Ghetto Brothers – Got This Happy Feeling

blame it on JES7 January 29, 2013

Truth and Soul Records, home to funk / soul revivalist bands like Lee Fields & The Expressions, El Michels Affair and The Olympians have recently re-released the Ghetto Brothers’ 1971 LP Power Fuerza. The original pressing, which is pretty rare and expensive, was released on Salsa Records. For those who are unfamiliar, they were originally a gang that used to run the streets and barrios of the South Bronx in the 70s, with close association to the Puerto Rican Socialist Party. If you enjoy this slice of Latin Funk or simply enjoy finding rare groove, pick up the reissue here. Also, hit the jump for a short documentary on Benjy Melendez, founder of the Ghetto Brothers.
