ray barretto - acid

Sure, I loved that English Invasion stuff, but even in the Sixties my listening wasn't lily white.  James Brown; Stax-Volt-Enterprise; WWRL (The Weekend Spooktacular!); even a little Jimmy Smith and Wes Montgomery.  In the Seventies I branched out a little bit further, and broke a linguistic barrier. 

These Newyorican cats were so out there, I mean it was shocking.  Nobody has as much fun as them, nobody partied like them.  If you could get yourself into this club you were into the zone of the really, really happening. 

This is a great album by the way, all the way through.  Stretch out!
