New York Now!
Celluloid, 1983. Very Good+
A stripped-down rootsy session – similar to some of the sparer Afro-Cuban traditionalist sides that were coming out of New York in the early 80s. Ponce put the set together, and other players include Paquito D'Rivera, Jose Trapaga, Joe De Jesus, Nelson Rodriguez, and Bill Laswell. Most ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bad Breath
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Killer early work from Bobby Valentin – one of his few Latin Soul recordings, cut back when he was leading the band on trumpet! The album's got a lyrical side that's different from some of Bobby's other work – with a number of tracks in Spanish, but a few even better numbers in English ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ralfi
Fania, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Sublime falsetto soul from the great Ralfi Pagan – one of the most unique artists on the New York Latin scene at the start of the 70s! Ralfi shares some of the sweet soul modes of Joe Bataan – when Joe's in the right mood – but he also goes further, too – and really pushes ... LP, Vinyl record album

El Exigente
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A stunning album from Orquesta Harlow – one of their wildest of the 60s, and filled with delights! The record starts with this strange sound of a train pulling into a station, then rolls into a massive boogaloo groove that really sets the pace for the album – hitting hard with some ...

Young Man With A Horn
Fania, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
Massive work from the great Bobby Valentin – his first-ever album, issued back when he was a jazzy trumpeter! The record offers the "best in boogaloo" – as the cover states – and features a very mod mix of tunes that really gets at the mish-mash crossover energy of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coke
Sound Triangle, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Funky Latin breaks and very groovy grooves – the kind of record that you hear for only a second, and say "oh yeah, this is the stuff!" Coke were an obscure Florida combo who mixed together Latin, funk, and soul – served up in a crossover style that's halfway between the sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Temple
EFG, 1973. New Copy (reissue)
Percussionist Sabu Martinez is one of the all-time greats of Latin music – and this record is probably the rarest he ever cut! The album came out of Sweden, where Sabu was residing during the 70s – enjoying some success as an expatriot jazz player in the European scene. The album ... LP, Vinyl record album

Take A Trip Pussycat
Speed, Late 60s. New Copy (reissue)
A wild wild album of Latin soul – one of the maddest albums ever recorded for the legendary Speed label! The group, like a rare few others of their generation, are an insane mix of Latin jamming, psychedelic soul, and stoner funk riffing – all sifted together in a blender, with a sound ...

RCA, 1950s/1967. Near Mint-
They certainly got the title right on this one – as the album's overflowing with earlier hits by Perez Prado, re-recorded here for the hi-fi generation, with really swinging RCA sound! The numbers include some perennial Perez favorites – including "Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fania, 1979. Used
An amazing achievement for Ruben Blades – a full suite of tracks conceived and composed by Ruben as a "disco drama" on wax! The work isn't the disco-styled album you might think from this description – and is more of a mini-opera or concept album by Blades, one that features ... CD

Tico, 1959. Very Good-
Hear Machito the way you would have heard him in the classic days of the New York scene – at the legendary Palladium nightclub, playing before a large mixed crowd of dancers from all over the city! The tracks are nearly all cha cha cha's, and reflect the way that the larger bands were ... LP, Vinyl record album

Afro Caribbean Jazz
Montuno, 1987. Near Mint-
Afro Caribbean Jazz – but with a good dose of New York Latin as well – just the kind of wonderful blend we'd expect from Batacumbele on a classic like this! All tracks are nice and long, and are recorded with an open, free-flowing energy that was hardly used in Latin music at the time ... LP, Vinyl record album
