This was a great little sidewalk find. I didn't know anything about it, and there's not a lot of info on it online, but it passed the smell test and was well worth the $2. After a little poking around, come to find out our man Jimmy Sabater was one of the group of musicians that helped to bring latin music to light in the US, and has been called the 'father of salsa' by some. What we have here is a disco version of a song he originally did with Joe Cuba back in 1957. The vocals are kinda whatever, but god damn if this shit isn't hot.
