Joe CubaEl Alma Del Barrio – The Soul Of Spanish Harlem ... LP
Tico, Mid 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
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!

Tico, 1979. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A later album by Joe Cuba – but a really great one!

There's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Tico, 1966. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A Latin classic from the word "bang"! This album was the one that busted Joe Cuba out of the Latin ghetto – into the sound of 60s soul, early funk, and beyond.

RCA, 1959. Very Good+ ... $1.99
Xavier Cugat turns his hit Latin sound to tunes from Mexico – working his way through medleys of traditional tunes, all given a late 50s zip, plus shorter numbers that work equally well in his choppy, percussive style.

Decca, Late 60s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
Very groovy stuff from Cugie! It's the late 60s, and he's got more of a pop Latin groove than earlier – and lays down some nice peppy covers of pop material, plus a few other Latin standards. Not exactly Latin soul – but not that far off, either. Includes a great version of "Samb ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
