This CD brilliantly outlines what happened when the restless youth of Spanish Harlem collided with the 1960s, and created controversial sparks. Indeed, to this new breed of Hispanic Harlemites, the mambos and cha-chas of their parents' generation were a drag. Instead, they tuned to psychedelic fashions, wild parties, hip culture and the R&B of their time. The result was intoxicating. For a brief period, from 1966 to 1969, a multitude of Latin soul/boogaloo bands soaked raw Hispanic rhythms neck-deep in African-American rhythm & blues. It was a glorious moment that sadly stopped as soon as the '60s slid into the '70s. This CD illustrates some of the Latin soul era's finest moments. Culled from the Fania family of labels -- Fania / Tico / Cotique / Alegre -- it evokes a time when everyone in New York City was doing the boogaloo. Last copies.
