Conjunto Nativo "Soy Nativo" (Top Hits) 1982 .... a Bach alike piano intro by Hector L. Velazquez, floating trumpets/coro, an enraptured tres feature by Jose J. Rivera and Gaby Santiago's lead vocals .... a heady brew indeed ....

Conjunto La Perla De Ponce "Conjunto La Perla De Ponce " (Nuestra Records) 1978 .... definitely one of the great but unsung Salsa LP`s from the late(r) 70`s .... wholeheartedly recommended ....

Who is on this one? Is it from NY?

I don't know of it.

Chino Y Su Conjunto Melao "Fruto Prohibido" (T.R. Tecords) 1975 .... the band delivers pure energy and  lead singer Ray De La Paz wails his way ...

Thanks for this one. I played with Ray De La Paz for a few years with his own band and with Louie Ramirez and I was not familiar with this one. It's killing.

This has been a fun thread to read. When I first moved back to New York, I cut my teeth on the thriving New York salsa scene in the early '90s and got to play with some of the best bands in New York, many of whom I see represented here. 

Here is one from Ray De La Paz from the time period when I played in the band.

If someone can teach me how to post link from you tube so you can play them here, I'd appreciate it. 

Thanks
