real killer from the legendary Joe Bataan – an album of righteous power that really lives up to the dynamic promise of the title and cover! Joe Bataan's in top form throughout – serving up a blend of Latin grooves and 60s soul influences that few other artists of the time could touch – soaring and upbeat one minute, but mellow and laidback the next. There's a number of longer tracks on here that really move past the standard Latin Soul modes – bringing in bits of descarga jazz, instrumental soul, and mellower ballads to Joe's already-great blend of styles. The depth here is tremendous, and nearly every track's a winner! Titles include the slamming "It's A Good Feeling (Riot)", "Muneca", and "Mambo De Bataan" – plus the soul tracks "What Good Is A Castle", "My Cloud", "Daddy's Coming Home", "Ordinary Guy", and "For Your Love".

Fania, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of our favorite Latin soul albums ever – a rollicking mix of upbeat party tracks, gentle ballads, and more – all handled with the undeniable magic that is Joe Bataan at his best! The album kicks off with the fantastic groover "Subway Joe" – a hilarious tune about Joe trying to find a seat on the subway – and it rolls into killers like "Nuevo Jala Jala", "Juanito", "Ponte En Algo", and the wonderfully emotive "Special Girl". There's a really wonderful quality to all the tunes – honest, open, and done with instrumentation that includes lots of dark passages, yet which also continues to flower in hope! A landmark, and a record that delights us again and again over the years! LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Stunning soul from the great Joe Bataan – a really groundbreaking mix of modes that's right up there with the best of the Spanish Harlem scene of the late 60s! The album is Joe Bataan's debut for the Fania Records label – and the start of an incendiary run of Latin classics that forever changed the face of the New York scene – a mindblowing mix of Latin rhythms and soul-based inspiration, served up in a mix of English and Spanish language lyrics! The title track is a sublime cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Gypsy Woman" – one that's even more heartbreaking than the original – and other titles include "Ordinary Guy", Sugar Guaguanco", "So Fine", "Fuego", and the groovy "Chickie's Trombone" – a tight little jammer that shows that Joe's group also drew plenty of inspiration from the descarga scene too.

Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A real turning point for Joe Bataan – and the beginning of his funky Latin sound of the 70s! The album was one of the first in Joe's "Salsoul" style – a sweet blend of Latin rhythms, late 60s Latin soul influences, and some of the hipper styles bubbling through the NuYorican scene. A few cuts are in the sweet soul ballad mode of Joe's earlier years – but there's others that pick up the groove nicely, and add in some guitar and vibes for a sweet electrified groove. Includes a great remake of "Theme From Shaft", plus the two-part "I Wish You Love", "If I Were A King", "Coco E", "El Regreso", and "Charangaringa". LP, Vinyl record album

Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A landmark album from Joe Bataan – so great, that it made the entire record company change its name! The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny". CD features bonus tracks – "Continental Square Dance", "Latin Strut (mono single)", "Peace Friendship Solidarity (mono single)", "Aftershower Funk (mono single)", and "Fin (mono single)". CD

Anvil BandAnvil Band ... CD
Free Spirit/Octave (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... $21.99
A killer lost disco album – a way better club set than you might expect! The group looks extremely silly on the cover – ridiculously so, in fact – but the record's a stunning batch of jazzy club tracks with a mostly instrumental groove, and a very tight feel – not at all the schlock that the photo might make you guess. Joe Bataan wrote many of the tracks, and the record almost feels like an extension of his classic Afrofilipino groove – especially his own work for the Salsoul label. Titles include "Samba", "The Tunnel", "Let's Dance", "Sadie", "Continental Square Dance", "I'll Be True", and Vince Montana's Philly groover "Nice Vibes"! Also features a version of Isaac Hayes' "The Man". CD

New Swing SextetBest Of New Swing Sextet ... CD
Rareza (Colombia), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99
Incredibly groovy work by one of the coolest combos of the Latin Soul era – the mighty New Swing Sextet, a youthful band of musicians who never fail to please! The group have a sound that's very much in the best boogaloo/shing-a-ling mode of more famous artists from the scene at the time – like Johnny Colon or Joe Bataan – but they've also got a unique sound of their own, with a lot more jazz, thanks to heavy use of vibes on a number of tracks, which moves their groove into Cal Tajder territory at times. Some cuts have soulful English language lyrics, and the mix of these words and the groovy vibes gives the group a wonderful wonderful sound. CD features 22 tracks in all – really all the best bits pulled from their key albums for Cotique – and titles include "My Baby Couldn't Wait", "Monkey See Monkey Do", "The Monster", "El Bongo", "Vente Pa Ya", "Coquero", "El Tiroteo Bang Bang", "El Nuevo Swing Les Toca", "Al Son", "Recuerdos De Rafael", "La Rumba Se Acabo", and "Pico Swing".

The second album from Seguida – a great little Latin funk group from the Nuyorican scene of the 70s! This set's got Seguida working in a style that's got a bit more of a dancefloor focus than before – bringing in some of the fuller Latin disco touches that were popular in the wake of Joe Bataan's 70s hits – but also going for a groove that keeps all the group's best soulful elements nicely in tact! The style is smooth, but still has plenty of great instrumentation that includes lots of great fusion jamming – handled with some nice jazz and funk touches on the album's best cuts! Titles include "Om Marreo", "Buscando", "Next To You", "Fields Of Laughter", "Yo Nunca Te Olvidare", and "Finale In B Flat Major". CD

BGP (UK), Mid 70s. Used ... $6.99
A tight collection of uptempo funk and disco-driven soul tunes – with a selection that goes way past the usual dancefloor favorites! We're not sure how to read the title (which seems to have some sort of "inside take" on black culture in America) so we'll write that off to the overzealous imagination of the British compilers of the set – but we will say that the package includes some great numbers that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise, including a few previously unissued tunes by artists on the Westbound label! The groove is upbeat on most tracks, with plenty of jazzy flourishes and a soulful approach to disco. Titles include "Disco Booty" by Melvin Sparks, "Love Don't Come Easy" by New Jersey Connection, "I Need Somebody To Love Tonight" by Sylvester, "Free Man" by South Shore Commission, "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" by The Clark Sisters, "Latin Disco" by The Counts, "Alvin Stone (The Birth & Death Of A Gangster)" by Fantastic Four, "Moon Trek" by Mike Theodore, "Sadie" by Joe Bataan, "Sure Can't Go To The Moon" by CJ & Co, and "The Magic Man" by King Errison.

As with the previous entry in this series, the sound here is plenty darn soulful throughout – lyrics that are often in English, and rhythms that borrow heavily from American funk and soul of the late 60s – mixing African-American musical styles with Puerto Rican and Cuban elements – all to come up with a groove that's as fresh today as it was back in the Spanish Harlem scene of the time! Previously unreleased tracks include "Evil Ways" by Pete & Louie, and the full length version of "O Elefante" by Ray Barretto – and other tunes include "Rise Up" by Orchestra Harlow, "Safari" by Tito Puente, "Revolucionando" by New Swing Sextet, "Times Are Changing" by Jimmy Sabater, "MC2" by Willie Colon, "Crystal Blue Persuasion" by Joe Bataan, "Musica Del Alma" by TNT Boys, "Here Comes The Judge" by Pete Rodriguez, "Ape Walk" by Al Escobar, and "Rat Race" by Ralfi Pagan.

The compilation features a brilliant batch of tracks from the 70s – mostly underground soul, jazz, and funk tunes that have yet to appear on reissues, chosen by UK DJ Dean Rudland, with a feel that's as righteous and progressive as the title might imply.

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 ... $14.99
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.

A Latin monster – and one of our favorite albums from the New York scene! The record is the only one we've ever seen from pianist Earl Coleman – and it's a groove-happy fiesta that's every bit Spanish Harlem at its best. Earl's piano is flowing and free, and the band grooves through tracks that dip, turn, and soar like some of the best hard-jamming numbers from Joe Cuba, Ray Barretto, or Joe Bataan from the time. Some tracks feature soulful English vocals, and the titles alone should give you the feel of the set – "Hippy Heaven", "Latin Love-In", "Banana-Loo", and "What You Gonna Do". LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest reissues to come from the newly-invigorated Fania Records – a brilliant exploration of the sound of Latin Soul that broke hard in the New York scene at the end of the 60s! The package is equally heavy on the "soul" as it is on the "Latin" – so alongside the expected boogaloo and shing-a-ling styles, you'll also find a fair number of tracks that have a much more soul-based style – a sound that echoes the modes going down in African-American culture at the time, but which comes off slightly different here – thanks to some unusual rhythms, instrumentation, and production techniques! The track list goes way past the obvious and overly-familiar – thanks to great compilation efforts by Adrian Gibson, Dean Rudland, and Lubi Jovanovich, who also wrote the notes. Titles include "Do You Feel It" by Joe Cuba, "Big T" by Tito Ramos, "Johnny's No Good" by Joe Bataan, "Brother Where Are You" by Ralfi Pagan, "Black Brothers" by Tito Puente, "Either You Have It Or You Don't" by Charlie Palmieri, "New York Soul" by Ray Barretto, "Si Dame Tu Amor" by Cafe, "Boogaloo Lebron" by Lebron Brothers, "Que Se Sepa" by Roberto Roena, "Red Garter Strut" by Fania All Stars, "Puerto Rican Soul" by Pete Bonet, and "Measure For Measure" by Alexander Review.

Sublime falsetto soul from the great Ralfi Pagan – one of the most unique artists on the New York Latin scene at the start of the 70s! Ralfi shares some of the sweet soul modes of Joe Bataan – when Joe's in the right mood – but he also goes further, too – and really pushes things into the best New Jersey/Philly mode of the period, while still hanging onto some Latin rhythms too. Most numbers have a harmony group behind Pagan's soaring lead – and the instrumentation has some sweet electric touches that mix in a bit of funk with the Latin, too. Ralfi chose some great material this time around, too – and the album features versions of "Too Late", "Brother Where Are You", "Bottom Line", and "Wonderful Thing". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousEl Barrio – Latin Disco – Dancefloor Grooves With A Latin Touch ... CD
Fania, 1970s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very different side of the sound of Fania Records – tracks that draw heavily from the club and disco rhythms of the New York scene of the 70s, but serve up the music with a sweet little Latin twist! The set really illustrates the evolution of Latin Soul from the 60s – showing a generation of artists who were equally willing to draw from the styles of their African-American contemporaries on the scene, but in different ways than the Latin artists of a decade before! Most tracks still have a fair bit of Latin percussion in the mix (it's no secret that Latin rhythms were a big influence on 70s disco) – and the selection of cuts is really wonderful – way past the obvious, and in ways that are different than other collections of this nature, including the Nuyorica classics on Soul Jazz. Titles include "Waterbed" by LTG Exchange, "Dance Dance Dance" by Orquesta Novel, "To Be With You" by Jimmy Sabater, "Good Times" by Charanga 76, "Salsa" by Louie Ramirez, "Mambo Rock" by Seguida, "Afro Hustle" by Lou Perez, "Call Me" by Joe Bataan, "Es Un Demonio Ella" by Fausto Rey/Larry Harlow, "My Love Supreme" by Milton Hamilton Crystalized, "Wata Wasuri" by Tito Puente, and "Johnny's No Good" by WRLC.
