Fania All-StarsFania All Stars (aka Latin - Soul - Rock) ... CD
Fania, 1974. Used ... $22.99
Import issue of this great later Fania All Stars LP. After a disasterous attempt at recording a live show, the Fania All-Stars went in the studio with guests like Billy Cobham and Manu Dibango and created their funkiest album of the seventies. Although a few cuts are more Latin sounding, some of these tracks have a nice hard funky jazz feel, and sound like they could have been recorded for Prestige. There's great versions of "Soul Makossa" and "Viva Tirado", plus a very nice track called "Smoke". Also includes "Chanchullo", "There You Go", "Mama Guela", "El Raton" and "Congo Bongo". CD

Fania All-StarsLive At The Cheetah Vol 1 ... LP
Fania, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
Killer early work by the Fania All Stars – caught live at the legendary Cheetah club, which was the heart of the New York salsa scene at the start of the 70s! The album is easily one of the best by the group – and features long tracks that really capture the jamming intensity that occurred on stage when this many great artists were brought together in one space – kind of the "next step" for the older descarga mode put forth at the start of the 60s, pushed forward into the prouder, more unified Latin scene of the 70s! All Stars on this date include Ray Barretto, Larry Harlow, Bobby Valentin, Willie Colon, Johnny Pacheco, and others – and titles on this first volume include "Quitate Tu", "Descarga Fania", and "Anaconda".

Fania/Wagram (France), 1975. New Copy ... $12.99
By the mid 70s, the New York Latin scene was boomin' so large it could easily fill venues like Yankee Stadium – as you'll hear on this excellent live set from the Fania All-Stars, a monster record that easily ranks with the best live Latin sides of the time – like Eddie Palmieri at Sing Sing, the Tico-Alegre All Stars at Carnegie Hall, or Mongo Santamaria at Yankee Stadium! Tracks are nice and long – a real mix of soul and Latin, with slight funk and electric touches – and players include Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Bobby Valentin, Mongo Santamaria, Ricardo Ray, and Roberto Roena. Vocals are by a host of singers that include Santos Colon, Hector Lavoe, Ismael Rivera, and Celia Cruz – and titles on this first volume include "Pueblo Latino", "Mi Gente", "Diosa Del Ritmo", and "Soy Guajiro".

Fania All-StarsSpanish Fever ... LP
Columbia, 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99 39.98
A fresh new groove from The Fania All Stars – one that definitely has them picking up some of the Spanish elements mentioned in the title – the fusing them into the tight mix of Latin, club, and jazz they were doing at Columbia Records in the late 70s! These new elements are often light – a bit of acoustic guitar here, maracas there, or some slightly different rhythms – and they're warmed up nicely by the mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation used by the group – who are definitely at the height of their disco powers here! Core players include Papo Lucca on keyboards, Nicky Marrero on timbales, Johnny Pacheco and Roberto Roena on percussion, and Bobby Valentin on bass – and other players include Hubert Laws on flute, Eric Gale on guitar, Luie Ramirez on vibes, and Luiz Perico Ortiz on trumpet. Vocals are by Ismael Miranda, Pacheco, and Ruben Blades – and titles include "Spanish Fever", "Que Pasa", "Space Machine", "Donde", "Your Sereneness", and "Sin Tu Carino". LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Latin soul party – beyond compare! The album's a completely wonderful live set that really captures the energy, excitement, and warm sociability of the hip New York scene at the end of the 60s. The music is stunning – a freewheeling blend of jazz, soul, and Latin themes – played with effortless ease by a lineup that includes Joe Bataan, Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Larry Harlow, Bobby Quesada, Louie Ramirez, Ralph Robles, and some of the other heavy-hitters of the Latin soul years. (Just imagine trying to get so many jazz or rock talents together on one stage – it would never happen!) The album's incredible – and even the spoken introductions and crowd noise really help set the feel of the era's mighty magic power! Titles on this second volume include "Kikapoo Joy Juice", "If This World Were Mine", "Richie's Bag", "Red Garter Strut", and "Son Cuero Y Boogaloo". Firey stuff, and one of their best records!

✨✧ Fania All StarsQue Pasa – The Best Of The Fania All Stars ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Some of the best of the best of The Fania All Stars – magical music from that short stint when the combo were recording for Columbia Records in the late 70s! While at Columbia, the group grew even more than the styles of their roots at the Fania label – picking up some hipper touches of soul, club, and fusion – all of which were worked nicely to tighten up their groove. And while you might think that after playing side-long jams, these shorter cuts could represent a more commercial side for the group – to us, this shift is an important one that has the ensemble taking the old energy of the Latind descarga and bringing it nicely into focus for a huge crossover audience. The cuts here sparkle and glisten with the best non-Latin funk and club of the time – and the CD features 13 tracks from the albums Spanish Fever, Rhythm Machine, Cross Over, and Delicate & Jumpy – titles that include "Coro Miayre", "Ella Fue", "Fania All Stars Cha Cha Cha", "Los Bravos", "Peanuts", "Prepara", "Que Pasa", "Sin Tu Carino", "Isadore", and "Foofer Soofer".

Ray BarrettoBarretto (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1975. Used ... $29.99
A lost gem in the 70s catalog of Ray Barretto – a fantastic album with some really wonderful tracks! Although Ray's clearly in his salsa mode here, he's also got a very strong jazz approach to the tracks – picking up the changes, tones, and colors used on his Other Road album, and turning them back towards a more forward Latin approach. The ensemble's wonderfully tight – with players that include Roberto Rodriguez on trumpet, Art Webb on flute, Ray Romero on timbales, and the great Gil Lopez on piano. Ruben Blades sings on a few tracks, and the album includes some truly stellar moments – like "Ban Ban Quere", a heavy stormer, and the soulful 8 minute number "Canto Abacua", which has some great electric piano. Other cuts include "Guarare", "Eso Es Amar", "El Presupuesto", and "Testigo Fui". CD

Fania, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A great Ray Barretto album from 1972 – one that beautifully showcases the master percussionist as he effortlessly shifts between Latin soul and 70's salsa styles! The group's nice and lean – with Adalberto Santiago on vocals, Papy Roman on trumpet, Louis Cruz on piano, and the great Andy Gonzalez on bass – a heck of a player whose solid rhythmic pulse was a big part of so many great albums of the time. Two great tracks make the album totally worth owning – "Right On" and "Power", both of are funky Latin soul numbers that are right out of Ray's Hard Hands period! Other tracks are equally great salsa numbers – and titles include "Y Dicen", "Perla Del Sur", and "Oye La Noticia". LP, Vinyl record album

Killer stuff all around! This album's a monster – one of Ray's greatest, with the same sort of Latin Soul groove heard famously on his classic Acid LP. The record has Ray cutting across many genres – blending Latin, soul, jazz, and a slight bit of funk – all into a set of grooves that never stops pleasing, and which will make you start digging through the Latin racks like mad, just to find another LP this great! Titles include "Hard Hands", "Abidjan", "Got to Have You", "New York Soul", and the fantastic track "Love Beads", which has a cool rolling piano line that sounds like a great De La Soul sample. It's a great track, and makes the entire album worth the price! CD

Ray BarrettoIndestructible ... CD
Fania/Wagram (France), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
By this point in his career, Ray Barretto certainly was Indestructible – one of the biggest Latin leaders of his day, working at the forefront of new trends and new sounds! This fact is wonderfully displayed by the front cover, which shows Ray unbuttoning his shirt and taking off his Clark Kent-styled glasses to reveal a Superman costume underneath – and apart from this easy gimmick, the album itself is a straight ahead Latin jammer, with no tricks, no silliness – just a perfect early 70s salsa sound! Arrangements are by Eddie Martinez, Louie Cruz, and Louie Ramirez – and titles include "Ay No", "La Orquesta", "El Hijo Do Obatala", "Indestructible", "La Familia", and "El Diablo". CD

Ray BarrettoTogether ... LP
Fania, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An early 70s killer from Ray – recorded right in the same era as most of his best albums! The feel here is strongly in the salsa mode – as Ray steps effortlessly from the Latin Soul era into a whole new decade of musical magic. And like the best of his 60s work, Ray's salsa cooks at a level that's far hotter than most of his contemporaries – with lots and lots of incredibly tight percussion, impeccable instrumentation, and even a more soulful approach to the vocals than usual. The album's got a short Latin soul groover called "Together", which has tight bass and a very catchy lyric; an extended Latin jazz version of "Tin Tin Deo", with some incredible piano that goes way way out over the groove; and plenty of other great Latin numbers, like "Invitacion Al Son", "Vive Y Vacila", "De Donde Vengo", and "Hipocresia y Falsedad".

Fania, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $11.99
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, 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

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

Ruben BladesBohemio Y Poeta (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, Mid 70s. Used ... $7.99
A collection of important early work by Ruben Blades – and easily one of the best examples of his tremendous talents in the 70s! The title is very well put, as Blades is both poet and bohemian on the record – hitting themes that are both personal and political in a way that other Latin singers would never touch, and handled here with arrangements that bring in not only a bit of jazz, but also some deeper shadings of color and tone that sparkle with almost soundtrack-like sophistication. Many titles are relatively longish, especially when compared to the work of his contemporaries, and titles include "Juan Pachanga", "Sin Tu Carino", "Paula C", "Pablo Pueblo", "La Mora", and "Canto Abacua".

✨✧ Ruben BladesMaestra Vida – Segunda Parte ... CD
Fania, 1979. Used ... $6.99
An amazing achievement for Ruben Blades – a full suite of tracks conceived and composed by Ruben as a "disco drama" on wax! The work isn't the disco-styled album you might think from this description – and is more of a mini-opera or concept album by Blades, one that features ambitious arrangements from Louie Cruz, Marty Sheller, and Carlos Franzetti – using strings and more standard Latin backings to expand the tunes tremendously, and make the whole album work with the full drama it requires. There's a few spoken bits on the set, which give way to some great songs – and the album also has a few instrumental passages. Willie Colon produced and supervised the whole effort – and tracks on this second part include "Epilogo", "El Velorio", "Manuela Despues", "El Entierro", "Hay Que Viver", and "Maestra Vida". CD

Ruben BladesMetiendo Mano (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1977. Used ... $11.99
Willie Colon declares Ruben Blades as the champ on the cover of this early solo set – and for good reason too, as the album's one of Blades' best! There's a clear, clean simplicity to the record that's totally wonderful – a purity of vision before some of Ruben's later crossover efforts – and a standout sense of voice that's a bit different than the work he'd recorded with Willie Colon as a leader. Of course, given the image on the front, Willie's never too far off – arranging some tracks, producing the record, and playing trombone as well – yet somehow, there's a slight divergence here from the usual Colon groove – and an initial expression of Ruben Blades' grander Latin vision. In addition to Colon, arrangements are also by Louie Ramirez and Louie Cruz – and the band's as tight as can be, and features Yomo Toro on cuatro, Sonny Bravo on piano, and Jose Mangual and Milton Cardona on percussion. Titles include "La Maleta", "Fue Varon", "Pueblo", "Me Recordaras", and "Lluvia De Tu Cielo". CD

Great stuff – and a very sharp album cut by Willie during the Latin soul era, featuring a bunch of tracks that veer more towards the boogaloo side of things than his later albums! The groove is nice and hard – stripped down with the youthful energy that Willie brought to the scene at the time – and the record features great vocals by Hector Lavoe, Yayo El Indo, and Elliot Romero. Features the wonderful piano-bassed groover – "Jazzy" – which spirals out with descarga-like energy! Other great tracks include the boogaloo numbers "Skinny Papa", "Willie Baby", "Willie Whopper", and "El Malo" – but the whole album's a winner! LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant new move for Willie Colon – a set that goes even further than his mid 70s classics with Ruben Blades, and pushes Willie into a Pan-American consciousness carried off with ambitious musical vision! The sound is still salsa at the core, but Willie's also brought in bits of other South American influences – traces of styles from Columbia, Argentina, and most importantly Brazil – heard wonderfully on Willie's reading of Chico Buarque's excellent "Oh Que Sera"! The backings are full, and sometimes have large orchestrations – and the vocals are both proud yet somehow fragile at the same time. Titles include "Oh, Que Sera?", "Mi Sueno", "Celo", "Amor Verdadero", "Al Dormir", "Toma Mis Manos", and "Sueno De Papelote". CD

A young Hector LaVoe is on lead vocals, but the real star here is the group – who have a lean, mean, stripped-down sound that's really great!

But even more than the vocals the thing we really love here are the arrangements – bold, soaring, and really complex – often mixing larger string passages with some incredible work on sax and flute from players who include Mauricio Smith, Ronnie Cuber, and Bobby Porcelli – all coming together here with a sense of dynamism that reminds us of some of our favorite work at the time from Bobby Vince Paunetto. The scope of the record is really amazing and very powerful, and titles include "Nueva York", "Chinacubana", "Juancito", "Urubatan", "Julia", "Tu Eres Tu", and "Sin Poderte Habiar". CD

The album really marks a departure for Willie – moving past the bad boy style of earlier records, that kind of "tough guy in the hood" look – into a mode that was more open to other Latin scenes, and which marked an even greater rise to Latin stardom – really warm, open-handed, and a push forward with a new level of power and maturity.

Hector Lavoe's vocals are wrapped tightly and beautifully here in Willie Colon production – and the album's one of the classics from the pair recorded at the height of Lavoe's solo career! The sound is tight and dynamic, but never too over the top – and although Lavoe's vocals are certainly center stage on the record, there's also some tremendous flourishes from the backing players that really drive the set. And as a surprisingly highlight, the album actually features one instrumental track – very odd for a Hector Lavoe album – a mellow reading of Lee Morgan's "Ceora", done with a fair bit of strings on this version. Arrangements are by Jose Febles and Jose Madero – and titles include "El Sabio", "Alejate", "Llore", "Ceora", and "Para Ochun". CD

The album's one of the few that Harvey issued under his own name, and it features him on piano and vibes, working with arrangements by Marty Sheller, and a tight batch of studio players who cook up the grooves in a classic Fania/Tico style! The album's got some very groovy originals – like "The Micro Mini", "You're No Good", "My Dream", and "You Mess My Mind Up" – plus some sweet little covers, like "The Think Drink Theme", "The Word", and "Wishing & Hoping" – all of which come off like some of Willie Bobo's best work of the time!

One of the weirdest, coolest Latin Soul albums we've ever heard – the only offering ever from the duo of Dianne & Carole – two female singers who come off with a great deal of enthusiasm on the set! That's our way of saying that the ladies are a bit rough on the vocals – but that's also part of the charm of the set – as the record's got a really messed-up feel, of the sort that we really love from Latin Soul records like this! The great Louie Ramirez handled a good number of the arrangements, with help from Joe Simmons on the other tracks – and many of the numbers have that upbeat, catchy groove that was the Speed label trademark at the time – a sound that was quite different than the modes at Fania or Tico. Titles include excellent tracks "The Fuzz" and "Latin Rhythm" – plus "Feelin' The Pain", "I See the Lovelight", "The Boy Across The Street", "Water Brown", and a hip cover of "Do You Know The Way To San Jose".

Eddie PalmieriEddie Palmieri Is Doin' It In The Park EP ... LP
Global Rhythm Group, 2013. New Copy ... $9.99 14.98
Some of the best work we've heard in years from the legendary Eddie Palmieri – sounds recorded especially for a film on pick-up basketball in New York City, and done with a style that really takes us back to Eddie's best records from years back! The music is very jazzy – with long passages that feature strong solos on piano from Palmieri, vibes from Joe Locke, and baritone sax from Ronnie Cuber – played with a freewheeling intensity that goes way beyond any scene-setting need of a film score, and which is filled with the mix of spontaneous energy and sophisticated ideals of Palmieri's best compositions. The percussion is wonderful, too – very rootsy, and beautifully recorded – and the whole thing is punctuated by a few short spoken bits from the film.

Eddie PalmieriMozambique ... LP
Tico, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An important early album from Eddie Palmieri – one in which he introduces the "mozambique" rhythm – essentially a conga-styled approach to the tune, and one that features a lot more percussion than on his earlier sides! The group that supports him is strong enough to carry off the sound well – and features Manny Oquendo on timbales and bass, Tommy Lopez on conga, and vocals by Ismale Quintana – and the overall shift is similar to the one that Pacheco made between his records on Alegre and those on Fania. The album's filled with loads of great upbeat tracks – and titles include "Mi Mambo Conga", Manha De Carnaval", "Que Suene La Orquesta", " "Estamos Chao", "Camagueyanos Y Habaneros", and "Pobre Pedro".

Chollo Rivera & The Latin Soul DrivesBy Chollo ... LP
Cotique, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An obscure classic from the Latin Soul generation – the standout set recorded by the young Chollo Rivera and his strangely-named group The Latin Drives! The set's got equal parts soul and equal parts Latin – in a way that's similar to some of Joe Bataan's albums for Fania from the same time – young, free, and proud – really steeped in the blend of races and cultures that were bubbling through the best records of the New York scene in the late 60s! Instrumentation includes some very sharp twin-trombones in the lead, plus trumpet, piano, bass, bongo, and timbales from Chollo. English vocals are sung by Billy Scruggs, Spanish vocals by Israel Perez – and titles include "Montuno Con Soul", "Black & Blues", "Latin Soul Drive Is Here", "Pega Pega", "Swing Que Va", "I'm The One Who Loves You", and a nice cover of "I Got The Feeling" that really Latinizes the James Brown hit!

VariousFunk Revival – Sounds From The Subtropics ... CD
Essential, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $7.99 16.98
Incredible funk from the Miami scene – most of it done with heavily Cuban roots! The tracks here are mostly from the wonderful Sound Triangle label – a tiny Florida imprint that focused on capturing sounds that were neither funk nor soul, jazz nor Latin – but a unique hybrid of all their best elements – brought to Florida by ex-patriot Cubans, and simmered down into a wicked new blend! There's a sharpness here that's really wonderful – a heavily percussive quality on most numbers that rivals the best funky 45s from up north at the time – but which also has plenty of Latin touches too, as you'd hear on some of the most soulful sides from Fania, or the growing Chicano scene in LA. A few of the names here are familiar from important reissues over the years, but the set's also overflowing with a lot more lesser-known gems as well – a whole new territory in funky music, with tremendous tracks all the way through! Titles include "Abacua" by Manteca, "No Quiero Que Te Vayas" by Signs Of The Zodiac, "La Inflacion De Ofelia" by Oscar Pena, "Soul Freedom" by Ray & His Court, "Bun Bun Bun" by Coke, "Jungle Walk" by Pearly Queen, "Make Your Move" by Wild Wind, "Keep On Bumpin" by Clockwork, "Borriquito" by Peter Fernandez, "Fantasy Of Love" by Mantrap, "Quit Jivin" by Pearly Queen, "Nana" by Coke, "Los Feligreses" by Luis Santi, "Algo Sabroso" by Nelson Padron, "Watermelon Man" by Pepe Delgado, and "De Eso Nada Monado" by Ray & His Court.

✨✧ VariousHey Ho Guaguanco – Rare & Unissued Salsa Jams From The Speed & Fonseca Catalog 1968/1969 Vol 1 ... LP
Speed/Andale, Late 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $11.99 14.98
Fantastic tracks from two ultra-rare labels from the New York scene – the Latin Soul empire Speed Records, and the super-tight Fonseca label – which provided a real mainline to Puerto Rican grooves at the time! Both labels cut some of the hardest-hitting Latin tracks of the time – music that was often rawer and more unbridled than material for other indies, like Tico or Fania – and the tracks here are from some of the obscure albums issued by both imprints, and some even-rare 7" singles – all with an upbeat groove, and a sound that's much more the Latin groove of the streets uptown, instead of the bigger ballrooms down in midtown. Titles include "Descarga Los Bravos" by Kent Gomez, "Asi Asi Descarga" by Mike Hernandez & Su Sonora Casino, "El Bembe" by Terrible Frankie Nieves, "Milton's Jala Jala" by Milton Zapata, "Palos Bravos De St John" by Orquesta Oliveri, "Yemaja" by Kent Gomez, "Palacio Descarga" by Danny Palacios, and "Melao Melaito" by Orquesta Oliveri.

VariousRough Guide To Latin Rare Groove (with bonus Spanglish Fly CD) ... CD
Rough Guide, 1960s/1970s. New Copy 2CD ... $4.99 14.98
A wicked little set that really gets at the way that Latin record collecting has moved way past the usual sounds from New York, Puerto Rico, and Cuba – to embrace a whole host of styles from around the globe! In a world of collections that feature oft-reissued numbers from the Fania catalog, this set goes way further to dig up a whole host of gems from north and south of the border – and even a few from the other side of the Atlantic as well – mostly older numbers, but also including a few contemporary cuts that fit well alongside the vintage numbers. Pablo Yglesias handled the track selection, with the same quality he brings to other Latin projects too – and titles include "Bamba Cure" by Mario Allison, "No Pago Na" by Alfredo Gutierrez, "Esa Mujer" by Los Kenya, "Denisth" by Grupo 2000, "Funky Tumbao" by Setenta, "My Shingaling Boy" by Spanglish Fly, "Domingo Por La Manana" by Carlos Pickling, "Black Shadow" by Orchestra Dee Jay, "Pensamiento" by Piper Pimienta, "Do You Want To Be Free" by Gilberto Sextet, and "Chevere" by Joe Quijana. Also features a bonus CD from Spanglish Fly – Let My People Boogaloo – a collection of work from the group's early years! CD

Heavy Latin grooves – served up with plenty of funk, jazz, and soul in the mix – and put together as a collection that's even better than the first volume in this series! DJ Pablo Yglesias seems to get sharper ears each time we tune into one of his projects – and this time around, he's come up with a massive batch of Latin tracks that goes way past the obvious – to include some really rare gems that move past the usual Fania classics. The set list is wonderful – and in keeping with Pablo's support of the global underground, there's also some contemporary cuts in the mix, but which sit perfectly next to the rare vintage tracks.

✨✧ Orlando MarinOut Of My Mind ... LP
Brunswick, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Latin Soul classic – but one that's a lot more obscure than some of the better-remembered albums on Fania and Tico from the late 60s! Orlando Marin is probably mostly known as an arranger, and a leader from the earlier years of the New York scene – but during the Latin Soul years he cut this fantastic set for Decca – easily one of the best of the all-great Latin sides the label was doing at the time! Lyrics are often in English, and sung with a good deal of soul by Eddie Revere – and Orlando's group crackles with the intensity of the Joe Cuba Sextet – thanks to a timbales-heavy sound in the lead, lots of dark piano on the bottom, and some trumpety flourishes on the top – all with a nice dose of jazz in the mix. Soul-based titles include "Sugarfoot Baby", "The Hustler", and "Out Of My Mind" – and other titles include "Eenie Meenie Chow Chow", "Chickie's Cookie", "La Lengua", "Palo Monte", and "No Puede Ser".

✨✧ Hector RiveraAt The Party With Hector Rivera ... LP
Barry, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A monster album of Latin soul – arguably the greatest record ever cut by Hector Rivera! The record's a rare cooker that never lets up at all – a non-stop boogaloo party that definitely lives up to its swinging cover image – and which is quite different than most other albums from Hector! English language lyrics are at the lead on most numbers – and the rhythms have a romping blend of soul and Latin that's right up there with the same Spanish Harlem groove as work on Fania or Cotique, although arguably even better! There's lots of heavy piano in the grooves, and vocals on some cuts are sung by David Coleman – a singer we only know from this record, but who really makes it shine. Titles include "Playing It Cool", "At The Party", "Shingaling Baby", "I Got My Eye On You", "Pra Voz Wilma", and "Asia Minor". LP, Vinyl record album

One of the coolest, grooviest albums of Latin Soul you could ever hope to find – one of the few records ever from the great Ray Terrace – and a set that goes even beyond some of the similar sides on Tico or Fania at the time! Ray's groove here is totally wonderful – upbeat, joyous, and blending soul and jazz in equal parts – often with English language lyrics that have the best sort of Spanish Harlem sound. Many tunes are covers, but they're completely remade by the record – with lively arrangements from Marty Sheller that never let up, and smoking soul lead vocals by Willie Torres. The whole thing swings, and there's never a dull minute – on titles that include "Get On Up", "You've Been Talking 'Bout Me Baby", "Half Way Down", "Listen To Me", and the great "I Make A Fool Of Myself".

A great little set from keyboardist Lyman Woodard – and one that's definitely got some of the Latin flavor promised by the spelling in the title! Woodard's still playing some mighty nice organ and electric piano lines, but the group here also has some added Latin percussion at the bottom – and this expansive, warmly soulful sound that almost reminds us of some of the late 70s Fania fusion funk records – especially work by Mongo Santamaria when he was using a lot of Fender Rhodes! A young Regina Carter is on the record – both vocalizing and playing violin – and the tracks are long, and really compelling – with a complexity that's different than other Woodard albums, yet still just the right sort of groove. Titles include "Itanita", "Don't Stay Away", "Dedication", and "And The Ship Sails On". CD

Hector's in fine fine form laying down some jazzy Latin backings – and the record's got a hard hitting sound that puts it right up there with the best of albums on Fania from the time. Titles include "Hecto-Mania", a killer instrumental, plus "Be On The Lookout", "Sweet Soul Baby", "Now That I'm Your Man", and "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You", a totally sweet little ballad!

✨✧ VariousSalseando – Selected By Raphael Sebbag ... CD
Salsoul/Octave (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A rich serving of salsa gems from the legendary Salsoul/Mericana Records label – all hand-picked by Japanese DJ/collector/musician Raphael Sebbag! 20 years ago, Raphael worked similar magic with the huge Fania catalog – turning out a series of key compilations that also accompanied his work in United Future Organization – and now Sebbag takes an overdue look at the early years of Salsoul – that time when the label wasn't yet putting out disco music, and instead created a very strong catalog of some of the best underground work on the New York scene! The music here is a great indie representation of sounds that are a lot less familiar than those during the big years of Fania – and as such, there may well be a lot more experimentation going on – more chances with new ideas, and other great elements that make these tracks really shine. The 2CD set features a whopping 38 tracks in all – and titles include "El Fumigador" and "El Que Tenga Sabor" by Latin Dimensions, "Soy Guinero" and "Sabrosona" by Roberto Torres, "Una Pregunta" and "Tambores Pa Yemaya" by Raul Marrero, "People Make The World Go Round" by Saoco, "Cuando En Pesar Se Convierta La Risa" and "El Galleton" by Tempo 70, "Soul Makossa" by Johnny Zamot, "Un Coro Africano" by Orquesta Power, "Borracho No Vale" by Rey Roig, "No Puedo Mas" by La Fantastica, "Decidete" by Libre, "Chambelona" by Cachao, "Muchacho Ordinario" by Joe Bataan, "Ese Eres Tu" by Ray Rodriguez, and "Aguanta La Bronca Compay" by Los Jigmaguas.

✨✧ Quarter StreetQuarter Street (with download) ... LP
Hope Street (Australia), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Fiercely percussive, heavily soulful Latin sounds from Quarter Street – cut from the cloth of the classic, hard hitting 70s NYC salsa of Fania and Tico – and convincingly carrying that vibe in the contemporary Melbourne scene! It takes a depth of talent to retrace the past and sound vital in the present, and Quarter Street is the real deal. Given the sound, you'd think they were scions of the 70s Nu Yorican soul scene, honestly, we're not surprised to learn they're from Melbourne give the depth of soul and funk talent down under! This one's hard hitting ensemble with a great, gritty lead singer in Sergio Botero and a lineup that includes Luis Poblete on congas, Cristian Saavedra on timbales, Cesar Saavedra on bass, Sebastian Orellana on bonga, Lazaro Numa on guiro, Ben Gillespie and Jimmy Bowman on trombones and Andrew James on piano. Includes "Fantasia", "Tumba La Cana Jibarito", "Los Golpes Ensenan", "Diferfene", "Libre Soy", "Se Casa La Rumba", "De Cualquier Manera" and "La Quarter Llego". LP, Vinyl record album

Essential work from LTG Exchange – a seminal group in the early days of disco, one who blended together elements of funk, Latin, and uptempo soul, into a groove that was one of the hippest on the New York scene of the mid 70s. This album's one of the group's only full length LPs – and it's a joint venture between the Latin-oriented Fania label and the disco-oriented Scepter/Wand imprint, which should give you a strong indication of the groundbreaking sound of the record – taking the Spanish Harlem groove of Fania, and working it through the bubbling club approach of Scepter. Titles include the big club hit "Waterbed" (vocal and instrumental), plus "My Love (Does It Good To Me)", "I Like What I Like", "Trouble On The Run", "Saint Or Sinner", and "Tsen Si Yen Yen". CD

Nicola Conte's working here with a great new singer – the lovely Stefania Dipierro, who brings in just the right sort of Brazilian vibe to fit the record's placement on the Far Out label! The style here is maybe a bit more Brazilian than some of Nicola's music on the Schema imprint – but the approach is very similar overall – lots of warm, groovy currents that follow a path from 60s Rio through Italian jazz and soundtrack generations too – served up by an instrumental group led by Conte on guitar, with work from Pietro Lusso on Fender Rhodes and Hammond, Gaetano Partipilo on sax and flute, and Fabrizio Bosso on trumpet! Yet Stefania herself definitely is in the spotlight throughout – singing in this breathy, soulful style that really opens up the tunes – which are a mix of originals written with Conte, and some very well-chosen jazz and Brazilian classics. Titles include "Joia", "Vento Bravo", "I Feel The Sun On Me", "Natural", "Ainda Mais Amor", "Within You & I", and "Maracatu Atomico". 10 tracks on the vinyl version. LP, Vinyl record album
