Description
"In 1967, Puerto Rican bandleader and timbalero Francisco "Kako" Bastar was approached with a proposition to record a Latin boogaloo album. The man extending the offer was Al Santiago, former founder of Alegre Records where Kako was one of the Alegre All-Stars. By this point, Santiago was now working with Art Talmadge's Musicor Records, principally a rock and country label (think Gene Pitney and George Jones), but they also nurtured a budding Latin series that included such boogaloo-laced projects as La Playa Sextet's The Sound of Puerto Rico and Willie Rosario's Two Too Much."--http://www.fania.com/content/live-it
