A searing compilation of NYC Latin grooves from the golden age of the 70s – some of the best raw, percussive greatness from the Fania
label proper – plus the Tico, Alegre, Cotique, Inca and other subsidiaries – 30 tracks on 2CDs! The set does a terrific job of blending the far-reaching sounds of the boroughs & Barrio – with loads of percussive jams with incredible solos, rootsy material and a few jazzier turns. Great tunes all
around – with a nice mix of big names and lesser known combos! Titles include "Sonaremos El Tambor" by Tipica 73, "Los Rumberos" by Mark Dimond & Frankie Dante, "El Destino" by Latin Tempo, "Tumba La Cana Jibarito" by Sonora Poncera, "Guasasa" by Larry Harlow Orchestra, "Todo Tiene Su Final" by Willie Colon & Hector Lavoe, "Mama Guela" by Fania All Stars
, "Ahora Es El Tiempo" by Louie Ramirez, "Toro Mata" by Celia Cruz & Johnny Pacheco, "Sin Ti" by Lebron Brothers, "Bilongo" by Eddie Palmieri, "Vengo Del Monte" by Tommy Olivencia and more!
