A big thank you. Pedro Laza is THE man. Any more? Has there ever been a bad Cumbia track? Just a case of some are not as magnificent as others.
You have put in a great deal of time in your posts, and it is appreciated.

Hi Moos – Is there any chance you have a full size, high resolution scan of that Pedro Laza cover art, and if you’d like to share it with me? Maybe I could send you something as a thank you, like my book on latin album cover art (Cocinando)? Let me know,
Very happy listening …! 😉
