6. Fania Records Our Latin Thing 40th Anniversary Bundle

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Our Latin Thing, the Fania Records-produced concert film which captured the salsa movement at its peak, in the form of a 1971 Fania All-Stars (Ray Barretto, Hรฉctor Lavoe, Johnny Pacheco, Pete ‘El Conde’ Rodrรญguez) concert at New York’s Cheetah Club. The newly revived Fania recently released an Our Latin Thing 40th Anniversary Box Set, containing the movie and the soundtrack, on two discs each. The Our Latin Thing bundle currently for sale on their website throws in a baby-blue Our Latin Thing T- shirt and a replica of the original movie poster, for a very reasonable $39.95. For the real salsa-loving baller in your life, Fania has also put together a $649 “Ultimate Holiday Bundle” with its Salsa, A Musical History, The Fania All Stars Story, vintage Tito Puente The Complete 78’s Vol. I & II, Hector Lavoe The Complete Studio Albums Vol. I & II and El Barrio box sets, plus 2x disc greatest hits of every Fania artist from La Lupe to Ruben Blades (and a T-shirt).
