Gettin' Soulful - A Swingin' Combination Of Vampisoul Records Smash Hits

During the sixties, the traffic in both directions between Spanish Harlem and the other mythic Harlem, that of rhytym and blues, was intense. There wasn't a soulman or jazz funkateer who didn't have a conga player in their lineup. During this time, an exciting New York version of a danceable soul surfaced, represented by Latin record company, "Vampisoul". In spite of the "Latin" adjective, this is a type of afro-cuban jazz is genuinely open to psycadelic, bugaloo, and soul influences. A must-have, super-rare collection!
