Fuego de Amor — B-Sides of 1970's Salsa Dura 45s


Downtempo Latin Soul in the Mix – Strictly Vinyl

Lately I’ve had a lot of fun browsing through my 1970s 7-inch Salsa Dura records for new „Salsa Classics“ mixes. My attention was drawn to the many boleros and downtempo tracks on the B-sides. This mix is in a way the other side of the phenomenal NYC Salsa explosion. Enjoy 17 downtempo latin gems from the most prominent salsa ensembles and most outstanding singers.

Everything is voice in the spotlight, in which the refinement of the arrangement creates space for the expression of the singing. This opens up perspectives on the ground plan and spirit of Afro-Caribbean percussion. And so we follow the dialogue of singer and soloist, of piano and bass and within the percussion. And never does it make us stand out completely. And never fall deeper than deep. It always remains a dance. A breathing, step by step.

Not all tracks are pure boleros, some transform into son, one track starts as a guajira that turns into a cha-cha-cha. And not all tracks are B-sides. After all six Latin downtempo gems are self-confident A-sides.

Enjoy the voices of Azuquita, Eladio Jimenez, Pablo LeBron, Ismael Miranda, Carlos Santos, Adalberto Santiago, Justo Betancourt, Chamaco Rivera, Junior Santiago, Celia Cruz, Cheo Feleciano, Baby Gonzalez y Myrna Lamb, Carlos Montiel, Pellin Rodriguez, Victor Velazquez.
