Originally released in 1970 in Mexico. 70 by Perez Prado is an absolutely stellar set of songs that has a bit of everything you love all assembled in a way that sounds remarkably fresh and exciting on every tune. This is some seriously groove-oriented Latin soul with plenty of touches of the psychedelic sound that was en vogue at the time. Mostly instrumental, the album has, at its core, a funky sound that calls to mind The Meters, yet it's an incredibly diverse and sonically rich album (let's not forget Pérez Prado was called "The King of Mambo"): blaring horns, Latin percussion, jazzy flute, great organ work, bouncy bass lines, sparse, funky guitar and warbly psychedelic wah-wah all topped off with the occasional soulful grunts. Very highly recommended. Titles include "Simplemente Maria," "Traces," "Guada Guadaloupe," "Vuelveme A Querer," "Mexico 70," "Los Dos Laredos," "La Octavia Religion," "Fanny Bump," "Mambo Bump," and more.
