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, Mongo Santamaria's cover of Cloud Nine and Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra's cover of Spoon's I Turn My Camera On.
