Rough Guide, Late 60s/Early 70s/2015. New Copy
Heavy Latin grooves – served up with plenty of funk, jazz, and soul in the mix – and put together as a collection that's even better than the first volume in this series! DJ Pablo Yglesias seems to get sharper ears each time we tune into one of his projects – and this time around ... LP, Vinyl record album

Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1979. New Copy
A key chapter in the rich long legacy of Candido on record – a set that pushes the percussion maestro strongly into the disco generation – with wonderful results that are still massively strong all these many years later! Candido had always been one of the funkiest conga players around ... CD

Juicy
Verve, 1967. Very Good-
Hard soulful Latin from the great Willie Bobo! The record's an extremely tasty blend of cuts that mix hard Latin grooving with a swinging 60s pop feel – all filtered through the crossover genius of late 60s Verve. There's lots of great boogaloo groovers, shing-a-ling rhythms, and a tight no- ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ansonia, Early 60s. Very Good+
Beautiful work from Arsenio Rodriguez – recorded in New York in the early 60s, with a sound and style that's a bit more subtle than some of his other albums – but a sound that's totally great! Singers include Raffi Martinez, Israel Castro, and Chewi Rivera – and the arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

MCA, 1975. Very Good-
Tight Latin Funk from El Chicano – a bit slicker than some of their earlier albums, and with tracks that are a tad weak, but there are still plenty of fine moments. The title track "Pyramid" is a wonderful Latin groover – all instrumental, and in a slow Chicano funk mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Can You Feel It
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good
Sweet sounds from the days when Fania Records was one of the greatest things going on the New York scene – and some of its key artists got a chance to work for other labels! This set's one of the best examples of that moment – as Ray Barretto steps out here in some sweet soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Live At The Cheetah Vol 2
Fania, Early 70s. Very Good+
Killer early work by the Fania All Stars – caught live at the legendary Cheetah club, which was the heart of the New York salsa scene at the start of the 70s! The album is easily one of the best by the group – and features long tracks that really capture the jamming intensity that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gracias
Fania, 1979. Near Mint-
Good salsa session from the 70's, with the long jammer "Indestructible" (eleven minutes long!), plus "Hipocresia Y Falsedad", "Alma Con Alma", and "Ay No". Lots of nice grooves, and a very tight band that includes a firey twin-sax frontline, plus some nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pachanga Con Puente
Tico, 1961. Near Mint-
A very nice record from the early 60s that marked Tito's first for the Tico label – and which was a hot set of pachanga grooves with a tight small combo feel, in a manner that really blew away his RCA work! Tracks include "Un Telegrama", "A Bailar Pachanga", "La ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A second wonderful look at the world of female pop in Spain – a nation that's not gotten nearly the same sort of global exposure over the years! We've stocked plenty of groovy French pop, in many formats – and even Italian gal pop has gotten lots of play recently – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ritmo & Blues
Cafe Con Bagels, 2015. New Copy
A great little set from the legendary Bobby Matos – and maybe the record that comes closest to his initial Latin soul sessions of the 60s! The album features more vocals than usual – including cool harmony soul from The Mighty Echoes, and a lead from the great Joe Bataan – plus ... CD
