Here it is, the record that first opened me up to the Nuyorican sound of the late sixties, the TNT Boys doing a thing called “Musica del Alma”, or Soul Music. What could this blog be without putting up this classic to start things off?!
A two-tone Archie Bell “Tighten Up”-style guitar riff lays the backbone for this Latin Soul gem, no doubt playing off of the regional success of the TNT Band’s “Meditation”. Don’t ask me which song I like better, but I will tell there are few songs out there that put me in a better mood.
I’m also including another song from the album, “Caliente,” an oft slept-on dancefloor killah.
