Here is an amazing Latin Disco/Soul track that has been growing on me lately.  It is called "Willowman" by The Willow Band.  I recently first heard it on a live mix on the Beats In Space website by DJ Balearic Mike.  Mike has been one of the dj's that created the term Balearic music which is basically music that sounds good on the dance floor.  The term originated in Ibiza at the famous Amnesia club 25 years ago.  "Willowman" song was released in 1976 as a 12" promotional only single.  Very little is known about this band except that it was composed of K. Guarino on strings and Richie Salgado on vocals. It was produced by Jesus Alvarez who was also involved in Shirley and Company and it was written by B. Bockhold and Alvarez.  There is a rumor that Joe Bataan was involved in this song.
