Various Artists - Hot Stuff 1 And 2 (1962-93 us, splendid latin psychedelic funk jazz rock)



Excellent compilation in two discs, released along with Pop and Rock magazine ( the most long-standing Greek monthly music magazine)  A melt of latin psychedelic and jazz rock featuring some valuable names like Gerald Wilson, Santana, Madrill among others.

From 1962's latin jazzy tune "Viva Tirado" and a 1966 version of "Evil Ways" to an early nineties live rendition of  "Black Magic Woman / Gypsy Queen" by Santana (although it looks to me like an '80's version, even if it's credited as 1993). Great digi pack covers in a vinyl feel  completes the package.


Disc 1
1. El Chicano - Viva Tirado - 4:53
2. Willie Bobo - Evil Ways - 2:40
3. Santana - Black Magic Woman / Gypsy Queen - 8:53
4. Mandrill - Mandrill - 4:20 


Disc 2
1. Gerald Wilson - Viva Tirado - 5:43
2. Harlem River Drive - Idle Hands - 2:40
3. Mandrill - Solid - 7:41
