    Hi Tom...

    Could be a regular thing, depends how things go on Sunday I suppose...

    Have fun at Revolution, remember my Djing philosophy... "never do anything they'll understand"

    Unfortunately no can do. I'm DJing at an open decks competition at Revolution on the 7th - figured I'd try and teach all the "..Erick Morillo-style funky house.." DJs a thing or two!

    Good pub the Tanners. Is this a one off or regular thing?

    It's that S word again Sermad...

    How consistent is the Fania label?  Is it largely boogaloo or does it cast its net wider?
    The main Fania golden era for the funky-boogaloo (bugalu)-latin-soul-whatever you call it, music was probably 66-70.  Most of the albums would have at least a couple of boogaloo tracks - easy to spot as they're usually the only ones with titles in English! - along with a couple of trad latin numbers and a hot latin-jazz jam session style cut ("descarga&quot

    The 45s ?- again,many of the "soul" type cuts were issued in this format.  Going rates will depend on the individual track - from £10 or less - up to a three figures for one or two bits (eg Use It Before...). Fryer may have a few 45s left...

    NB: Loads of the good Fania LPs have been re-ished - a few on ebay at the mo'...it's just when you go for the OG 60s Gold labels that things can get costly...

    Also check for the Cotique and Speed labels and loads of little NY based ones.  

    After about 1970 most of the artists and labels went down the salsa path - so be careful!


    ..and Serms - cheers for the comments - I'll dub you a Boogaloo CD comp then - Are you at the Salmon on Thurs ?   Anybody else there?

    hey guys theres some recent comps called 'latin dance party'. I think a series of 3 volumes. From memory :

    Latin Dance Party
    Latin Dance Party vol 2 60s boogaloo
    Latin Dance Party vol 3 70s latin funk

    All are well well well worth the money and easy to find. I', at work now but if any of you want further details let me know. The 70s funk one rocks.

    Welcome to the board btw!
    Cheers Sermad. I'm from the lovely city of Newcastle.
    A couple of other nice comps are Broasted or Fried (which features Bobby Valentin - 'Use it before you lose it' and a load of other brilliant tracks) and Freak Off (which has Willie Bobo - 'Psychedelic Blues' and Pete Rodriguez-'Oh thats nice' )
    I've picked up reissues of Mongo Santamaria-Mongo '70 and some stuff like that but the sound quality of these reissues tends to be a bit lame.

    Actually Ive been picking up vampi soul reissues for a while now. Their peruvian underground comp is utterly essential.

    Thanks for the pointers to the comps fellas.

    BGP reissued 'Heat' and 'Jungle Fire' on vinyl about ten years ago.
    there are four of five boogaloo compilations on Harmless, all worth checking. Also one on Soul Jazz, 'NuYorican Roots', and an old one on Charly called 'We Got Latin Soul' is definitely worth picking up if you see it. And apparently there's a reissue about of 'El Exigente' by Orchestra Harlow, which is one of the best boogaloo albums (and originals are pricey). The Spanish label Vampisoul have done some great reissues as well - Ray Barretto 'Acid' and Monguito Santamaria 'Hey Sister' are both gems...

    Another thought - Harmless or Strutt did a great Boogaloo comp a couple of years ago. It was called "Kool...." something or other - sorry to be vague but it should be easy to find.
