Cumbias Solamente Cumbias, front

When you take this lp in your hands and look for any scratches,
you won’t find them. Listening to it however I’m affraid we have
to accept some noises towards the end of side-b. Especially
track 11. side-a is clean but is slightly off centre so getting
closer to track 6 it is starting to sound false a bit. Now about
the quality of the music, that’s another story. Take the second
number, ‘El aguacero’ by Anibal Velasquez, I fell in love with
that song straight away, the backing drums are somehow
quite different, I love’m, simply irresistible..
Overall, wonderful release, awesome
cover, some great tunes,
small disturbing

    Wonderful stuff. Check out Ludovic Beier, who frequently records with the great Manouche (French gypsy) guitarist, Angelo Debarre, for another great accordionist. Some of their duet albums are up on IsraBox.
