A journey through the COTIQUE catalogue of the Boogaloo era featuring tracks never released on 45.

The COTIQUE label is seen by some as the little brother to Fania - with a roster of younger groups, many still in their teens, offering very street wise lyrics with cheeky references to drugs and clubs - along with a love of the afro-soul and jazz as much as the latin flavours. The chance to record long players gave them more freedom to stretch out the hypnotic rhythms, riffs, bass lines and breakdowns further than the usual sub three-minute 7" format allowed - with a nod towards the extended mix that was to become popular in the next decade in Hispanic nightclub across Nu Yorica.

This label, in that 1967-70 period, personified the melting pot of El Barrio, arguably more than any other - with the run of around 50 LPs all serving up the latin-soul sauce in generous portions
