Fania All StarsQue Pasa – The Best Of The Fania All Stars ... CD
Columbia, Late 70s. New Copy ... $5.99 6.99
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".

✨✧ 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".

Fania All-StarsLive At Yankee Stadium Vol 1 ... CD
Fania, 1975. Used ... $6.99
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", and "Soy Guajiro". CD

Fania All-StarsRhythm Machine ... CD
Columbia/Fania, 1977. Used ... $9.99
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". CD

✨✧ Fania All StarsGuasasa (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A cheesy cover and a later date – but proof that the Fania All Stars groove can always be strong, no matter what the setting! This album's actually recorded by a smaller ensemble from the larger group – a sextet that includes Ray Barretto on congas, Roberto Roena on bongos, Nicky Marrero on timbales, Bobby Valentin on bass, Papo Lucca on keyboards, and Johnny Pacheco on flute and guiro – a very percussive ensemble working here in a strongly jazz-based mode! The sound is great – and even at the few points when the keyboards are slightly modern, there's always an overall sound that preserves an older Latin jazz approach. Some numbers have chorus vocals, but these really don't dominate – and the main focus here is instrumental work – on titles that include "The Click","Allegria", "Guasasa", "Quasedito", "De Nuevo A La Carga", and a great cover of Timmy Thomas' "Why Can't We Live Together".

✨✧ Fania All-StarsLive At The Red Garter Vol 1 ... LP
Fania, 1972. Used ... 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 first volume include "Country Girl-City Man", "Mi Gusta El Son", "Sabor Sabor" and "Guatacando". Firey stuff, and one of their best records! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Fania All StarsSan Juan 73 ... CD
Fania, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
The unearthed debut concert of the Fania All Stars in San Juan, and the first ever concert to be held at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum – a blazing set from the vaults of Fania Records seeing release for the first time ever! The Fania stars at hand for the concert is truly exceptional – with Cheo Feliciano, Bobby Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Ismael Miranda, Ismael Quintana, Pete Rodriguez and many more – and it's hard to believe the set's only now being released! With the ultra iconic Live At Yankee Stadium releases of the mid 70s, perhaps the powers at be thought that this recording would get lost in the shadows, but the set is excellent is and really an unearthed treasure – the Fania All Stars in peak form in front of a huge, appreciative audience! Killer percussion and horns throughout, with passionate group and solo vocals – with titles including "Mi Debilidad" with Ismael Quintana, "Que Rico Suena Mi Tambor" with Ismael Miranda, "El Raton" with Cheo Feliciano, "Pueblo Latino" with Pete Rodriguez, "Mi Gente" with Hector Lavoe, "Soy Guajiro". "Soul Makossa" and "Congo Bongo". CD

✨✧ 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".

Ismael MirandaNo Voy Al Festival (remastered edition) ... CD
Fania, 1977. Used ... $29.99
Soaring 70s salsa from Ismael Miranda – cut at a time when he was making some great waves with the Fania All Stars, but sounding even better on his own! Miranda's got a positive, powerful vocal approach here – one that's oozing with soul and humanity, but never falls into the too-emotive traps of some of his contemporaries. Arrangements are full and rich – put together by Jorge Millet with a fair bit of horns, but also some nice use of acoustic guitar to pull out a slightly rootsy mode at times. Titles include "La Puerta Esta Abierta", "No Voy Al Festival", "Piensas", "Sauavecity", "Ten Fe", and "Vuelve Cipriano". CD

✨✧ Orchestra HarlowHommy – A Latin Opera ... LP
Fania, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Orchestra Harlow's answer to the Who's Tommy – Hommy, a Latin Opera, and one of the few concept albums we know from the New York Latin scene of the time! The tracks are fairly short, and they're separated by short "interludes" throughout the album that feature some cool spoken bits that trace the story of the record, but which also have the humorous touches of some of the older Alegre All Stars albums from the 60s. And although Orchestra Harlow borrow the name of the Who's album, the work here is all original – not covers – two long "acts", spread out over the sides of the record with a sophisticated approach that shows the Harlow group moving into much deeper territory at the time. Lead vocals are by Junior Gonzalez, and you'll also hear Adalberto Santiago, Cheo Feliciano, Justo Betancourt, and Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez. Tracks include "Gracia Divina", "Mantecadito", "El Doctor Y La Razon", "Es Un Varon", "El Dia De Navidad", and "Soy Sensacional". LP, Vinyl record album

Joey PastranaJoey (remastered edition) ... CD
Cotique/Fania, Late 60s. Used ... $29.99
Brilliant early work by one of the sharpest bandleaders of the Latin Soul era! A young Joey Pastrana leads his sharp little combo through a stunning mix of Latin jazz, Latin soul, and descarga tracks – all with the kind of hard playing, jazzy grooves, and dark edges that characterized a lot of the best late 60s albums on Cotique. There's a nascent salsa groove on here that bubbles forth amidst some more stripped down Latin soul numbers – making for a really winning album overall, one that's got loads and loads of solid tunes! Tracks include "That's How Rumors Start", "Yehco De Rumbon", "Ricki Chi", "Orquesta Pastrana", "King Of Latin Soul", "Dance Donna", and "Cotique All Stars". Great stuff by one of the most-overlooked talents of the late 60s! CD

✨✧ Mongo SantamariaLive At Yankee Stadium ... LP
Vaya, 1974. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $23.99
One of Mongo Santamaria's best albums of the 70s – a killer live set recorded at Yankee Stadium, during the same night that produced a live date by the Fania All Stars! The groove here is a wonderful blend of Latin, funk, soul, and jazz – grooving with a kickass approach that's almost even better in the live setting than on Mongo's studio records of the time – stretched-out, open-ended, and filled with fiery performances in front of a very enthusiastic crowd! Arrangements are by Mongo, Marty Sheller, Luis Gasca, and William Allen– and the group is totally great – with Luis Ortiz on trumpet, Allen on bass, Justo Almario on tenor and flute, and Hector Veneros on alto and baritone sax. Amazing stuff all the way through – with tracks that include "Cousin Jody", "Black Dice", "Coyulde", "Naked", "Leah", and "Dr. Gasca". LP, Vinyl record album

Tappan Zee, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A great Bob James-directed session from Mongo Santamaria – and a set that takes the fusion-inflected Latin work he was doing on the Vaya label, and blends it with an even tighter, sharper CTI Records vibe! The approach is a bit like that combination of underground Latin and larger label resources that brought great sounds to both Ray Barretto and the Fania All Stars at the time – and the session features excellent CTI help from Bob James on keyboards, Eric Gale on guitar, and Hubert Laws on flute – the latter of whom got his start working with Mongo in the 60s! Titles include a funky electric remake of "Watermelon Man", plus the cuts "Afro Cuban Fantasy", "Jamaican Sunrise", "Jai Alai", and "Sambita". LP, Vinyl record album

Wrasse, 1974. New Copy 2CD ... $17.99 19.99
Amazing music from an amazing moment – the legendary Zaire 74 concerts that took place before the Rumble In The Jungle fight between Muhammad Ali and George Frazier! The moment was one of great pride and power – and although the concert performances have become the stuff of legend over the years, this is the first time they've ever been properly issued – presented as a huge collection of tracks with very detailed notes! Other music from this festival has been issued – famous concerts by James Brown and Fania All Stars – but these tracks are all by African artists, and really show the tremendous cultural activity taking place on the continent at the time – in a mix of modes that are fierce and funky throughout. It's crazy that we've had to wait so long to hear this music – but the quality of the tracks is more than worth it – in a triple-length package that features smoking performances by Miriam Makeba, Franco & TP OK Jazz, Abeti, Orchestre Stukas, Abumba Masikini, Tabu Ley Rochereau & Afrisa, and Pembe Dance Troup. 34 tracks in all – and a really wonderful package!
