Ebirac All Stars & OthersEbirac All Stars (blue vinyl pressing) ... LP
Ebirac/Numero, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
Fantastic salsa sounds from Chicago – a city that's never been as well-known for the music as others on the coast – but which was home to the tiny but great Ebirac label – whose work is collected on this set! The package is an imagined compilation of key cuts that were only issued as singles – a format that dominated most of the label – and styles are heavily in the Puerto Rican side of the spectrum, as most of the groups here share that cultural legacy – as well as a few common players as well! Titles include "Donde Estabas" by Tipica Leal 79, "Las Frutas Del Pais" by La Justicia, "Plena Matrimonial Contraversia" by Ebirac All Stars, "A Bailar Son Montuno" by La Solucion, "Ano Nuevo Y Reyes" by Juventud Tipica 78, and "Under The Sun" by Under The Sun Orchestra. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousCult Cargo – Salsa Boricua De Chicago ... CD
Numero, Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Incredible third coast salsa from the late 70s – amazing stuff from the orquestras of Carlos Ruiz and his Ebirac label – made by singers and players in Chicago's Puerto Rican community of the period that stands up just as well today! Chicago salsa, unlike more nationally popular styles, was rooted in the city's rich Puerto Rican community. They cover material adapted from traditionals and more, done with less pan-Caribbean derived sounds than the Cuban-rooted salseros of NYC and Miami. As fondly remembered as the players of the Chicago salsa scene are by the older Puerto Rican community, records by Orquestas La Justicia, La Solucion, Juventad Tipica '78, Tipica Leal '79 and others are terribly hard to find. Not only has Numero managed to compile a terrific batch of songs, the sound quality is impeccable, too! Titles include "Plena Matrimonial" by Ebirac All-Stars featuring La Calandria & Ramito, "Stone Flower", "Alegre Jibarito", "Guaguanco Coroco" and more by La Justicia, "Afro Theme" and "Ano Nuevo Y Reyes" by Juventud Tipica '78, "A Bailar Son Montuno", "El Gordo Y El Flaco" and "Mini Minoso" by La Solucion, "Mozambique" by La Solucion featuring Mongo Santamaria, "Donde Estabas" by Tipica Leal '79 and more, plus the bonus "Ebirac Radio Spot". The booklet is lavish, too – full of notes and photos that that make it all the more revelatory – providing a historical perspective that can't be overpraised! CD
