...Compiled By Musk...

~ Orquesta Oldies: En Español Vol. 2 ~

A Collection Of Oldies From Latin Salsa Orquestas

Many If Not All Salsa Orquestas Were Heavily Influenced By American Soul Music, I.E. Motown, Stax. And These Bands Wanted To Write Their Own Soul And Oldies To Record, But At The Time Salsa Was Becoming Very Popular In America And Record Execs Were Out To Sign Salsa Acts. These Bands Were Signed As A Salsa Orquesta, Not Soul Or Oldies. Execs Wanted Salsa, Many Artists Wanted To Record Oldies Along With Salsa. So The Acts Were Only Allowed Limited Songs That Were Not Salsa, You Can PIck Up Almost Any Salsa Album And Find One Or Two Slow Love Songs. We Might Have Heard A Lot More Latin Oldies If It Weren't For Record Execs Wanting To Push What Was Hot At The Moment, Instead Of Artists Recording Everything They Wanted, They Were Allowed To Release A Few Soul Tracks Per Album. Soul Music Was Huge In America And Record Execs Already Had Plenty Of Soul Acts, Now They Wanted To Reach Latinos In America, They Wanted To Jump On The Salsa Bandwagon, They Pushed Their Artists To Record Salsa Not Oldies, Thus Hindering True Artistic Freedom Of The Artists.

In These Compilations I'll be Releasing, You Will Hear Those Tracks. Latin Orquestas Writing American Soul Type Of Music About Love, Women And Heartbreak. Many Could Sing In English And Spanish. Volume 2 Is Also All In Spanish. Enjoy.

Bobby Boyd Congress - Self Titled 1971

A Funky French Delight, You Probably Never Heard Of. You'll Find Great Horns, Jazzy Bass Grooves And On Other Tracks You Will Find Soulful Stuff As Well. Highly Recommended


Bobby Bryant - The Jazz Excursion Into Hair

Master Trumpeter Bobby Bryant Brings The Funk On This One. A Jazz Excursion Into Hair, The Title Says All You Need To Know. Dope Bass, Horns And Flute Work On This Album. Very Nice Take On The Music From Hair
