BIO RITMO-Dina's Mambo/La Muralla (Electric Cowbell, 2010)
Now you all know I'm not into salsa at all, but I can appreciate the old school Fania style of salsa dura infused with groovy funk and soul and there's no better way to enjoy that type of music than in vinyl records. So when I saw this 7'' recently released by Electric Cowbell, one of my favorite new record labels that exclusively releases music in this format, I had to buy it right away, even though already had the tracks on MP3.
There's one instrumental funk track and one straight-up salsa dura on the other side and it comes with some long-ass liner notes and the art (which I'm not too crazy about, but it's definitely better than that one by label-mates Spanglish Fly) was done by the band's singer.
Buy it here.
