Song of the Day: Fania All Stars – “Quitate Tu”

If you like salsa like I do then this live clip filmed at New York’s Cheetah Lounge in August of 1971 is pure nirvana! It was taken from the movie “Our Latin Thing (Cosa Nostra)” and features the Fania All Stars. This group is a who’s who of New York salsa in the 60’s and 70’s. Some of the featured singers in this particular song include Hector Lavoe, Cheo Feliciano, and Pete “El Conde” Rodriguez and the band includes Ray Barreto, Larry Harlow and Willie Colon!
Try and sit still while watching this! Salsa!!!
