Posted by The Bay Area Crew, January 6, 2010 03:21pm | Post a Comment
Vinnie Esparza works in reggae & jazz for our SF store. For the most part, his interest in music stops at 1983.

1. V/A - African Boogaloo - Honest Jons
The best 70s African Latin comp I have ever heard. Stellar.

2. V/A - Panama! 2 - SoundWay
Outstanding collection of cumbia, funk and even calypso from Panama's golden years.

Panama! 2


3. Edan - Echo Party - Five Day Weekend
Edan outdoes himself with this continuous mix of original party rocking beats. Killer.

4. Junior Murvin - Police & Thieves (expanded edition) - Island UK
One of reggae's greatest albums gets the deluxe treatment with a second disc of rare bonus material.

5. V/A - Light: On the South Side - Numero Group
Phenomenal compilation of rare, mostly funky blues 45s from 1970s Chicago. Comes packaged with an amazing photograph book that places you right back on the scene. Vinyl only.
