Joe CubaEl Pirata Del Caribe – The Caribbean Pirate ... LP
Tico, 1979. Near Mint- ... $19.99
A later album by Joe Cuba – but a really great one! Joe's moved from a Latin soul groove into a mode that's soaring and jazzy – with the kind of solos and tight rhythms that made him a legend, updated to reflect some of the NuYorican changes going on around him in the 70s! There's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

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.

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