Conj. Chappottín & Conj. Chapottin Valdés

A 1991 CD release on the Artex lable.
With two different bands.

Track # 1-9 featuring the band 'Conjunto Chappottin Valdes', with Ignacio "Mazacote" Carrillo and Eugenio "Raspa" Rodriguez on vocals and "El Niño Rivera" playing tres (Andres Echevarria).
"Niño Rivera" plays his ass off and takes several excellent tres solos.
The 9 sessions were re-released in 2000 on the French 'Sonodisc' label on a CD titled: "Quiquiriñao".
("Chapottin" incorrectly spelled with one "P").
Which is now out of print, though "used CD's" can be found on Amazon and Ebay.
