The Soul Of Spanish Harlem

The Soul Of Spanish Harlem

This compilation focuses on the sort of Latin soul records made by Nuyoricans in a very small window in the late 60s, before it was blown away by the onslaught of the golden years of salsa.

Artist: Various Artists

Genre: Soul

Label: BGP

Release date:

I’m sitting have dinner with Bobby Marin – who has spent nearly 50 years in music, making scores of Latin records across every sort of style – and we’re talking about gigs. Bobby grew up on 107th Street Spanish Harlem and was a teen in the 50s. ‘Did you see James Brown?’ ‘I saw James Brown so often that it became boring…Jackie Wilson was something else’. Bobby was describing how music came into his life - how his brothers played mambo records and the radio was alive with the early sounds of rock’n’roll.
