Early Cuban Danzón & Contradanza

This I received from the trombone player, 'Rick Elmore' in 1976 in New Orleans when I lived there. They are from 78' rpm records. I have no covers/info other than on track two, they play a short section from the American tune "For Me And My Gal" written by 'George W. Meyer' which was first published 1917.
