These two LP's were both bootlegs of original Cuban recordings.
The Maype LP with the yellow cover, "Rezo De Santo" was put together by Gilberto Valdés.
It had a brief narration before each song by Carmelina Poldo.
There were no drums used on the Maype LP, instead they used the instrument known as Marimbula. Gilberto Valdés decided to take the end of his last name... 'Valdés' and the end of Marim"bula", put them together and he came up with "VALDIMBULA".
However, when the LP "Santeria Cubana" on the Tecca label came out.... they took all of the songs from "Rezo De Santo", cut out the narration before each song, then added them along with several more songs not originally on the first LP, including several poorly recorded tracks with an unknown batá group.
I put everything together in one file, totaling 26 tracks.
The Yankees must be pondering...
