Pérez Prado – 28 Great Songs

I don’t know a hellava lot of latin music but this feller created some wild stuff, freaky creaky stabbing keyboards and some crazy horn charts, frequent shouts of ‘Dilo’ which means ‘Say It’ but usually sounds like ‘Urghhh’. The bulk of this material is from the early to mid 60’s but there are a few ’50’s hits and some funky ’70’s action.

Best album? Try ‘Concierto Para Bongo’ from 1966.

I’ve been looking out for his version of The Monkees theme for sometime anyone out there who has it and the parent album, ‘Estas Si Viven (The Living End)’ sling it my way would ya.
