The whole LP is excellent, especially the rare tracks with Jorge Ben with Trio Mocotó. Wilson Simonal sings a killer arrangement of 'Rio Grande Do Sul Na Festa do Preto Forro'. Vol.2 is the best out of the 3 LP's. Out of print and hard to find.
"Os maiores sambas de todos os tempos" Vol. 3 - 1975

Side A: "Yo Tenia Una Mujer" Guaguancó Side B: "Al Pan y Al Vino" Guaguancó "Yo Tenia Una Mujer" has been out on LP for many years, but "Al Pan y Al Vino" with references to 'La Reforma Agraria' I have never seen or heard before listening to this 45rpm. "Al Pan y Al Vino"
My Mother brought this little "Reforma Agraria Va!" pin back from Cuba in 1959, I sold it on Ebay 6 years ago.
Cuban LP's and recordings which include particular "styles" and "forms" of (playing & singing) "Cuban" music that unfortunately have become, or are on their way to becoming lost art forms. As well as related materiel which may not be "directly" from Cuba.
Mostly LP's that are either long out of print and-or obscure and music from "my own personal collection".
Occasionally some Brasilian things will be added that are hard to find, even on the other great Brasilian blogs, many that are listed in my Blog links. And maybe some things that have nothing to do with Cuban or Brasilian music.
It takes time to do all this, scanning the covers, resizing and uploading, often changing & correcting the info.
Have fun! "The water most often tastes freshest at its source"
