The album will surprise you with it's range of styles - from deep funk, latin soul, salsa, afro beat, cumbia, and more - making you hear classic tunes in a totally new way. From Light In The Attic: "From the Ebony Rhythm Band's deep funk cover of "Light My Fire" to the soulful version of "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones and the King Casuals, the unforgettable tracks keep on coming. There's also plenty of hard pounding salsa with Ray Barretto's cover of "Pastime Paradise(3)," Mongo Santamaria's cover of "Cloud Nine" and Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra's cover of Spoon's "I Turn My Camera On"." Mixed in with all the vintage tracks are a few contemporary artists giving classic tunes a new facelift including Mighty Mo and the Winchester 7 covering "The Message" and Nostalgia 77 doing up White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army." 11 Tracks in all.
