Product description

Product description

Our product to treat is a regular product. There is not the imitation. From Japan by the surface mail because is sent out, take it until arrival as 7-14 day. Thank you for you seeing it.

Showcasing the Latin Boogaloo sound--basically a fusion of black soul and Latin rhythms--that dominated the New York underground from 1966 to 1969, Big Bad Boogaloo is the missing link between the urban funk of James Brown and the riotous cha cha beats of Cuba and Puerto Rico. As usual with all Harmless releases, the compilation is jam-packed with quality tracks throughout. Obscure artists as well as the more well-known figures of the Latin movement sit together comfortably making this an ideal album for connoisseurs as well as those new to the genre. It kicks off in style with Joe Bataan's "Subway Joe", a tale of life on the New York metro backed by a chugginly infectious backbeat and frenetic double handclaps, followed by offerings from Ray Barreto ("Mercy, Mercy Baby"), ace percussionist Orlando Marin ("Out of My Mind") and The Tico Allstars with a superb live version of "Descarga Bugaloo" featuring Latin superstar Tito Puente--a track that encapsulates the ethos of the compilation perfectly. This is good fun and a perfect antidote for those disillusioned with the modern dance scene. --Miles Atkinson
