Doing The Spanish Hustle

I was browsing through some of my records the other day and I came across The Fatback Band's 1975 latin-flavored disco classic "Spanish Hustle". I hadn't listen to this track for sometime, however it was a nice 'refresher' as to how instrumentally sound the track is, breaking out all the chops with some amazing 'latin-boogie funk'. This song definitely makes me wish I could experience one of the many legendary underground New York Latin disco clubs from back in the day. Shoot The Pump!

Yes, Fatback was really innovative. In fact, they were one of the first that put a rap on vinyl ('King Tim III'). I also like their 'Let the drums speak'.

Yes! Picked up this 7" last summer. Glad to have it on my laptop now too.
