Pete Rodriguez - El Rey Del Boogaloo - Vampi Soul LP/CD



available as LP/CD



Presenting The King Of Boogaloo

theres one only word to describe this album: boogaloo. Pete Rodriguez and his band certainly were one of the best combos of the golden Latin Soul era, and this compilation certainly gets the strongests numbers. hard funk and fastbeats all the way through. a fantastic album of Latin Soul – the proof of why Pete was known as the "King Of The Boogaloo" during the 60s!. every song sounds like if the group's having a non-stop party with very edgy and inspired playing with heavy piano lines, storming bass berhind the grooves, swinging timbales, and some shouted and catchy lyrics mostly in english.

Barry White - Boss Soul: The Genius Of Barry White - Vampi Soul LP/CD



available as LP/CD



16 Tracks Featuring The Super Rare Bronco And Mustang Soul Singles

this disc compiles an underexposed chapter in the history of bedroom Soul auteur Barry White: between mid-1966 and 1967, he headed up a Motown-wannabe division of Bob Keane's Del-Fi Records called Bronco. the compilation contains nearly everything released on Bronco, lacking only a couple of B-sides; its music is clearly ersatz Motown built around the vocal talents of singers Viola Wills, Felice Taylor, and Johnny Wyatt, especially derivative of the tunes produced by the partnership of Holland-Dozier-Holland with the Supremes. the real value in this album is in illuminating the process that led to White creating his mid-70's masterpieces. the recordings on Boss Soul hint at the later sound in their Motown cops: the insistent danceable drums, the melodic bass lines, the strings coupled with funky guitar riffs would all become elements of his inimitable style. Highly recommended for Motown freaks and anyone already familiar with Barry's later work.
