El Gran Pacheco – Cañonazo
Fania 1972

Until now we saw two great latinlabels at Global Groove.
the Colombian label, “discos Fuentes’ and New York label ‘SAR’.
It’s about time to post some latin of the great ‘Fania’, a New
York label that started early 70’s, correct me if I’m wrong.
One of Fania’s biggest stars through the years is without any
doubt, ‘Johnny Pacheco’. I quote the backcover of this LP;
Sound, rhythm, and change…..three words that seem to go
well with Johnny Pacheco. The sound was Charanga, the
rhythm was Pachanga,and the change was welcomed by
dancers around the world; but this is a restless world of
innovations, and the most restless of all is JOHNNY !
Change the sound, change the rhythm, charge the air with
musical energy……the flute become drums, the violins
become trumpets, blend in voices, and the metamorphosis
is complete. Fania Records is proud to launch this new
sound which is being presented to you,
the listener, by Johnny Pacheco.

    Nice post. This was Fania’s 1st ever release way back in 1964 and it’s a knockout. Dakar, Punto Final blows me away. I love (and appreciate) the head nod to africa on the track. Thanks again.
