Raices for Nemperor from 1975.
A fantastic piece of obscure latin recorded in Miami and produced by Bruce Botnick(who had previously produced both The Doors and MC5 !!!)
Ace latin percussionist Sammy Figueroa was behind this project after his first professional experience came at the age of 18 with the band of bassist Bobby Valentin. During that time he co-founded this innovative fusion Brazilian/Latin group with Rafael Cruz, which broke ground for many of today’s bands.
A near perfect blend of both Puerto Rican and Brazilian influences which moves from 100mph latin flyers to funky breaks this is another post worthy of the accolade :
All Killer,No Filler !!!
No reissues in any format-ripped from the original vinyl @320
