✨✧ Alfredo LinaresLo Que Tengo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
ALG/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A salsa smoker from the great Alfredo Linares – recorded at the start of the 80s, and almost a summation of all the greatness Linares had packed into his music during the decade before! Alfredo is on piano throughout – really driving things along with a rhythmic pulse and the kind of energy that almost make him a Charlie Palmieri of the Venezuelan scene – backed by a combo that features two trumpets, two trombones, and plenty of heavy percussion! Most of the tunes are upbeat and very jamming – in kind of a salsa/descarga mode – and even the few mellow moments open up with some great piano work that makes you happy you're taking a bit of a breather. Titles include "Friends", "Mi Nina", "La Pachanga Del Amor", "A Donde Vas", "Sonando Tambo", "Se Formo La Fiesta", and "Sujetate La Lengua". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Alfredo LinaresMi Nuevo Ritmo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
INS/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1974. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
There's plenty of new rhythms going on here – that special way that Alfredo Linares has of taking styles and sounds from the New York scene, and creating all sorts of cool and unusual hybrids with a South American recording like this! As with some of his other albums of the time, there's a vibe that has older Latin modes coming into play with some contemporary touches – but all in a way that feels as if Linares is a few years behind the American scene, but stepping sideways into a groove that's greatly all his own! Salsa mixes with smaller combo 60s modes – topped with vocals from Kiko Fuentes, Roy Betancourt, and Enrique Fabian – on titles that include "Ritmo Caliente", "Mi Musica", "La Musica Brava", "Amor", "Arrolando", and "Mi Nuevo Ritmo".

✨✧ Alfredo Linares Y Su SonoraYo Traigo Boogaloo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Mag/Vampi Soul (Spain), 1969. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A killer Latin set from late 60s Peru – one of those mighty Latin cookers from the Mag Records label – a small imprint that never got much circulation up here in the states, but which was clearly tuned in to the best modes from New York! Alfredo Linares is a real cooker on the piano – as fierce and fast as any of the uptown scene up north – and the album's got a few boogaloo slammers mixed with other great guaguanco grooves – on titles that include "Yo Traigo Boogaloo", "Boogaloo En Ambiente", "Como Yo No Hay Dos", "Peruvian Guaguanco", "Congalanque", "Linares Blues", "Tutu Tata", "Sabor Tropical", and "Probandolo Se Sabe".

✨✧ Alfredo LinaresAlfredo Linares Y Su Sonora Vol 1 – The Mag Years (3 x 7 inch singles) ... 7-inch
Mag/Rocafort (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 3 x 7 inch singles ... Out Of Stock
Killer cuts from Alfredo Linares – a Peruvian pianist of the 60s, but one who works here in a groove that rivals some of the best New York material from Charlie Palmieri at the time! The set brings together six hard-hamming tracks from Alfredo's recordings for the Mag Records label in his homeland – and the music is a blend of Latin jazz and boogaloo – all tracks that are burning with lots of heavy percussion, and driven on strongly by the bold work of Linares on the keys! Titles include "Cool", "El Pito", "Descarga", "Yo Traigo Boogaloo", "Sin Tu Querer", and "Tutu Tata". 7-inch, Vinyl record

VariousGozalo – Bugalu Tropical Vol 1 ... CD
Vampi Soul (Spain), Late 60s. Used ... $9.99
A killer batch of boogaloo material – but not from the usual sources! Although boogaloo is a genre normally associated with the New York scene at the end of the 60s, the music here all hails from Peru and represents a great new sound – music inspired by the Nuyorican originals, but which often take things into whole new directions! The Peruvian approach to boogaloo is a bit looser than the New York one – a bit more open and free, and often heavily touched by jazz music as well, resulting in a sound that's also got plenty of hard-jamming descarga elements too! Given the racial makeup of the Peruvian scene, there's a bit less soul influence going on too – lyrics are more often in Spanish, and less inspired by the Harlem sound – but the overall rhythms still share plenty with the Latin soul styles of New York, and provide a great foil for some of the jazzy instrumentation. This package is a massive discovery in music – one that goes way beyond some of the few Peruvian Latin titles from the time that have been reissued – and it's overflowing with amazing work that's totally new to our ears! Titles include "Vives Boogaloo" by Charlie Palomares, "Baby Boogaloo" by Nilo Espinosa, "Hilton's Descarga" by Los Hilton's, "El Pito" by Alfredo Linares, "Guayaba" by La Sonora De Lucho Macedo, "Que Rico Sabor" by Al Valdes, "Ensueno" by Mario Allison Y Su Combo, "Yo Traigo Boogaloo" by Alfredo Linares, "Juan Jose" by Nico Estrada, "Do The Boogaloo" by Nilo Espinosa, "Guajira" by Al Valdes, "El Diablo" by S Montez Y Sus Guantanameros, and "Clap Your Hands" by Tito Chicoma.
