Flash & The Dynamics-The New York Sound

Label: Craft Recordings
Format: Purple LP (180g)

Beginning in the mid-'60s, musicians were filling the clubs with an irresistible combination of soul, R&B, and Afro-Cuban dance rhythms. By the turn of the decade, the style – known as “boogaloo” – had evolved, often integrating socially-conscious lyricism (in both English and Spanish), rock and funk influences, and a heavy dose of psychedelia. That sound is captured in Flash & The Dynamics' The New York Sound, a 1971 rarity from the Fania Records vaults. The album, which marks the band's sole title, blends traditional Latin melodies with distorted guitars, soulful psychedelia, and funky rhythms. Listeners will be transported to another era with jams like “Everybody's Got Soul,” “Guajira Sicodélica,” and the trippy instrumental, “Electric Latin Soul.” Returning to vinyl for the first time in decades, The New York Sound features all-analog mastering by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Housed in a tip-on jacket and pressed on 180-gram Purple vinyl at RTI for an optimal listening experience.
