There was a time I would never have believed an album with
such a cheap sleeve, naked girl and all, could be a good one.
Nowadays I know better. Au contraire, after collecting this
type of music some years I started loving them. The record
we have here is just what we like to find, thick carton sleeve,
heavy vinyl inside and luckily in good shape. It is from 1976
and contains a load of brilliant tracks, these cumbias are
sweet without exeption, just the way we love them, well
produced and compiled with passion. Get & Spread..

Many thanks for this cumbia and your other great recent posts of the City Boys Band and others!
Oh well… I should probably be posting this comment somewhere else (i.e.: one of your absolutely terrific Malian, Senegalese or Zimbabwean posts that I love so much), but, as a) I seem to recall your mentioning you don’t get a whole lot of feedback on this other stuff, b) I also like cumbia and vallenato quite a bit (truly enjoyed some pieces on this one) and c) I happen to be a Spanish-speaker, I’ll just go and leave my heartfelt thanks for your whole blog. Much, much enjoyed and appreciated.
I’m old enough to tell you that, in 1976, i was 8 and my father kept putting those tunes in the car during our holidays trips. Love them…
