Arsenio Rodriguez, voorkant


Arsenio Rodriguez’ elpee ‘Primitivo’ is al een tijdje de meest
gedownloade plaat op deze pagina. Vandaag hebben we er
een uit 1973 welke ook zeker de moeite waard is. Zijn werk
is uniek en van hoogstaande kwaliteit. Dit album bevat wat
hij noemde ‘Quindembo’ Afro Magic, de afro-cuban sound
waarvan hij de uitvinder was. Lees als je hem hebt binnen-
gehaald de achterkant en vind alle bijzonderheden.
Nota bene, de rauwe stem die je hoort is Arsenio’s..

Arsenio Rodriguez’lp ‘Primitivo’ is for quite some time now
the most downloaded album from this page. Today we’ve got
us another one which is very much worth downloading as well.
His work is unique and of high quality. This record contains what
he called ‘Quindembo’ Afro Magic, the afro-cuban sound which
he invented. Once you ‘ve got it, read the backsleeve and find
all the relevant information, lots of listening pleasure.
By the way, the raw voice we hear is Arsenio’s..

    Thanks for the upgrade Moos. It may be that the lp you have was released in ’73, but it was originally recorded in 1963. From his later years in the US, it’s more varied in textures & rhythms than his classic work in Cuba. Lots of fun tho’. As always, many thanks for your great posts!

    This is a fantastic record! Moos, after the demise of HTD I am plundering your archive, when I have time. I rely on your unbelievable “library” every week for my radio program, often with more than one track. Though using some audio tricks I learned while digitizing my records, I can make most of your records sound pristine. Better for broadcasting!

    THANKS so very much for spreading joy through a troubled and dark world!!
