Singer/pianist Bataan was one of the shooting stars of Latin-soul, that moment when the bugal£ and the jala jala made it look as though a bilingual, Afro-Latin New Yorican sound might be here to stay. The title cut was one of the hits of the time, but this 1969 release attested that there was more to Bataan than one hit even though he never really got the chance to prove it. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
