Eddie Palmieri – Harlem River Drive

A legendary Latin funk album -- spearheaded by Eddie Palmieri! The record is a landmark crossover album from the early 70s -- cut at the end of the Latin soul era, but featuring that genre's wonderful mix of Puerto Rican soul, Spanish Harlem Latin, and New York funk. The grooves are all nice and long -- with plenty of hard jamming, and soulful lyrics in English that have a very positive message. All tracks are great -- and titles include "Seeds Of Life", "Harlem River Drive", and "Idle Hands". Eddie Palmieri plays piano, and the group grooves hard with a killer Latin funk sound!

1. Harlem River Drive (Theme Song)
2. If (We Had Peace Today)
3. Idle Hands
4. Broken Home
5. Seeds of Life
