The sound of oThe two Venezuelan producers Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel keep digging their inspiration and interest in bringing back to live the spirit of the sounds of New York City in the late 60’s and 70’s from their own Charly’s perspective.

The release contain 10 songs including some brand new material plus some of the tracks that were previously released as singles on collectable 7" over the past two years, all 100% analogically re mastered for a deeper sound.
Fania, Salsoul, Joe Bataan, Cal Tjader, Willie Colon, Joe Cuba, Charlie Palmieri, Bobby Matos, etc, etc, etc, they are all clear influences and inspiration on the making of this musical journey that travels from the very early times of Latin Funk, Soul & Boogaloo, to the genre that was to unify the whole Hispanic America under one groove: Salsa, and beyond.

The old and the new school of heavy Salsa merges on the tune "Ten Cuidao" in a pure barrio styled groove directly from the heart of Seven Sisters. Imagine Charlie Palmieri & Willie Colon meets Joe Arroyo & Los Charly's Orchestra... for a new collaboration... while the super refreshing Cha Cha sound of “On the Other Side” fuses with the soul of lead vocalist Andre Espeut’s for the latest LCO’s Cha Cha-Soul experiment which sounds as if Roy Ayers was making Latin music.
There are also two new killer versions (Vocal & Instrumental) of the iconic track "Merecumbe" on a Latin Disco tip plus lots of other groovy stuff on the usual funky line of Los Charly’s.
