Fania All-StarsLatin - Soul - Rock ... LP
Fania, 1974. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $9.99
After a disastrous 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 and one of their finest albums of the seventies! A few cuts are more straight 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". Other titles include ""El Raton", "Congo Bongo", "Chanchullo", "There You Go" and "Mama Guela". LP, Vinyl record album
Also available Latin - Soul - Rock ... LP 8.99

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 All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 2 ... LP
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-StarsRhythm Machine ... LP
Columbia/Fania, 1977. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the proudest moments of the New York Latin underground – a time when some of its best players wound up playing for Columbia, through a brief affiliation between Fania and the larger label! And although you might think that the album would totally sell out the group's best points, it's actually a great batch of cuts that mixes the All-Stars' strong salsa and jazz grooves with some nice club-oriented rhythms – a blend that was perfect to show the growing sophistication of the Nuyorican scene in the late 70s! All the right touches are still strongly in place – and the record features work from Pacheco, Roberto Roena, Mongo Santamaria, and Louie Ramirez, as well as guests Bob James and Eric Gale. Titles include "En Orbita", "Awake", "Juan Pachanga", "Steady", "Jubileo", and "Ella Fue". LP, Vinyl record album
(White label promo. Cover has some wear and a tracklist sticker.)

✨✧ Fania All-StarsLive At The Cheetah Vol 1 ... LP
Fania, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Tropi Jazz All StarsTropi Jazz All Stars Vol 1 ... CD
Tropi Jazz/RMM, 1996. Used ... $9.99
Definitely an all-star set – given that the participants include Dave Valentin on flute, Tito Puente on percussion, Eddie Palmieri on piano, JP Torres on trombone – all great Latin players who really burn strongly here on this 90s live date for the Tropi Jazz label! The format's a bit like older Latin all-stars sessions for Alegre or Fania – driven by Cuban descarga energy, yet put together with a few modern touches at times – leaving some room for guest performances by Michel Camilo on piano and David Sanchez on tenor sax, both of whom underscore the strong jazzy sound of the music. Felipe Luciano is the master of ceremonies – and titles on this first volume include "On Fire", "Straight Street", "Rumba De Cajon", "Bembe", "Suite 925-2828", "Five Beat Mambo", and "Every Day I Have The Blues".

✨✧ VariousEl Barrio 3 – Back On The Streets Of Spanish Harlem ... CD
Fania, Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A fantastic third volume in the massive El Barrio series from Fania – Latin dancefloor stormers loaded with funk, soul and touches of psychedelia – all of it uptempo and guaranteed to get a backside in motion! The El Barrio sets are doing a great job thus far of bringing out the most far reaching and all inclusive sounds of the NYC Latin scene at the end of the 60s and first half of the 70s (with a couple of territorial distinctions) – most with English language lyrics, but far too wildly grooving to worry about anything even close to cloying crossover material – with killer tracks by Latin Blues Band w/Luis Aviles, Bobby Marin, the Lebron Brothers, Ralfi Pagan, and many more! 16 tracks in all: "(I'll Be A) Happy Man" by the Latin Blues Band feat Luis Aviles, "Return To Spanish Harlem" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Mr Skyjacker" by Richie & The PS 54 Schoolyard, "Willie Whopper" by Willie Colon, "You Gotta Love Me" by Johnny Colon, "Soul Makossa" by Fania All Stars, "Que Pasa (Wa Happens)" by Tito Puente and more.

✨✧ Symphony Sid & OthersSymphony Sid's Last Radio Broadcast ... LP
Fania, 1973. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful, baby! Symphony Sid was one of the pivotal Latin DJs in New York radio, and throughout his career, he helped many of the city's best players and singers get their start on the scene. In 1972, Sid did his last radio show ever – and the event was broadcast from the famous Cheetah night club, with the help of a host of famous Latin music guest stars like Willie Colon, Willie Rosario, Ray Baretto, Orchestra Harlow, and others! This 2LP captures all the excitement of that broadcast, and has Sid rapping his usual rap in between songs, just as he did on radio. The release is an amazing way to sneak a peek into the NY Latin scene as it really existed, and since it's a double LP set, you get a huge amount of great material, put together and introduced by one of the greatest figures in the business. Very nice, and a priceless treasure! LP, Vinyl record album
(A great copy overall – three sides are NM-, but side four has a mark that clicks on a few tracks.)
