One part war, two parts Santana, a dash of Motown, immersed in a rich Puerto Rican stock, the Nombres were the undisputed kings of Northern Ohio's rust-belt barrios.  Following successive explosions of brown-eyed and latin soul in Los Angeles and New York in the mid and late 60's, Lorain, Ohio's Boricua underdogs went on a recording star in nearby Cleveland, going all-in on a series of no-budget recordings at Boddie and Way Out.  With a voice that rivaled any of the Fania roster, Willie Marquez led the rotating cast of latino teens through numerous underfunded recording sessions for the Day-Wood, Beth, and Lorain sounds imprints, the lo-fi fruits of which are compiled here.
