Alfredo Linares Y Su Sonora - Vol. 1: The MAG Years
Rocafort Records - ROC039
After the tremendous success of the first two boxsets of Nuyorican goodies, Rocafort Records heads to Peru for our next instalment of Salsa & Boogaloo treats!
We have compiled six of the finest songs from Alfredito Linares' first two albums, both recorded for Manuel Guerrero's label 'MAG'. 'El Pito Y Otros Exitos' was released in 1968, followed by 'Yo Traigo Boogaloo' in 1969. Both albums are highly sought after and prized by collectors, DJs and music lovers. Not only do they showcase Linares' talents as a pianist, composer, and arranger, but they perfectly capture the infectious rhythms of the era 'con tremendo swing'.
Including liner notes by DJ Timber.
