Tico, 1961. Very Good- ... $14.99
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 Charanga", "Pachanga Mood", and "Pachanga Beat". Lots more goodies, and a nice set of grooves! LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Celia Cruz & Tito PuenteAlma Con Alma – The Heart & Soul Of Celia Cruz & Tito Puente ... LP
Tico, Late 60s. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A really great project from Tito Puente – maybe not his only collaboration with Celia Cruz, but maybe one of the best – a top-to-bottom album of unified vision, topped with sublime vocals from the legendary lady! The set was arranged and produced by Tito – and brings together tunes that are maybe a bit rootsier than some of his other work – that return to tradition that Puente was clamoring for as the 70s began, as a way of shaking off what he felt were the worse influences of the Latin Soul youngsters (not something we agree with ourselves!) The vibe of the album is quite different than its 1970 date – more like something from pre-Castro Havana at times, but with an updated, more sophisticated sense of arrangements and percussion. Titles include "Guiro 6/8", "Chango", "Alguien Vendra", "Cuyi", "Sahara", "Elegua", and "Salsa De Tomate". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing! Cover has some surface wear, aging, and appears to be autographed by Celia Cruz!)

Tico, 1969. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
A groovy groovy classic from Celia and Tito! The record is one of the pair's strong sides from the Latin soul years – and as usual, Celia really benefits from Tito's strong musical backing. The set includes their great cover of "Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In", done in a boogaloo soul style that's very tasty! Other numbers include "En El Batey", "Yo Soy La Voz", "Genesis", and "Mi Querida Boriquen". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Woody Herman & Tito PuenteHerman's Heat & Puente's Beat! ... LP
Everest, 1958. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A great little meeting of Latin and jazz players – an oft-overlooked album in Puente's catalog of the time! The album features Woody leading a small group of jazz players – including Al Cohn, Paul Quinichette, Billy Byers, and Nick Travis – with extra timbales by Puente and congas by Ray Barretto – and the overall approach is light but tight, with more of a straight jazz component than you'd find on most of Tito's records from the time, but also a wonderfully driven groove that still keeps the rhythms mostly on the Latin end of things! Titles include "Cha Cha Chick", "Tito Meets Woody", "Pillar To Post", "Midnight Sun", "Blue Station", "Mambo Herd", and "Balu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light surface wear & some aging, tiny split on top seam.)

Great 60s work from Tito! The material here shows Tito at his best, past his big band years, and hitting the tighter harder sound that made this period so great. El Rey's totally at home with the group, and tracks include "Batacumba", "Malanga Con Yuca", "Donde Vas", "Gata Miau, Miau", "Africa Habla", and the classic "Oye Como Va", one of Tito's all time greatest!

✨✧ Tito PuenteLet's Cha Cha With Puente ... LP
RCA, 1957. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
It's easy to cha cha when Tito Puente's in the house – especially when he's working in his near-perfect RCA mode of the late 50s! The tunes are nothing fancy, but the execution is sublime – tight Latin rhythms at the bottom, done in a way that's never too bombastic – topped with some jazzier flourishes from the horn section, in ways that make each number sparkle nicely with a strong sense of color and tone. There's a slight hint of modernism in the charts here, but never one that gets in the way of the groove – and the rhythms benefit nicely from well-crafted work on piano and vibes as well. Titles include "Vibe Guajira", "Cubarama", "Cha Charugao", "It's The Bururu", and "Lindo Cha Cha". LP, Vinyl record album
(Mono pressing with deep groove. Cover has light ringwear, some aging, and bumped corners.)

✨✧ Tito PuentePara Los Rumberos ... LP
Tico, 1972. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A heavy groover from Tito Puente – recorded in a back to basics style, but with a hard percussive edge! The sound here has plenty of jazzy touches – almost in the mode of Tito's funky big band records of the mid 70s, but with less of the funk or the large group touches – almost a 70s jazzy update of his best work from earlier years! The set is proof that Puente could keep his fire burning brightly even through many years of changes in Latin music – and the set features titles that include "Batuka", "China", "Palladium Days", "Nina Y Senora", "Para Los Rumberos", and "El Catire". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Tito PuenteQuatro – The Definitive Collection (Cuban Carnival/Night Beat/Dance Mania/Revolving Bandstand/Bonus Edition) (5LP Box Set) ... LP
RCA/Sony, Late 50s. Near Mint- 5LP Box Set ... Out Of Stock
A smoking set of work from Tito Puente – four classic albums, wrapped together in a single package – with a bonus album of rare material too! First up is Cuban Carnival – one of Tito Puente's finest albums for RCA, with a tight hard bunch of cuts that have a Cuban big band sound, and a lot more drive to them than some of Tito's other work for the label. Ray Bryant wrote the great track "Cuban Fantasy", and Tito contributed most of the other tunes on the set – a really unique batch of material that includes "Yambeque", "Elegua Chango", "Que Sera", and "Cha Cha De Pollos". The percussion is nice and hard, and the band grooves in tight ensemble playing throughout! Night Beat is a really jazzy effort that was cut with a top-shelf list of players! The groove's a bit different than some of Tito's other work – but in a good way, and one that has him stretching past straight Latin to mix in a heavy dose of jazz – really getting the most of players who include Eddie Bert on trombone, Gene Quill on saxes, Bernie Glow on trumpet, and Barry Galbraith on guitar. The rhythms are key – and in addition to drums from Jimmy Cobb, the album also features Mongo Santamaria on congas and Willy Correa on bongos – not to mention more percussion from Tito himself! Dance Mania is a burner of a set from Tito Puente – very well titled to suit the energy of the session! The tracks are all highly rhythmic numbers – short, but filled with jazzy horn flourishes and the kind of snapping rhythms that made the Puente group one of the biggest crossover favorites of the 50s. Tunes nicely mix up vocals with some more pronounced jazz soloing – getting a heck of a lot into a relatively small space, and really keeping up the energy of the record overall. Revolving Bandstand is a joint project from Tito Puente and Buddy Morrow – both leaders who recorded some great work for the label in the 50s, sounding great here in a unique variation on their classic sounds! The album has both Morrow and Puente playing back to back – creating a "revolving bandstand" that has both groups playing the same tunes at the same time – a very odd approach, but one that comes off well here – mixing Tito's Latin and Buddy's swing nicely, without too much confusion in the instrumentation. There's some great vibes on a few tracks! Last up is Tito Puente Quatro Bonus Edition – a set that features 13 rare tracks, with singles, outtakes, and more – including "La Virgen De La Macarena", "Moonlight In Vermont", "The Continental (alt take)", "Blue Moon (alt)", "Ran Kan Kan", "Timbal Y Bongo", and many outtakes of "Pa Los Rumberos"! All LPs on 180 gram vinyl – with liner notes too! LP, Vinyl record album

We're not sure, but we think the set's a compilation – and the notes say that a few tracks are courtesy of RCA and Carino Records. Titles include "Ran Kan Kan", "Oye Como Va", "El Cayuco", "Complicacion", "Imagenes", "Para Los Rumberos", "Barabarabatiri", and "Kwa Kwa". LP, Vinyl record album

Tico, 1972. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
An early 70s session from Celia Cruz & Tito Puente – but one that's recorded with much rootsier touches than you might guess from the date! The album's kind of a precursor to Celia's further rise in the 70s salsa scene in New York – and offers up a nice reworking of older themes and sounds, put together here with a sense of clarity that stands out from some of the earlier Cruz/Puente collaborations. The mighty Joe Cain produced, and arrangements are all by Tito – on titles that include "Vaca Pinta", "De Noche", "Bonco", "Tatalibaba", "Extrano Amor", "Mi Rico Son", and "A Todos Mi Amigos".

Tico, 1960s. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
A smoking compilation of some of Tito's best sides for the Tico label – most of which were recorded in the early and mid 60s, when he was in a very hard-hitting mode! There's loads of great groovers here – like the boogaloo cuts "Fat Mama" and "TP's Shingaling", and more traditional Latin tunes like "A Noro Morales", "Ay Carino", "Timbalito", "Fancy Feet", and the classic "Ran Kan Kan"!

✨✧ Tito PuenteCha Cha With Tito Puente At Grossingers ... LP
RCA, 1960. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Tito Puente and his group caught live in The Catskills – jamming strongly at Grossinger's Hotel on one of their best sessions for RCA! Despite the resort setting of the set, Tito and the group make things cook just like they were back in the city – and the liveness of the set seems to bring an even sharper edge than usual to the percussion! Players in the group include Johnny Pacheco on both flute and percussion, Bobby Rodriguez on bass, and Ray Barretto on congas – and Tito himself also plays a bit of vibes alongside his familiar timbales. Tracks include "Grossinger's Cha Cha", "Managua, Nicaragua", "Old Devil Moon", "Miami Beach Cha Cha", and "At The Balalaika". Surprisingly lively, and a Jack Davis cover to boot!

Not really a "Broadway" album, as you might guess from the title – although Tito and group do play a version of the soul hit "On Broadway" on the set – but a nicely-honed set with a strong Latin jazz groove, much more back to basics than some of Tito's work from the 70s. Players include Ray Gonzales, Jorge Dalto, Afredo De La Fe, and Jerry Gonzales – and tracks include versions of Freddie Hubbard's "First Light", Milton Nascimento's "Soul Song", and Toots Thieleman's "Bluesette" – as well as the originals "Jo Je Ti" and "TP's Especial".

Concord, 1983/1985. Used 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
2 different albums from Tito Puente – nicely packaged here in a single set! On Broadway is not really a "Broadway" album, as you might guess from the title – although Tito and group do play a version of the soul hit "On Broadway" on the set – but a nicely-honed set with a strong Latin jazz groove, much more back to basics than some of Tito's work from the 70s. Players include Ray Gonzales, Jorge Dalto, Afredo De La Fe, and Jerry Gonzales – and tracks include versions of Freddie Hubbard's "First Light", Milton Nascimento's "Soul Song", and Toots Thieleman's "Bluesette" – as well as the originals "Jo Je Ti" and "TP's Especial". Mambo Diablo is a stone cooker from Tito Puente's great back to basics years of the 80s – a time when he was really moving towards the Latin jazz of his roots – working without any singers, or any contemporary gimmicks, and letting loose with tight combos and top-line jazz players! This set features Puente on vibes, timbales, and percussion – grooving nicely with the great Sonny Bravo on piano, whose bold lines definitely help shape the grooves – giving them plenty of New York 60s pulse, alongside work by Jimmy Frisuara on trumpet and trombone, Mario Rivera on soprano and tenor, and Ray Gonzalez on trumpet. Bobby Rodriguez handles bass, and Johnny "Dandy" Rodriguez brings in added percussion with congalero Jose Madara – and tracks include "Take Five", "Mambo Diablo", "Pick Yourself Up", "Eastern Joy Dance", "China", and "No Pienses Asi".

Tico/Fania, 1973. Used ... Out Of Stock
An excellent set from Tito Puente – very funky, unlike most of his other work from the time! The record has a great electric vibe to it – thanks to a hip bass player in the group, to Charlie Palmieri, who plays organ and electric piano on the record, and to Tito himself, who's never sounded better, playing a range of percussion, vibes, and electric piano too! The best tunes have a funky NuYorica groove – nice and driving, about as funky as Tito can get – with jazz solos by Sal Nistico, Dick Menza, Rene McLean, and others. Cuts include "Black Brothers", "110th Street and 5th Ave", "Ritual Fire Dance", "Mambo Diablo", and "Ah! Ah!". Very cool, and a very different side of his style! CD

The set's extremely raw, with a very tight groove – and the sound is incredible – easily enough to make this one of Tito's best percussion dates ever! Titles include "Ti Mon Bo", "Elequana", "Bragada", "Alaumba Chemache", "Hot Timbales", and "Four By Two". CD

Holy cow! Tito recorded a heck of a lot of great music for the RCA label during the 50s – and you'll get plenty of it on this amazing set that features a total of 108 tracks on 6CDs! The package has a logic that seems to be historical – except for the fact that the historical progression of music is repeated in a similar direction on both volumes of the set, meaning that they both include work from the years 1949 to 1959, although packaged separately. Titles on this first volume include "Ran Kan Kan", "Guayaba", "Chang", "Mi Chiquita Quiere", "Black Pearl", "Brazil", "Camellia", "Happy Land Of Hunza", "Hong Kong Mambo", "Flying Down To Rio", "Lotus Land", "Mama Inez", "Elegua Chango", "Kiss Of Fire", "Una Mujer", "Philadelphia Mambo", and "Miramar".

Hey, they're not kidding with this title – as Tito really goes to town with a set of mambo tunes, grooving it up with a hard heavy percussive edge! The title's one of the first on the Tico label (as an LP), and it really sets the pace for some of the label's excellent work to come – as Tito and crew play with a tightness and energy that's missing from a lot of their earlier work. If you like Latin vibes, you'll find plenty of them on this set – and tracks include "Mambo Inn", "Mambo Tipico", "Mambo Rumbon", "Mambo Lenko", "Mambolino", "Ran Kan Kan", and "Titoro". CD

A unique Venezuelan album by Tito Puente – and one of the best we've heard from his years for RCA! The groove here is very hard – very deserving of the "Mas Dance Mania" in the title – and there's a strong Cuban groove that really drives most of the tunes, with Tito's percussion really turned up a fair bit in the mix! There's a fair bit of tracks that roll along in a hard mambo or guaguanco mode – and even though there's vocals on many numbers, the real focus here is on the percussion. Titles include "Con Sandunga", "Cua Cua", "Dance Mania", "Guancona", "Una Mujer", "Tamanco", "Separala Tambien", and "A Gozar Timbero". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousCaribbean In America – 1915 to 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), Late 10s/1920s/1930s/1940s/1950s/Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $19.99 29.99
Caribbean styles hit the American scene – then get transformed into something completely different in this huge collection of recordings that span styles that include jazz, Latin, R&B, soul, and blues! In some cases, the Caribbean element comes through in the song structure – which might be lifted directly, then reworked for an American audience. But at other times, the influence is more in the rhythms or instrumentation – used as inspiration to then create something new – a bit in the way that American soul would provide the inspiration for reggae in the 60s. The package has the usual fantastic Fremeaux presentation – with a big booklet of historical notes, in both French and English, to support 66 titles that include "Jamaica Farewell" by Sam Cooke, "Salty Fish Aki Rice" by Ruth Wallis, "Bajan Girl" by Lionel Belasco, "Sly Mongoose" by Sam Manning, "El Gallero" by Dioris Valladares & Angel Viloria, "El Mambo Diablo" by Tito Puente, "Hey Little Girl" by Professor Longhair, "Un Poco Loco" by Bud Powell, "Chee Koo Baby" by Lloyd Price, "Shrinking Up Fast" by Camille Howard, "Ojai" by Joe Lutcher, "Salee Dame" by Albert Nicholas & Baby Dodds, "Inside" by Hector The Ram, "Run Come See Jerusalem"b y Stan Wilson, "I Learn A Merengue" by Robert Mitchum, "Afro Blue" by Cal Tjader, "La Maricutana" by Damiron & Chapuseaux, "Magical Joe" by Herb Jeffries, "Begin The Beguine" by Charlie Parker, "Make It Do" by Slim Gaillard, "Guitarambo" by Mickey Baker, and "Don't Touch Me Nylon" by The Charmer (aka Louis Farrakhan).

Fania/Jazzman (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... $6.99 16.99
The vaults of Fania Records, plumbed by the Jazzman crew – all in a double-strength approach to Latin grooves! The wealth of great music on Fania, Tico, and related labels is well-known to Latin groovers worldwide – but the Jazzman crew have managed to bring a nicely fresh perspective to the labels here – going for cuts that show the labels' appeal to the funky 45 underground, thanks to a healthy dose of soul, jazz, and funk in the mix! Most of these numbers represent the cream of the crop of the New York scene of the late 60s and early 70s – not the mainstream one, but the side that was bubbling under uptown – as influences from Spanish Harlem mixed in nicely with older influences from Cuba and Puerto Rico. CD features 18 tracks in all – most of the numbers that were previously on the expensive 7" box sets that were part of the Fania/Jazzman project – and the set also features all the original notes on each tune too. Titles include "Doug's Room" by Mauricio Smith, "Come An Get It" by Eddie Palmieri & Cal Tjader, "Soana" by Noro Morales, "Hit The Bongo" by Tito Puente, "Geronimo" by Bobby Valentin, "Fever" by La Lupe, "Soul Drummers" by Ray Barretto, "Black Brothers" by Tito Puente, "Mambomongo" by Mongo Santamaria, "Camel Walk" by The Latinaires, "Tighten Up" by Al Escobar, "I Got The Feeling" by Chollo, "Use It Before You Lose It" by Bobby Valentin, and "Never Learned To Dance" by Harvey Averne.

As with the previous entry in this series, the sound here is plenty darn soulful throughout – lyrics that are often in English, and rhythms that borrow heavily from American funk and soul of the late 60s – mixing African-American musical styles with Puerto Rican and Cuban elements – all to come up with a groove that's as fresh today as it was back in the Spanish Harlem scene of the time! Previously unreleased tracks include "Evil Ways" by Pete & Louie, and the full length version of "O Elefante" by Ray Barretto – and other tunes include "Rise Up" by Orchestra Harlow, "Safari" by Tito Puente, "Revolucionando" by New Swing Sextet, "Times Are Changing" by Jimmy Sabater, "MC2" by Willie Colon, "Crystal Blue Persuasion" by Joe Bataan, "Musica Del Alma" by TNT Boys, "Here Comes The Judge" by Pete Rodriguez, "Ape Walk" by Al Escobar, and "Rat Race" by Ralfi Pagan.

An assortment of jazz-tinged grooves from the mighty Fania Records – many of which show an older Cuban influence, but update the sound strongly with a hipper New York feel! The work ranges from the 60s through the 70s – and although some cuts have vocals, the main focus here is definitely on instrumentation – as most of the numbers have some especially great solo moments over the rhythms. Titles include "Alto Songo" by Johnny Pacheco, "Quimbombo" by Machito, "El Manisero" by Tito Rodriguez, "Baile Mi Son" by Tito Puente, "Besame" by Mongo Santamaria, "Bronx Pachanga USA" by Charlie Palmieri, "Pa Huele" by Eddie Palmieri, and "Algo Nuevo" by Ray Barretto. 16 in all.

The sweet sounds of summer – served up in ways that sparkle nicely with the best pop paradise touches of the postwar years! The music here is a catchy mix of pop, rock, and vocal numbers – plus a few surprises from other styles too – and as in other titles in this series from Bear Family, the songs are all themed around summer modes – time at the beach, fun in the sun, love in the summer, and so on – all delivered with a vibe that's as wistful and playful as the image on the cover!

The set's a great mixture of smooth CTI electric funk and Latin-oriented grooves – and it features work by Ray on congas and percussion, plus a list of players that includes Tito Puente, Charlie Palmieri, Steve Gadd, John Tropea, Carlos Franzetti, and Willie Torres. The melds the styles beautifully – with plenty of languid, rubbery jamming with percussion that thumps just hard enough! Really kind of a stunner from '79 – one that came at welcome time for both Barretto and CTI! Includes the great electric Latin groover "Mambotango", plus "The Old Castle", "La Cuna", and a sublime vocal remake of Stevie Wonder's "Pastime Paradise"! CD

Decca/Reboot Stereophonic, 1959. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great document of the Jewish/Latin crossover scene of the late 50s – and proof that the Catskills and Miami were every bit as important to Latin music as the scene in Spanish Harlem! Pianist Irving Fields headed up a hot little trio during the 50s – playing to high-toned crowds uptown, but also winning the respect of bandleaders Xavier Cugat and Tito Puente with his lively approach to Latin rhythms on the keys – a style that's got the same mix of syncopation and firey fingerwork you'd find on sides by Joe Loco, Eddie Cano, or other Latin pianists at the time. This set's got a kitschy title, but a great little groove – it beautifully mixes the emotive themes of older Yiddish music with the newer groove the New York crowd was digging at the time. Titles include "Belz", "Pretty As A Moonbeam", "Where Shall I Go", "Raisins & Almonds", "Cha Cha No 29", "Miami Merengue", and "David's Dance". CD

There's some great heavy percussion on the bottom of most tracks – and even when the guitars are fierce and fuzzy, the overall sound is nicely rhythmic, and often a bit funky – a great blend of global elements, and coming across with the same sort of power as the best Latin funk albums from Peru! There's perhaps a bit more psychedelia here than on those records, but never in a way that's too indulgent or dated – thanks to some lean, clean arrangements. Titles include a cover of Tito Puente's "Guayaba", plus "Adios A Jimi Hendrix", "Cajon De Castanas", "Llamada Del Sur", "Buscado", "Donde Esta El Doctor", and "Mas Alla Del Sahara". CD

The style's a bit like some of Tito Puente's sessions with Abbe Lane from the same stretch – but is arguably even better, because Clooney's really one heck of a great singer in this setting!

Most tracks are in an acoustic mode, but slight electric touches warm things up nicely – making for a really unique Latin jazz groove that was years ahead of its time – and a vibe that still makes this album one that we go back for time and time again!

Charlie Otwell's the pianist on the date, and he contributed some great tunes to the record – including "Song For Cal", "A Night In London", "Chile Con Soul", "Nueva Charanga", and "Quieto".

The album includes Cal's semi-hit "Black Orchid", plus "Mi China", "Bonita", "Contigo", and "Mambo At The M". Very nice, with a sound that would become Cal's trademark in the years right after this album.

The style here is more Fania than Fantasy Records – and Cal jumps right in with some great work on vibes – ringing out in a tight, Joe Cuba-esque mode on cuts that include great covers of "El Watusi" and "Bang Bang" – plus "Gringo City", "Vibe Mambo", and "Mambo Show".

Harmless (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the best compilations of funky Latin tracks we've ever heard! The set continues in the excellent tradition of the Harmless label – and features 14 Latin stunners with a totally hard groove. The groundwork for the material lies amidst the Latin Soul and NuYorica generations – and most of this stuff is on the Spanish Harlem groove, with a mix of soul, Latin, jazz, and funky styles. Titles include "Kako's Boogaloo" by Kako, "I Want A Chance For Romance" by Hector Rivera, "My Shingaling" by Joey Pastrana, "Creation" by The Latinaires, "Use It Before You Lose It" by Bobby Valentin, "Flight To Cuba" by Fire, "Groovetime" by Monguito Santamaria, "So Fine" by Joe Bataan, "Black Brothers" by Tito Puente, "Broasted Or Fried" by The St Vincent Latinaires, and "Sing A Simple Song" by Roberto Roena y Su Apollo Sound.

✨✧ VariousEl Barrio – Gangsters, Latin Soul, & The Birth Of Salsa 1967 to 1975 (UK pressing) ... CD
Fania/V2 (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the hippest reissues to come from the newly-invigorated Fania Records – a brilliant exploration of the sound of Latin Soul that broke hard in the New York scene at the end of the 60s! The package is equally heavy on the "soul" as it is on the "Latin" – so alongside the expected boogaloo and shing-a-ling styles, you'll also find a fair number of tracks that have a much more soul-based style – a sound that echoes the modes going down in African-American culture at the time, but which comes off slightly different here – thanks to some unusual rhythms, instrumentation, and production techniques! The track list goes way past the obvious and overly-familiar – thanks to great compilation efforts by Adrian Gibson, Dean Rudland, and Lubi Jovanovich, who also wrote the notes. Titles include "Do You Feel It" by Joe Cuba, "Big T" by Tito Ramos, "Johnny's No Good" by Joe Bataan, "Brother Where Are You" by Ralfi Pagan, "Black Brothers" by Tito Puente, "Either You Have It Or You Don't" by Charlie Palmieri, "New York Soul" by Ray Barretto, "Si Dame Tu Amor" by Cafe, "Boogaloo Lebron" by Lebron Brothers, "Que Se Sepa" by Roberto Roena, "Red Garter Strut" by Fania All Stars, "Puerto Rican Soul" by Pete Bonet, and "Measure For Measure" by Alexander Review.

✨✧ VariousFreak Off – Latin Breakbeats, Basslines, & Boogaloo ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Heavy Latin funk and soul! This excellent set follows in the same vein as Harmless' other Latin sets – dipping into obscurities of the late 60s and early 70s to come up with a cool batch of cuts that sound totally fresh today. And even though some of these tracks have already been reissued on the full CDs by the artists, the general groove of the set makes the tracks really great together – especially since some of the best cuts are from albums that are otherwise not that great. Titles include "Para Los Rumberos" by Tito Puente, "Psychedelic Blues" by Willie Bobo, "Control" by Ismael Quinones, "Freak Off" by Orchestra Harlow, "Black & Blues" by The Latin Soul Drives, "Spanish Grease" by El Chicano, "Combolu" by El Gran Combo, "Es Tu Cosa" by Joe Bataan, "Que Se Sepa" by Roberto Roena Y Su Apollo Sound, and "Fun City Shingaling" by Joe Quijano & His Conjunto Cachana.

✨✧ VariousGilles Peterson – Fania DJ Series (UK pressing) ... CD
Fania (UK), 1960s/1970s. Used 2CD ... Out Of Stock
The first-ever Latin collection from Gilles Peterson – pulled from the legendary vaults of Fania Records, and featuring a fair bit of lesser-known tunes! Even in a set like this, Gilles is at the top of his game – and manages to find a way to bring a new sense of freshness and energy to the oft-compiled Fania catalog – mixing Latin soul with jazzier cuts that veer towards some of the work that we know from other Peterson compilations – as Gilles jumps around easily from album to album, decade to decade, covering all of the labels in the Fania empire! The 2CD set features 26 tracks in all – and definitely lives up to all of the promise you might expect. Titles include "Mi Mambo Conga" by Eddie Palmieri, "Coco Seco" by Bobby Valentin, "Wata Wasuri" by Tito Puente, "Shades Of Time" by Roberto Roena, "Mambo De Bataan" by Joe Bataan, "Saona" by Noro Morales, "Mambo Moderno" by Vladimir, "Last Tango In Paris" by Willie Rosario, "Lluvia Con Nieve" by Mon Rivera, "Vitamina" by Kako, "Ricardo Ray In Orbit" by Ricardo Ray & Bobby Cruz, "The Oracle" by Sabu Martinez, and "Sandstorm" by Charlie Palmieri.

✨✧ VariousLatin Spectrum II – Compiled By Hector Torres ... LP
BBE (UK), 2000. Very Good 3LP ... Out Of Stock
Fantastic dancefloor Latin tunes – compiled by Kenny Dope's uncle, Hector Torres! Kenny says that Hector taught him most of what he knows about Latin music – and you can bet that with a credential like that, the selection of cuts on the set far surpasses the standard compilation of Latin grooves! The groove here is prime mid 70s salsa – and Torres does an excellent job of sorting through 70s albums that may get lost in the shuffle, but which include some very nice cuts that often get overlooked because the album itself isn't a total standout. Cuts include "Periquito Pin Pin" by Tommy Olivencia, "Algo Facil" by Papo Luca & Sonora Poncena, "Arinara" by Joe Cuba Sextet, "Tierra Colora" by Nestor Torres, "Canuto" by Gil Lopez & Sonny Bravo, "Que Se Vaya" by Bomba Camara, "Ella Esta En Otre" by Justo Betancourt, and "Corta El Bonche" by Tito Puente.
