"Designed for dancing" and "one of a series," That Latin Beat! is no more than a budget-label regurgitation of old, pre-high-fidelity material. Vocalists Yvonne Bouvier, Carmen Castillo, Pedro Berrios, Charito, Miguelito Valdes account for the album's value and interest. Valdes' rendering of Chano Pozo's "Blen Blen Blen" particularly is a joy. That Latin Beat! will suit completists and fans of the 78 rpm sound on LP.
