Coming soon: Let’s Do The Boogaloo CD and vinyl (Ace)

You can always rely on an Ace Records compilation to deliver the goods, so the Let’s Do The Boogaloo CD and vinyl should be well worth picking up.

Described by the label as ‘the joyous place where young black and Latin youths met and made sweet music’ from the period 1965 through to 1968 and popular on dance floors ever since – including those of a mod persuasion.

Extensive sleeve notes explain the story of the dance and how the music adapted to it, explaining what connects Chubby Checker, Charlie Palmieri, Mongo Santamaria and Jimmy Castor, all of whom appear on the album alongside the likes of Hector Rivera, Roy Lee Johnson and many more.

Ace pitch this as ‘the definitive compilation from the genre’, which sounds reason enough to own it. Check out the track listings for both versions below, with both available to pre-order now ahead of the 26th October release date.
