The boogaloo is an infectious and little-defined dance
that dominated American dance records in the mid-60s.
It was the joyous place where young black and latin
youths met and made sweet music. All previous
Boogaloo compilations have focused on the latin
aspect, "Let's Do The Boogaloo" looks at how the
music crossed over between the two.
The boogaloo craze started in Chicago with a record by
Tom & Jerryo, but it proved to have an enduring legacy
with its hit-making potential running from 1965 through
to 1968 - much longer than any other comparable
dance. Our earliest records - The infectious 'Ready
Steady Go' by Prince & Princess, produced by Rolling
Stones producer Jimmy Miller - kicks us off with a
frenetic beat and some latin horns. It is the perfect
boogaloo crossover.
Elsewhere we feature big sounds from both the soul
and latin side of the music. Club classics by the likes of
Hector Rivera and Roy Lee Johnson, and obscurities by
The PS 54 School Yard and Shirley Butler. The musical
aspects of this compilation hail from as far apart as
Texas and Detroit and Philadelphia and LA, where we
found the previously unreleased Bob & Earl Band
The extensive sleeve notes explain the story of the
dance and how the music adapted to it. Bringing
together the many strands and explaining what
connects Chubby Checker, Charlie Palmieri, Mongo
Santamaria and Jimmy Castor. This is musical and
dancefloor dynamite that brought together
communities, and "Let's Do The Boogaloo" is the
definitive compilation from the genre.
