Bang! Bang! & Push, Push, Push (Wanted Dead Or Alive)
The leading proponent of Latin Soul and Boogaloo, Joe Cuba, had a massive hit on his hands with the single "Bang Bang". This album is perhaps the best seller of the genre and took Joe into the spotlight. The entire album cooks with a blend of R & B fused Latin Soul, Boogaloo and Salsa influenced sounds. A true classic that can be easily be categorized as "a feel good" record that is capable of lifting spirits and moving feet to the beat. A must-have from a very innovative era when Spanish and English were used interchangeably in lyrics and non-Spanish speaking fans danced the night away to the Latin beat.
