Editor's info:
TA fusion of Cuban salsa and American soul, boogaloo was the brightly burning dance craze fixating every young dancer in New York's barrios in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Boogaloo was born out of the creativity of the 1960s generation of USA-born Latinos, who musically grafted American culture on to their Latin roots, leading many established Latin bandleaders to adopt the dance to irresistible results. The Rough Guide To Boogaloo is packed full of classic boogaloo firecrackers from Tito Puente, Charlie Palmieri, Ray Barretto, Joe Cuba and others.
Billboard (USA), March 19 on The Rough Guide To Boogaloo
'There's something inherently corny about a boogaloo album. But that same element, combined with the rich sound of big bands and an irresistible swing, makes this compilation a delight. Spanning the two decades of New York-based dance music that gained international attention in the 1960s and 1970s, this "Rough Guide" goes from the classic sound of Pete Rodriguez y su Conjunto to the inventiveness of a forward-looking Charlie Palmieri ("Boogaloo Mania") and the more contemporary salsa sound of the Fania All Stars. There are also little-known gems: Willie Colón's "Willie Whopper," sung in English to a rock'n'roll/boogaloo beat, is priceless. A collector's item.'
