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.
