Enrique Olivarez Y Sus Vampiros - Communicate

  • Sale
  • Regular price £6.99

Killer rare Latin funk grooves! Enrique Olivarez åÐ along with his Vampiros åÐ crossed the border from Mexico to the USA in the mid '60s and settled in the sleepy town of Stockton, California. Gigging around town, they recorded an LP and a 45 before disappearing completely. While the LP was mainly Mexican Corrido music, the 45 (Al's Place) is an ace of hard hot and heavy funk åÐ recorded as an ode to the local club where they had a residency, and no doubt the soundtrack to many a debauched night on the tequila. 'Communicate' is from the LP and runs more into a funky Latin soul instrumental, a true party starter! Both the 45 and the LP were private pressings with no distribution to speak of and are proper super rare
