"Jawbone of an ass" (La Quijada) field recordings by Sam Eskin 1955 - Cuba

The field recordings (grabaciones en situ)
from the original vinyl LP by Cook titled:
"Jawbone of an ass" (La Quijada)
Recorded by Sam Eskin in 1955 in Santiago, Cuba.
Most likely he recorded these tracks on a
1950's Wollensak T500 reel to reel tape recorder.
(my Father owned this same model)

There were years when this LP became obscure, but
now thanks to the WWW, you now can find anything.
Great live recordings from 1955 (en vivo).
