Album info

A fantastic mix of funky bass, heavy drums, burning horn lines and soulful vocals, this Latin-soul group was the exciting result of the Harlem Youth Act of 1964. Led by master conga player Montego Joe, this ranks as one of the great Latin releases of all-time and has become a highly-sought after classic amongst DJs, dance enthusiasts, and record collectors. Digitally remastered in digipak format, Songs from the Ghetto Youth with the monster tracks "Welcome to the Party," "Feed Me Good," and "Oua-Train". As a bonus, there is a track where leader Montego Joe reminisces about the HAR YOU project.
“Quite simply one of the wildest Afro-Latin club bangers you will ever hear!” –
"The rhythmic sense is incredibly mature, the drumming stellar, and the grooves are consistently in the pocket. A must-hear". - Sarah Bardeen
