The boogaloo is an infectious and little-defined dance that dominated American dance records in the mid-60s. It was the joyous place where young black and Latin youths met and made sweet music. All previous Boogaloo compilations have focused on the Latin aspect, "Let's Do The Boogaloo" looks at how the music crossed over between the two. The boogaloo craze started in Chicago with a record by Tom & Jerryo, but it proved to have an enduring legacy with its hit-making potential running from 1965 through to 1968 - much longer than any other comparable dance. Our earliest records - The infectious 'Ready Steady Go' by Prince & Princess, produced by Rolling Stones producer Jimmy Miller - kicks us off with a frenetic beat and some Latin horns. It is the perfect boogaloo crossover.
