✨✧ Ricardo RayJala Jala Y Boogaloo ... LP
Alegre, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
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)... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ VariousKool It – Soul, Funk, & Jazz Go Latin ... CD
Harmless (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great collection – with a very hip concept! The set takes soul classics from the 60s and 70s, and has them redone by Latin Soul artists of the same time – offering up alternate takes of classics you'll recognize, done in versions that are often a lot harder and more slamming than the originals! If you've dug some of the other Latin compilations on Harmless – like Broasted Or Fried or Freak Off – you'll really groove on this set. Titles include "Young, Gifted, & Brown" by Joe Bataan, "I'm A Good Woman" by El Chicano, "Tighten Up" by Al Escobar, "Green Onions" by Jack Costanzo & Gerrie Woo, "Shaft" by Joe Bataan, "We Got Latin Soul" by Mongo Santamaria, "El Pato De La Bahia" by Roberto Roena, "Fever" by La Lupe, "Feel Like Making Love" by Ricardo Marrerro, and "Sookie Sookie" by Ricardo Ray.

✨✧ VariousNuyorican Funk Experience 2 – Further Adventures In Latin Soul ... CD
Nascente (UK), 1970s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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.
