If you bought THE EXCEPTIONALLY OUTSTANDING Vol.1 of Fania All Stars Live At The Red Garter, and you said: "Great!" Let's now find out about Vol.2"! 'You'll fall from a Coconut tree'! (Like we say at home!...) You won't believe the disappointment! Why? Because the original Fania owners of the era decided to include ALL that boogaloo & Shing-A-Ling 'Anglo-American' junk "Latin" sort of music that was the fashion of the era!...


The only 2 good songs from this album are the 1st two.
The 8:30 mins Son Cuero y Boogaloo from Ray Barretto which is actually not that Anglo-American and does sound pretty good (although there's by far a better version of it in Barretto's second Fania Album Hard Hands (also from 1968) which is definitely shorter, but better quality) and the second song from Larry Harlow: Noche (7:07 mins) which is quite exceptional, I think! (I've heard clips from it, as it's the only song that doesn't work on the faniarecords website! (They had to screw it with THE best song from the album!...)
Then you get the 'Okayish' Charlie Palmieri Kikapoo Joy Juice song which eventually gets better after the English vocals from the song finish...
You also get Charlie soloing on Piano!...

Then, the rest, is BELOW average!... Don't bother... (Get it of a friend and record on CD, 2, or MAXIMUM 3 songs.)

Sound quality: I haven't bothered to get the chance to hear the songs from this Cd, but from what I think, it's above average, if not, pretty good, so there, it's not an issue AT ALL. The sound quality is good enough, I THINK...

If the first volume was truly something special then the second volume can only be described as a real disappointment. The only tunes that would make buying this CD worthwhile are "Noche", "Son, Cuero Y Boogaloo" and (my personal favorite) "Kikapoo Joy Juice" (which was written by the legendary Charlie Palmieri and the tune on which Charlie himself is featured on Piano as a special invited guest star). The rest of the album is quite disappointing and sounds very dated because of the Latin Soul, Boogaloo and Shing-A-Ling numbers which round it out. Based on the musical content, this album does deserve a 2-star rating but I ended up giving it a 3-star rating because the 2006-issued Emusica remastered edition's sound quality is truly excellent (especially when considering that this was recorded and originally issued in 1968!). Unless you are a Fania All Stars completist, I would recommend avoiding this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misguided Reviewers June 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
At the time, Salsa as a term has not come into a marketing and commercial push. The music on this album represents the New York Sound at that time, a combination of R&B Soul, Afro-Cuban, Puerto Rico and Afro-Antillean music. Fania Records was an emerging recording company- number 3 or 4 in the marketplace as well as the roster of talent. Many of the artists were recording with other companies as Eddie and Charlie Palmieri, Tito Puente, Richie Ray and Jimmy Sabater. Among the youth of that era, the music of Machito, Tito Rodriguez and Tito Puente reflected an older and dated form of music. Boogaloo and Latin Soul was able not to matured and developed because it was short-circuited and denied an opportunity to bring this new hybird sound forward. This recording is a snapshot of the sound of New York City. The influence of the New York Afro-Latinos was/is the underpinnings of The Golden Age. You cannot hear the later recordings of the 70's without hearing the roots of the music in the 60's. This is the distinctive and edgy New York Sound. This is a crucial missing component of Latin music today. This is one of the reasons why Latin dance music is very mediocre. Fania does not and did not represent the entirety of Latin Music during this era. Afterwards, Fania did purchase many of the independent record labels and music catalog such as Tico, Allegre, Cotique and Inca.
