From my collection, a Rare Costly Sought after Vinyl Disc :)
Today, I'm gazing toward the Latin genre made famous by the flawless label Fania Records in the 70s. Their records were produced and recorded so well even with age they sound like they were just pressed with an unbelievable sound stage !
Below I have posted an original video from my Youtube record collection from 1971 performing Che Che Cole. After you give this record a whirl you will know what seasonings are in that genre called Salsa.
Puerto Rican producer, writer, excellent trombonist that created magical hits every time he picked up that instrument. He's known by none other than Willie Colon.
Along side of him stood man with a voice that could knock down any building, Hector Lavoe also known as El Cantante de los Cantante's (The Singer of all Singers). His voice is only best heard on a vinyl recording.
This platter is named Cosa Nuestra (Our Thing), this in my book was their breakthrough in Salsa music. These cats were in their mid 20s making history with hits from this great album named Che Che Cole. Brisk, catchy, raunchy and effusive.
If you are new to the Salsa world, you have not missed out because even though these records are over 30 years old, they are reissuing them with glorious photos such as this one with Mr. Colon about to give a man a burial at sea in NYC's East River presented here in glorious 3D Dimensional Stereo Sound.
