Ray Barretto - El Watusi 7" 45 DJ K-Tel
1963? Newyorican music on Top 40 radio? Believe it! Every now and again something strange showed up and crossed all cultural lines. "The Isrealittes," by Desmond Dekker and the Aces; "Sukiaki," (sic) by that Japanese fellow.
Ray Barretto had quite the little career in New York, he was one of the giants of "La Musica." His album "Acid" in the early '70's was a real milestone. Check him out!
