A wild selection of hard-hitting Cuban rarities – pulled from a host of Cuban labels that have kept out of the US during the past 40 years! Although the title says "Afro-Cuban Funk", the grooves here are much more varied – some funky, but also jazzy, percussive, and crackling with lots of Latin electricity. The style ranges heavily from track to track – as some tunes go back to pre-Castro 50s, while others are from the amazing early 70s crossover years of the Cuban scene – but the set's a really well done one overall, and is united with a freshness that steps past other simple Latin sets. Tracks are from labels that include Sound Triangle, Sonoton
e, Riviera, and Studio 3 – and titles include "Comin Home Baby" by Pepe Delgado, "Salida" by Orquesta Suprema, "Sabor Dominante" by Luis Santi, "No Queremos Chaperonas" by Conjunto Casino, "A Santa Barbara" by Gina Martin, "Latino Loco" by Nelson Padron, "Cambai El Paso" by Patato Valdez, and "Algo Sabroso" by Paquito Hechevarria.
