With summer in full swing here’s a mouth-watering taste of super latin soul! With the ingredients ranging from spicy hot funk to cool refreshing salsa, Ricardo Marrero’s ‘A Taste’ sets the scene for an exciting summer awash with soulful latin rhythms over a tropical breeze… an album of wonderful music – an album that very nearly never happened!
The story of this album begins in New York during the mid-’70s. It’s a story of stolen master tapes, shady deals and records deliberately made NOT to be sold. It’s the story of the musical obsession of one man who has devoted his life to music and how he was sold down the river by unscrupulous record industry moguls. It’s also the story of one of the rarest, most in demand and expensive records the world has ever known, with only a handful of copies of this super LP ever being found. Demand for the solid music within has led to a bidding frenzy whenever a copy has surfaced – the latest one has fetched over $4000!
Superb high quality Japanese release with OBI and remastered to sound awesome!
