Saoco!, Vol. 1
"Saoco", one of Vampisouls most celebrated, and long-time unavailable, compilations is back in stock with new remastered sound, different colour variation in the artwork and 2LP package format. This reissue is coproduced with Puerto Rican label Ojo de Tigre. A comprehensive look at the fascinating music variety of Puerto Rico during the 50s and 60s, which would lead the way to the subsequent salsa scene worldwide. The selection focuses on the rhythms of bomba and plena, island traditions that reached tremendous popularity and enriched the field of tropical music with a clearly Puerto Rican character. Extensive liner notes by compiler Yannis Ruel illustrated with original artwork and memorabilia.
