Okay. Boogaloo is salsa's rather, uh, simple older cousin. It got a bad rap back in the day, before salsa swept it off the dancefloors, but even the great Celia Cruz recorded a few tracks of it. Combining crowd-friendly soul music and Cuban son, the sound appealed to African Americans and Latinos alike, and brought the two communities briefly closer together in the 1960s. And it remains insanely infectious. The omission of signature tunes like Pete Rodriguez's "I Like It Like That" is glaring, but as a collection of slightly off-the-beaten-track boogaloos, this Fania release rocks.
