Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo ... LP
Alegre, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Very groovy work – and one of the best-selling albums of the Latin Soul era! During the 70s, Ricardo Ray was best known for his salsa work – but back in the 60s, he was really swinging around in the early blend of boogaloo and shing-a-ling styles! The set's got a really frenetic feel – tight drums, skittish rhythms, and loads of playful tracks. English language lyrics abound – and the grooves are laid out with lots of bumping basslines and horn flourishes to keep things lively. Titles include "Richie's Jala Jala", "Cabo E", "3 & 1 Mozambique", "Bomba Camara", and "Columbia's Booglaoo". LP, Vinyl record album

Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo Vol 2 ... LP
Alegre, 1968. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
An amazing follow up to Ricardo Ray's first album of Jala Jala and Boogaloo tracks – a real killer Latin soul set that's even better than the first! The record's got a full-on style that kicks in from the very first note – a blend of uptight Latin tracks and some very groovy 60s-styled numbers with plenty of sock-soul touches – a definite boogaloo influence, but still some strong Puerto Rican modes too. Lyrics are mostly in Spanish, but the grooves have a universal appeal that kicks in no matter what the language! Stormin and groovy all the way through – with tracks that include "Tin Marin", "Mr. Trumpet Man", "More Richie", and "Musica Ye Ye". LP, Vinyl record album

The front image here isn't really one you'd want to put in a book of Latin Record cover art – but the record's another strong one from the time from Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz – a continuation of their blend of salsa rhythms and spiritual themes – quite unique for any artists of the time! The religion is upfront in the lyrics here, but the rhythms are still quite lively and Latin – and given that vocals are in Spanish, the message doesn't come across nearly as strongly to us Anglos – leaving us to focus most strongly on the overall sound of the record, which is still plenty darn great. Titles include "Vive", "Tu Ausencia", "Senales", "Caridad", "Buscame", "Nabucodonosor", and "Coco Coquito". LP, Vinyl record album
