The Soul of Spanish Harlem – and the upbeat sound of the Joe Cuba Sextet – a hard-to-find album recorded just before the dawn of the classic Latin soul era!

One of Cugie's more popular albums – and a record that has him re-recording older hits for the hi-fi generation.

A tight album of jazzy Latin pop, recorded at the tail end of the 60s – with a nice feel that's different than some of Xavier's earlier work.
