I was a dj when this arrived at the radio station. I had never heard of JC, and was just getting to know the boogaloo scene makers in NYC. This one took off like a rocket on July 4th with unique barrio sound. For years I thought that Johnny was the singer too, but hey, I was wrong! The great schuffling voice belongs to Tito Ramos. Remember Judy Part II? Who's ever going to forget choruses like "LSD has a hold on me" followed later in the same song by "one two three, I feel so free"? They are all in here! Man! What a record! What a time!

Some behind the scenes info, the vinyl original was on the Cotique label, which was run by George Goldner, a conteporary of Morris Levy, who owned the Tico and Roulette labels in New York City. Goldner was very active during the 196o's boogaloo era. Goldner sold his Cotique label to Levy, so all of those records eventually passed to Levy, who years later sold to Fania.

Now they are out again in CD released in fair packages. But what's with all of the anti-piracy warnings on the CDs? Do they think that their buyers are crooks?

The boogaloo was short lived, to be replaced by the hard core salseros, like Willie Colon and others. Many of the boogaloo bands went on and started to play salsa. But still, boogaloo was a big part of growing up for many, and we still love it. This was one of those albums. Thanks Johnny!

This is a classic album and required of any serious Latin Jazz collector. It sounds just as good today as it did in 1967! The versions of "Boogaloo Blues" and "Mira Ven Aca" alone are worth the price of admission. I would recommend it...
