Most of this c.d is from the mid/late 60's when Mongo was heavily into producing funkier/groove orientated versions of Latin classics and pop tunes.
There are some excellent versions of "Green onions" and "Dock of the bay" and what best of package would be complete without the classic "Watermelon man" and "Afro blue" ?
Also included are couple of vocal tracks "La bamba" which i am sure you all know and the very disco/danceable "We got Latin soul" which is all out commercialism but enjoyable nevertheless.
With the inclusion of 5 bonus tracks it rounds out this c.d to about 78 mins which gives excellent value and a good insite into the afro/funk/pop stage of Mongo's career.
C.d also comes complete with full personel listings and pictures of some pretty cheesy looking album covers of Mongo posing with an assortment of Latin beauties (lucky so and so!!).
Well worth the bargain price for a super collection from a Latin Legend.
Oh and i nearly forgot - Mongo is pretty nifty on the Congas and Bongos by the way!
