RAY BARRETTO - LATINO CON SOUL






















Ray Barretto for West Side Latino from 1967.
Descarga steamrollers,proto salsa mambos , boogaloo , Latino con Soul says it all - this one's got the lot!

Firmly in the boogaloo (Latin soul) era, Latino con Soul would be Barretto at his hippest -- except for the pernicious strings. "Eras" is remade with a sappier, poppier sound; this time vocals are by Adalberto Santiago and Pete Bonet. Of the two fine boogaloo tracks, DJs are likely to find "Do You Dig It?" more useful. Otherwise, all are solid Latin, Latin jazz, and percussion tracks, two-thirds of them originals. Henry Jerome's production ensures that the horns are prominent, especially on "Trompeta y Trombon." ~ Tony Wilds, All Music Guide
Ripped @320 from the long deleted Polydor cd issue in 1994.

Yeah! I grabbed the CD reissue long ago; this is a smoking session!
I've had some hot house parties with "tu propio dolor"...

Luis said...

This file is corrupted. Can´t be unzipped the last track 8. Can you upload this single track separately?

Thanks

Luis

luis-download again that usually does the trick as no-one else has commented to this effect.

Luis said...

Sorry, but I've tried three times before sending the message. The file is corrupt in the last past affecting track 8.

Luis

bacoso said...

luis -then use the win rar repair facility.its built into the file.

Luis said...

Yes, of course I tried before but the message is: "unexpected end of archive". The repair tools are useful when a recovery record is built into the file, but this is not the case.

Don´t worry, thanks anyway.

bacoso said...

there is a recovery record built into the archive !!!

andy64 said...

I have the same problem - "Unexpected end of archive".

Thanks anyway.

petruccelli said...

same here . I've downloaded two times
but "Unexpected end of archive".
Repair Archive isn't possible. Track 8 is missing. A reup from track 8 would be fine. thanks

bacoso said...

Dunno what happened there but anyway given that track 8 is Fuego Y Palante one of my favourite Barretto tunes I'll up it later today on its own-watch this comments box.OK?

Thanks for all your hard work!

oui said...

bacoso: your Trax 8 & 9 rapidshare file doesnt work... is that album totally cursed?

Yair said...

Track 8 is BROKEN and track 9 does not exist in the RAR...
Recovery record can't do a thing.
I think Bacosó this happens because you include in the RAR your desktop.ini and that messes everything up.
Besides you deleted the link to busted tracks...
You gonna put them up?
Don´t leave us this way...
Thanks in advance.

oui said...

sure, a reply would be whatever but better than a seemingly endless silence :)
thanks for your future reply bacoso

bacoso said...

oui-
I am busy ripping other material to post-this one has been a real pain in the ass and is obviously cursed so the original link is now deleted and trax 8 & 9 will not be reupped.

andy64 said...

Try this:

Let's hope the curse has been lifted!

oui said...
