Liner Notes
IN THIS TROUBLED WORLD THAT WE ARE LIVING IN TODAY IT HAS BECOME INVARIABLY EVIDENT THAT THE MEDIA OF MUSIC IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS IN THE CULTURAL EXCHANGE AMONG NATIONS. OF COURSE, THIS DOES NOT IMPLY THAT MUSIC OF DIFFERENT CULTURAL BACKGROUNDS HAS NOT PREVIOUSLY EXCHANGED HANDS. TODAY HOWEVER, MUSIC HAS GAINED A NEW INGREDIENT. THIS NEW INGREDIENT HAS BECOME A BINDING FORCE OF YOUTH AND MUSIC THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. IT IS AN EXPRESSION OF EITHER ONE PERSON, OR PERSONS INNER MOST FEELINGS VIA THE MEDIA OF MUSIC. THIS INGREDIENT, AS YOU MUST HAVE GATHERED BY NOW, IS CALLED "SOUL". JUST A SHORT WHILE BACK "SOUL" INVADED THE LATIN FIELD AND BECAME AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS. SINCE THE INVASION OF "SOUL" LATIN MUSIC HAS BEEN DEMANDED MORE THAN EVER BEFORE IN THE AMERICAN MARKET. IN A SENSE IT IS DIFFICULT TO INDICATE THE TYPE OF "SOUL" WHICH IS EXPRESSED, SO BEAUTIFULLY, BY JOE BATAAN. IT IS A HYPNOTIZING, YET A SWINGING AND VIBRANT SOUND. VARIOUS WELL KNOWN BAND LEADERS HAVE PREDICTED THAT BATAAN AND HIS MUSICIANS HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE BEFORE THEM. THIS IS INDICATIVE OF THEIR NATURAL ABILITY TO CHANGE THEIR MUSICAL MOODS AND YET MAINTAIN AN INDIVIDUALISTIC QUALITY ALL THEIR OWN, WHICH IS NEEDED TO SATISFY THE MUSICAL TASTE OF PEOPLE ALL OVER. THIS ALBUM COULD NOT HAVE BEEN SO WELL RECORDED, HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR THE PATIENCE AND TALENTS OF JOHNNY PACHECO AND THE ENGINEERING OF IRVING GREENBAUM AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST JERRY MASUCCI, PRESIDENT OF FANIA RECORDS.
