Jungle Fever: Expanded Edition - Chakachas

Jungle Fever: Expanded Edition
•    Belgian based Latin-soul group THE CHAKACHAS were formed in the 1950s by a group of Latin Soul studio musicians and included the famous Tito Puente’s wife, Kari Kenton on vocals and maracas.

•    CHAKACHAS were no strangers to hits with Eso es el amor, sung in Spanish, hitting #1 on the Belgian charts in 1958 and they got their first taste of UK pop chart action with Twist Twist reaching #48 in 1962.

•    In 1972 CHAKACHAS released their 6th studio album JUNGLE FEVER on Polydor records with the single of the same name becoming a huge success. JUNGLE FEVER climbed all the way to #8 on the US Hot 100 chart and by March of 1972 became certified Gold in the US after selling over one million copies and went on to peak at #29 in the UK where it caused such a stir within the BBC with the heavy breathing and moaning featured in the song that the BBC pulled it from airplay shortly after release.

•    To this day JUNGLE FEVER continues to bring CHAKACHAS notoriety having featured in the movie Boogie Nights and being sampled by numerous artists such as 2 Live Crew, Beatnuts, Public Enemy and Louie Vega as well as being featured on the smash hit Grand Theft Auto computer game franchise.

•    BBR is incredibly excited to present this fully expanded and lovingly re-mastered edition of CHAKACHAS – JUNGLE FEVER. Complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Latin, Soul, Disco Funk and R&B fans out there!

Salsoul (Expanded Edition)
Joe Bataan was born and grew up in Spanish Harlem, New York, in the 103rd St and Lexington Avenue area of the city. It is argued that no recording artist has more genuine street cred than Joe Bataan, the originator of the New York Latin Soul style that paralleled Latin Boogaloo and anticipated disco, he decided to focus his considerable talents full time on his music in 1965 after being released from a short jail sentence as a youth. His musical experience had begun with street corner doo wop in the 1950s, and progressed through the years to include one of the first rap records to hit the charts, 1979's "Rap-O, Clap-O." In between these milestones, he recorded classic albums like Riot! And Saint Latin's Day Massacre on the Fania label, and Afrofilipino, which included one of the first New York disco hits, an instrumental version of Gil Scott-Heron's "The Bottle."

SALSOUL, which gave the record label its name, (Bataan co-founded the label with the Cayre brothers but soon relinquished his stake) and helped ignite the explosion of urban dance music was released on the Mericana label in 1973 to wide critical acclaim. SALSOUL is still as influential as ever and a cult rare groove album, as it was a prophetic statement at the time of its release. This album exemplifies Bataan’s visionary and culturally aware musical concept of Latin Soul fused with orchestral funk. 

SALSOUL is drenched with infectious rhythms, passionate soul and Bataan’s gritty lyrics. Opener "Mi Nube” (My Cloud) sets the tone with propulsive rhythms, driving horns and great vocal phrasing and delivery. "Muchachu Ordinario” (Ordinary Guy) is a super smooth soulful strut which Bataan identified with strongly as he proclaimed himself to be just that, an ordinary guy from the streets. "Fin,” "Latin Strut” and "Aftershower Funk” are all uplifting instrumental workouts giving focus to deftly played chopping and/or wah-wah guitar and soaring flutes and horns amongst the rich assortment of Afro/Latin percussive grooves. 

This newly remastered, expanded edition is an essential listen for all true music fans and comes packaged complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content making this BBR re-master of SALSOUL a must have for all R&B, Funk, Soul, Latin, Afro/Cuban, Disco, and  Salsoul fans out there!
