The Latin Souls live up to their name in this one. The singing is mostly soul of the Miracles/Impressions variety, and the beat is danceable boogaloo (Latin percussion). The title track of Tiger Boo-Ga-Loo really is a tiger of the idiom, as is "The Latin Souls Theme." Also worth considering for public play are a cover of "I Got You," "You've Been Talking About Me Baby," and "Look But Don't Touch." The rest are mostly fine, and even the closing cover of "Blowin' in the Wind" will appeal to someone.
