    One of Ray Barretto 's hardest-hitting salsa albums of the 70s – a raw set of grooves that's got Ray moving away from the playfulness of the Latin Soul years, into a more righteous mode that's easily guessed at from the title of the set! The vibe here is very straightforward – with Ray coming down hard on conga, and working with a group that features Adalberto Santiago on lead vocals, plus.

    Following Acid, Barretto put together several more Latin soul themed albums including Hard Hands, the compilation Head Sounds (which was basically a few key cuts from Acid plus a handful of new songs including “Drum Poem” and a version of “Tin Tin Deo”, and Together.

    Ray Barretto Soul Drummers ~ Fania LP ‘From the Beginning’ ‘S oul Drummers’ first appeared in on an album called ‘Acid’. Mr Hard Hands is at the top of his form with a congo led blaster backed by Orestes Vilato’s sympathetic timbales on this mainly instrumental bugalu masterpiece.

    Orestes Vilato's timbales do a nice interplay with Barretto's congas. Nice and tasty "New York Soul" sound. Kudos to Mr. Soul (who is he?). He's the bassist for the session. As for sound quality, it could be better. Even the LP was not of the highest fidelity but it outshines the 90's cd reissue which is poorly mastered and lacks adequate liner.

    A vinyl LP can hold up to an hour of music on each side, so they are a popular format for albums. In longer albums the grooves have to be cut closer together which can affect sound quality. Many albums were made as double LPs to get around this.
