Notes

In the last years Latin Music, new and old, has started to move back into the popular consciousness and onto hip dance floors.
This album brings together eleven much sought after dance-floor fillers from the TICO and FANIA labels; they could all be loosely described as Latin Soul.
Latin Soul was a movement that started in 1962 but flourished between 1966 and 1969.
Although the roots of this music lay in Puerto Rico and Cuba, it finally burst out of New York; a noisy brash expression of teenage experience.
A genuine mix of of traditional Latin Rhythms and Black Soul and R'n'B resulted in a powerful dance beat, breaking many of the rules of Latin orthodoxy.
