Wilson and his Combo "Magic guitar" 1961 - Cuba

Above is the horrible 'Adria' bootleg reissue cover.
(are they sitting in a booth at a Howard Johnsons?)

"Magic guitar"
Wilson and his Combo
1961 Puchito vinyl LP
The original very "hip" Cuban cover on the 'Puchito' label.
With Wilson playing his 1961 Fender Stratocaster.

Wilson plays a killer guitar, sings and swings fabulously.
With a bongocero who plays con puro sabor Cubano.

With American 1950's "Doo Wop" influence as well as early 1961 twist grooves.
