Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Salsoul is the ninth studio album by trailblazing Filipino African American singer Joe Bataan. The term "Salsoul" was born out of Bataan's love for salsa and soul, which developed during his youth in New York's Spanish Harlem. On Salsoul, the listener can get the full scope of Bataan's many talents. Ballads such as "Mujer Mia" and "Peace, Friendship, Solidarity" allow his heartfelt vocals to soar. The funky instrumental "Latin Strut," showcases his skills as a pianist and arranger. Bataan's Afro-Cuban rendition of the jazz standard "When Sunny Gets Blue," reaches new heights, delivering powerful, timeless reinterpretation – that of a unique performer inspired by bringing together different genres and cultures.
Limited to 1000 copies, the VMP exclusive version of Joe Bataan's Salsoul is pressed on 180g Neon Pink Marble vinyl at Precision Record Pressing (PRP). The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket. It was digitally remastered by Philip Shaw Bova.
