Latin soul tunes like Tommy Navarro


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi after just listening to my Tommy Navarro 'I cried my life Away' , it got me wondering as to what other similar Latin soul tunes similar to this we have on the scene.

Thanks

Everyone's also forgotten David & Rubin/The Majestics - probably the biggest latin spin of them all. Dx

He's not the only one,😵 I do remember he's a massive stranglers fan though. Atb Dave.

Along with the gems above;The Rubies-Spanish Boy, Mongo Santamaria- We Got Latin Soul, El Pussycat ,  The Checkmates-Mastered The Art Of Love and many more Latin and Latinesque delights that I'm trying to think of!

There are plenty of great Latin tunes out there but not many that are similar to Mr Navarro, this comes as close as they come I guess.

Some great Latin influence soul records all good the ones posted, I suppose Ben E King with the Drifters and solo  circa 1960 -63 is a great example of this Genre all his stuff did it for me, A few British stars dipped their toes in this style early sixties Jimmy Justice etc and they turned out well produced sounds,

The TNT Band : "That's  life".

The Fashions  "Why don't you stay a little longer".

And one that's a little more contemporary :

Thee Lake siders, "Parachute".

Same label as Tommy Navarro but a lot lot cheaper. Kenny Hamber - Show Me Your Monkey. Great title Oo-er Missus. Great Double sider i've given the odd spin out, both sides.

always loved 'The Wanderers - You Can't Run Away from Me' great mid tempo track 🙂

You should also check out the Spanish  version / lyrics of Timi Yuro - It'll Never be Over For Me, I have a MP3 if you want one,  !Música hecha en el cielo!

Tony Middleton - Spanish Maiden, and Tito Puente is great, if you want to shout somebody over, like 'Oy' or even 'Oi' in English, you say Oye Como Va, (Oi Hows it Going)... obviously I'm leaning Spanish...

This one is a Leftfield one, aren't they all from me...    Might not have bugger all to do with Spanish, but Ive been looking for a reason to post, cause it's just a great version of Golden Brown and Count Five, kinda Mashed together... brand new and costs under a tenner...

Couple I always enjoy:

Chollo Rivera and the Latin Soul Drivers - Black and Blues - Cotique

Jobell and the Orchestra de Salsa - Never gonna let you go - Jan

The Chollo Rivera track also has a superb crossover flip - I could never hurt you girl.
