The sound of Spanish Harlem in the 70s – a sweet blend of soul, funk, and Latin rhythms – coming together in one unique cultural moment that's given the world a set of grooves that will last forever! The territory's been explored by other compilations in the past – both on the Nascente, Soul Jazz, and Charly labels – but this entry does more than enough of a good job of keeping up the groove, expanding the reach a bit further than usual, to include a few numbers by more obscure artists, a few tracks on the cusp of salsa, and even a few late Latin Soul numbers. 15 tracks in all, with titles that include "8th Avenue" by Willie Colon, "There You Go" by Fania All Stars, "My Daddy's Farm" by Frankie Dante, "Nitty Gritty" by Ricardo Ray
, "Flamenco Ain't Bad" by Sabu Martinez, "Funky Felix" by Sequida, "Vida Nocturna" by Benitez & Nebula, "New York Soul" by Ray
Barretto, "What You Don't Know" by Mongo Santamaria, "Merecumbe" by Johnny Colon, and "Batumbique" by Andy Harlow.
