Louie Ramírez : Salsa Vibes

Take the first track 'James Brown Ride On' as a tribute to Bobby Byrd. Nigerian are proud of the J.B.'s and People. Label Soundway is still digging African Rhythm influenced by American soul and r&b. Second release this year by Soundway is coming soon. Some people such as Matsuli, this forum and Sea Never Dry get very early the info. These new release is like the Afro Baby - Evolution of the Afro-Sound in Nigeria volume 2 : Nigeria Special: Modern Highlife, Afro-Sounds and Nigerian Blues 1970-76. In the idea of the Ghana Sounds series. Damn ! my friend Ness get already a copy. By waiting this, I suggere the track 'Hong Kong' from Colombia and a covered version called 'Salsa Vibes' by Louie Ramirez, most known for his work on Fania Records.
