45 RPM MADNESS

SALSA EXPRESS
COMMON CAUSE RECORDS
CC-005-B

This is a recent purchase I made on Ebay. Nice 80's swing from a not so know band. The track "El Poderoso" has a smooth underground sound, great for the dance floor. The other side of this 45 is a speedy merengue not liked around this block. Check out the sound clip!

El Poderoso

As a follower and fanatic of this wonderful genre, I find this to be the Holy Grail of record collecting. Not because their hard to find or are obscure; simply the magic in their musical arrangements are sensational. I have placed some samples to prove my madness. ENJOY....

Once again, another great buy from Ebay. I've been trying to stay away from sellers who inflate prices by bidding on the items themselves. This is an excellent record with a great "Mama Guela" version. Check out the magic Mr. Sanchez plays on its conga solo. WOW...
