VINYL CLASSICS - EAST SIDE REVUE (RAMPART RECORDS)














I bought this two record set back in the late 60's at Sounds Of Music Record Store on Whittier Blvd in East Los Angeles, California when I was still a DJ at East LA College.
  It has been my favorite piece in my music collection for the past 40 years and I played it mo much I had to buy a second copy.
  This fabulous collection put out by Rampart Records is the epitome of the Eastside Sound. The major artists are all represented here. Thee Midniters, Little Ray, Cannibal & The Headhunters, The Salas Brothers and many more. Each of the 40 tracks are great in their own way and take their place in the American Music Scene and the history of music from the East Los Angeles area.
  If you only pick up one piece to add to your collection, this would be the one. Though I believe it is long out of print there are copies still floating around. You can find it as a two record set or as two individual volumes on yellow wax and on colored vinyl.

NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED!!

This is soley for historical, educational and listening pleasure only.
