Very groovy work – and one of the best-selling albums of the Latin Soul era! During the 70s, RicardoRay 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
An amazing follow up to RicardoRay'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
