This unique candid documentary has Mr. Joe Bataan himself telling all first hand on his life and musical story. It is the first time he's done this and it feels like an honor. You listen to his golden voice while he shows you his city, and describes his life: From the early 50's as a teenage rumbler all the way through his acclaimed twenty-first-century comeback. In between: Latino Soul Brother Numero Uno of the 60's, boogaloo madness, the Fania Years.... Huge hit Rap-O Clap-o recorded in 1979 when rap first erupted.
He's a NYC musical icon, respected man, and gentle man, as you will see. Also 40 minutos calientes from the SOB show and some other surprises.
Some of the material included is not in top-rate audiovisual condition but is perfectly sound in historical, soulful essence. Please. enjoy yourselves!.
