Sweet funky Latin – lifted from the glory days of the late 60s Latin Soul scene! The set is the 3rd
in Harmless' dip into the Latin crates – following in the tradition of Broasted Or Fried and Freak Off with a stunning collection of 14 rare tunes, the likes of which will make you a boogaloo fanatic for ever! The selection is superb – with a wealth of tracks from the Fania/
Tico family of labels, plus others from rarer sources, all culled together with great notes, a nice cover, and way better sound quality than most other Latin reissues on the market. Heavy congas collide with rolling piano, electric bass
, and plenty of funky horns. English vocals prevail – and the grooves are extremely soulful throughout! Titles include "You've Been Talkin Bout Me Baby" by Ray Terrace, "I'll Be A Happy Man" by The Latin Blues Band, "Funky UP" by Mongo Santamaria, "Big T" by Tito Ramos, "Kenyatta" by Orquesta Joe Cain, "Taking Over" by Ralph Robles, "It's Not What You Say" by Louie Ramirez, "I Want You" by The Alexander Review, "Monkey See Monkey Do" by New Swing Sexted, and "Guajira Boogaloo" by Coco Lagos y Su Orates.
