Pucho and His Latin Soul Brothers ‎– Saffron and Soul

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“As he did on his other ’66 session (Tough!), Pucho mixed pop and soul hits with the stronger stuff. That means the best and funkiest pieces-“Aye Ma Ma,” “Soul Yamie,” and a typically irreverent cover of “Caravan”-are mixed with the likes of “Reach Out I’ll Be There” and “Alfie.” The entire album has been added to the CD reissue of Tough!, so you should look for that disc instead of an original copy of the LP.” – Richie Unterberger/AllMusic.
