LP cover: Pérez Prado -"Dengues" 1964

Dámaso Pérez Prado
Recorded in Lima. Peru in 1964,
a series of Dengue singles were
later released here, 12 on this LP.

I like the cover showing a red painted
car brake drum, which gives the Ritmo Dengue
it's distinctive sound, Prado is credited as
the originator of the Dengue rhythm.
